The content on this website is intended to provide general information about our clinic and services, and should not be mistaken for medical advice. We prescribe testosterone and other hormone therapy only after an in-office, comprehensive evaluation indicates that hormone therapy is safe and medically necessary. We do not prescribe testosterone or human growth hormone (HGH) or human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) solely for bodybuilding or athletic performance enhancement, or for solely "anti-aging" purposes. We do not prescribe HGH for off-label uses under any circumstances.
NOTE: Our physicians are "naturopathic physicians," not "physicians" or "osteopathic physicians," and neither "TRT" nor "integrative men's health" are "medical specialties."

Nicotine overdose is rare, but possible. Nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) products are labeled to match the amount of nicotine you get from NRT to the amount you got from tobacco. If used this way, you should get a nicotine dose fairly close to what you’ve been getting. You don’t want to get more than that, because higher doses of nicotine can cause harm. To avoid this, follow dosing instructions carefully. Also, don’t use heat (like a heating pad or heat lamp) on the skin near your nicotine patch – you could absorb more nicotine due to the increased blood supply.
If you test out as deficient in testosterone, or if you have symptoms of low testosterone, you likely want to do something about it. There are definitely over-the-counter supplements designed for this very purpose. ( Alpha Male® and Tribex® are the most potent.) And while effective, they're best used by healthy younger men who want a boost in T levels for bodybuilding purposes. They probably aren't the best choice for men who are clinically low and who've made the choice to undergo what's usually a lifetime commitment to testosterone replacement therapy, or TRT.
