Testosterone propionate/testosterone phenylpropionate/testosterone isocaproate/testosterone decanoate (TP/TPP/TiC/TD), sold under the brand name Sustanon 250 (Organon) among others, is an injectable combination medication of four testosterone esters, all of which are androgens/anabolic steroids. They include:

They are provided as an oil solution and are administered by intramuscular injection. The different testosterone esters provide for different elimination half-lives in the body. Esterification of testosterone provides for a sustained but non-linear release of testosterone hormone from the injection depot into the circulation.

Sustanon is the preferred method of testosterone replacement in the United Kingdom as detailed in the British National Formulary.[citation needed] There was a brief shortage of Sustanon 250 during late 2011, due to licensing problems,[1] and a further shortage in mid-2012 due to manufacturing problems.[medical citation needed]

This form of testosterone is a popular choice of anabolic steroid among bodybuilders and athletes.[medical citation needed]
