    Currently using. No effect after 3 months but no adverse effects either. Taking finasteride for prostate and reduction of DHT. Taking antidepressants. Supplementing with OTC DHEA, L-ariginine, zinc, and "Libido Max" which contains testosterone boosting herbal supplements.

    I am a 45 year old male and I have been taking AndroGel for about 5 days (4 pumps per day) and I feel awlful. I woke up this morning to a severe rash that itches like crazy, my lips and legs are swollen, I feel exhausted, I ache and I feel depressed. I am not taking any more of this and I am getting ready to go to my doctor. I hope someone else has better luck with this medicine.

    Have been on 2 or 3 pumps daily for 2 weeks. Prescribed for testosterone level low normal of 340 (nl. is 300-900) and loss of libido and ED. Libido improved significantly. ED is the same and so continue use of suction device to produce erection. Still difficulty obtaining orgasm. Plan to increase dose to 3 or 4 pumps daily.

    I might be the first wife to comment on this product. He is happy, lost weight, gained muscle etc. But sex drive is 0. When he has alittle desire, it doesn't stay for more than 3-5 minutes.
