You should be aware that James Barrett, Consultant Psychiatrist and Lead Clinician at the Gender Identity Clinic, and Leighton Seal, Consultant Endocrinologist, have been advised there are currently problems in obtaining supplies of Sustanon from the manufacturers.
One acceptable alternative to Sustanon is Testosterone Enantate, 250mgs by IM injection, given at the same frequency as your Sustanon prescription.
We have been advised in some parts of the country there also problems accessing Testosterone Enantate. If this is the case, Virormone, given as an equivalent dose at the same frequency as Sustanon/Testosterone Enantate is the next best alternative.
Once Sustanon/Testosterone Enantate become available again, you should be taken off Virormone and transferred back to what you’re used to using.
If there are problems obtaining both Testosterone Enantate and Virormone, you may need to be moved to Nebido. Nebido requires a specific loading phase so we do advise you to contact our Clinical Nurse Specialist, Iffy Middleton, for advice prior to you taking this. Iffy will also be able to advise patients moving back to Sustanon from Nebido should supplies become available and if this is deemed necessary.
Should you wish to speak with our Clinical Nurse Specialist, or if you have any further questions, you can contact the Gender Identity Clinic on 0208 483 2801.
