Aveed and Pregnancy

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant.

The FDA categorizes medications based on safety for use during pregnancy. Five categories - A, B, C, D, and X, are used to classify the possible risks to an unborn baby when a medication is taken during pregnancy.

Aveed falls into category X. It has been shown that women taking Aveed during pregnancy may have babies born with problems. There are no situations where the benefits of the medication for the mother outweigh the risks of harm to the baby. Aveed should never be used by pregnant women.

Aveed Overdose

If you receive too much Aveed, call your healthcare provider or local Poison Control Center, or seek emergency medical attention right away.

If Aveed is administered by a healthcare provider in a medical setting, it is unlikely that an overdose will occur. However, if overdose is suspected, seek emergency medical attention.

What should I avoid while receiving Aveed (testosterone injection)?

Uses For Aveed

Testosterone injection is used for the treatment of men whose bodies do not make enough natural testosterone, a condition called hypogonadism. Testosterone is a male hormone responsible for the growth and development of the male sex organs and maintenance of secondary sex characteristics.

Testosterone injection is also used in women with breast cancer that has spread to other parts of the body (metastatic).

Testosterone injection is also used to stimulate delayed puberty in male teenagers.

This medicine is to be given only by or under the direct supervision of your doctor. The AveedĀ® brand is only available under a restricted distribution program called the AveedĀ® REMS program.
