Testosterone Buccal Tablet Information

The testosterone buccal tablet (StriantTM) is a prescription testosterone replacement medication. It comes as a special tablet that is applied to the gums twice a day. Common side effects include pain, tenderness, and irritation of the gums.
 
Prior to using the testosterone buccal tablet, inform your healthcare provider about any other medical conditions you have and any other drugs you are taking, including nonprescription products and supplements. This drug is not right for everyone, and discussing these things with your healthcare provider will help ensure a safe, effective treatment process.
 
As a buccal tablet, this product slowly releases testosterone that is directly absorbed through the cheeks and gums into the bloodstream. This means it bypasses the liver, where it would otherwise be destroyed, allowing significant amounts of the hormone to reach the bloodstream.
