Common Questions and Answers about Androgel and fatigue


Avatar m tn t notice as long as i keep exercising ---if your doses of androgel are high you may notice a bit of fatigue and and in the sexual dept but nothing severe .
Avatar m tn The Androgel bottle says it's supposed to be kept at 77 degree's. The room I keep my Androgel in a roo thats about50 degree's . Could this be affecting the Androgel? It doesny seem to be working for me. Started on 4 pumps and worked at first then it didnt. Now on 6 pumps and I felt a difference but now that has declined. Jusy wondering if the room temp could be harming this drug and maybe why it doesnt seem to be working for me. Thanks in advance, Sutallee.
Avatar n tn My testosterone tested low after i complaining of fatigue with my primary dr and he prescribed this. i felt much better for a few weeks but then i began to feel terrible. It appears to have exacerbated my sleep apnea terribly, and moods are up and down. I have been slowly trying to wean from it but I wonder if i will ever get back to producing T normally. Weaning seems to be really tough, i've been very tired, a lot of back pain, and other symptoms.
Avatar m tn t want to give me TRT to bring my test level up ever when i was told they were low. Had fatigue, mood swing and got into trouble because my mood was up and down. Almost got discharged until I stop listening to them, retired and treated myself. Don't wait on doctors, do your research and treat yourself. You know you better than a doctor!
Avatar m tn I was advised to stop the Androgel after which my PSA returned to 1.4. I am on testosterone injections currently and my fatigue is worse. I just finished a blood draw yesterday and the results are not available yet. My last results showed a TSH of 0.6, T3 of 2.3, and T4 of 1.1. I am currently on 88mcg of Synthroid and 10 mcg of Cytomel. My symptoms of fatigue, hair loss, weight gain (more fat than weight), tinnitus, and muscle cramps are still with me.
Avatar m tn I was referred to a psychiatrist, who suggested an anti-depressant, and then discharged me when he found out I was already on one. The fatigue and the anxiety definately feed into each other, and probably lower my mood because I find it hard to enjoy myself because I am so tired all the time. Typically, the more anxiuos I feel when I wake up, the more tired I feeel throughout the day.
Avatar f tn I started using Androgel because of depression, hair loss, shaving every 3 days (which is good!), atrophying of all muscles and my bone density dropped. I started Androgel 1.62% and everything improved greatly Good luck and do this only with doctors approval.
Avatar m tn My question is, shortly after I began Testosterone Replacement Therapy and am using Androgel daily. Is this an issue that I should be concerned with in regards to the CSCR? Or is it really corticosteriods that are a problem? This a concern to me since I have noticed a significant improvment in my overall general well being since using Androgel.
689860 tn?1238718032 fatigue, low libido, depressed mood and if your fat/muscle percentage is suboptimal, you are most likely hypogonadal. While the previous poster did mention hormone replacement, he left out the option of a topical, transdermal gel that can be applied to your skin daily. This ia a much less painful method than injections and will deliver more consistent levels provided you stay on therapy. The most used version of this is AndroGel.
694895 tn?1263662430 The only thing I can recommend is contacting the company that makes the Androgel and ask if they can give it to you at a reduced rate since you have no insurance. Your Dr may have to fill out a little bit of paper work for the company. Take care.
Avatar m tn Thanks very much for your help! I have these liver tests and am really worried my liver is damaged? AST 49(10-40) ALT 91 (10-45) could I have hepatitis? I don't drink and was on prednisone for 3 weeks at 30mg/day for week 1. I don't use drugs and never had a transfusion.
Avatar f tn ) He has even gone to a therapist for counseling for anxiety. I recently googled Androgel and anxiety and did come across quite a few people who have had cases of anxiety with Androgel. Could this be the cause? We think possibly. We recently stopped the pristyq (about 2 weeks ago) and just went to the endocronologist today. First time seeing a specialist. She had him stop the Androgel, although she has not heard of it causing anxiety. She is having him do blood work in 2 weeks.
Avatar m tn I starter with Androgel 1 month ago, and now my levels went down 75 points doctor prescribed two pumps , I am now even more tired and weak than when I started; in my first three weeks, I felt great. now. I just get worse day by day seems like. appreciate any replies.
Avatar m tn fatigue, depression, anxiety, and lack of motivation. They have been life-altering. The worst though, is the constant fatigue I have experienced which has turned me into a “zombie-like” person. I tried to combat it through lifestyle choices, but it seemed futile. After twisting his arm for more than one year, my family physician tested my testosterone which sent me on a journey the past six months or so.
Avatar m tn The greatest side effect (positive) is in my arms. Androgel is rubbed on the upper arms between the elbow and shoulder. The biceps and triceps are almost doubled their original size in one year and I don't work with weights. Good luck and I hope this helps.
Avatar m tn After brachytherapy for my cancer, I am in remission, and after 2+ years resumed taking androgel. I am on androgel again, and have high Testosterone levels (about 1000), but my libido has never recovered. I also have had hypothyroidism, but have been taking synthroid for it for many years with no adverse impact on my libido. Does anyone have a suggestion for what to do?
Avatar n tn How much does a syringe of 1% androgel cost at the pharmacy? Does it vary from one pharmact to another?
Avatar m tn ve been using the product for about three weeks now and my lower back and neck are very painful. Similar to you. Would like further information also by other users.
1139187 tn?1355706647 Hello, Androgel contains testosterone gel can be used for testosterone replacement but should be sued with caution because it has plenty of side effects. It may cause skin irritation, blisters on skin, problems with urination, nausea, stomach pain, low fever, loss of appetite, dark urine, clay-colored stools, jaundice and swelling of ankles. Hence use it only under a medical supervision. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
277836 tn?1359666174 He told me my levels on Testorone was really low and he likes to see it 500 or better. He also told me some of my symptoms are probably due to this.. Like the off feeling tiredness etc. He also said maybe even my vision issues. He is running some standard test I guess on my Pit gland Thyroid and some other things.. I will not know those results for a week.. Anyway he prescribed me Androgel 1% 4 pumps a day.. Today 4/19/13 is my second dose. I havent noticed anything yet.
Avatar n tn 62% Androgel is not likely a full daily replacement amount for you. Using the Androgel will cause your natural T to diminish. Since total T is the sum of exogenous and endogenous sources, you may not be getting the effect you expect.
Avatar m tn She started me on a medication called Androgel at 2.5 grams per day! This made my levels drop further and and currently has me on 10-15 grams per day which has brought me up to 800 range! My energy levels, self esteem and well being is almost euphoric and I feel like and 18 year old again! Before any of these treatments I always had strong erections and strong ejaculations, however after using this medication I can not get and erection and my sex drive is completely non existent?
900171 tn?1356952540 I supposedly had EBV in October, and am still suffering from fatigue and fogginess. I can go to bed early and still feel tired the next day. I have had so many tests run and the only indicators are possible EBV infection and low testosterone. I have been on testosterone replacement (androgel) the last two months which doesn't seem to help.
798579 tn?1237506930 using bed rest, stretching and use of a whirlpool/hottub. I am also under a prescription of Andogel 1.62%. My question is...I put my Androgel onat night before I go to bed. Right no, I have to get up every 6 hours to stretch and get in the whirlpool. My children get in this whirlpool aft I do? Will the Andogel be washed off of me after the 6 ours and will it affect my children? Ive read allthe side effects that can happen if they even touch the stuff!
Avatar m tn When I got low on Fortesta and ran out while bantering with the insurance company, I started losing muscle mass, constant fatigue, depression and absolutely no sex drive. I am now using Androgel and everything is back right! Don't worry, you look okay with those numbers.
