Started taking 5mg a day.How long before I see any effects eispeicialy in the libido dept.The viagarasialis is a hit and miss thing.Tried the triple-P injections and they were a waste of time.I often times have errections in the morning but that is not when I need them
I am also taking truvada and keltra

If low testerone levels are a key part of the problem with libido/impotence then usually improvement is seen (if it occurs) within several weeks of returning testosterone levels to mid range normla or higher (with Androgel). If that doesn't help then an evaluation by an urologist or sex therapist might be worthwhile. truvada/Kaletra is not particularly associated with impotence but there could be an idiosyncratic response. Some patients have a strong pychological component to sexual function difficulties often exacerbated by HIV+ status and worry about self-image/transmission. KH
