androgel

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.
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 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 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 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 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 m tn I took it for several months as my blood work showed low testosterone. There was no effect whatsoever on my fatigue, sex life or oven follow up test values. 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.
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 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 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.
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.
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.
689860 tn?1238718032 I've been using Androgel for 3 years and have done well with it. My guess is that the doctor who ordered your hormone tests would also write the prescription. I got my test and prescription from my regular family doctor. Androgel is expensive ($120 a month here in Canada), but my private health plan covers it, which is great. The province where I live will only pay for the injections, not the gel. The gel will be generic within a few years, so the price will go down.
798579 tn?1237506930 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! Please help me, I don't want either of my children to be affected by this.
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.
978469 tn?1433547946 My total T was 180 and normal values are 240 to 800 according to my lab. So back in October I was started on 2.5 mg (2 pumps) of androgel. Level went up to 440 Total T. I pushed the doc to let me try 5g (4 pumps) so we can get into he high range. I have been on that now for 3.5 months Just got checked and my T was 785 and Ftrr T I believe 22.0 (very good). I fell GREAT! But about 2 weeks ago he checks my blood pressure and it was 145/90.
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..
Avatar f tn My husband is 36 and has very low testosterone (<150). He was on Androgel for about 9 months, and stoped taking it because he noticed no difference in how tired he was or his libido. He wants to go on injections, because we have heard from a lot of other people that those work the best due to immediate relief. We are aware that there will be a few days when he'll be feeling sluggish again due to the wear-off.
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 I have had a very bad athletes foot problem on my left foot between my small toe for over 4 months that wont go away don't matter what creams i have tried. Please help me. EzEl...
