DOSAGE AND DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
In general, dosage should be adjusted according to the response of the individual patient
Usually, one injection of 1 ml per four weeks is adequate. PROP 100 should be administered by deep intramuscular injection
SIDE-EFFECTS AND SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS:
The following adverse reactions have been associated with androgen therapy
- Priapism and other signs of excessive sexual stimulation.
- In prepubertal boys:precocious sexual development, an increased frequency of erections,phallic enlargement and premature epiphyseal closure
-Oligospermia and decreased ejaculatory volume
-Water and salt retention.
If androgen-associated adverse reactions occur, treatment should be interrupted and, after disappearance of the symptoms, be resumed at a lower dosage. Patients with latent or overt cardiac failure, renal dysfunction, hypertension epilepsy or migraine(or a history of these conditions) should be monitored since androgens may occasionally induce salt and fluid retention. Androgens should be used cautiously in prepubertal boys to avoid premature epiphyseal closure or precocious sexual development. A decrease in protein bound iodine (PBI) may occur, but this has no clinical significance
