I have been on Androgel for over a year. A few months ago, I was noticing that Androgel had rapid absorption and short duration of action. I felt edgy shortly after application and felt that I ran low about 4 hours later. My doc at the time wanted to double the dose but admitted that TRT was beyond his expertise.
I switched docs and was put on Testim. With Testim, I don't get the edgy rush I felt with Androgel but the duration is still only about 5 hours.
On Testim I'm cranky and I notice my memory is poor in the morning and later in the day. I only feel good for about 5 hours.
Has anyone had a similar experience where they just don't get the duration they need with the transdermals? I apply the product to my shoulders. Would a different spot be better? Is there anything else I could be doing?
T blood levels are below 180 at around 20 hours after TD application.
I can't seem to find a doc near me with much experience with TRT.
