It can usually reverse problems of sexual disinterest and impotency, and is sometimes used to increase the sperm count. The drug does not stimulate the body to produce testosterone, but is simply an oral androgen substitute that is used to compensate for a lack of the natural male androgen. It is also effective act as an anti-aromatase in the body, actually preventing or slowing the conversion of androgens into estrogens.

Each uncoated tablet contains:
Mesterolone 25 mg
Mesviron 25 tablet contains 25mg of the androgen Mesterolone.
Mesterolone balances a deficiency of androgen formation, which begins to fall gradually with increasing age. Therefore, Mesterolone is suitable for treatment of all conditions caused by deficient endogenous androgen formation. In the recommended therapeutic dosage, Mesterolone will not impair spermatogenesis. Mesterolone is especially well tolerated by the liver.
INDICATIONS AND USES
- Declining physical activity and mental alertness in middle and old aged men.
Reduced efficiency, easy fatigability, lack of concentration, weak memory, disturbances of libido and potency, irritability, disturbances of sleep, depressive moods, and general vegetative complaints are often attributed to androgen-deficiency. These complaints can be overcome or improved by the use of Mesviron 25 tablets.
- Potency disturbances
Mesviron 25 overcomes potency disturbances due to androgen-deficiency. It may also be of use as supplementary therapy in cases of diminished potency where androgen-deficiency is not the primary cause.
Growth, development, and function of androgen-dependent target organs are stimulated by Mesviron 25. It promotes development of secondary male sex characteristics in cases of prepuberal hypogonadism. Full clinical and laboratory investigations are necessary in all cases of young patients prior to commencement of treatment. Mesviron 25 may also be used as a substitution therapy in cases where a loss of gonadal function has occurred postpuberally.
Oligozoospermia and deficient Leydig-cell secretion may be the cause of infertility. With Mesterolone treatment, sperm count can be increased, the quality improved and, furthermore, a higher fructose concentration up to normal values can be achieved thus increasing the chances of procreation.
In-patients with carcinoma of the prostate, androgen therapy of any kind, including the use of Mesviron 25 is contraindicated.
The administration of Mesviron 25 is recommended only for male patients.
Regular examinations of the prostate should be carried out prophylactically.

- In Oligozoospermia
One tablet of Mesviron 25 twice or three times daily for a cycle of spermatogenesis, i.e. 9O days.
In case of simultaneously impaired gonadotrophic excretion, a combined therapy with gonadotrophic hormone exhibiting FSH activity is recommended for the commencement of treatment (e.g. 2000 IU serum gonadotrophin IM twice weekly up to a total amount of 12 000 IU).
