The FDA just approved underarm roll-on testosterone, even though this brand new product already comes with a boxed warning. That’s right. Before it even hits pharmacy shelves, Axiron comes with some pretty serious cautions.
The most important of which is this: Do not touch anyone after you’ve rolled on your underarm testosterone. That means no hugging your kids and grandchildren, or you could cause them severe damage.
And then there are all the problems this product might cause you, ranging from increased PSA levels to worse BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia) symptoms to increased red blood cells (which can increase stroke risk) to vomiting and diarrhea. Oh, and did I mention that Axiron is flammable?!
If you’re looking to boost your testosterone levels, there are much safer ways to do it–ways that won’t endanger you or your family, and that are not flammable.
