Androgel speed of efficacy

hi,

i used androgel last year and about 6 to 8 weeks i noticed muscularity, enlarged genitals, flat stomach, loss of flab, and some more energy, a better posture, etc.  then i stopped using it.  now i am using the 1.62% version, the full 4 pumps, and i am not noticing the same great changes i did last year when i was on the 1%.

i was wondering if some kind soul out there could tell me if it takes in excess of 6 to 8 weeks to notice significant differences using andogel 1.62% and if so, how long.  i am upset about this.  i was anticipated the beneficial effects.  

by the way, i know the 1% and the 1.62% are the same thing.

thanks

cb.

Hi,
How are you? AndroGel (testosterone),  a topical hormone gel works by replacing or supplementing the testosterone that is naturally made in the body. It is recommended that you take it as prescribed by your doctor. While effects may be seen after a few weeks, factors such as presence of illness, co-morbid conditions, stress and over-all health may have an effect. While taking this medicine, monitoring of the liver and  prostate is important.  It is best that you talk to your doctor about this also for proper evaluation. Take care and regards.
