 5  LowĒTĒ + sluggish metabolism Before Androderm, I had multiple headaches weekly and havenít had one since starting it two years ago. I was on opiates and Imitrex and havenít taken either in two years thanks to getting my hormones squared away. It has positively change my life. Should I dare mention that the wife and I are intimate practically every day, SHE LOVES IT. Iím no longer a depressed butt-dragger and have lost weight and toned up my body. Outside of my pee stream being a little slower, no real bad side effects. Iím always in a good mood and hope this perfect Rx matchup never ends. Thanks Respectfully, Steve G. Thanks Itís pricey though l, my Rx insurance overs all but $50.00 each Rx/ month M 51 2 years

 4  Low Testosterone Itchy patches and discolored skin The patch works but at a price. My first month of usage was great. I did not have any problems. Starting on the second month I started itching and getting a rash where the medicine touches my skin. I use cortizone cream to deal with the itching and I will sometimes take a day off from the patch to let my skin recover. M 43 2 months

 3  Low T. Itchy red whelps on the abdomen, but started getting worse with even rotating it from there to upper arms, back didn't work out to good patches would fall of from there, but then going back to abdomen rashes and itching started getting worse. Legs and arms for some reason didn't seem to get the whelps like the abdomen does, haven't figured that one out yet. Started off with Fortesta which really seemed to make me feel better, but only applications on the inner thigh everyday with two pumps each and I have small thighs but it also caused a rash and itching and burning, moved to the self injection, but after about the 8th shot only be one every two weeks decided that wasn't for me. M 46 50 days

 5  low T, Absolutely no ill effects, EXCEPT ugly, itchy WELTS that last around 3 weeks (!) at application sites. Looks like paint-ball hits. Endocrinologist and Watson hotline recommend hydrocortisone and Trimincolone, no help whatsoever. Will discontinue and switch to Androgel, too bad. Works as advertised though... Only regret waiting so long to go in for a physical, blood work caused MD to refer me to endocrinologist, who prescribed the Androderm. Within a week, I felt better, day and night difference. Restored sex drive, much better mood, better sleep/no more insomnia (not sure how that works), increased strength, better mental focus / feel smarter / improved memory. See a doctor today if you feel low T, don't wait like I did. M 42 3 months

 3  Low T My body is just weird anyway dealing with medications. I tried a 30mg under arm application right off the bat and obviously that was overdose. Felt like I was having a heart attack. So I changed to 2mg Androderm patch. Energy has increased. Mood has improved in less than a month. The only problem is HORRIFIC hot flashes! About every 15 minutes and they last anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes. It's like an internal blast furnace has been turned on. I just have to walk into a deep freezer somewhere and cool off . If this keep up into summer - forget it! Sad because it is working and I do feel better overall. I have total sympathy for ladies in menopause! It completely rules your life. You absolutely have to stop everything you are doing and fan yourself or use cold compresses on chest and neck. Stand in front of an open refrigerator. Turn the AC as low as it will go in the middle of winter. It's horrible! I haven't seen anybody else complain of it so I'm know I'm just weir It does make the skin itch where the patch is but only mildly. Would be better if the adhesive were revamped to a more hypoallergenic formula. Itching seems to be a complaint of everybody on here. M 46 30 days

 5  Low testosterone (Hypogonadism) Better mood, better sex drive, clearer mind. However, my skin is turning red in any spot that has received the patch twice within 2 weeks so need to rotate. Must use a scrub brush to remove the patch glue outline in the shower. Sleep cycle improved. Terrified that I would have to discontinue this treatment because of the redness caused by the patches. I feel 100% better than I used to feel and my sleeping is extremely regular, including waking up fully rested on my own without needing an alarm clock. M 41 30 days

 2  low testosterone--constantly tired Immediately after the first patch I have been extremely fatigued all the time. I am giving it a full month and after that if I am not more energetic, I'm stopping it. I went on it because of being constantly tired and this is signficantly worse! M 53 21 days

ANDRODERM  (TESTOSTERONE):  This medicated patch contains testosterone. It is used for hormone replacement in men who are not able to produce enough testosterone (e.g., hypogonadism). This medication is absorbed through the skin, enters your bloodstream, and helps your body reach normal testosterone levels. Testosterone helps the body to develop and maintain the male sexual characteristics (masculinity), such as a deep voice and body hair. It also helps to maintain muscle and prevent bone loss, and is necessary for natural sexual ability/desire. This drug should not be used by women.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
