about to get shafted
by my ins company.
they were ok with the 7.5 grams a day of the gel, which is 3 bottles a month. Now they only want to approve one bottle a month.
seriously.... why do they have to be such worthless piles of crap?
I have enough to last me for a few more weeks and my doc is going to try to get it authorized tomorrow, but I think she will be receptive to shots as I already gave her copies of Dr. John's documents regarding TRT and HCG.

I feel your pain. When I first got prescribed AndroGel my insurance covered it. When I went for my third months supply I found out that I had maxed out my annual prescription coverage. I think cash price for AndroGel was about $250 for a 30day supply at 5mg/d I was at 7.5 and getting ready to be moved to 10. I simply could not go that route.
Here's some data:

Is Androgel that much better than what you can get from a compounding pharmacy for $25-50 a month though?

I had a Androgel salesmen sitting in my doctors office, he (my doctor) was brain washed. But the more Androgel scripts he wrote the better salesman liked him.
It is about big pharma.

assuming large dose of 150mg/week
you do not have to worry if insurance covers it or no.
$60 vial of 10000iu Novarel will last 90 days
$60 vial liquidex will probably be good for a year

Seriously, you can change pharmacy if you wish, unless you are constrained by your good doctor and do not want to rock the boat, always possibility.
What is 150mg/mL, are you in USA or expatriate somewhere around the world?
When I was in Brazil, 1979-1980, at least I did not had to worry about testosterone then, had plenty of it.
You are on rather large dose, hopefully you have high enough SHBG to support it.
I am paying $150 for my genuine Depo-T.
Reason I am not using compounded T is because it have different oil.
I already know that it takes me four minutes to draw 30 units to my 31ga syringe.
Not sure about viscosity of sesame seed oil.
Wish somebody try and post results.
I get my Novarel at local pharmacy, DrugFair.
There are much better deals if one can buy from Sam's Club.

Jeff go somewhere else then. rxusa will give you novarel for 53 i think a bottle. just have your script sent there and they mail anywhere. samsclub pharmacy has cheap novarel too.

150mg/mL of test cypionate a week (in olive oil). My total t is between 850 and 900.

"this one told me that test enanthate would be better then cypionate because I would only have to do 1 shot a week instead of 2. "
Seriously, were do some of these Docs get this stuff?
I need to start up a thread of off the wall quotes of hilarity that some Docs say.

my doc already said the shots will be a possibility... its in review at the insurance company.
she will work with me using other methods if this falls through.
08-09-2007, 05:23 PM
how can I talk to my doc about a compounding pharmacy and what are good ones to work with?

Think of it as cost of doing bussiness.
You need testosterone, you got testosterone.
Few $$$ does not make big difference.
If you get better doctor go for it, but do not burn bridges.
In the mean time, learn what works and do routine that works for you (when you have ingredients at hand).

Hunter, I am fully aware of that.... It just gets old when it keeps happening.
