it be the same? Thanks for your answer in advance
The assumption is that the longer the gel sets upon your skin, the longer it is available to be absorbed. Therefore, if you apply it first thing in the morning, you have the longest period of time in contact with your skin.
Someone who applies the gel in the evening, is likely to lay down and fall asleep. That means a lower metabolism and less active body, so blood circulation falls, etc. Also, there is a greater chance that you'll be moved to engage in skin-to-skin contact with your partner during the night, which is warned against in all the literature.
So, the best timing is the morning for the longest period of exposure for you (even under your clothes) and the least chance of cross-contaimination.
Everything he said is true, but a pharmacist that works for the manufacture of Androgel told me the main reason is because morning is the time of day when the body would naturally have its highest testosterone levels or peak. Androgel causes testosterone to peak shortly after (within hours) of application. So all said and done, it is to keep, as close as possible, with your body's hormonal balance... as it would be naturally in a healthy adult male without hypogonadism.
