Testim (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: I am 54 yrs old. I have been using Testim for over 6 weeks now because my Dr. prescribed it to me. The results that I've gotten are phenomenal. My Testoserone went up 3Xs as much and my Free Test went up 2xs as much. I feel more confident; a little more aggressive; more sure of myself; more alert; a little sharper; overall I feel GREAT! And sexually I don't tire as quick as before. I rub one tube on my shoulder and upper arm in the mornings, about the same time. I switch arms everyday. The smell is pleasant. I did have a side effect i.e. my foot/ankle swelled up, so I laid off it for about 2 weeks, till the swelling went down. Now I have no more side effects, this works GREAT!

Testim (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: I am a 59 year old male, HIV and have used Androgel successfully for years to help with energy, depression and libido. My insurance company forced me to switch to Testim in January, and I really dislike this. Its hard to wash off my hands after application to my chest and shoulders; it has a distinctive odor that clashes with colognes and causes Allergic reactions in scent sensitive friends; it only dries to a sticky tacky surface that sticks to my shirts, stains my clothes, and the tubes it comes in are harder to use than Androgel packets or the pump.

Axiron (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: I have been on the gel for 5 months and all I can say is wow! My doctor put me on a strict diet and told me to try this. I was hesitant at first but after about a week of use I started to see some serious changes. Sex drive, energy, alertness, and overall performance. I had gained quite a bit of weight, to be exact I was 418 lbs! With diet, exercise, and increasing my test levels I have lost 68 lbs and still dropping. My side effects were a little different from others. My ejaculation increased and my size increased as well. Also I shave my arm pits now to ensure that all the medication is being absorb, and I apply the medication at night after I shower. I also wait about 25 mins before getting dress.

Axiron (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: Same symptoms as most other reviewers. Been on Axiron for about a month now. Feeling significantly better. Mood, energy, and sex drive are way up. Noticed slight sinus burning/headaches, but I'm not sure they are associated with Axiron. Underarm redness and burning have been pretty significant, but bearable. Dont know levels yet. Another test to come.

Axiron (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: I have been using Axion for a little over a month. I am 65 years old. About 2 weeks after I started the use of Axiron my energy level was unbelieveable. I feel better than I have felt In several years. I have just started my second bottle of it and will give another opinion when I complete this bottle. So far I am very happy with this product.

Androderm (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: I am an older guy (over 65). Last evening was my first experience with Androderm 2 mg patch. I was not expecting much in the way of results. About an hour and half after dosing my penis became fully erect and hard without any physical stimulis. This has not happened in years. This morning I woke with morning wood. More like a willow than a oak but I will take that. The patch did not come off in the pool doing water exercises for over an hour. Total Testosterone 381 Free Testosterone 55 So far I have been very happy with product

Axiron (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: Hi, I'm a 35-year old male with Hypogonadism (primary testicular failure not producing any sperm and smaller testies). My T level was 200 nmol/L which is below the lower limit of the normal range. This is day 2 on being on Axiron (60 mg / day dose) and I already feel different: my mental cloudiness is gone, I have more energy and I don't need to drink that much coffee to stay awake. Got a strong 'morning wood' like I haven't had in years. Erections, orgasms also quite improved already! I feel that my body is finally performing at the level it should be. Yeah! The only downside is I observed myself snapping momentarily with anger for small things.. I'll keep posting about my experience. I can't believe how different I feel in just 2 days!

Striant (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: Used Striant for several years. It's a buccal (placed under top lip on gum) and I was advised by pharmacist that buccal method is the quickest delivery of medicine (also bypasses liver). My T numbers were the best ever on Striant (from <200 to 700 ). My biggest problem was you have to use it 2x per day and I could only handle 1x/day in morning, otherwise, it kept me awake/anxious at night! I would have to say though, if you're strictly looking to raise numbers it's probably the best t replacement (other than shots) and had Axiron not came along, I'd still be using Striant.

Axiron (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: Have fought low Testosterone levels for 10 years (starting in my mid-30's). T-level range untreated=<200. Initially, used Testim but it was much too sticky with transfer concerns and because my body did not absorb it well my levels would never get above low-normal. Was on Striant for several years and it works pretty well but dosing is 2x per day so I could not handle using in evening (kept me awake, anxious, etc). Two months ago, I was prescribed Axiron and it's the best testosterone replacement! Applying under the arm eliminates most or any transfer concern and because it's alcohol based, it dries quickly. I did switch to spray deodorant because roll-ons became sticky. Most important, I feel great all day and evening and my levels are 500's which seem to be my best.

Review by ccgo:

Axiron (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: My husband's testosterone levels have been crashing. He is on opioid for a spinal fusion that did not take. His total testosterone level 3 days ago was 35 when it should be between 550-700! No that is not a typing error. You can imagine how he was feeling. He has just started the Axiron so it is to early to tell. I wanted to let everyone know that on Axiron's website, there is a phone number your doctor can call and the company will send a copay card that will make your cost, even with insurance, $25.00 per month. The card will pay up to $75 per monthly prescription. The card is good for 11 months. Hope this helps! It is definitely some pricey stuff!

Testim (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: Have been using Tesopel implants for the last year but they are now not available. Asked the Uro for a temporary solution and he put me on Testim. My wife is very sensitive to smells and notices it but doesn't hate it. Seems to be working for me but not as effective as the implant. Works better when you squeeze out the WHOLE tube into your palm and then apply.

Axiron (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: I'm 59, good shape, pretty well preserved. Prostate removed due to cancer. Levels were around 150. Started Axiron and energy level, libido improved. Levels now around 650. Happy with results but having redness under arms and a few small skin tags. I started putting on my calves until I can get my Dr to return my calls

Axiron (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: I was on Androgel when I read about Axiron. While Androgel was OK, it didn't seem to do much for my libido. It did help with weight loss but other effects were mild. I asked my doctor to switch my prescription, which he did. Wow, this stuff really upped my libido significantly. I am 69 and feeling more like 45. Other than the mild burning after applying it (like some deodorants) I have not experienced any negative side effects. Application, once you realize you don't push the pump like you do with Androgel (sends it flying), but press slowly and apply slowly it is actually faster and easier to do with less mess. I would highly recommend trying this if you are having problems with diminished libido.

Axiron (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: I got a free 30 day supply to try and outside of getting used to filling the delivery system I found it was not difficult at all to use. When I started using it the force from the pump was so great it made about 1/4 of the liquid fly out and land on the counter. I learn to slowly fill the cup with the container on it's side worked without losing any product. Otherwise only slight swelling of my ankles and my nipples but not a bother. Wish I could have found a Part D company that has this on formulary. I did not find it on any formulary so will have to switch back to the injections which I hate. I would definitely continue with this if I could afford it.

AndroGel (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: The first day I was on this medicine I didn't think about it until a few people at work said I seemed more energetic than usual. When I got home my wife said that not once that evening did I say how tired I was. I then realized that I wasn't tired as usual and felt like doing something other than sit on the couch. I have been on the medicine for 3 weeks and this 50 year old feels 30 again. The best way to describe how I felt before it was like I was in a fog and walking through corn syrup. That is gone and I feel great.

Axiron (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: Switched from Androgel to Axiron 3 weeks ago as total T levels slipped back into low range. Effects were immediate and noticeable. Great workouts, better mood, more energy, increased libido and truly major physical changes! I'm 50 years old and for the first time in my life I have a lean, flat stomach and without changing my workout at all. My weights at the gym have increased by about 20%. I do 45 mins of lifting, 30 mins of cardio 4-5 times a week. In three weeks, my body has changed completely and people are noticing! Go back to Dr. in 3 weeks to check levels....so far, it's been amazing for me.

AndroGel (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: I've been using Androgel about a Year now. I'm 42, have had zero drive since early 30's Started me on 8-pumps, now to 9-pumps. I saw someone mention potential effects of Depression, it's not helped mine. I also use Cytomel. (Adjunct Depression Treatment--however also HYPOthyroid. Me no Muscle Mass/Depression/Weight Loss The most pronounced effects, *MUCH* firmer erections. (like 16 again). That alone is worth it (no need for Cialis). Definitely recommend that alone.

Testim (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: I am a week into this. I shower in the morning and after completely drying, squirt half of the tube on each shoulder then rub in and around until it is spread with my first two fingers so not to waste it on my hands. I then wait as long as I can prior to putting on a shirt so it can completely dry. Just a little odor and not noticeably sticky. I feel less tired but it is still very early to say.

AndroGel (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: I don't see a whole lot of reviews from younger men. I am 24 with all the usual symptoms as everyone else, such as no sex drive at all or motivation or energy. T levels were 260. Got prescribed two pumps a day from the VA...I feel slightly better after about a week but nothing great yet. I feel that I need to go up to at least 6 pumps but I will find out in the beginning of Dec when my next blood work is scheduled, until then I will keep hope that it starts working better.

AndroGel (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: I am 56 years old. I started out with very low Testosterone levels around 150. Once on Androgel the level peaked at about 500 which was our goal. At the higher testosterone achieved with 4 pumps I encountered a large weight gain (not all muscle either). I also experienced an alarming amount of breast enlargement and breast pain behind the nipple. While on Androgel for only a few months I experienced an increase in libido and the return of night/morning erections. I also experienced a remarkable increase in muscle strength.

Axiron (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: Lilly told me that my undershirt is still a risk to my family after 10 hours. How am I supposed to manage that? Many people do laundry in my house. Shirts are in baskets and the laundry shoot. I can't get everyone to wash their hands every time they touch something of mine.

Axiron (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: Well my experience isn't as positive as most. I've been on Axiron for about 4 months, 2 pumps a day. When I began my total Testosterone was 209. Today it is 130, so it dropped about 80 points in 4 months while on this. Early on it did seem to improve things. Application isn't the best as it tends to run and drip. I also burned quite a bit which I eventually got used to. I am switching to Androgel which I've used in the past, and will hopefully have better results with that one. Overall Axiron is worth a shot if you have low T because it does seem to help quite a few guys - just not me.
