I've been put on HRT due to hypogonadism and take 5g of androgel daily.
""A daily application of AndroGel 5 g, 7.5 g, or 10 g contains 50 mg, 75 mg, or 100 mg of testosterone, respectively, to be applied daily to the skin's surface. Approximately 10% of the applied testosterone dose is absorbed across skin of average permeability during a 24-hour period. ""
So im getting roughly 5 mg of test daily. I have been doing some research and have found that DMSO increases the skins permability which might allow up to 30% absorbtion of the gel instead of the average 10%. I was wondering how I would incorporate the DMSO. I have found 99% DMSO that is in a roll on dispenser and was wondering if I could topically apply the roll on DMSO and then apply my androgel to the same areas resulting in better absorbtion of androgel. For any chemistry inclined people here these are the ingredients in androgel:
""The active pharmacologic ingredient in AndroGel is testosterone. Testosterone USP is a white to practically white crystalline powder chemically described as 17-beta hydroxyandrost-4-en-3-one.
Inactive ingredients in AndroGel are ethanol 67.0%, purified water, sodium hydroxide, carbomer 980 and isopropyl myristate; these ingredients are not pharmacologically active.""
