I started the Adro – Gel just 5 months ago because of opioid-induced low testosterone levels, and its working great. It is a little expensive but I think this works best me me because it works for me within 24 hours after application. I cant come in contact with certain people after application, the instructions come with the medication. I noticed a influx in energy levels just after the first bottle, also increased libido. My primary care doctor asked if I wanted the testosterone injections and I thought that was to much to soon. Not to mention more pain I don’t need. Then he told me about the pellets and how they implant them, I told him your freaking me out. Then he said the Andro Gel is a good option so I went with that. When he explained implanting testosterone pellets in my trunk I almost ran for the front door.
In addition, more generics are becoming available at a low price. To provide cost comparison, the AWP for Depot Testosterone is roughly $122. The AWP for Westward generic Test Cyp 200mg/ml 10ml is roughly $112. Only a $10 difference between the brand and generic. The patient price for compounded Testosterone Cypionate 200mg/ml 10ml is typically around $50, give or take depending on the particular compounders volume and overhead. The wholesale price (what Walgreens pays for it before selling to you) of Depot Testosterone 200mg/ml 10ml is $46 while wholesale for Westward is roughly $41. You can see by this comparison that the gap in price between brand and generic is closing, while the cost to compound this same medication is increasing due to continued layers of legislation designed to cripple the compounding industry .
Microorganisms could potentially be introduced during reformulation of non-sterile products. For example, if Candida albicans is inadvertently introduced into freshly prepared multi-dose citric acid solutions that are to be used orally for cough reflex testing, immunocompromised individuals could become infected. 11 Including a preservative is the most common approach for non-sterile water-based compounded products, especially when storage for more than a few days is required. Many factors affect the choice of preservative, such as dosage form and pH of the product. Refrigerated storage can help delay deterioration.
