Aug 28, 2015 (Started Feb 24, 2015)

  • Effectiveness
    Can’t tell (for Low Testosterone)
  • side effects
    Mild (Skin tenderness)
  • Adherence
    Sometimes
  • Burden
    Somewhat hard to take
Dosage: 20.25 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Application is problematic because either the patient has to do self application or a second person has to put on gloves to prevent hormone exposure that causes male secondary sex characteristics regardless of the person's gender. This is also a problem if you have skin to skin contact with a second person and any moisture allows the gel to transfer to them. Libido has improved, but not fully returned.

  • Effectiveness
    Major (for Low Testosterone)
  • Effectiveness

    Moderate (Elevated hematocrit, Testicular atrophy, elevated hematocrit)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Somewhat hard to take
Dosage: 200 mg Every Other Week
Advice & Tips: The impact of taking testosterone is mostly very positive. I feel better overall and have a more positive mood. Better erections. Feel fitter and physically stronger. It has also helped with night sweats and insomnia that I experienced before. At too high a does there is also elevated estrogen which causes some 'man boob' symptoms. Unfortunately the benefits tend to taper off over time. I would really like to try using an estrogen blocker instead such as Clomid. But my GP doctor is unwilling to try prescribing that 'off-label.
Cost: $25-49 monthly
