Was prescribed this due to Low T. Total score of 240 and Free score of 6.3. Fatigue, concentration and memory were major issues. Urologist put me on Testim 1% which was 1 tube per day. It's been 3 weeks now and I have no improvements that I can feel or notice yet. To me the smell is no problem. When you first apply it on shoulders and upper arms, the alcohol smell being close to your f ... Show Full Comment

A true story: Several years ago my annual physical showed a drop in T count that led my doctor to prescribe a topical gel. First I tried a generic but it smelled like methanol, leading friends and family to wonder if I had been in high school chemistry class. My doc next prescribed Testim, which had a marvelous olfactory effect opposite to the generic brand. In fact I had to fight off women who ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I am 50 yrs old and have been taking Testim for about 3 weeks now and my major side effect is the slow shallow breathing at night, sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night gasping for air and since I live alone it can be scary so I'm not sure if I should continue. Just yesterday I saw a tv commercial by lawyers Morgan and Morgan about people who have sufferred heart attacks, strokes and ... Show Full Comment
