Default Is Testerone Replacement Therapy allowed in prisons.

If someone has low testosterone and is prescribed testosterone on the outside will they be allowed to continue testosterone replacement therapy while in jail/prison?

It depends on the prison, and many times the prison doctor. If it is included in the RX formulary, it is available for inmates, but the doctor still has to prescribe it.

As stated before, it all depends on the doctor. I was in the Federal system for 2 years, and when I went in, they didn't carry half of my medication and changed it to something else that didn't work, and I had to fight with them to give me the correct medications because they didn't want to special order what I had been taking for years.
