Methyltestosterone is an orally available form of the primary male androgen testosterone. Methyltestosterone is an oral steroids. It is quite androgenic, with moderate anabolic effects. It binds with cytoplasmic testosterone receptors in androgen responsive organs and tissues and forms hormone receptor complex. This hormone-receptor complex binds with DNA and enhances DNA transcription and formation of mRNA which ultimately leads to modification of protein synthesis. It promotes growth and development male sex organs and secondary sexual characters and maintains proper sexual functioning. It also exerts anabolic effect on skeleton and skeletal muscles and accelerates erythropoiesis. It also exerts inhibitory, antiestrogenic effects on hormone responsive breast tumors and metastases.
Methyl testosterone is combined with various estrogen to treat menopausal symptoms, dysmenorrhea, menorrhagia, osteoporosis and to suppress post partum lactation.
