FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments: ANDROGEL

User Comments:

For Hypogonadism, Male “I’ve been using Androgel (2 pumps per day) for about 3 weeks now. My energy level and sex drive is a lot better. In a better mood also. I haven’t had any side effects yet nor have I gotten any blood work done either. I am 46 with total testosterone level at the low 300 level. Dr. thought this would help. So far so good… I’m very lucky to have insurance coverage and my copay is $40 month”

For Hypogonadism, Male “My testosterone wad 153 and on the second test was 125. The doctor started me on two pumps a day and after 90 day it. Was 194. The only change was my atomic hot flashes had stopped. They were really bad and after the flash I would freeze in my soaked clothes.So now it has changed to bad night sweats. I do not feel the heat but wake up covered in sweat. I now use four pumps a day and it has been a week. I know I have to be patient, but if two pumps increased the reading by less than 70 I do not see that four pumps will bring me above 300.I have chronic pain and have to use a lot of opioids every day. This likely caused the problem and continues to fight the testosterone. My pain doctor told me I need to get on with my life as much as possible “

For Hypogonadism, Male “This never worked for me, not even a little. It might have been a placebo. Testin works GREAT!!!”

For Hypogonadism, Male “38 years old. I took Androgel 5mg /day for 7 months with no, or very few results. I went up to 7,5mg/day for a month with the same effect. The testosterone level is still very low. My doctor asked me to try Natesto for a month, we’ll see from there !”

For Hypogonadism, Male “I have been on the medicine just about 3 years now, and it has really turned my life around – I am 47. I use the minimum dose. T went from 150 -> 700 after just 6 months – maintains there regularly. One thing I do to help it work better is apply lotion 1 hour after using it every day. Turns out JAMA had an article that showed applying lotion or suntan lotion increased efficacy of absorption by 14-18%. I suggest this for those who are not getting desirable results. I get blood tested every 6 months – which is good, in my opinion.”
