Just got the implants yesterday so no real difference in how I feel yet. The injection site is a little sore but nothing much.

Earlier this year I was diagnosed with Male hypogonadism (low T). My level was 240, so I started with Testim 1% for about three months. My T levels went up to 460 on my second month, and then my levels went down to 290 on my third month. It possibly was because my skin wasn’t absorbing it. So, my Dr switch me to Testopel.

Comment:
I really liked the drug, unfortunately the corporation who makes it only sells it through Walgreens Specialty Pharm. I won't do business with them after a really bad experience with them. My insurance will cover the $2k for the meds + the procedure, but if I can't get the med, then I can't take it. I will go back to Androderm. I can get it through my neighborhood pharmacy and (although ... Show Full Comment
