Androgen misuse

Prof. David Handelsman MBBS, FRACP, PhD

Androgen misuse is systematic over-prescribing of testosterone or its synthetic analogs for unproven, “off-label” medical indications. Misuse is the grey zone between legitimateandrogen use for physiological replacement or pharmacological therapy and outright abuse, the illicit use of androgens for non-medical cosmetic, recreational or occupational (including sports doping) purposes. Inevitably, the boundary between enthusiastic advocacy for novel but unproven use and misuse is necessarily vague although either end of that spectrum is readily recognizable.
