I agree that you should advise your doctor of any adverse side effects immediately before discontinuing usage... but if these effects are serious, there's no reason why you need continue to apply a gel daily until you can get into your doctor's office. That is, stopping for a day or two or three is not going to produce an extreme reaction, like... say, a heart attack. Your T-level in your system built up slowly, and missing a day or two isn't going to make it drop dangerously. But it will eventually start to fall.
In the meantime, what are the multiple side effects that have you concerned? Acne? Muscle cramps? Flushed feeling? Hair trigger arrousal? Hair growth?
Please explain. Not all of these need be serious side-effects. Some can be managed. Your doctor will probably say the same thing.
