This is a gray area. Testosterone is a schedule III drug and is illegal to obtain without a prescription. The compounding pharmacies and male HRT clinics (also many anti-aging clinics) often have a doctor in-house that will interpret your test results and have a phone consultation with you. That doctor, who you never see in person, will prescribe your testosterone (as well as growth hormone, which is an even grayer area) and any other ancillary drugs ( such as Nolvadex or Arimidex to prevent side effects like gynecomastia ). They usually don’t accept insurance and will ship your HRT drugs out by mail within one week. SO… technically, you’re getting your drugs from a legal pharmacy, which also happens to have a doctor on staff to provide the prescription. I don’t think you’d have anything to worry about in court. The HRT or Anti-Aging clinic, on the other hand, might have some legal questions to answer should the DA or DEA ever decide to pay them a visit, which has happened in the past.
Testsosterone implants contain 800 mg of testosterone (usually in the form of four 200 mg pellets). They are implanted into the buttocks or abdomen, and provide testosterone replacement for around six months. Implants are replaced periodically, once symptoms of testosterone deficiency recur. Inserting the testosterone pellets is a minor surgical procedure, requiring local anaesthetic ; this is the major limitation of this method of treatment. However, men using this form of testosterone replacement are usually satisfied with the method, and are more likely to continue being treated than men using other modes of testosterone replacement.
