Common Questions and Answers about Androgel and working out


Avatar m tn 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.
650419 tn?1281359937 And what i would tell you is to, for at least 10 months is continue to work hard and eat right and THROW THAT DAMN SCALE OUT! If your working hard and eating right, then ill guarantee that you will get in shape , but the most important tip i give all my clients is the only way to be successful is to not quit going. Most of us want it to happen faster, your not any different, but it just takes time. So please dont give up. And make sure the diet your own is right for you.
Avatar n tn Thanks. Unfortunately I only have the TSH to go on this time. The labs were ordered such that the T3/T4 levels were only checked if the TSH was out of range. I worked with an Endo previously but I moved out of the area and then moved back. I've been working with my primary internal med doc since I didn't seem to have any acute Thyroid issues at the time. I did discuss some hypo symptoms with him at my last physical. Up/Down energy level, intolerance to cold (mostly at night).
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 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 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 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.
Avatar m tn Because of re-establishing trust issues with my wife, my achieving 3 years of solid abstention from sexual acting out, and having kids, our sex life was nowhere. I had trouble reaching erections, and had symptoms of Peyronie's disease, and I chalked it all up to the adage "use it or lose it." But I decided to go to the Urologist to check out the equipment status. I went to the urologist who through blood tests said my T level was 227. So he gave me a script for 5mg gel.
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 m tn The Androgel is out of my system, so is the pain. Interesting.
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 n tn I was tested again about 4-6 wks later after taking 5 g 1/x day Androgel and they said it was in the normal range, they didn't give me the number. I am not scheduled to do another test at this time. In hindsight I really don't think I ever should have started androgel because of the sleep apnea. I think that lifestyle changes, mainly exercise, would have been the thing to do at the time and that is my plan now, esp once the back pain subsides. I think this will help the test.
Avatar m tn I had a civilian doctor who started treating my condition, now I'm back in the Army and they don't seem to care or have a clue as how to treat me. I'm 46 yrs old and I have done two tours of Iraq, if that is any help to finding my problem. I don't know if anyone has noticed or seen a rise of this problem of soldiers in the Middle East. Started seeing my civilian doctor because my blood test revealed that my testosterone was too low.
Avatar n tn How much does a syringe of 1% androgel cost at the pharmacy? Does it vary from one pharmact to another?
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.
Avatar m tn I personally think the whole testosterone treatment is a scam. Nobody tested me for free and albumin bound testosterone, the biologically active forms. Total testosterone is useless. This is like measuring total cholesterol without the HDL and LDL fractions. The primary practice docs are totally clueless. I would recommend talking to a good endocrinologist only.
689860 tn?1238718032 I know you want normal healthy erections on demand, but trust me, your marriage will only suffer if you let it. You've got fingers and a tongue haven;t you?? Use them!! And when your doc figures out what's up, you can get the problem sorted. In the mean time, a bit of the little blue helper pill can't hurt.
Avatar m tn I did this because I now live in Greece, and the doc out said I had anxiety and just gave me Viagra, not good as it make you like a machine, and all the above should get you back like to some kind of normality, so far this week its been 6 out of 7, not a bad average..
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 n tn Hi, Thank you for the information that may help me to understand about having a low testosterone level. Yes, my husband went through lab tests, examine, and they found out that ..his testis where small due to bad illness when he was a child, bacteria or virus caused it, so his testis become small, that's their explanation to us. But he can still perform coitus, still get hard and his urge still there as normal .
Avatar m tn I bought a box of testosterone androgel. I finally found out that I don't really have to use it. I am wondering if it is ok to sell it. I never opened the box. Thank you in advance.
Avatar n tn look up testosterone levels by age group, print out image flowcharts, make a paper plane out of it, and toss it at your knuckleheaded doctor and ask him/her why they are screwing up your life by being so damn ignorant.
Avatar m tn I am a 30 year old male and a healthcare worker who does not have health insurance. Money is really tight right now. I made an appointment with a Urologist a couple weeks ago because I have been having issues with maintaining an erection and one of the things that the doctor did was take some blood to check my testosterone levels. I am involved in a committed relationship and it has taken a tole on both of us for months. Back in 2007 I took testosterone (Steroids) for about 6-8 weeks.
Avatar n tn I was recently working out, and as soon as I started to lift, my very first set, i got a massive headache and could not do anything else. It happened to me once before, but it was a different type of headache it was in the back of my head and my neck so i didn't work out for a week or two and i was fine. Since then i have been going to the gym for about two months and it hasn't happened. Like i said, this is a different headache. I just started taking creatine if that means anything?
