The good news is that the research indicates that testosterone boosters are no better than placebo, and in some cases may cause a dangerous increase in blood pressure. So, don't buy a testosterone booster unless you know exactly what you're getting. So, do I recommend it to my patients? Yes. Testosterone boosters are an important part of your care and management of your hyperandrogenism. You will feel more confident that you are going to get the best results, and your treatment will be more effective. I use the word "boosters" instead of "topicals." It makes sense to me because, while these products are not "topicals," they contain some of the same active ingredients as topicals, and they may be used for the same purposes. It's best to avoid them if you can. I want to use anabolic steroids with testosterone boosters. Will this cause side effects? No. It may seem complicated because you are taking two substances that will affect each other. The testosterone will cause a higher release of the anabolic steroids in your blood than the testosterone boosters will. But this is normal and the anabolic steroids will not cause any harm. This is an uncommon problem and most people will be fine using the testosterone and the boosters.
