Aveed

OVERDOSE

There have been no reports of overdosage in the Aveed clinical trials. There is one report of acute overdosage with use of an approved injectable testosterone product: this subject had serum testosterone levels of up to 11,400 ng/dL with a cerebrovascular accident.

Treatment of overdosage would consist of discontinuation of Aveed together with appropriate symptomatic and supportive care.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

Aveed should not be used in any of the following patients:

  • Men with carcinoma of the breast or known or suspected carcinoma of the prostate [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS].
  • Women who are or may become pregnant, or who are breastfeeding. Testosterone can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman. Aveed may cause serious adverse reactions in nursing infants. Exposure of a fetus or nursing infant to androgens may result in varying degrees of virilization [see Use In Specific Populations].
  • Men with known hypersensitivity to Aveed or any of its ingredients (testosterone undecanoate, refined castor oil, benzyl benzoate).
