Is testosterone replacement therapy the same as taking steroids? 

In short: yes. Testosterone cypionate is classified as an AAS (anabolic-androgenic steroid).  The difference between recreational and therapeutic testosterone involves the compounds used and dosage administered.  The Edge believes in restoring men to a therapeutic testosterone level.  This means restoring men to a therapeutic range of 600-1000 ng/dL.  This therapeutic range involves weekly injections ranging between 100-200 mg/week.  Individuals taking anabolic steroids for recreational use and gain, i.e., not for the purpose of improving/ maintaining testosterone therapeutically, generally take an amount that can be two, three, four, and even five times more than the recommended dosage.

Please note: the goal of The Edge is to provide a dosage of testosterone that will restore/maintain its patients to therapeutic range.  We will not provide the means to “dose” beyond what is considered therapeutic range.
