Comment:
Husband considers androgel a wonder drug as it has increased his energy, accelerated healing of a bum shoulder and improved his athletic results. Wife hates it as it has brought out the 'inner jerk' in husband: he is more combative, more aggressive towards wife, quick to anger, less likely to compromise. The drug has visibly exacerbated tension in the marriage. If you are married, do no ... Show Full Comment

I used Androgel for many years until my insurance company upped the deductible to $250 for 3 months, and their generic Testim is $14/mo. Testim is so sticky and doesn't dry quickly like Androgel. I'm on the maximum dosage of each, and my T count dropped from 900 to 700 after switching over. I highly recommend Androgel - it works great!

Doctors should really tell their patients about all the side effects. My husband starting taking this and is verbally abusive and walked out on his family. He did gain muscle mass and libido but became depressed, paraniod, and directed all of anger towards me and the kids. He so happy with the way that he looks that he will never give the drug up unless it causes serious health issues.

I have been suffering for at least a decade with next to no sex drive and ED. At 51, my doc discovered that i have Low-T. Six weeks later, i am amazed at the results: I have stay hard, spontaneous wood, sex drive is momentous and i'm feeling like a MAN for the first time in so many years. I started with 2 pumps of androgel for the first month, had no results, and was advised to move up to 3. i ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Spoke with Androgel direct AB pharma. I'm angry the instructions DO NOT tell you only 50% of product is absorbed in 2 hours. YOU CANNOT SHOWER for 24 hours after application to achieve 100% absorption. You are paying 100% of price for 50% of effect! THis is a deceitful practice not informing the user.
