Androgel use

Common Questions and Answers about Androgel use


Avatar m tn 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 f tn I’m just finding out now that women SHOULD NOT be using AndroGel, and the amount I was using was pretty much overdosing. Is this true? Are there any women out there taking AndroGel? Was my dosage too high? Any info will be great! Thank you!
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.
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 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.
798579 tn?1237506930 using bed rest, stretching and use of a whirlpool/hottub. I am also under a prescription of Andogel 1.62%. 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!
Avatar m tn I now have a significant (at least to me) blind spot in that eye. It is bothersome, and hopefully I will get use to it. 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.
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 m tn Let me begin with the admission that I am a sex addict. This simply means that as I grew up, I found sex to be the "drug of choice" or the place I went to escape depression, sadness etc. So I've been in recovery for over 6 years and have done pretty well with that. Recovery literally saved my marriage. Today I am 55 years old, my wife is ten years younger, and we have two small kids.
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 know you want normal healthy erections on demand, but trust me, your marriage will only suffer if you let it. You've got fingers and a tongue haven;t you?? Use them!! And when your doc figures out what's up, you can get the problem sorted. In the mean time, a bit of the little blue helper pill can't hurt.
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 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 How much does a syringe of 1% androgel cost at the pharmacy? Does it vary from one pharmact to another?
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 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.
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.
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 n tn I am on Androgel for testesterone replacement therapy. The instructions say not to apply to my penis. I have done it sometimes and get an erection. Why should I not do this?
Avatar m tn I have these liver tests and am really worried my liver is damaged? AST 49(10-40) ALT 91 (10-45) could I have hepatitis? I don't drink and was on prednisone for 3 weeks at 30mg/day for week 1. I don't use drugs and never had a transfusion.

6185453 tn?1379472097 For all you guys out there who are coming off long term opiate use please go and get your testosterone levels checked.After 8yrs of methadone use I kicked that s--t and I thought the way I was feeling was due to that but it wasn't my free testosterone was 48 which is very low so I got on androgel and it helped me a lot but now that I'm back on oxy because of the injuries I recieved in combat I'm afraid that I'm going to end up in the same predicament.
