Avatar m tn This study shows that only third of depressed men who took the gel saw improvement. Maybe it just doesn't work for you? http://www.webmd.
Avatar f tn In May- his Testosterone was checked it was up to the 350 level. (All the while he has stayed on the Androgel. ) 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.
Avatar n tn I have been on Androgel for about one year. 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.
Avatar m tn I was on androgel for several years with good libido results before discontinuing due to prostate cancer. 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 For several months I have had a lot of mood problems really bordering on being depressed a lot. I also have been on Androgel 1.62% for low T, 2 pumps/day for several years. I'm trying to figure out if my mood issues could be related to my Thyroid and or the androgel. My TSH seems decent but in the past I've felt my best when my TSH was in the 1 - 2 range. I just don't want to start down a path of anti-depressants if I don't have to.
Avatar f tn Been using Androgel for three years, testicles have shrunk by 50%. 66 yrs old, good health, need to know if this can be reversed. I have stopped using Androgel.
689860 tn?1238718032 Normal range of T-levels for men are 300 to 1100, but the average is around 550. If you are also experiencing other symptoms such as: 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.
Avatar f tn Libido in both men and women is related closely to the level of testosterone in the blood (yes women have testosterone produced largely by the adrenal glands and men have so-called female hormones in their system). Testosterone level in the blood can be increased by a number of medications (androgel applied to the skin of the stomach, shots in the buttocks, etc.) all of which require a doctor's prescription.
Avatar n tn for now we are still waiting for our next doctors visit/ appointment for the interpretation for the last lab test of my husband, it was done after reporting the side effects of that androgel testosterone patch.. Happy to hear response from you again..
650419 tn?1281359937 m also experiencing insomnia, I think the reason why is because the Androgel is working and for the first time in many years I am no longer tired all the time. My well being is so much better and for the first time in many years I feel alive. I think what you are experiencing is the drug actually working. This is something you will have to get used to. I do my best to get rid of the excess energy by spending a lot of time at the gym.
Avatar m tn Temperature storage of Androgel.... Yikes, I have left the dispensor bottle of Androgel in the car for a period of 2-3 hrs under colder temperatures and on several occassions by accident. Does this affect the useful\effectiveness of the Testosterone substance ? ?
Avatar m tn Androgel is a testosterone cream for Males. It should be applied under the arms and never on the Penis as suggested. Please, please make certain no child or female ever touches the applied area before showering or washing it off. serious consequences can and do occur.
Avatar m tn I would talk to your doctor about this most definitely. I do think the therapy works for a lot of men but I would talk to your doctor about what you are experiencing. Plain old fatigue is something others have experienced on testosterone therapy. Not a ton but some. https://www.health.harvard.
Avatar m tn I am 49 year old male, six weeks ago I started using Androgel after over a year of testing. The second week after starting I have had muscle weekness. I also must have had arthritis in my neck, back and hips that has become inflamed. I am having several other back pains that we are having a hard time tracking down. Is there any information out there that might address this. My endo believes that the product should help, but the time frame fits.
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 What should an appointment with an endocrinoligist for low testosterone include.?
Avatar n tn Hello Sir, It is important to ascertain exactly who gave you this dosage and how they prescribed it for you.
Avatar f tn I know, without a doubt, the treatment messed with my female hormones for nearly a year after treatment, so I'm sure men are no different. My husband had some pretty severe depression, anger, and mood swings (I wanted to lock him in the shop!) when his testosterone was low -caused by thyroid weirdness...(He is 45 yrs old). -and we had an awful time convincing the Dr his problem was hormonal...
Avatar m tn My current test show that my testosterone level is 305, I take 7.5g of Androgel daily. My TSH level is 2.71, normal but sometimes it comes back on the low end. FT4 level is 0.61, it's always on the low end. Though I take the Androgel, I'm still always tired. This is tough because I'm a soldier. The Army feels that since my testosterone stays around normal with the Androgel. That all must be ok. Need help or directions to some help.
Avatar m tn low T 1 1/2 yrs ago, borderline several months later and then borderline again recently. He put me on 5gm. Androgel which I have been on for 1 week and 2 days now. I have not noticed any improvement as of yet, though my urologist mentioned that it could take 3 weeks before I saw any benefit and would probably want to continue the use of Levitra until that time. Is this true, normal or am I not going to see a benefit from this medication?
Avatar m tn How old is your husband, and when was he diagnosed with "low T"? How "low" was his T? People have to be VERY cautious. While low testosterone certainly CAN be an issue for some men, it's basically being used as a huge marketing ploy to push these newer meds, like the androgel.
694895 tn?1263662430 if you go on the androgel web site you can get a discount card for their gel to use at the pharmacist. there are also other places to get the cream. we go to a place that makes it on site. and with the cream it is made much stronger to the persons needs and you actually put on ALOT less than the gel. The place we go to is called Custom Dosing, don't know if you have one in your area.
