When to apply Androgel
Jul 12, 2002

On the information sheet that comes with Androgel, it says to apply Androgel peferably in the morning. Can you comment on why it might not be best to apply in late afternoon, for example?

Response from Dr. Henry

Although that is the usual practice the why of that eludes me. It may have to do with the fact that most people take showers in the AM and that whatever your usual pattern is some adjustment might be in order. In other words,if you shower in the evening then apply it after that. If anyone else has a fim answer --please post! KH

less than perfect smile-not acceptable!
