AndroGel 1% is topical gel, used in the daily treatment of testosterone replacement therapy. It is specifically designed to bring T levels to a normal level, and maintain them at that peak. With this replacement, symptoms should subside or improve. It is used to treat males who have little to no testosterone.
AndroGel 1% contains testosterone, and is absorbed into your skin, helping to bring T levels back to normal. It does not cure low levels of testosterone, but instead is used to daily to treat symptoms.
Androgel 1% may help to correct erectile dysfunction and increases libido.
Ask your doctor what dosage is right for you but typically is applied to the shoulders, upper arms, and stomach area. Those using AndroGel are advised to NOT use it on the following areas: penis, scrotum, chest or back.
For patients to lower the chances of AndroGel being accidentally transferred, they should apply it to an area that will be covered with clothing once the area is dry. After applying the gel, hands should be completely washed immediately.
