Proviron is an oral androgen preparation which has only a slight central inhibitory effect and, consequently, no restrictive effect on testicular function. Proviron balances a deficiency of androgen formation which begins to fall gradually with increasing age. Therefore, Proviron is suitable for the treatment of all conditions caused by deficient endogenous androgen formation. In the recommended therapeutic dosage, Proviron will not impair spermatogenesis. Proviron is especially well tolerated by the liver.
Proviron is well tolerated even as regards liver function. Laboratory tests conducted during high-dosed and long-term treatment produced no evidence for an injurious effect. If, in individual cases, frequent or persistent erections occur, the dose should be reduced or the treatment discontinued in order to avoid injury to the penis.
