Baby overdoses on Test Enanth

Dont want any of you trying this at home!

Baby given overdose of testosterone
30 June 2005
By NIKKI MACDONALD

A baby given 10 times the prescribed dose of testosterone began to grow pubic hair and was left vulnerable to a painful side effect.


The nurse who accidentally gave the overdose, which left the baby irritable, angry and often inconsolable, breached the code of patient rights, the Health and Disability Commissioner has found.

The infant, identified as Baby A, had a rare congenital condition that resulted in a very small penis. To avoid later teasing, the baby was prescribed a course of three 25-milligram injections of testosterone enanthate one month apart, to enlarge its penis to normal size.

A nurse gave the first injection without any problem, but when Baby A's mother returned for the second dose, a different nurse - unfamiliar with the drug - failed to check the original prescription and injected 10 times the prescribed amount by mistake. On re-reading the pharmacy instructions, the nurse - known as Ms B - realised to her horror that she had overdosed the baby.

"I phoned (Baby A's mother) several days later to sincerely apologise for the mistake I made," Ms B told the commissioner. "Being a mother myself, I could only imagine what she was feeling, but I was and am so deeply sorry for my actions."

Baby A's paediatrician warned possible side effects of the overdose included painful erection, which could be difficult to manage and need ice packs. However, he did not believe the overdose would cause great harm and advised Baby A's doctor not to try to remove any of the injected drug.

After the injection, Baby A was irritable, quite angry and often inconsolable, the paediatrician said. Though expected, the side effects may have been exacerbated by the large dose. The baby did not suffer any painful erections.

AdvertisementAdvertisementThe commissioner's nursing expert, Rosemary Minto, found Ms B should not have given the injection, as she had no paediatric experience and it was outside her scope of practice. She should have sought advice from the baby's doctor.

Commissioner Ron Paterson found Ms B had breached the code of patients' rights but decided not to take the matter further, as she had apologised, undertaken further training and written vaccination guidelines for other nurses.

    Still...Kind of makes you fear to put the life of anyone you care about in the hands of incompetant "professionals" such as these. Im sure this could have been a lot worse if she had overdosed on a different drug. Not funny, and really a good bit disturbing.

    Quite shocking stuff.

    If no permanent damage has been done and the little ones ok, then all i can say is that an amp of legot TV250 is a beautiful thing indeed

    Does show that Androgens/Steroids dont carry the overdose risk of most drugs.

    Id guess that 10 times the dose of many drugs for an infant via injection would have far worse consequences

    Cheers, Rich

    How does test enlarge penis's?



    Its a side effect in adolescent boys. In girls it can enlarge the clitorus, which would of developed into a penis had the genetics split differently.

    Nah, sounds wrong to me this. What does it matter to a baby, if sexual development makes his penis grow then it will grow in puberty like everyone else.

    Pretty disgusted people find mistakes with babies funny anyway.

    Well yes PB was correct.

    It was funny because the baby is fine, and may well end up with a big dick as a result.

    So your starting the sexual development of a baby off? Won't that mess up puberty and other development.
    Isn't this the reason steroids are not good for teenagers?

    I just don't personally find it funny, anything involving kids suffering I just don't find funny even if they are OK afterwards.
    There was a pedo joke posted the other day many people laughed at (was locked). I got what was supposed to be funny, I just personally find it sickening (yes I understand I am in the minority).

    I also wonder if it may have effected his normal growth pattern?

    AFAIK estrogen makes the growth plates fuse shut, as people with aromatase mutations or estrogen receptor mutations keep growing for years as their growth plates never close.

    Although I'm not sure on exactly how this happens, perhaps it is a cumulative effect or only occurs at a certain level of E present. Either way if babies do not produce aromatase yet then it'd be alright?

    If it's true that he will just have a large schlong then it's alright I suppose, although if it grows to 15 inches or something ridiculous like that then maybe not so good lol.
