Androgel hair growth

Common Questions and Answers about Androgel hair growth


Avatar f tn I would NOT quit Androgel. 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 Obviously, anything that gives you side effects that bad is probably not the right treatment for you. Generally, women aren't given that treatment as it can cause acne, hair growth where women don't want it, and other male attributes. In your case, you had low testosterone and high SHBG, which might have been able to be treated by dietary changes. But people are different. A problem is, testosterone varies a whole lot in both men and women, by the day, hour, week, etc.
Avatar m tn t know if I should say this or not, but in addition to feeling Extremely fatigued/lethargic, depressed, mood swings/irritable, anxiety and experiencing extremely dry skin, muscle loss, poor sleep, diminished hair growth, having trouble remembering and concentrating on anything (even the most basic of tasks), and frequent testicles have shrunken to the size of medium-seized grapes in a matter of months.
Avatar m tn I displayed all the symptoms you listed above except I also had hair loss and I did not have two unprotected sexual episodes. I use a very expensive testosterone replacement therapy named Androgel 1.62 %. It has restored everything you listed including the hair loss. The greatest side effect (positive) is in my arms. Androgel is rubbed on the upper arms between the elbow and shoulder.
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 f tn Put him on Androgel. about 1 week later he started having the worst anxiety. (NEVER had anxiety before) He went back to Dr. and she also put him on Wellbutrin. This made the anxiety worse-switched him to Celexa. This gave him zero sex drive, so he switched to Prystyq to help with the anxiety.- which has not gotten any better during this time-it has gotten worse. In May- his Testosterone was checked it was up to the 350 level. (All the while he has stayed on the Androgel.
Avatar m tn I have been on several T supplements withouit success in relieving symptoms. Androgel resulted in my PSA going from 1.4 to over 5. 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.
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 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 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 f tn Depending on how far along you are in your pregnancy will you notice a difference. The prenatal vitamins they say help with hair growth, however I believe its more hormonal changes within you. When you notice your hair growing you will also notice your nails growing faster than usual. I have been taking prenatal vitamins for only 3-4 wks... I would say its more hormonal changes than the vitamins, for myself atleast.
Avatar f tn Maybe i need to cut my hair nd then see wat happens cause my hair has gotten shorter up top from me having a mohawk at one point nd it broke my hair off in the middle
Avatar f tn When did your hair start to grow? I'm very anxious to have my hair long again...
Avatar f tn If you take prenatal vitamins they are rich in folic acid and B vitamins which are great for your baby and have a side effect of increasing your hair growth rate as well as its thickness. Also they will increase the growth rate of your fingernails and skin cells. Many women who are not pregnant take prenatal vitamins to help with thinning hair, weak fingernails, or skin problems.
Avatar f tn Didn't think that your hair was supposed to grow faster I just thought that you didn't lose as Much hair due to it shedding

9263335 tn?1403463032 Is it true that your hair grows faster when pregnant? I'm 21 weeks+4days & I've been wanting to cut my hair because it's damaged & has split ends (awful I know) but my hair grows super slow. It took me over a year and a half to grow my hair out, it's down to my butt crack haha I love having it long but once I'm out of the shower my hair looks like a hair ball all tangled up. It takes me one hour to comb through it once it's dry.
Avatar f tn How many of yall ladies hair grew while being pregnant? My mother tells me my hair should start growing more now but nope I still have short hair :\ seems like the only places I'm growing hair is where I don't want to lol.

Avatar f tn kay i wanna grow my hair longer my normal hair is curly when its curly its short but when its straighten its longer but this is my question does anyone know how i can grow my hair long without strengthening it what kind of home remedy or hair products or something
Avatar f tn It's normal for these things to start happening following menopause due to testosterone. You can get help with this, however, by visiting a doctor and being prescribed certain hormones.
Avatar m tn I lost a probably about 45% but luckily it thinned all over. the only part I had to hide was a receding hair line in the front (Like my dad has) So I didn't put my hair up and just combed long hair over for a while. I have been done with treatment for a couple months now..and my hair, (while still thinned out) is a completely different texture then it was on treatment. I noticed within a few weeks after tx the shine was back and it did not look so dead anymore.
Avatar m tn Does Arimidex effect hair growth? I finished chemotherapy on August 24 and my hair has not quite grown in yet.
