Likewise, the goal of all medically prescribed TRT programs, whether a doctor has prescribed testosterone propionate vs. testosterone cypionate or another form of supplemental testosterone, is the same – to restore the patient’s male hormone levels back to within the upper end of the healthy range. This is the range that provides patients with the greatest amount of health benefits without leading to any of the potential health problems that have been linked to having excessively high testosterone levels. And since TRT is a long-term form of treatment, the goal is to make it possible for patients to continue enjoying those benefits for as long as they continue using a medically supervised hormone replacement program.

Fluticasone propionate is a synthetic (man-made) corticosteroid that is used on the skin (topically). The naturally-occurring corticosteroid is cortisol or hydrocortisone produced by the adrenal gland. Corticosteroids have potent anti-inflammatory actions and also suppress the immune response. Similar drugs include betamethasone dipropionate (Diprolene), clobetasol propionate (Temovate), halobetasol propionate (Ultravate), betamethasone dipropionate (Diprosone), desoximetasone (Topicort), halcinonide (Halog), amcinonide (Cyclocort), triamcinolone acetonide (Kenalog), fluocinolone acetonide (Synalar), hydrocortisone butyrate (Locoid), hydrocortisone valerate (Westcort), and mometasone furoate (Elocon). The FDA approved topical fluticasone propionate in December, 1990.
