Androgel application

Common Questions and Answers about Androgel application


Avatar m tn My buddies and I happen to have been prescribed Androgel (he uses Testim due to insurance isses). We happened to be talking about application procedures and he told me that he doesn't wash the application site every day and reapplies the gel the next day to the same spot. I tried the same thing, even for a third day, and I see the following: better success at the gym, happier, bigger libido, etc. Some say to wash site but he is having luck doing it this way and so am I. More energy too....
Avatar n tn We still spend almost every day together, but no sex or sexual contact. His doctor prescribed androgel for him to use. The goal was to increase his libido as well as protect him from other side effects of low testosterone. He has been using it for a little over two weeks now. The only thing he feels has changed is that over all he feels much healthier. Is the begginning sign of a bigger change? How long does androgel usually take to show an increase in libido?
Avatar n tn After, I sufferred from low testosterone levels and was treated with androgel in skin application form. I recently learned that my cancer has recured. I noted that my testosterone levels soared. I ceased using the gel packs. Now, I have hot flashes frequently, daily, feel very fatigued and am worried about losing muscle mass, bone density and depression. My doctor said withdrawl is the reason for the problems and will pass in a month or so.
Avatar m tn Can Androgel jumpstart natural testosterone production, or is there a rebound affect from suddenly stopping Androgel application? Have I been miraculously cured of "low T"? Or is the reading likely erroneous?
Avatar m tn I have been diagnosed with Kallmann Syndrome, eight mounths ago, and since then i use androgel, one gel per day. I have 27 years old. I want to ask if i do the hormonal treatment, can i feel the sexual pleasure, libido, because until now i did not felt something. I musturbate and i do not feel something, like my brain were paralyzed. Thank you.
Avatar n tn Topical testosterone (available only by prescription) such as androgel are applied to the stomach to increase the level of testosterone in the blood. Application directly to sexual organs would have no effect on them other than, possibly, irritating the sensitive areas as the gel is in an alcohol base. It will NOT enlarge your organ.
Avatar n tn I personally use a testosterone replacement medication (androgel). It is a gel that you rub into the skin daily on the upper arms, shoulders, or abdomen. I will give you a few quotes from the info that is included with my subscription. Precautions: Transfer of testosterone to another person can occur when vigorous skin-to-skin contact is made with the application site.
1139187 tn?1355710247 Can anyone tell me if they have had luck with androgel pumps? My free level is in range but my t level is 255 range 250 to 1200. I am hypothyroid and the last time I tried the pump and the patch it made me feel worse. Also, if the required dosing is 4 pumps, is it ok to just start with 2?
Avatar f tn You say he was diagnosed with low testosterone. Did the doctor put him on androgel or another medicine. I take androgel, which is just a packet of gel that I simply rub on my upper arms/shoulders every morning. FYI, you will not want to come in contact with his application area for at least 3 or 4 hours because there are side effects for you. You didn't say how old your husband is. Has he had a normal sex life in the past? Just wondering.
Avatar m tn Today options for treatment include topical testosterone gels and creams, short and long acting injections of testosterone esters, application of testosterone through skin patches, subcutaneous testosterone implants, and oral testosterone capsules. The injection is given deep intra-muscular and is quite often painful.
Avatar n tn also note that a research team led by Dr Eric Topol chairman of cardiology at the Cleveland Clinic has discovered the first gene linked definitively to heart disease...the results are nuanced in their interpretation and application..see the current issue of Science...
Avatar m tn 5 million people in Japan suffer from the diseases, and clinical application of the team's findings is being eyed for sometime in the next few years.
Avatar n tn Then i had learned of a few members applying androgel to their penis after manual workouts. The extra androgens provided better healing/growth, so i descided i wanted to be a part of it. I went online & bought some topical testosterone cream. The cream that i bought was 15% testosterone base.(unknownst to me that it was too high. Androjel is only 1%) well after about 3 applications to my penis, my hormones went comletely out of wack & my penis started to shrink.
1216523 tn?1285113808 I saw an application for a gun licence on his bureau. ?????????????????? It's still on his bureau. I have a good mind to call the Chief of Police and tell him not to approve any applications he may recieve for all the above reasons. I feel it is a betrayal but, man, he is out of control right now. Thanks. I needed a kick. Will think about what to do tonight and make a plan that I can stick to. I CAN get my kids out of here - that is easy.
Avatar m tn I attribute this primarily to the testosterone therapy which has also helped my mood a bit. I have been taking androgel for about 3 weeks. I suspect that a lot of the sides I was having were as a result of the damage my endocrine system took during tx. I developed hypoglycemia as well as the low testosterone during tx. Basically speaking I am still feeling like I am in the detox mode.
Avatar n tn I honestly have no idea what is causing the imbalances and it's bothering me a lot. Any ideas? I'm thinking about stopping the TRT. I am on the 5mg androgel gel. It helps my mood, but I don't want to further complicate my condition if the androgel isn't even fixing the problem. Is that a bad idea? I take a daily vitamin (Men's One a Day, Vit. E 45 IU, Zinc 15mg). Is that enough for my zinc and vitamin E? Should I start taking HCG? Will that fix the problem?
Avatar m tn 7)did not notice testis pulling tight or feeling less full or soft till i started androgel thay did hang down most of the time if i was cold thaty pull up.since i've quit using the androgel thay seem to hang down .i feel like if i was kicked in the balls it would not hurt like it would have before and i did have pain i n my left testisicl for about 3 years .but after starting the androgel and a cleanse for yeast the pain has gone.
Avatar f tn while I was ON Treatment and have spent the last year not being able to even complete the SSD application as It is just too overwhelming. Although I am WORKING on it. While in tx I was prescribed high doses of oxycodone...15mg 46x/day in addition to 20 mg oxycontin sr 2x/day. At completion of interferon tx I chose to stop the pain meds as I was told I'd feel better within 3months and didnt want to be physically Dependant, which anyone taking those doses for over a yr inevitably becomes.
Avatar n tn BTW, has anyone here tried unrefined palm oil (for topical application)? I've only neen using it for a few days now, but it really is a very good moisturiser. Here's one thing, however, that I *know* for a fact helps preserving a young(ish) appearance: refusal to accept ANY symptom of whatever is causing these nasty manifestations of "cronehood" as definitive, irreversible. That is BS! And I am speaking from actual experience, not (just) out of some philosophy.
