Trends in Testosterone Prescription and Public Health Concerns UROLOGIC CLINICS OF NORTH AMERICA Gabrielsen, J. S., Najari, B. B., Alukal, J. P., Eisenberg, M. L. 2016; 43 (2): 261-?


Testosterone supplementation therapy (TST) has become increasingly popular since the turn of the century. Most prescriptions in the U.S. are written by primary care providers, endocrinologists, or urologists. The FDA has requests pharmaceutical companies provide more long term data on efficacy and safety of testosterone products. Results from these studies will help define the appropriate population for TST going forward. It is hoped that these data combined with physician and public education will minimize inappropriate prescribing and allow those likely to benefit from TST to receive it.
