Double Dose of Androgel
Jan 7, 2004

Thanks for all the great advice. I'm a 38-yo man who has been on 1 Androgel for about a year now with excellent results. I have a little bit of a surplus (2 weeks) and wondered if there would be any noticable effect to double dosing for those 2 weeks. Should I spread the application to twice a day or double my morning dose? Thanks for your advice.

Response from Dr. Wohl

I am assuming your testosterone is within normal with the dose your are using and that you are getting benefits. Why risk sid effects by increasing the dose if you do not need to? Polycythemia, high blood pressure, acne, hair loss and others can be a problem at a higher dose. Nelson
