Methyltestosterone (brand names:[1] Android, Testred, Virilon) is a 17-alpha-alkylated anabolic steroid used to treat men with a testosterone deficiency.[2] It bears close structural similarity to testosterone, but has a methyl group at C17 in order to increase oral bioavailability.

Confiscated methyltestosterone.
