... Yuck! My skin feels like it's crawling, warm, and red down all arms, legs, torso, neck, shoulders, for a half hour. Should I back off on my dosage, or break the pill in half? How can I avoid this side effect yet still comply with the doctor's orders? I'm 56 yr old male on two pumps of Androgel 1.62% and 1000iu of Vitamin D3, as well as 20 mg Benicar for HP daily.
