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?
