  • 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.
