Testosterone cypionate (Depo-Testosterone) is an inexpensive drug used to support normal male development such as muscle growth, facial hair and deep voice. This drug is more popular than comparable drugs.
Testosterone cypionate is a white or creamy white crystalline powder, odorless or almost so and stable in the air. It is insoluble in water, freely soluble in alcohol, chloroform, dioxane, ether and soluble in vegetable oils.
DEPO-Testosterone injection, for intramuscular injection, contains testosterone cypionate which is the oil-soluble 17 (beta) -cyclopentylpropionate ester of the androgenic hormone testosterone.
