I've started Testogel, I think it's Androgel in the USA. I dose a day is too much. (Nipples on fire!) but half isn't enough. Does anybody else take a whole dose, then 1/2 a dose the next day (or something similar) and how does it work for you?
Another user here "PassTheGel" states that his doctor recommended that he do half a doze in the AM and the other half in the PM and that the difference has been night and day for him. He says his doctor told him he was burning through it too fast with one large dose in the morning.
I've never heard of this before, but I guess it makes for a more even dosage over time.
I'm on Testim right now, and it's hard not to use one tube all at once. I'm considering asking for a test switch to Androgel when my current supply runs out, but I'm really not familiar with Androgel and not dissatisfied with Testim.
I have just started Androgel since there's a price reduction this year to no more than $10. I am experiencing an ache in my prostate, but don't know if it's Androgel related. I'm just started peddling the recumbant bike at the gym, but didn't notice any groin impact. I'm on two squirts on my shoulders each morning, but based upon other responses here, I am considering busting that in two... that is, one squirt spread after morning shower, one at gym after work each evening. That would even out the dosage with two consistent hits, rather than front loading just one. Does anyone disagree?
