I am 41 and I recently moved to ny state. The wife got great insurance which started a process of getting a new doctor and check ups. Dr. Had me take labs and noticed my T level was 214. Sent me to urologist which tested me again and had 264. He put me on 25mg of clomid daily for 3 weeks and tested again, level is now 461. I stopped taking the clomid the day of the test because it made me very emotional and depressed. I told him this and he gave me two options, continue taking clomid 25mg every other day or try androgel 1.62 at 2 pumps a day.
Since I started this process my wife lost job and insurance. Androgel will be $400 a month and clomid about $30. Not sure what I should do if anything. Will my level stay put or would I have to keep taking clomid to keep it here. Could I try compounding, not sure how much this would cost. If I did compounding or gel, would I have to do this forever. But would I have to take clomid forever? I am not feeling any positive effects of increasing level. Should my level be higher than 461. Dr. Was aming for 500, but whos to say thats high enough for me?
Any advice would be helpful.
