Tell Men Not to Sniff After Administering Natesto Testosterone Gel

Men will ask about a new "no touch" NASAL testosterone gel called Natesto (nah-TES-toh).

The idea is to help reduce skin-to-skin transfer. Natesto is applied inside the nose with an applicator...instead of on the skin like the other testosterone gels (AndroGel, Testim).

Natesto comes in a lower strength than the other testosterone gels. That's because the nasal passages are highly permeable...and absorption through the nose avoids first-pass liver metabolism.
