This prescription item requires a pre approved authority from the Government in order to get this item at the quoted price. Authority prescriptions need to be applied for by the doctor writing the script and can include reasons such as increased quantities due to dosage, increased repeats, use for a pre determined specified use, or the nature of the medication itself requiring specialist interaction. In the event that an authority is not granted on the script, the price will revert to the private price quoted for that item


This item contains more than one pack of a prescription product. Before this can be dispensed the doctor has to give approval. The prescription must be written for the total quantity or the prescription must be endorsed by your doctor "Regulation 24" otherwise we will be unable to dispense the increased amount. If you proceed with the order without approval, we will only send out one pack at the single pack price and refund the difference. Eg If your prescription is written out for 30 Tablets with 5 repeats and it does not have “Regulation 24 “ written on the script, the ONLY quantity we can dispense is 30 at one time. Further dispensing of this product could only occur after an appropriate length of time - usually 21 days but depends on dosage. In this example if you would like to obtain 180 Tablets then the doctor must endorse the prescription “Regulation 24” or the quantity must be written out for 180 and not 30. NB Conditions apply on the writing of a Regulation 24 prescription. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for details.

We can no longer accept signed authority forms from your doctor as permission to dispense more than one pack. Please contact our pharmacist for more information.

If you order this item as Private, NO PBS stickers will be issued. Once any prescription order has been sent the product cannot be returned for a refund even if your doctor changes your medication or you have an adverse reaction.

Product Description

The name of your medicine is Andriol Testocaps.

A doctor's prescription is required to obtain this medicine.

Each capsule contains 40 mg of the active ingredient called testosterone undecanoate.

Andriol Testocaps belong to a group of medicines called androgens, a type of sex hormone necessary for the normal sexual development of males.

This leaflet answers some common questions about Andriol Testocaps. It does not contain all the available information.

It does not take the place of talking to your doctor or pharmacist.

Keep this information with the pack. You may wish to read it again.

What Andriol Testocaps are used for

Andriol Testocaps are used to replace the body's natural sex hormone testosterone when not enough is made by the body.

Because of problems with the pituitary or testis, the production of testosterone by the body decreases.

Men may suffer from complaints such as depression, loss of motivation or concentration, and loss of sexual desire. Andriol Testocaps can relieve these complaints. It can also relieve these symptoms in men who have had their testis removed. Relief of symptoms usually starts within a few days, but optimal results are obtained after weeks to months of treatment.
