Androgel Questions
      10/17/07 02:55 PM

Howdy -

Please forgive me if there's a different section of the board where I should be posting this question. I'm new.

I was diagnosed 2 weeks ago. Probably exposed to HIV 15 months ago. My bloodwork came back CD4 608 and VL 13,000 which are good numbers apparently.

The only issue is my testosterone which is off the charts low. My doctor is suggesting androgel and I am wanting to know what the potential issues might be.

I've love to hear from anyone who's tried it or decided against it and what your experience was. Are there any long-term issues I should be careful of? Can I go off it?

Forgive me if my questions seem silly but this is all new to me. I've never been on long-term medication before (except for an antidepressant) and I've been encouraged to ask folks on here for their input.
