Androgel and room temp.?

The Androgel bottle says it's supposed to be kept at 77 degree's. The room I keep my Androgel in a roo thats about50 degree's . Could this be affecting the Androgel? It doesny seem to be working for me. Started on 4 pumps and worked at first then it didnt. Now on 6 pumps and I felt a difference but now that has declined. Jusy wondering if the room temp could be harming this drug and maybe why it doesnt seem to be working for me.

Thanks in advance,
Sutallee.

Hi,
    How are you? There is a chance for decreased efficacy due to low temperatures. The normal conditions are to store at 25°C (77°F); excursions permitted to 15° to 30°C (59° to 86°F). I would suggest that you get a check of serum testosterone to see the effect of treatment and depending upon that the dose adjustments and requirement can be assessed.
Consult your doctor for further assistance.

Temperature storage of Androgel....   Yikes, I have left the dispensor bottle of Androgel in the car for a period of 2-3 hrs under colder temperatures and on several occassions by accident.  Does this affect the useful\effectiveness of the Testosterone substance ? ?
