    So I'm running formasurge at 4 pumps daily while on test e and the pump is constantly getting clogged up. I clean it daily but sometimes the resulting pump is white and sometimes it is pinkish.

    As a result I don't think I'm getting proper dosing for this and it's really frustrating. I'm very puffy and my gyno is appearing on one side. I have had to resort to letro now to try to get things in line.

    What's up with the pumps? What can I do to fix this because I don't seem to be getting much AI help?

    Have you taken notice of the amount dispensed unclogged vs clogged? I had the same problem with another transdermal Form product earlier in the year. To my knowledge there isn't a specific fix. I know it's a pain but clean the nozzle before every use.

    Clear it out and shake it before each use.

    You could also try an oral syringe. Fill the syringe with desired dose and apply to skin as normal. I do this frequently with transdermals when I want to be very specific with the dosing.

    Some other tricks that have worked for me with other products are getting some really hot water in a cup and submerging most of the bottle in there for a while to get it really warm then shaking the holy hell out of it. Seems to stop it for a bit by getting it to dissolve a little more. It really isn't the pumps themselves so much as the powders, I have used other form transdermals with the same issues.

    Try heating it up a little and shaking it up really good and some of the powders may dissolve a bit more but it is a problem one faces when you opt for a better carrier that dries faster because it evaporates in the tip of pump where it is exposed to air. Alternatively more creamy ones take a little longer to dry up there but are a pain in the ass to apply and you have to wait longer to get them dry and often do not permeate the skin as well.

    I do remember having to submerge a topical solution more than once in boiling water, man does that blow when it comes down to that.

    I haven't had any issues with my FormaSurge bottle at all. I shake, pump, rub in and stay dry.
    If my direct and cynical approach bothers you, just ignore it. I'm just saying what you need to hear ;).

    I haven't used FormaSurge, still finishing up another form product I had a few bottle of. However, I have had that issue with other transdermals including the one I am currently finishing up.

    Also at 2 doses a day, and or even moreso with higher doses I can't imagine it drying / clogging up as much as someone only using it once a day. When you use more at once that is more coming out that can carry the stuff trying to dry out of the nozzle. Using twice a day well that is pretty obvious that less time between pumps means less time to dry.

    formestane seems to go out of solution easier/faster than most other transdermals i have used...with this being said when i 1st got my bottle of formasurge the initial pumps had white flakes in it-a sure indication that it had at least partially came out of solution. i just boiled some water in a pan, turned off heat and put the bottle in the hot water for 3-5 minutes. i only had to do this once, shaking before using was all that was needed after that....i remember mentioning this in my log!!!

    if you are having clogging issues the white flakes[or small chunks] are most likely the problem!!!

    formasurge is a great product, imo....enjoy!!!

    I lifted yesterday though not heavy or anything like that. Also, I did some light lat pulldowns with no pain. I'd say that is a huge victory plus no need for any pain medicine or nSAIDs anymore.
