Is anyone taking testosterone therapy and how does FAA view this?

IIRC with injections you have to wait four hours before flying. About it.

Depends on WHY you are taking testosterone therapy.

If it's for a sexual dysphoria in particular it becomes kind of involved:

If it's for simple replacement and the underlying cause for low testosterone is not itself disqualifying, it's generally no big deal.

And if IIRC, there is no wait for Androgel, etc.
