Axiron (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "Have fought low Testosterone levels for 10 years (starting in my mid-30's). T-level range untreated=<200. Initially, used Testim but it was much too sticky with transfer concerns and because my body did not absorb it well my levels would never get above low-normal. Was on Striant for several years and it works pretty well but dosing is 2x per day so I could not handle using in evening (kept me awake, anxious, etc). Two months ago, I was prescribed Axiron and it's the best testosterone replacement! Applying under the arm eliminates most or any transfer concern and because it's alcohol based, it dries quickly. I did switch to spray deodorant because roll-ons became sticky. Most important, I feel great all day and evening and my levels are 500's which seem to be my best."

Axiron (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "My husband's testosterone levels have been crashing. He is on opioid for a spinal fusion that did not take. His total testosterone level 3 days ago was 35 when it should be between 550-700! No that is not a typing error. You can imagine how he was feeling. He has just started the Axiron so it is to early to tell. I wanted to let everyone know that on Axiron's website, there is a phone number your doctor can call and the company will send a copay card that will make your cost, even with insurance, $25.00 per month. The card will pay up to $75 per monthly prescription. The card is good for 11 months. Hope this helps! It is definitely some pricey stuff!"

Testim (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "Have been using Tesopel implants for the last year but they are now not available. Asked the Uro for a temporary solution and he put me on Testim. My wife is very sensitive to smells and notices it but doesn't hate it. Seems to be working for me but not as effective as the implant. Works better when you squeeze out the WHOLE tube into your palm and then apply."

Axiron (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "I'm 59, good shape, pretty well preserved. Prostate removed due to cancer. Levels were around 150. Started Axiron and energy level, libido improved. Levels now around 650. Happy with results but having redness under arms and a few small skin tags. I started putting on my calves until I can get my Dr to return my calls"

Axiron (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "I was on Androgel when I read about Axiron. While Androgel was OK, it didn't seem to do much for my libido. It did help with weight loss but other effects were mild. I asked my doctor to switch my prescription, which he did. Wow, this stuff really upped my libido significantly. I am 69 and feeling more like 45. Other than the mild burning after applying it (like some deodorants) I have not experienced any negative side effects. Application, once you realize you don't push the pump like you do with Androgel (sends it flying), but press slowly and apply slowly it is actually faster and easier to do with less mess. I would highly recommend trying this if you are having problems with diminished libido."

Axiron (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "I got a free 30 day supply to try and outside of getting used to filling the delivery system I found it was not difficult at all to use. When I started using it the force from the pump was so great it made about 1/4 of the liquid fly out and land on the counter. I learn to slowly fill the cup with the container on it's side worked without losing any product. Otherwise only slight swelling of my ankles and my nipples but not a bother. Wish I could have found a Part D company that has this on formulary. I did not find it on any formulary so will have to switch back to the injections which I hate. I would definitely continue with this if I could afford it."

AndroGel (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "The first day I was on this medicine I didn't think about it until a few people at work said I seemed more energetic than usual. When I got home my wife said that not once that evening did I say how tired I was. I then realized that I wasn't tired as usual and felt like doing something other than sit on the couch. I have been on the medicine for 3 weeks and this 50 year old feels 30 again. The best way to describe how I felt before it was like I was in a fog and walking through corn syrup. That is gone and I feel great."

Axiron (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "Switched from Androgel to Axiron 3 weeks ago as total T levels slipped back into low range. Effects were immediate and noticeable. Great workouts, better mood, more energy, increased libido and truly major physical changes! I'm 50 years old and for the first time in my life I have a lean, flat stomach and without changing my workout at all. My weights at the gym have increased by about 20%. I do 45 mins of lifting, 30 mins of cardio 4-5 times a week. In three weeks, my body has changed completely and people are noticing! Go back to Dr. in 3 weeks to check levels....so far, it's been amazing for me."

AndroGel (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "I've been using Androgel about a Year now. I'm 42, have had zero drive since early 30's Started me on 8-pumps, now to 9-pumps. I saw someone mention potential effects of Depression, it's not helped mine. I also use Cytomel. (Adjunct Depression Treatment--however also HYPOthyroid. Me no Muscle Mass/Depression/Weight Loss The most pronounced effects, *MUCH* firmer erections. (like 16 again). That alone is worth it (no need for Cialis). Definitely recommend that alone."

Testim (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "I am a week into this. I shower in the morning and after completely drying, squirt half of the tube on each shoulder then rub in and around until it is spread with my first two fingers so not to waste it on my hands. I then wait as long as I can prior to putting on a shirt so it can completely dry. Just a little odor and not noticeably sticky. I feel less tired but it is still very early to say."

AndroGel (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "I don't see a whole lot of reviews from younger men. I am 24 with all the usual symptoms as everyone else, such as no sex drive at all or motivation or energy. T levels were 260. Got prescribed two pumps a day from the VA...I feel slightly better after about a week but nothing great yet. I feel that I need to go up to at least 6 pumps but I will find out in the beginning of Dec when my next blood work is scheduled, until then I will keep hope that it starts working better."

AndroGel (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "I am 56 years old. I started out with very low Testosterone levels around 150. Once on Androgel the level peaked at about 500 which was our goal. At the higher testosterone achieved with 4 pumps I encountered a large weight gain (not all muscle either). I also experienced an alarming amount of breast enlargement and breast pain behind the nipple. While on Androgel for only a few months I experienced an increase in libido and the return of night/morning erections. I also experienced a remarkable increase in muscle strength."

Axiron (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "Lilly told me that my undershirt is still a risk to my family after 10 hours. How am I supposed to manage that? Many people do laundry in my house. Shirts are in baskets and the laundry shoot. I can't get everyone to wash their hands every time they touch something of mine."

Axiron (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "Well my experience isn't as positive as most. I've been on Axiron for about 4 months, 2 pumps a day. When I began my total Testosterone was 209. Today it is 130, so it dropped about 80 points in 4 months while on this. Early on it did seem to improve things. Application isn't the best as it tends to run and drip. I also burned quite a bit which I eventually got used to. I am switching to Androgel which I've used in the past, and will hopefully have better results with that one. Overall Axiron is worth a shot if you have low T because it does seem to help quite a few guys - just not me."

For Hypogonadism, Male: "My mom is bipolar and for the longest time I thought I had it too. Lack of energy, restlessness, cold sweats, pain in my back from osteoporosis from low testosterone. This went on for years. I went to my doctor a month ago and my T level was 90 out of 1,080 and I'm only 27 years old. The difference really is night and day once you build up a good amount of Testosterone in your system. I feel ten years younger and I want to be physically active again, been playing more sports in the last month and a half then several years combined, prior to the shots. I'm supposed to start taking Androgel soon, I hope that is pretty effective also."

AndroGel (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "I am 35 and in the past year I could feel I was losing everything and fast. Had my doc run some test and low testosterone came up. I was at 52, almost nothing and was definitely feeling it. Been on Androgel now for 6 MONTHS, KNOW MOST RECENT TEST ARE 456,and feeling much better."

Axiron (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "Gentlemen I am following up with my prior review of AXIRON. Now that I have been on it for two months there are a couple of well, downsides to this and depending upon how you view such things you may find them a negative. My "boys" have indeed gotten smaller (not to a huge degree) and the amount of "ejaculate" I put out is much, MUCH less. At 53 I don't give a care about those things but some do. I have lost a full inch of fat off my waste, sex is great again. I actually feel like doing things again to working out more, etc. etc. Whatever tradeoffs there are they are worth it."

Testim (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "Been using Testim 1 Gel for 28 days. I'm a 54 y/o, otherwise healthy male who had been experiencing sub-zero sex drive, depression, fatigue and erectile dysfunction. After four weeks I've noticed I'm putting on some muscle (but I also spend four days a week at the gym) and I am fantasizing (a lot). Havent noticed any real improvement in the erectile dysfunction arena, but I maintain the erection I do have, quite a bit longer. I believe I'm making progress, but I'd like to see more! By the way women love this smell...at least the dozen or more who've commented on it to me, anyway. My original "T" score was 208 and I get tested again next month and will be interested in seeing the degree of change."

Axiron (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "Went to my doctor to discuss issues with erectile dysfunction. All I got was a prescription for Viagra. Didn't like the side effects. Doctor ordered tests to rule out problems with plugged arteries. After that was ruled out, I pushed for a testosterone test, free and total . Results were below the normal range. He prescribed 60 mg of Axiron per day. After 8 weeks my total T went fro 300 to 1300 with free rising from 7 to 33. Feel great with lots of energy, positive attitude, and erectile problems are gone."

Axiron (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "For about 8 months or so I had started to feel completely different than I had ever felt in life. Now at 53 years old, I don't expect to feel like 20 but I sure didn't want to feel dead either. No interest in things, no libido at all, depressed, moody and didn't care. I had no energy...none! My first thought was it was thyroid related since I suffer from Hypothyroidism and just thought the meds needed to be changed. My doctor and I discussed it, took the various blood tests etc. The thyroid was fine but my testosterone levels had fallen almost 200 points since the previous test about a year ago. So, my doc put me on a one month trial of Axiron and what a difference. Numbers up 100 no more complaints!"

For Hypogonadism, Male: "Truth. It's safe. Great. Works. Self injections are easy and painless. Doctors office will teach you. Simply put I feel incredible. 45 304 testosterone going up to 800. Changed my life. Go to a urologist. A good one. They know. Good luck."

Testim (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "I used Axiron at first and noticed an improvement but nothing explosive. I think the absorption was decreased as you put in your armpits and then have to put deodorant. T levels did not really go up. Switched to Testim and I have really noticed a huge difference. More energy, improved muscular definition (which was decreasing before treatment even though I am always active), sharper, much improved sex drive and mood swings are gone. Have not yet done a T level test with Testim, but I expect higher levels. I recommend that you really apply the gel on both shoulders (half tube on each) and rub it into the skin. This sure helps alleviate the stickiness to your shirts. The smell can be bothersome but what is the alternative? Low T?"

Axiron (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "I had some weird side effects while on this medication. I experienced gout in one ankle then I had a tooth abscess then I had a sinus infection and then tooth pain. Not sure if these things were actually side effects of Axiron or just a coincidence. I felt incredible in between the side effects though and slept better and had more energy. Not sure if I will continue taking it."
