“Some of these just make sense. I don’t know all of the labeling changes, but most stuff like that makes sense. Don’t take it if it isn’t prescribed by a physician. Don’t take it unless you have low testosterone, things like that—I think that makes perfect sense.
I think most people think that way, but I do know that testosterone clinics have opened up, which is why a lot of this is happening. All of a sudden, we have more headaches in getting approval for testosterone replacement from a lot of insurance companies.
I know where my son lives in Houston, right next to him is a testosterone clinic where men can just walk in, complain about something, and get shots. I think that’s where this is coming from, honestly. I think it’s just been overprescribed for people who don’t really need it. It is good for people who are doing that to be warned that it is not good.”
