I have been on Androgel For about 18 months numbers have been pretty good for a 65 year old the only problem I have is very graphic sexual dreams of my wife with other men when I have these dreams I wake up with a good erection and sometime during the day we will have sex, the problem is when I have these dreams I can not go back to sleep. I talked to my Dr about them he asked if there was any violence in the dreams which there is not has any one else had these problems.
I'm 65 years old too and have been on Androgel 1.62 for 3 months and 2 pumps nightly. I too have started having very graphic sexual dreams of a general nature. I think it is natural to dream about your real life - androgen or not. There is probably no reason your doctor can't give you a light sleeping pill like Sonata. It worked for me. You may need to play with the dosage. Testosterone is strong stuff as you certainly know by now. I'd also have some heart to heart talking with the wife and tell her you love her and are having these weird dreams due to the testosterone. That's your call, Hawk69. All in all you are doing really well for 18 months and that is your only side effect. All the best to you, Tony
