Axiron (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: The applicator took a few tries to use properly. I just have to allow a few extra minutes in the morning before I put on a shirt. If I was in a real hurry, I would use a blow drier. I definitely feel better, but get my first blood test next week and I'll see how my levels are.

Axiron (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: I was recently diagnosed with Hypogonadism, so Axiron is the first replacement medicine I have used. I find it easy to use, and I don't think it has a bad odor. I can barely smell it. I just find that you need to give yourself about one minute per application. You have to move the applicator very slowly so it has time to spread and be absorbed. If you try and rush it, the watery consistency of the product will run down your body. Give yourself about three minutes for it to dry, and then get dressed.

AndroGel (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: I have been using AndroGel for the last two months and the results are great. More energy and more sex drive. I will be 50 soon and AndroGel makes me feel young again. Thanks to Androgel I do not need to take Viagra.

AndroGel (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: I am 54 and have been on Androgel for 4 months.1%. I have gone from number 84 to 450. My Dr. said the 1% is a low does and that I am doing great and it will continue. My nipples stick out which I have never had. Erections most of the day, which I like. I have started weights, pushups and situps and feeling wonderful. I was depressed but felt it was from my mother's death and my health had really taken a beating. Personally I feel better than I have in the last 5 years. So glad I had the test. Also most of my body hair has come back.

AndroGel (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: I'm a 47 year old who started out with 4 pumps of 1% Androgel after a few weeks my levels went from 250 to 450. General health I felt a lot better. Noticed improvement in my energy level. I was having a very difficult time motivating and always feeling weak. My energy level has come back. After about 2-3 weeks my doctor switched me to 2 pumps of the 1.62% Androgel. I still have my energy, but now having some of the side-effects listed. My urination is not so good. Short streams and much more often. Another side-effect is my breathing. Seem to have a heavy chest and some difficulty breathing. I'm going to see if I can go back down to the 1% gel to see if that helps.

Fortesta (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: I am a 54 yr old male with history of anxiety, depression and other mood disorders from about age 38. T-Levels were always on the low side of normal, but had recently dropped significantly. Symptoms became worse. Started an exercise program and could not lose any weight and recovery was slow. Started taking Fortesta June 5, 2011. I had no site reactions or any other adverse reactions. I did notice an immediate increase in resistance training performance, cardio performance and recovery. Weight loss accelerated even though appetite increased. Mood has changed positively, although not as significantly as physical changes have. Medicine is very expensive which is definitely a downside especially if this turns out to be a life long regimen.

I am 34 male. Diagnosed with osteoporosis. I had a 900 steel beam fall on me in 2001. I have had many stomach surgeries and also have an ileostomy and lost my left kidney. Been taking 300 mg of morphine for pain last ten years. I have been in deep severe depression for years. I have been on 100ml every 2 weeks of testosterone for a month and it has changed my life. My level was 325. I have interest in life now mentally feel really good. After 7-8 days I start to feel tired and not so good but, after my shot I feel great! Going to talk with the doctor to maybe every 7 to 10 days! Thanks for reading.

Axiron (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: WOW! I was weary at first when my doctor offered this new topical testosterone at my annual check up. The doctor gave me a free month to start and then a co-pay card that covered me at $25.00 per month for the first year. I even read on the card that it covers for cash paying patients without insurance coverage. Pay attention to the instructions because this is way different vs the gels. No mess if you follow the instructions. No more Androgel mess. Piece of cake. Thanks Doctor.

Fortesta (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: I am 30 yrs old and had a T-test done because I have had the following problems; I had gotten more cranky than normal, had been on medicines for depression for about 3 yrs with not much success, was tired or worn out, hot flashes or something similar to them, low sex drive. Anyways got my results back and my level was only 84. I could not believe that at only 30 I was having to deal with this. Been taking this for a week and can already tell a big difference. It smells like hand sanitizer and goes away quick, easy to use but expensive. I will update as I progress.

testosterone for Hypogonadism, Male: I am a 53 year old male who was diagnosed with Hypogonadism (188) and hypothyroidism. Started Armour Thyroid and Testosterone Cypionate 5 months ago. My Doctor adjusted the dosage 3 x and I am currently at 200mg (1ml) per week and I feel great. Increased libido (my wife thanks me, often) no more cold chills and an increase of 10 lbs of muscle mass. I have noticed no side effects. My wife does the weekly injections in the guts. I recommend a 23 gauge needle (1' or 1 1/2") to minimize the pain as I find them much more comfortable than the 21 gauge. Please find the right Doctor. You do not have to suffer and you too can have a much better quality of life.

Testopel (testosterone): I am about to do my 4th treatment. I have used Androgel and injections, and nothing has worked like this. You have to give it at least 2 weeks after the treatment to see the full effect. It has really worked for me. My symptoms go away until about 2 weeks before my next treatment. That is the only issue.

Testim (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: At age 55, I was placed on Testim gel (5 mg) once a day back in mid-December. Not sure what to expect, was concerned that there was no impact within the first month, but waited 2 months before evaluating. Good advice! First, I noticed more leg hair and beard growth. Greater interest in sex, including more daydreams and fantasies. Notice more muscle mass despite not working out my shoulders. After a half year, I can't imagine not having this in my life. The drug is being subsidized by the manufacturer for the first year. I don't know what I'll do then. I'd hate to give up this renewed interest in sex. No great emotional change. T levels are up. No erectile dysfunction too.

AndroGel (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: I am 42 yo and have had no energy or ambition for the last 5-6 years. Had no clue that my testosterone may be low. Had it checked and it was 125 so went to see a Urologist who did more labwork and in one week it dropped to 88. Started me Androgel 5 daily and I cannot believe the difference it has already made. I feel alive again. I have my levels checked again tomorrow and I know they are higher. Every man should have their T checked. Low affects everything in your body.

Axiron (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: I've tried Testim, shots, and now Axiron and find that Testim stuck to everything and shots are good, but lose potency near the end of the cycle. Axiron is messy and I can see how two pumps can get into one's system. It leaks everywhere until it dries, however, it seems to be better than the others.

testosterone for Hypogonadism, Male: I was diagnosed with hypogonadism (low testosterone) about ten years ago and started Androgel. I had no problem keeping my testosterone level in the normal range with the Androgel but it never made me feel better, i.e., no libido, low energy, depression. When I switched to Testosterone Cypionate it was like the sun came out. My libido came back as did my energy. I would recommend this to anyone with low testosterone and see what happens.

Axiron (testosterone): Feel better after two weeks but the smell is objectionable. Takes multiple washings to remove from clothes. My wife has allergies to scents and the odor gives her a headache. She also feels aggressive just from the aroma. I have been extremely careful about avoiding contamination. One of our cats even goes nuts smelling my tee shirt.

Axiron (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: This is the most effective delivery system yet. In the past I have used 1) Testim - too smelly and left my upper arms full of acne and 2) Striant - somewhat effective but not as efficient in delivering the medicine into the bloodstream. I feel the difference with only 30 mg a day. I think Lilly has a winner here.

Axiron (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: It is easier to use than the Testim or gel applications. No more sticky skin, no more acne on application area. Axiron does sting a little, but use deodorant before and follow directions. Not worried about sweating it off at the gym like Testim and the manufacturer is absorbing the cost for the first year.

Axiron (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: This was a breath of fresh air -- it took a few days to get used to the application process. However, in the end I am not lathering my body up, I'm not sticky and my hands are not contaminated with testosterone. An all around win!! No smell, not sticky and no hand contamination!! A

AndroGel (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: I have been using Androgel for about 3-1/2 weeks now. 4 pumps a day( 5 grams), and I am finding no difference in mood, sex drive, libido, weight, or anything. I have been applying it as recommended, yet nothing. I do not know my numbers as of yet, as my Doctor prescribed this over the phone. I was hoping that this would help me turn the corner.

Testim (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: Was recently diagnosed with low T (185). I am 45 yrs young and have always been active! Noticed in past recent months that I had no energy, headaches, low sex drive, no ambition.. etc. Was beginning to think I was depressed (although had no reason). After being diagnosed, my doctor placed me on 5mg tubes, once a day. Smell at first is a very heavy alcohol smell, but then turns into a lighter smelling cologne! Been taking for just over a month now, wife says YEA! Sex drive is out the roof, started back exercising, back to my 18 yr old self again. Levels haven't been check yet since beginning, but I'm sure its higher thanks to Testim! Would highly recommend it. Will give update after levels checked again.

AndroGel (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: I had been using Cialis which worked for a boost for about four years, and in the fifth year even after taking a dose, I didn%u2019t have interest in sex. My Doctor ran blood test and determined my T level was low. For the past 4 month I have used the 2.5 gram Androgel packs daily. I generally feel better. I have lost my belly flab. My love interest is better although I still rely on the Cialis, but now I have total control of my orgasm. I have lost testicle size, in fact, at times they will ascend into the inguinal canal until I push them back out. In short this 64 year old would say that Androgel is a nice improvement.

testosterone for Hypogonadism, Male: I am a 53 year old male diagnosed with hypogonadism and I had 4 injections so far. The first two were 200mg but lab tests after two injections still came up low (183) so I am now on 300 mg. Started home injections to avoid a trip to the doctor in between blood work. No problem but not for the faint of heart. I now have increased energy and am starting to feel more "normal" Coupled with Hypothyroidism treatment I have seen a leaner more muscular stature start to emerge. My doctor also suggested Saw Palmetto along with the testosterone and that had minimized the minor side effect of body acne from the higher doses.
