What is Striant?

Striant is the brand name of the active ingredient testosterone in a buccal system formulation intended for men with a condition called hypogonadism. Men with hypogonadism produce either insufficient or no testosterone at all. Striant replaces the testosterone. Striant is administered twice daily by placing the buccal tablet directly onto the gum above the incisor tooth. The buccal system releases testosterone throughout the day in a controlled manner and is absorbed into the bloodstream.
