    Comment:
    I have used the GEL for about 6 months, at the .5G dosage. Primarily due to experiencing consistent fatigue. T Level was initially at 183. Little improvement at that level, increased dosage today up to .75 G. My question to you all is, what was you original T Level, what dosage level gave you relief, and how long did it take to get relief? Thanks a lot.

    36 yr old male. T level below 300. I am only 36 but felt 66. I had no energy, depressed, no sex drive and horrible sweating episodes. Once we found out what was going on I was put on Androgel. I noticed it the 1st day. I was, and am still amazed with it. I feel like a new person. I have so much energy, great mood all of the time and my sex drive is back! This is an awesome product.
