Medication information

Axiron 30mg/dose top. liquid

This medication is a male-hormone supplement. Typically, it is used for hormonal problems. It may also be used for sexual problems in men. It requires a few weeks to take effect.

Instructions

For the pre-measured dose, position the nozzle over the applicator and push the plunger all the way down. Apply the solution to the axilla using the applicator. If two applications to the same axilla is required, the product should be allowed to dry before the second is applied. Allow the solution to dry before getting dressed.

If an antiperspirant or deodorant is used, it should be applied prior to application of the solution. Avoid swimming or washing the application site until 2 hours following application.

This medication is typically used only once a day. However, your doctor or pharmacist may have suggested a different schedule that is more appropriate for you. Apply it regularly and continuously to maintain its beneficial effect.

If you remember missing a dose within 12 hours of the time it is usually taken, apply it as soon as you remember, then take the next dose at the regularly scheduled time. If the dose is missed by more than 12 hours, skip the missed dose. Do not double the next dose to catch up.
