Now Offering AVEED

I now offer the newest form of TRT, AVEED.  This is a 10 week lasting TRT injection.  Please read below prior to deciding if you wish to proceed with this form of testosterone replacement therapy.

Explain to patients:

  • The importance of providing an accurate medical history about any previous allergic reactions to AVEED or its components (testosterone undecanoate, castor oil and benzyl benzoate)
  • AVEED can only be administered by a trained Healthcare Provider in a certified healthcare setting
  • The risks of serious POME reactions and anaphylaxis associated with AVEED
  • POME is not a blood clot
  • How to recognize the symptoms of serious POME reactions and anaphylaxis
  • Report signs and symptoms to the healthcare setting staff immediately. These include:
- swelling of your face, tongue, or throat
