“Testosterone: A Man’s Guide” by Nelson Vergel

Nelson Vergel’s new book “Testosterone: A Man’s Guide” is especially useful for people with HIV who are considering testosterone therapy to address fatigue and other problems. A well-known HIV treatment activist and educator, Nelson currently moderates the pozhealth group on Yahoo Groups–the largest online forum of its kind. He also serves on the federal government (Department of Health and Human Services) HIV treatment guidelines panel. His knowledge and understanding of how best to use anabolic steroids and testosterone replacement therapy are unparalleled, but he is also extremely well-informed about a wide range of HIV therapies, including use of supplements for symptoms and side effects.

The book also has much useful information on “compounding pharmacies,” licensed pharmacies that do their own compounding or assembling of certain drugs. Compounding pharmacies are a little-known resource, yet often can provide standard quality drugs (such as testosterone) at a tiny fraction of the cost charged by regular pharmacies.

Purchase the book at the NYBC online store:
