Axiron (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "I did a fair amount of research of which testosterone treatment to try. After reading the reviews I chose Axiron. Unfortunately, my results weren't that great. After 4 weeks on 30 mg per day, my levels actually dropped . My doctor increased the dose to 90 mg and did a recheck 2weeks later. A little improvement but still below where I was before I even tried Axiron. My doctor referred me to a urologist who is running tests to rule out if it's something else causing the low levels, but in the meantime, recommended Testim. After reading these reviews I'm not looking forward to Testim but will give it a try. It's a LOT more expensive. "

For Hypogonadism, Male: "Low t levels due to treatment with opioids. 58 Year old Male, Major leg surgery 7 years ago due to arterial dissection. Been on Hydrocodone and Tramadol since surgery. Talked with M.D. re: diminished sex drive. She said she could give me Viagra or try a more systemic approach. We started about a year ago injecting 1ml every 2 weeks. The result has been FANTASTIC. I have what I think is more drive than when I married at 27. I am more confident, better able to make decisions, and my sex has gone from a few times a month, to quite a few times a week. Several of my friends have also talked with their doctors and they are now on either the shots or gel. All are very happy."

Axiron (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "I am 65 years old and on April 2011 I had TURP surgery to correct a very enlarged prostate. Before surgery my T level was approximately 450. After the surgery it quickly dropped to around 150. My urologist prescribed Testim Gel, and it did not work by increasing the T level. Then switched to Androgel, it also did not work, the T level barely increased to 159. Then switched to Androderm patches, also did not work, in fact my T level dropped to 121. All these 3 medicines gave me side effects. Then my doctor prescribed Axiron, and it worked incredibly well, in one month my T level went from 121 to 880 and I feel great with NO side effect. I am super satisfied with the results of AXIRON."

Testim (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "Five years ago as a 48 yo male; I was tested and diagnosed with low testosterone levels (263 mg). I was put on 5mg daily and tested over 900 in three weeks. I was recently bumped to 10mg daily as my symptoms began to return. I'm guessing my natural production has declined further. Been on 10mg for three days and waiting for improvement."

Testim (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "Been on Testim for around 3 weeks now. Have noticed slight changes in libido but not much in the way of anything else. My T levels were on the floor so it may take a couple of months to get them sorted out. I suspect I have had low testosterone levels for a while now but it was only when things got tough and I felt down, depressed and thoroughly miserable at the age of 48 I decided to see doctor. I suggested to GP that it was an androgen problem and she told me that 99 per cent of guys who come in and tell her that don't actually have low T. I persuaded her to run the test and it came back low, 144 I think. Did a confirmation level then I was referred to Endocrine consultant. Hopefully feel much better soon."

For Hypogonadism, Male: "I'm 47 years old, my T levels were tested anywhere from a low of 56 to a high of 255. I used a natural testosterone cream from a compounding shop for almost a year, no change. My doctor then put me on 1 tube of Testim per day, no change. He then put me on 2 tubes per day, still no change. He finally gave me 1cc trstosterone cypionate per week and my levels are now around 850, and that was a full week after my last injection. I believe the half life is 12 days so my levels 2 or 3 days after an injection are probably over 1,000. Feel great, losing belly fat and putting on a lot of muscle."

Axiron (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "I have been using Testim gel 1% for the past year. I found the gel to be problematic due to tackiness, application issues and smell. I have been using Axiron for about two weeks and really feel the difference. The application has no discernible scent and no tacky feel. With the Axiron your hands never come into contact with the solution, it goes on under your arms with the applicator and dries smell free in 30 seconds."

Androderm (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "Androderm HAD given me back a reasonable level of energy, upped my mood and allowed me to function sexually again. Unfortunately, with the changes to the product my insurance company no longer has it on its formulary as a Preferred medicine and the cost is about $1500.00 a year (co-pay's). I am looking for an alternative that still allows me the benefits of a patch, without the outrageous price. Good product but I can't afford it!"

Testim (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "I am on my third week of treatment. Just four weeks ago I was apathetic and depressed. I had been treated for depression with an antidepressant. After two weeks my depression was all but gone. I noticed an increase in strength, libido and initiative. I have taken care of maintenance my home needed in two years in two weeks. I use mine a little different. I use the 5g 50mg daily. I am glad that my psychologist suggested blood work for low Testosterone. It was the correct diagnosis."

Testim (testosterone) for : "48 yo using for 1 month. Was falling asleep after dinner, agitated, and unable to focus at work with no perceived sexual problems. Now I'm staying awake after dinner, no agitation, and focus is back. Erections are more rigid and quality of sex is much improved. Wife is happy, so daddy is happy. Didn't realize I was losing some "game" in the bedroom. Thought it was normal for my age. Stickiness is a bit of a problem on some days. I am a professional and have to wear dress shirts. I rub the gel in, wash hands, shave and then go over with my hands again and wash hands prior to putting on a shirt. Some days are more sticky than others. Called company and they have no plans to correct it. Smell is not bad. I like the results!"

Testim (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "Suspected for months if not a couple of years low levels of testosterone (I am 46). Anyway, was tested a couple of times and levels were slightly below minimum. Got started on 12/30/11 with Testim. I am pretty self conscious of the scent. Anyway, I found myself wanting intimacy for the first time in months and we were both home! This took place a few hours after my first application. Could it be placebo effect? Anyway, managed to feel good the remainder of the day and into the evening. Had a big meal and found myself polishing off a dish that previously I would have not finished previously (interesting). I woke up two times after falling asleep to empty my bladder which is a rare event but noted side effect. So far so good!"

Testim (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "I am 59 yrs. old. The last 8 or so years I have had no energy and NO sex drive. Dr. checked my test level and it was 16 (yes, 16). Doctor said he had never seen anybody that low. Started using the 5 gram tube. Noticed a difference the next day. After 1 month I feel great and my sex drive is way up, my beard is growing faster, etc. I don't want to ever look back!"

Androderm (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "I have been using the Androderm 2.5 patch for 45 days. My testosterone level has been 241 for the past several years. The first 30 days I had zero side effects. I have noticed in the past two weeks I am developing rashes, raised red "bumps", itching and swelling in the areas where I used the patch. This condition is actually considered a serious side effect that requires immediate medical attention. I have developed one particular area on my thigh that has become enlarged with intense itching. If it does not improve with 24-48 hours I will report the Emergency Room at my local VA. I will request my doctor to switch me to the gel which reviews indicate a distinct odor but that would be much less intrusive than these current side effects."

Axiron (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "Axiron seems to be working well for me. I am 35 and this is my first hormone replacement used so I do not know about how the others might work for me. I am awaiting my first blood test results after 7 weeks of usage, but I feel honestly like a normal man again. I don't know how else to put it. My initial levels were at 140 prior to starting therapy with zero sex drive that was impacting my marriage, fatigue and loss of interest in normal 'fun' things. Within 3-5 days of starting Axiron my libido returned to teen-age levels, I have ample energy and interest in my normal hobbies again. The application is a little to get used to, but once I got it, I have no issues. Otherwise it would have gotten a '10' from me. Thank you!"

Testim (testosterone) for : "Hi there folks. I just wanted to add the comment that I have found this thread very informative. My doctor telephoned me a few days ago and mentioned I had a low testosterone reading on a recent blood test( excuse spelling). My chemist didn't have this medicine in stock and has ordered it for me to collect and use from Monday next week. The comments from my GP was a total surprise and it was good therefore to come across a community with this thread to give me some insight as to "what was what" about this medication. After Monday 19th December I will add here how I'm getting on with it. "

Androderm (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "I'm 24 and suffer from anorexia and I'm in treatment now and my doctor put me on Androderm. It changed my life I went to other doctors and they just prescribed erectile dysfunction medication. When I got into treatment I found out my level was at 201 and was supposed to be between 800 and 900. I got my appetite back, less fatigue, and all around feel awesome!"

Testim (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "38 yo male, Low T, 290 at start, put on Androgel for 4 months, levels went lower even though I felt better and lost about 10lbs and put on a bit of muscle, went to Urologist for it going lower, he didn't like the absorption of Androgel so put me on Testim. Been on Testim for 3 days now, smell is strong and lingers all day for me, not bad but not good, 4 people made comments my first day on it, 2 good 2 bad. Still a hit to my ego, wife doesn't mind the smell, my kids said it is weird but okay, one female coworker said she liked it, lol. They all thought it was a new deodorant. Not sticky if you rub it in real good. I put it on last night before bed, no smell today after morning shower. Hope it still helps me this way though."

Testim (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "Started 5 g tube once per day 6 weeks ago. 38 yo male. Initial T was 234 and on retest 312 ng/dl. Free T was mildly low as well. Feeling great now. Energy and libido are up. Strength at gym is improving. Morning wood is back! Focus, concentration are improving. I don't feel so cloudy and down. Tested this week and T was 629! I am very happy. Testim is a bit sticky but rub it in well and put a bit of baby powder on shoulders. Get tested if you have symptoms, and get your mojo back men."

Testim (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "I find the smell of this medicine intolerable. If I wanted to wear a fragrance it certainly wouldn't be this. I expected little or no odor but instead found that this stuff can't be washed off completely and the smell can now be found all over my house and continuously is wafting up from my skin and overwhelming my sense of smell. Based on my experience I could now identify any male that is wearing this as it is like waving a banner that says "guess what fragrance I have on today?". I was on Androgel for 4 years and now my healthcare provider has only this 1 option for a testosterone gel. I really can't speak of its effectiveness yet but I will probably find another method to dispense the testosterone!"

Axiron (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "I have been on Axiron for about 3 months. The first month I only did one pump and noticed a big difference in energy and clarity. My T levels were at 395. However, the effects began to wear off and the doctor asked me to go to 2 pumps instead. That helped for a while but I believe the fatigue is coming back. I don't want to use a lot of this. I need to get my levels checked again, but after a month and a half they had actually dropped quite a bit. I was also on steroid for a nasal issue which I am sure didn't help."

Testim (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "Been on Testim for 2.5 months. Huge improvement in mood, and physical stature. Started working out again. I feel great! Strong and sexy. Wife likes it too! My libido has increased and the reaction from other females is incredible. I lost 25 lbs prior to starting and am now seeing my abs again. The energy is awesome as I motivate a group for business part time. Love the smell. Application is a daily chore but worth it."

For Hypogonadism, Male: "Age 33, and stronger than ever I still suffered no sex drive and easily agitated. Now after 1st month and 2 doses of 200mg later, I feel even better and my wife finally got her man back. It has already made our tension dissolve. Even my trainer workout partner said no way I have low T. But tested at 267. Get tested, well worth it."

AndroGel (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "I'm a 27 year old male who uses Fentanyl for chronic pain, and as a result, my testosterone dropped to 178. Aside from the obvious sexual dysfunctions from having low testosterone, I was constantly BURNING UP hot all the time, even with the AC down to 64 degrees! These hot flashes stopped within a week of me starting treatment, and my sexual functions improved dramatically. After a month my testosterone was 544, better, but still not where I'd like it, so I'm going to ask for the 7.5mg dose. I also have type 1 diabetes with insulin resistance, and the Androgel definitely helped the insulin resistance. This medicine looks and smells just like hand sanitizer and is very easy to use. The fumes can be pretty strong, but I got used to it."
