Reviews for Aveed
For Hypogonadism, Male "If you're looking to raise your T levels then avoid Aveed at all costs .I was getting injections for 7 months and Aveed did absolutely nothing to raise my T levels. My back and arms broke out in acne which never happened before."
For Hypogonadism, Male "I CRASH at 8 weeks and Aveed NEVER lasts 10 weeks and my doctor refuses to give me a topical to help me get by that 2 week crash until my next shot, seriously thinking about going back to topical, horrible feeling for 2 weeks between every shot."
For Hypogonadism, Male "I've been taking Aveed as HRT for almost 2 years now and I love it! My T levels are always level and I don't have to worry about sticking myself every 2 weeks. I definitely recommend this to my fellow trans folk out there looking for a good hormone therapy replacement option."
Frequently asked questions
For Hypogonadism, Male "I have been on Aveed for six month.5 weeks After the 3rd shot I had blood work. My test levels are 400. Witch is pretty low. Before getting on Aveed. I was on test cypionate. 2 injection per week of .5 ml each. My test level then where at 890 . Plus every time you get an injection you have to go to your doctor'said office and stay under observation for 30 mn. So you get charge $35 for the shot and $50 for the injection. Cypionate with anastrozol for a month supply would only cost me $12."
For Hypogonadism, Male "Received my first shot yesterday in term of effectivity I'm not sure yet however I did have some severe side effects following the injection. Dizziness, sweating, and I fainted however it passed in about 10 minutes."
For Hypogonadism, Male "I do not like Aveed at all. The shot is slow and painful, it has caused me to become very irritable and depressed, and it has caused severe back pain. It has not helped my T-level at all. I'm going back to the 2-week shot that raised my T-level and helped me feel better than I had in many years."
For Hypogonadism, Male "Received first Aveed injection earlier today. Area where shot was administered is still sore after 13 hours. I do feel somewhat like my energy level has increased somewhat Will continue to report how I feel"
For Hypogonadism, Male "Cost varied widely $274 first time then $30 next two. Called to refill and now it’s $900! Can’t get an explanation. I received a letter asking for me to complete a survey for $50. I did and about 90 days later I received the check which bounced and I was also charged $12 for the returned item. I spent a week trying to get anyone to help me. Horrible customer service! Finally I emailed Endo’s president and they sent over another check for $50. It also bounced. I started emailing again asking for payment and now for the $24 in fees. Got a check for $12 and it also bounced. Got Tina in risk management and was promised this would all be corrected and I would be compensated for time and aggravation. I finally received a money order for what I was owed plus the returned check fees. Tina will not discuss my time or aggravation any longer. Don’t use this drug. Endo doesn’t care about its customers. I’ve already made the switch to every two weeks."
For Hypogonadism, Male "After taking TC for 15 years I thought I could get a break from 52 shots a year. I am usually between 600-800. My last level on Aveed was 310. Excluding the drive each way, by the time I wait in the waiting room, wait in the treatment room, wait for them to prepare and administer the injection, then wait another 20-30 minutes, it is a lot of wasted time for a shot. Each injection seems to be a big deal to them. No some seems confident in administering a butt injection. So far I had 4 different nurses administer the shot. I wish they just inject it fast, it seems like it takes forever. The shot itself is uncomfortable but tolerable. The worse part is waiting the 30 minutes afterwards, when you get up it feels sore and feels like something is in your back pocket. The nurse said my doctor was checking on doing 2 shots per visit to get my levels up but I am not sure that can happen."
For Hypogonadism, Male "Working well so far (on second injection). Less hassle than regular injections or gels and I don't have to worry about transferring it to my girlfriend."
For Hypogonadism, Male "Worthless. My T Level dropped to 411. I was at 800 on my personal injection. Not worth the effort. Avoid."
For Hypogonadism, Male "On 4th shot cannot not tell anything. Not worth the money. Better off to get a shot every 2 weeks ( a lot better) a least I felt better."
For Hypogonadism, Male "Week 2-4 I feel like I’m 18 again with a painful 24/7 erection. On week 5 it starts to level out by week 8 I’m a tired, depressed couch ridden mess"
For Hypogonadism, Male "Works great for me"
