Comment from: DJ, 55-64 on Treatment for 2-5 years (Patient) Published: February 20

I have been using Androgel transdermal for 3 years and have found it to be exceptionally effective. I began taking it because of loss of energy and attitude. Both energy and attitude has improved considerably and as a bonus a huge improvement in my libido. I have had no adverse side effects from the medication.

Comment from: Androgel, 45-54 Female on Treatment for 1-2 years (Patient) Published: July 16

This is a very dangerous drug.Currently being advertised on TV and other places as the answer to every mans problem. No side effects are mentioned and it has many! Was given to me WITHOUT blood tests. Appears men are the next hormonal science experiment as women were years ago. How many cancers and other health related issues must happen before the severity of the drug revealed. No side effects what so ever are mentioned on TV ads. Certainly hear about them with other drugs and this one has serious ones. PLEASE DON'T MAKE THIS SEEM LIKE THE MIRACLE DRUG. The gel is very dangerous if it comes in contact with women and children. Not to mention the unbelieveable price tag. It also speeds up your body's own system (guess that's the energy you suddenly get). Could this be good for men with any type of heart conditions or other health conditions? Besides what a great way to hook your body on a drug. You own body stops making it own hormone once you start this drug. How can this be good unless you have had proper testing. I got off the stuff for months, got a physical and blood test and my levels after not being on "T" were nearly 700 but the MD was more than willing to write that RX without the necessary tests! Guess it was guaranteed income if you had to keep coming back for a refill. Just trying to stress that this is a very serious drug and not to be taken for just that little boost of energy. What a joke. Lost hair, gave me a quick temper, ruined my sex life and always knew exactly when it was running low in my body. Friends and family noticed a big change in my personality. I got so I needed a fix! Legal addicting drugs. The manuafacturer wants you addicted so they demean you on TV as living in the shadows. Need more honesty regarding this drug before it hurts more individuals. Hope this helps others to not take a chance with something that has only been on the market a short time and given out freely for the asking.

Comment from: Chester1216, 55-64 Female on Treatment for 6 months - 1 year (Patient) Published: February 27

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.

Comment from: Sid (Chicago), 45-54 Female on Treatment for 1-6 months (Patient) Published: February 10

I was feeling tired and had no sex drive as well as ED. Wife complaining I wasn't meeting her needs. Talked with Dr and she gave Cialais but no good. Then she give this T-gel and I feel 70% better. My sex drive is back, ED problems going away and getting more intense erections again and staying longer, body hair returning, energy levels up and strength too, and my knee joints not hurting as much. Overheard wife telling her friend that her needs being met and somewhat better again. This T-gel is very easy to use and seeems almost as good as finding the fountain of youth. (Yes fellas, I have a female doctor and told her my of my ED problems and she was very understanding and helpful. she even phoned me to let me know how my blood T levels were low and got me this gel and is currently following my progress. Don't be affraid of female doctors not understanding males sexual problems. They know all too well and mine only wishes more men would seek help and get their problems checked sexual or not. I glad I let her know.)

Comment from: Mochismo, 45-54 Female on Treatment for 1-6 months (Patient) Published: October 01

I had a bad case of ED. Most of the time Viagra and the others would help then I found out my testosterone level was low at 223. After a month of treatment with Androgel I went from having no desire and "dead wood" to wanting it multiple times a day with spontaneous and very satisfying erections and performance. This treatment saved my marriage!
