PHARMACHOLOGIC EFFECT

An androgenic preparation containing a mixture of different testosterone esters.
Testosterone is necessary for the formation of testicles, the prostate gland, seminal vesicles, and the development of secondary and tertiary sexual characteristics. Participates in the formation of the constitution of the body and sexual behavior, activates libido and potency, stimulates spermatogenesis, weakens the negative manifestations of men's menopause.
Testosterone is an antagonist of female sex hormones - estrogens.
It causes inhibition of the gonadotropic function of the pituitary gland and suppresses the function of mammary glands in women. During the treatment, there may be phenomena of masculinization.
Testosterone has an anabolic effect: it stimulates protein synthesis, increases calcium fixation in bones, increases muscle mass, stimulates the formation of erythropoietin in the kidneys, raises hemoglobin levels in the blood.

In healthy men, the administration of exogenous testosterone inhibits the release of one's own (endogenous) hormone by inhibiting the secretion of LH.
In high doses, the drug suppresses spermatogenesis, influencing the reverse inhibition of FSH secretion.
In men with functional pituitary insufficiency, testosterone removes the symptoms of hypogonadism.
If impotence is not caused by hypogonadism, then the drug does not work.
Ester testosterone esters have different rates of absorption and elimination, which provides rapid development of the effect and a prolonged effect (up to 4 weeks) after a single injection: testosterone propionate is active during the first 24 hours, the action of testosterone phenylpropionate and isocaproate begins 24 hours after injection and lasts up to 2 weeks.
Testosterone capronate begins its action at a time when the effect of testosterone isocapro- nate and phenylpropionate is discontinued.
