Androstenetrione is promoted as an alternative to “prohormones” such as androstenedione. Marketers claim that androstenetrione increases the body's natural testosterone levels and therefore is free from the negative side effects of prohormones. There is no reliable evidence to back these claims.

Special Precautions and Warnings
Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Not enough is known about the use of androstenetrione during pregnancy and breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.
Prostate cancer and other hormone-sensitive cancers: Androstenetrione might increase testosterone levels. Men with hormone-sensitive conditions such as prostate cancer should avoid using androstenetrione.
Liver disease: Androstenetrione might increase testosterone levels. Increased testosterone is associated with liver problems. If you have liver disease, don’t take androstenetrione. If you have taken androstenetrione, it would be a good idea to have liver function tests (LFTs) done.
