    I am 51 and was getting testostorone injections every 3 eeks for the last 13 years. I decided to try this since my insurance would cover with only a 40 copay. I won't get it again. It was very painful, I am sore and black and blue. I don't feel any better. The injections worked fine so I will go back to them. I do not recommend this drug!
