Androgel split dose

  1. Androgel split dose

    Androgel is usually applied once daily.
    I am using two packets daily, 10grams or 14 packets weekly.
    Or on average I am using one packet every 12 hours.
    I have a load of supply of Androgel in those packets.
    I would like to reduce my dose from 10grams daily to about 7 or 7.5grams
    That would be easy task with a pump, but I have 5gram packets.
    So if I use one packet every 16 hours that will be just about the same, on average.
    Problem is, that is a thight schedule, 16 hours on the dot.
    But I could do it if I relax this 16 hours requirement and add tolerance of +- 4 hours,
    another words sometimes it would be 12 hours other times 20 hours from the last application.
    But on the weekly average it would be the desired 16 hours.

    Am I going to have too large variations in my T level?
    In trying to answer that question I looked at Figure 1 and 2 of
    In figure 2 I am looking at the 180 days line since I am taking Androgel for years.

    My answer is that it should be acceptabe way of lowering my dose, do I hear Yes?

  2. The first question in my mind is why do you want to reduce your dosage?

    On 2 packs of Androgel (long term) I am testing
    Total T=932 (241-827)
    FreeT=36.5 ((6.6-18.1) for my age, should realy have (18-26.6)
    DHT 226 (30-85)

  4. Why not just use 7.5 grams each morning? Use a syringe(not with a needle), open up 2 packets, measure out 7.5 grams and use that, and keep the half a packet airtight for the next day.

  5. I agree.

    I was in the same boat on the androderm patch. T was at 1009 don't remember the Free but it was up also. I had about 1 month of patchs left but my D.O. swithched me to the pump and reduced me to 1 pump (1.25 mg) ED til next labs. Then may up the dosage at that time or may finish the patchs...have to wait and see.
