Why does watson testosterone cypionate mfg not work as good as Depo-Provera testosterone cypionate?

Why does watson testosterone cypionate mfg not work as good as Depo-Provera testosterone cypionate?

USA model?: Manufactured in usa by upjohn and watson. If not a counterfeited product, i would think both should work about the same. I did see one non-professional website that claimed that "it takes longer for the watson form to take effect, " but I do not know if this is true or not. Also get your levels checked after you are started on this. If the level is good, your symptom control should be good. ...Read more

Does deltasone (prednisone) increase testosterone in man?

No: Deltasone is a brand of prednisone. While Prednisone is a steroid, it is a corticosteroid, not a sex steroid w/anabolic & androgenic properties, like testosterone.

You can shut down acth w/o affecting lh in your pituitary. ...Read more

Does nolvadex (tamoxifen) decrease testosterone production in males?

No: Nolvadex, a brand of tamoxifen, is a selective estrogen receptor modulator. As such, there are some small studies that suggest that it can actually increase testosterone production in med.

Neither: Androgel & Androderm (along w/axiron, fortesta, striant & testim) are just different forms of testosterone. None are better for everyone.
