I have heard one report from a pharmacist that two pumps (standard dose) of Androgel is slightly less concentrated than one tube (standard dose) of Testim.
She was quite certain of her facts, but I don't recall how she came to this fact.
It may be in the strength of the concentration. So, if YOUR DOCTOR decides that you need more, he could call for more self-administered pumps per application, or more frequent applications (twice a day, one pump each) or something else that might equal a use of one Testim tube (5 mg). I wouldn't worry about it. I think they are basically the same thing... but androgel allows for easier adjustment than a sealed tube of Testim, which is a more fixed dose.
