Absolutely not: I do not recommend purchasing any medication online, especially hormones like testosterone. If you have been suffering from signs and symptoms of low testosterone, the best strategy is to see your doctor. If signs/symptoms plus blood tests reveal testosterone deficiency or inadequacy, there are several types of HRT available, including patches, troches, creams/gels, injections, and pellets.
