Fortesta (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "I been taking Fortesta for a week, I can say my mood has been better but still feel drained. I hope that this really works for me due to the fact I lost my wife and kids over me not being me."

Axiron (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "I'm 56 had little energy, slept a lot and gained a good deal of weight. I have felt really good since I started Axiron. The change was immediate and dramatic. I look forward to taking it. My levels were very low and after two weeks of using Axiron the test showed the level was higher and the doctor was pleased. I feel a libido again and I have a lot more energy. My appetite is way down too, not sure that's an effect. When I use the applicator I hold it in one place against the skin for a few seconds before I move it around, then I slowly move it while pushing it in and out a little. Don't let it come off the skin and it now runs down my body rarely. Hopefully it keeps working. I like it a lot."

Testim (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "I had been using Androgel 5G dose but, began using Testim 5G dose in January due to changes in insurance coverage. I have found that the Testim has maintained my testosterone levels at the same levels as the Androgel. However, the tubes versus foil packets, are much harder to use and get all of the gel out. Hard to squeeze the tube when your hands are slippery. The biggest objection I have with Testim is the smell. The unique strong musky scent is overpowering. I don't understand why this product would need to be scented. I will change to another, product for myself the smell is so objectionable."

Axiron (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "I'm a 40 year old male who after about 5 yrs of slowly progressing into a grumpy, fat, couch potato, went and got checked for low T. Results showed it low at 250, with a free T level of 10, so the Dr put me on Axiron at 60 mg per day. Axiron is the only prescription I have tried, and I have been on it for three months. Got the three month results today and learned that my T levels (while taking Axiron) have DROPPED to 130 with a free T level of 3. I never saw the benefits that most of you have. This is the only place I saw mentioned that others have also had a decline in T while taking Axiron. I be it is a lot more common than we know."

For Hypogonadism, Male: "Just recently got put on testosterone. I just did my first injection 3 days ago, feel pretty good so far. I have been a body builder most of my life. I'm only 20 by the way and my test levels were 266 after blood work from what I've read this is extremely low for my age."

For Hypogonadism, Male: "For 20 years I have treated my hypogonadism with daily, very small injections of testosterone cypionate administered subcutaneously. Blood levels have been excellent and consistent. Dosage is easily fine-tuned if blood levels are too high or to low."

For Hypogonadism, Male: "I have complained to Doctor for 14 yrs about low sex drive and erectile dysfunction. Every year doctor would test my Total T level and give me samples of the erectile dysfunction drug of the month and a script for 6 pills with or without refill. In that time I was treated for anxiety and insomnia. I also had surgery on my left shoulder for pain from unknown cause (no rotator cuff issue). Starting to have pain in right shoulder. I was in a very bad relationship and stayed cause I didn't think I could do any better. I was told to get Free T tested, I went to dr and asked what was my free T level last year, he had never tested it! It was low! I started to take testosterone cypionate and within 3 weeks I was off anxiety and insomnia medicine and right should pain is gone!"

Testim (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "49 yo. Hypertension and diabetes. No sex drive for the past year or so. Primary care doctor said no to T treatment because her test results said normal. I went to urologist who started me on the 1% tubes. 15 days in and already noticed sex drive changes. Concerned about blood pressure though. Seems higher but cardio doctor just changed medicine. I want to stick with it and see what comes up next. Smell and stickiness no problem."

For Hypogonadism, Male: "I'm 33 years old and have no reason to be low on energy and motivation. In addition I had a slight depression and an inability to focus, like my head was in a fog. Went to my doctor to find out what was wrong. I wasn't on any other medications, I'm 5' 10" and 160 pounds and otherwise very healthy. Dr told me to exercise more which I did but was so tired that I just couldn't do anything. Went back to the dr. and he did a full blood work up. Testosterone was 206 (350 - 1100 was normal at my lab) and he gave me 200mg/ml injection. All symptoms were gone and my sex life has never been better. I feel like a new man, I had no idea just how much an effect my low T was having on my life. This is my first injection."

Axiron (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "Axiron is AWESOME. I am 47 and had similar experiences as most everyone else; constant fatigue, no energy or interest in anything, sex drive non-existent, after 8 hrs of sleep I felt like I needed 8 more and just generally felt like death most of the time. My T level was 135 when I saw my Urologist, after about 3 months of biweekly injections, I was up to 344. Then the Axiron was recommended. After the first application I felt turbo-charged! It took me about 2 days to get over the initial side effects, which were nausea and a headache, but after about 3 days these went away. I've been on it about 3 weeks now and I feel 19 again. Full of energy, sex drive through the roof, I just hope it keeps up. T levels at 701 now."

For Hypogonadism, Male: "I have been on Testosterone for almost two years now under a doctors supervision. I had low libido, no energy and wanted to build more muscle. I am now 51 years old and have achieved what I wanted. I am currently taking 200MG/ML 1cc per week, and I am also on an estrogen blocker Anastrozole. I see my doctor every six months to check my T level, estrogen level, PSA and to have my prostate checked. The key here guys is to find a doctor interested in your overall health and not just raising your T."

Axiron (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "In one month Axiron brought my T levels from around 200, to 456 (at last check). Applying is a piece of cake & I honestly feel great. Sex life and overall mood has noticeably increased. I look forward to applying Axiron in the morning & it has truly changed my life."

Fortesta (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "I am a 54 year old male and experienced erectile dysfunction for many years. T levels were about 80 although I work out regularly and carry a fair amount of muscle. Dr put me on Testim for about a year and my levels went up to about 400 but the gel smells terrible, takes a long time to dry and is sticky when dry. Dr then recommended I try Fortesta. It comes in a pressurized pump that is easy to apply on your thighs. It dries within seconds and has no smell at all! Within a few days, I started to feel stronger during weight training and experienced more vivid dreams. After 6 weeks, T levels were almost 800! I had also tried the T implant, called Testopel, but I like Fortesta better. I do shower before bed to avoid transmitting to wife."

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!"
