    Worst TRT I've tried so far. Axiron is the consistency of water and then you apply it to the vertical surface of your underarm. Who thought this was a good idea? It often bounces out of the applicator cup and then when you go to apply it, it splashes and runs down the side of your torso.

    I was on Testim and never got above 260 so I tried Axiron. My levels initially spiked to 550 but was just retested and am down to 166. I'm going to try injections or pellets now.

    I've been on this for a couple months now, my numbers increased from 200 to 530 on the lowest dose. As far as any improvement in energy and brain fog... none. After the first week my sex drive improved and I was less moody than usual, but after a couple weeks everything went back to usual. The co-pay is only $25 if you go to Axiron.com and click on the banner that says 30 day free trial and ge ... Show Full Comment

    Comment:
    Testosterone beginning level was 235, then six months later 325, six months after that 424 and just last week it was 883. Wow! My doctor and I were shocked. That's 30 mg per day. Im also taking 30mg of Armour thyroid medicine per day. I can't figure out why the big jump within this last 6 months. Anyone have any ideas? Going back to the doctor next week to be retested.
