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 m tn Androgel has coupons as well as patient assistance programs thru the manufacturer
Avatar n tn I was tested again about 4-6 wks later after taking 5 g 1/x day Androgel and they said it was in the normal range, they didn't give me the number. I am not scheduled to do another test at this time. In hindsight I really don't think I ever should have started androgel because of the sleep apnea. I think that lifestyle changes, mainly exercise, would have been the thing to do at the time and that is my plan now, esp once the back pain subsides. I think this will help the test.
Avatar m tn I have arthritus in my back and hips. I would like to know if the rise in hormone levels contributed to the increase in inflamation. I am scheduled for another MRI in a different location. Doctor believes that I may have a herniated disc. This of course would not be assiciated with the use of Androgel but I have stopped using it for seven days now. The less things my liver has to deal with right now the better.
Avatar n tn How much does a syringe of 1% androgel cost at the pharmacy? Does it vary from one pharmact to another?
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 n tn Hi, I have Hashimoto's and I've been taking levothyroxine or Synthroid 75mcg for several years. My most recent lab work showed my TSH at 2.64. 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.
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 I had a civilian doctor who started treating my condition, now I'm back in the Army and they don't seem to care or have a clue as how to treat me. I'm 46 yrs old and I have done two tours of Iraq, if that is any help to finding my problem. I don't know if anyone has noticed or seen a rise of this problem of soldiers in the Middle East. Started seeing my civilian doctor because my blood test revealed that my testosterone was too low.
Avatar m tn ve been on androgel 3x5g/day (2x5g/day in the winter) since it was made available. The nuts in this body don't make T at all. I've hated it from the get-go. I went from an easy-going, docile bookworm to a DGAF aggressive "warrior in a broken body". Psychiatrist put me on zoloft and just gave me an addictive mentality for needing more and more zoloft, until I was a delusional pseudo-psychopathic mess (hater of ppl when T was active, lover of ppl when it was dissipated).
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 f tn A problem is, testosterone varies a whole lot in both men and women, by the day, hour, week, etc. and even more in women than men, so the only true way to know if you had abnormally low levels would have been to test you a lot, not just twice. You did have the same levels twice, so it might be a problem. A question would be, how's your sexual desire? How's your stamina? How's your ability to build muscle? How's your energy levels?
Avatar m tn I have seen one patient develop macular edema in both eyes with testosterone patches. The edema resolved after stopping the testosterone. Dr. O.
694895 tn?1263662430 I have been diagnosed with Major Recurrent Depression that occurred anywhere from 2-7 years apart. My last episode began in the fall of 2006 and, in spite of numerous antidepressants, my symptoms perstied. I finally asked my Family physician to check my testosterone level. The result was 80...At my age, it should be close to 350. It is possible that low T is responsible for the severity and long duration of this episode. The Rx prescribed is Androgel...
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.
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 s been more than 2 yrs that we are living together and trying to have a baby, since my husband lab test shows that he got a low testosterone level, is there any chance of having get pregnant in a natural way rather than an in-vitro which the doctor tell us that, thats the only option we have?
Avatar f tn My wife thinks it that i dont fine her pretty, which she is very pretty. I try to tell her that the finest woman in the world could walk in my room naked and as of right now i would have no interest. And thats the truth.
Avatar f tn In the UK, do they check for dilation? Only really heard it done in USA, and I'm 37 haven't been checked so far!
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 m tn I suffer from almost the same thing. Penis curved to the left, tend to ejaculate quickly and have a weak erection. Add to that low sexual interest. I am a bit older though (46). Some of my symptoms could be associated with antidepressants I take. I am about to switch meds to see if that helps. Also I got my testosterone level checked and turns out I'm low. ABout to start Androgel 1% for that. We'll see how that goes.
