As a male ages, various changes occur at a chemical level. The brain's pituitary gland commands the testicles to produce less testosterone. The change in this hormone level can cause a loss of hair, prolonged lethargic periods, and a low sex drive. Use of a testosterone patch may help to combat these changes. There are several kinds of patches available, each with their own dosage and application method. Testosterone patches can only be obtained with a prescription written by an accredited medical professional.

Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Speak with your family doctor to find out if your symptoms are indicative of a testosterone imbalance. Your doctor may be able to prescribe a testosterone patch treatment or refer you to a specialist for additional assistance.

  2. 2

    Locate an endocrinologist or a urologist using the network provided by your insurance company or in the "Resources" section of this webpage. Describe your symptoms in their entirety so that the doctor can assess whether a hormone treatment is appropriate.

  3. 3

    Take the prescription to your local pharmacy. Testosterone patches are a less popular medication and may be out of stock at your pharmacy; if so, you may have to wait several days for delivery. Call ahead to make sure your medication is in stock.

Tips and warnings

  • Use testosterone patches only as indicated or prescribed by a doctor.
  • Contact your doctor if you experience any side effects.
  • Itching or irritation or discomfort at site of application may occur the first few days as your body adjusts to the patch.
