    Androgel/Testogel

    My doctor has prescribed me Testogel (The UK name for Androgel) at 50mg a day. Is this enough to have an anabolic effect?

    No. The therapeutic dosage is the same amount the body would produce. You would have to bathe and soak in the gel to have an anabolic effect to the degree that anabolic steroids will.

    I've been on Androgel for over two years, and while it has help improve my libido and helped me gain muscle and grow, it has had no more of an effect than my own testosterone, in normal amounts would.

    If you want the effects of anabolics, you have to use anabolics. But in our cases, being monitored by a doctor, it's not a good idea. Your testosterone level will go through the roof, tipping off the doc that something is up. Besides, if you go the anabolics route, the gel becomes superfluous.

    Advice

    Ive tried loads to gain some weight and muscle mass, not a thing happens. No weight gain no signs of any increase in muscle size.

    Tried all kinds in the gym , still no joy, tried eating 6 meals a day. still nothing. I think I must either have a very high metabolism or perhaps low testosterone level.

    Ive not had a test done yet, but are thinking perhaps it would be a good idea. what should my levels be and what exactly is the test likely to show.

    Im 37 5ft 11 tall and weigh 9 stone, I was wondering about Testogel would it make any difference to my weight and muscle growth if my levels were low or OK, surely if they were OK the testogel would make a bigger inpact on building my body up??

    Also if I used testogel how long would you recommend using it for, is it something like 6 wks on 2 wks off etc? and is there a real possibility of me loosing my hair if I went on testogel?

    appreciate any advice

    I choose not to do 'roids any more, so I do not really 'visit' this section anymore. But one quick look makes it obvious you and TOM, have totally fucked up the anabolic forum. I don't know Mudge's opinion, but I notice he no longer posts here much, and I assume it is because he has too much grace AND class to associate himself with this bullshit.

    Very true, JD. Nothing wrong with bumping an old post. Then again, I don't have 41,000 posts...

    This is the most bro intelligent thread...

    Yes, your going to get gains off of T Gel, or you can. It depends on how much your rub on/the dosage, either way, your going to get more that gel than you likely ever would from your own Testes if your above 25 (that's an age pulled from somewhere near my buttocks region). 50mgs is ungodly low, but if 15% of that gets across, giving you about 12mg a day... Well, your body typically doesn't produce above "10mgs" a day naturally. So your still flying high on TRT.

    More like rub on a few extra ML's... And test gel IS an Anaboic steroid. It's al about the delivered doses... But he wouldn't have to bathe and soak in it to get around 100mgs across, more like a handful or abit more.

    Be sure to get on a low dose AE and AI if you decide to up the gel amount, and run HCG for short bursts (like one week) about every three-four weeks at 500 a week to keep your testes full and allow you to have kids later on if you want. Also, gyno is one of the biggest side effects of TRT. So be careful. Personally, I think this is a big waste of time at such a low dose.

    Ive finally gotten thru to one doctor - my good ol regular medical doctor from where i was born and raised..NY.

    He gave me Testim which is same as Androgel. My total test levels confirmed i was on the low end so i'm to apply the 50mg daily for 8 weeks then have blood work done (have paper). I WILL let you guys know the effect it had on me in 2 months. Hoping for 200 pts additional test score.

    Hi, i just got testogel from my doctor...50mg to start with!
    But as he said, "We will put tons of gel on you for one year and see what happens"
    He ment that after 2 weeks, he will double the dose! And so on...Will this have positiv effects on my training?

    Just got a prescription for Testim (50mg). My test levels were about 250 (the range I was told is between 240-850). I filled the prescription today, and to my dismay, a 30 day supply cost me $200. Any ideas on a cheaper option? I've tried to research info on injections. They sound cheaper, but does the doc have to do them, or can I?
    I wish my lawn was emo so it would cut itself
