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 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 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 n tn Hi, Use google and type is hgh in ms. I did asked my MS doctor about hgh and she said I can use it. I did ordered hgh and pay in my pocket but I used my credit card so insurance is not covering. I use HGH for 6 months from May to Oct 2014 and yes it is expensive but worth it. I have been exercise since I was 15 years old. I have MS in 1997 but in 2006, my knees are bad due of weak and knees caused my bottom body is weak due of controlling so I use walker.

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 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 n tn for men is a much better alternative to Androgel. The symptoms you are having are also Androgel side affects. Please consider a different treatment for the low T. Since your TSH is higher it's most likely your mood problems are more related to low T. Also google raising testosterone levels naturally in addition to hormone replacement therapy.
Avatar m tn Use of HGH under medical supervision for HGH deficiency is safe and will have few side effects. The risk of side effects increase when HGH is taken in higher doses without any medical supervision. The most common side effect of the excess use of HGH is acromegaly. This is a medical condition that begins with the overgrowth of facial bone and connective tissue, leading to a changed appearance due to protruding jaw and eyebrow bones.
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 So I was pretty excited about something that sounded like it could solve some problems. He prescribed AndroGel, a topical gel that is rubbed into the chest and upper arms, 5 mg per day. I did tell him about my past sexual behavior problems. Two weeks into it, I start getting really horny.
1139187 tn?1355706647 I'm not familiar with this particular one, but did a little research and from what I've read, it's main claim to fame is the HGH. HGH naturally declines as we age; my sister was given HGH as part of her leukemia treatment; it neither helped her skin, nor helped her lose weight. I've never been one to recommend products of this type. They're not approved by FDA and you have no idea what you're really getting.
Avatar m tn just thinking Would HGH or use of wteriods effect a HIV test. course ended 3/4 months b4 test??????????????
Avatar m tn No doctor will give you HGH just to stay youthful unless they'll dealing on the black market. Taking HGH regularly is probably harmful, and I wouldn't do it. but it's your call. The natural products may or may not work, but they certainly won't jack it up as much as injecting the real stuff. I used to sell homeopathic HGH, don't know anyone who got a whole lot out of it.
650419 tn?1281359937 m currently on Androgel but the side effect is that it keeps me up all night long like insomnia. I have been living this way for 4 months. I can't go to sleep until 4 or 5 am every morning. If I were to switch to the shots or the pellets would that rid me of the current side effects that I'm suffering from?
Avatar f tn I had a hysterectomy at 27 due to endometriosis and have been on HRT since then to keep menopausal sx controlled. Would I benefit from taking an HGH releaser such as Genf20 Plus? I'm thinking it's my pituitary gland that is messed up. If I elected to take an HGH such as Genf20 Plus as per the directed dosage for a limited amount of time say 6 months, what would be the likelihood, on the average, that I would experience negative side effects?
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.
694895 tn?1263662430 It is possible that low T is responsible for the severity and long duration of this episode. The Rx prescribed is Androgel...but at $250 an Rx I am unable to have it filled...I have no insurance and not enough money to start the treatment...anyone else have their Test level checked as part of a depression profile ? If so, what therapy were you prescribed.
Avatar f tn I posted one question re my ACTH results. Now I will see if anyone can help with HGH. I am a 48 yo female. My HGH has been 0.3. Two endocrinologists have told me this is "a little low".
