Cidoviron balances a deficiency of androgen formation which begins to fall gradually with increasing age. Therefore , Cidoviron is suitable for the treatment of all conditions caused by deficient endogenous androgen formation . In the recommended therapeutic dosage, Cidoviron will not impair spermatogenesis. Cidoviron is especially well tolerated by the liver .
Indications &usage :
Reduced efficiency in middle and advanced age :
Complaints attributable to androgen- deficiency, such as reduced efficiency,
easy fatigability, lack of concentration, weak memory, disturbances of libido and potency, irritability, disturbances of sleep, depressive moods, and general vegetative complaints, can be overcome or improved by the use of Cidoviron tablets .
Potency disturbances :
Potency disorders based on an androgen deficiency are eliminated by administration of Cidoviron. If other factors are the sole cause or if they contribute to the disorders, Cidoviron may be administered in support of other therapeutic measures .
Growth, development and function of androgen dependent target organs are stimulated by Cidoviron. It promotes development of secondary male sex characteristics in cases of prepuberal androgen deficiency .
Cidoviron eliminates deficiency symptoms in cases where a loss of gonadal function has occurred postpuberally .
Oligoazospermia and deficient Leydig cell secretion may be the cause of
infertility. With Cidoviron sperm count and sperm quality as well as
fructose concentration in the ejaculate can be improved or normalized ,
thus increasing the chances of procreation .
Carcinoma of the prostate , previous or existed liver tumors .
If in individual cases frequent or persistent erections occur, the dose should
be reduced or the treatment discontinued in order to avoid injury to the penis.
Drug interactions :

increases in toxicity, (e.g. ciclosporin, antidiabetics , levothyroxine and
anticoagulants such as warfarin) .

Warnings & precautions:
Androgens are not suitable for enhancing muscular development in the healthy individuals or for increasing physical ability .
