Buy Androderm Answered by Carmen Slomer 6 months ago.
Last time I shopped online was on the Millets camping website. I bought a new sleeping bag, camping stove and fan heater (which was a life-saver). BQ: I went to watch the British Moto GP at Silverstone this weekend! Camped for 4 nights to watch the motorbike racing and wanted to be as comfortable as possible! It was a really cracking weekend if you're interested in that kind of thing. Answered by Heather Werts 6 months ago.
What do men prefer, androderm or testoderm?
Asked by Dong Wallwork 6 months ago.
Nod3991 I prefer the Androderm over the Testoderm, as i had to have almost all my scrotum removed, and the patch doesn't stay on. The Androdem patch can be placed on the upper arms, upper thigh, and abdomen area giving a wider variety of application. But it too has problems staying on in hot condition's, and create's a rash,or a almost burnt looking area where it has been applied, that is very itchy. So even though i hate the large needle, the injection has it's benefits. The gel would be great if it would work form me, like the cream. Hope this is of value. Good Luck!

How many mg of androderm testosterone make one cc?
Asked by Richard Pinneo 6 months ago.
There's no equivalency because mg is a measurement of mass and cc is a measurement of volume. There's no "volume" to an androderm patch in the usual sense. Each patch holds something like 9 mg of testosterone in an alcohol gel packed in a fancy membrane designed to release 4mg or so over the course of a day. If you're thinking about trying to extract that tiny amount from a patch and make it up into a shot or something, it's not worth your time or effort. Testosterone injections typically contain 200 mg dissolved in one cc of sterile oil (sesame I think). The testosterone also has to be in the form of an "ester" derived from a suitable organic acid like cypionic or ethanoic acid. Answered by Sonya Fortney 6 months ago.
When do you notice effects of androderm patch?
I have the 5 mg patches and was wondering when i would notice the effects...such as facial hair etc
Asked by Mikel Diloreto 6 months ago.
There should have been directions, instructions & explanations that came with the package. Didn't you even bother to read it? Go to AOL Search - type in - Androderm Patch - a page will pop up with all kinds of websites for you to read to get this information. Answered by Willard Bourgeois 6 months ago.
When I put the patch on, the bubble in the center is usually full. after 24 hours sometimes it is empfy (Ive absorbed all the andro) or sometimes its still full. Is it ok to open the patch after 24 hours and rub the remainder into my skin?

Androgel has been replaced in the US with a product called Testim. Answered by Chu Mickiewicz 6 months ago.
You might try switching to Androgel. This comes in packets and can be applied to a greater area of skin. It also comes in a pump bottle and it more reliable than a patch if you find that you patch is not always being absorbed after 24 hours. Answered by Solomon Tomer 6 months ago.
What is the typical testosterone increase rate when using testosterone patches (Androderm)?

A weeks ago, I was prescribed androderm (testosterone patches). Before this, my testosterone was at 275 (It should be twice that at least). I should mention that I’m a 25 year old male, in good shape. The reason that my testosterone levels dropped is because of the medication I was taking (suboxone). I am currently weaning off it at this time and I’m down to 12mg right now. The only question that I have is, how long does it take for my T level to go up, specifically? I already know it will take a week or two before I feel better, but I want to know where (approximately) will my levels be at after the first week, second week, 1st moth, 2nd moth, and so on. I UNDERSTAND that it’s different for everyone and it’s impossible to guess exactly where my levels will be. However, assuming that my body is taking in the testosterone as it should, and all goes well, ABOUT what would be the rate of testosterone increase after taking the patch? I understand that this is a hard question to answer, but I’m only looking for approximate guesses. For example, is it 5ng every week, or 100ng? Assuming my body chemistry works well with the therapy, will I be able to get up to 600? Answered by Warner Earl 6 months ago.
Read the package insert that came with your patch. They are required by law to have the most updated information including rates of absorption. Each person's body is different. You can't guess this. It may never get back to where you need to be. You may be on T patches forever. FYI 600ng/dl is the low end of the range. Normal males about your age should be on the upper end like 1200ng/dl. Answered by Brad Lanphear 6 months ago.
It depends on your metabolism and the dose rate of the patch. TRT typically goes by the 10% rule. 10% of the dose of the patch makes it into your blood stream. In about 4 - 6 weeks you should begin to see a base line measure of your new T level. Talk to your doctor about where the doctor feels you are best. At 26, he may want your T level a bit higher. You may also, based on your symptom feedback, want a different level. Remember to move the patch around to prevent really bad patch acne. You can also increase your Vit. A, D, and Zinc to stave off some of the acne from the increasing T-levels as well. Your doctor will take regular blood samples. It is best to have these drawn first thing in the morning. He will also test for cholesterol levels, prostate function, and either kidney of liver function (I can't remember which). When the doctor is ready, he can wean you off the patches and see if your body picks up the load again. When that happens, increase the amount of exercise you do to prevent or lessen some of the side effects and help kick start your testicles again. Answered by Phillip Psuik 6 months ago.
Suboxone Testosterone Answered by Mendy Mease 6 months ago.
I don't know but I would be interested to know what sort of side-effects you will experience. I read once that a group of teens who received extra testosterone got a lot of extra wet dreams. I myself experienced this recently after starting Kegel exercises for my PC muscle. I don't know how common that is when taking such supplements or doing those exercises but I'd like to know more.

Does Androderm cause protein cravings?
Asked by Darcey Bintz 6 months ago.
I can find nothing to prove or disprove this fact. But thinking logically, it sounds like they could be related. Men seem to be a meat eater more than the female. Also, when testing the drug, this may not have been a point to consider or document. You could ask your pharmacist. Answered by Belle Babyak 6 months ago.

Androderm Dosage Delivery?
Ah! DaddyRx's description explains why the instructions say to rotate patch placement, not repeating a spot for several days. Is it that the skin in that locality is supersaturated, so to speak, and not best able to accept more of the hormone from the patch?Things make so much more sense, instructions are easier...
Asked by Jasper Joyner 6 months ago.
The doctor wrote a prescription for me to wear 2 Androderm patches per day. Unfortunately for me, my HMO will only authorize one. And at $300 per month, I can't afford to buy the extras out of my own pocket. But I've been wondering. Of course I'll ask my doctor before doing anything. But it doesn't hurt to ask around, think and develop you thoughts before having the talk. The Androderm package says each patch contains 24.3 mg for delivery of 5 mg per day. Why is only 20% delivered? What happens to the other 80? Is it still in the patch, so that wearing it another day would deliver more? Is it still in the patch, but on the side away from contact so it can't get to your skin? Is it on the surface of your skin, but washed away in the shower before it enters the blood stream? I imagine my doctor will tell me that like all medications, it's only to be used as directed. But if he's willing to run the blood work to monitor the dosage, I wonder whether I could get my T levels where the doctor wants them by wearing the patch longer? Does anyone know of studies that might have been done? Answered by Porsche Miske 6 months ago.

Is it that the skin in that locality is supersaturated, so to speak, and not best able to accept more of the hormone from the patch? Things make so much more sense, instructions are easier to follow, when a person understands the mechanism behind the advice. Thanks for that. Answered by Darcie Mcdonnall 6 months ago.
There is more drug in the patch because it has to overcome a few obstacles before it can enter your blood stream. When you place the patch on your skin, the concentration of drug in the patch is higher than that in your skin. This difference is what allows the drug to migrate into the skin and eventually equilibrate. .....Patch <==> Skin... This process can take as much as 72 hours. And it acts like a reservoir after you remove the patch. There is another equilibrium forming and that is ...Skin <===> Blood In order for the medication to make it into the blood stream, there has to be an excess of drug in the patch. The whole process is quite complicated, but I hope this makes sense. Answered by Shaquana Peddicord 6 months ago.
