and it looks like some interest here as well so here goes.I don’t post often anymore but I want to tell you about a very inexpensive sub for testosterone gels etc. As you all know they are expensive. Well, I found out through my urologist and my local pharmacy that there are several formulations for a generic cream. It is compounded and my pharmacist says the formula they use came from PCCA Prescription Compounding something I can’t remember the rest, to their member drug stores. It works as well or better than Androgel for me. I got the same blood levels with the same dosage.
They pack it in 5 cc syringes with a concentration of 5, 10, or 15 mg/dl. I was using 10 mg/dl androgel the generic gives me the same blood levels at the same concentration. This should be good news especially for you who don’t have insurance. I have medicare and my copay is $6.46. It costs about 46.00 without insurance.
Also some of you who have problems with Androgel’s irritation from the alcohol, there is none in this formula just a high quality hand cream.
and you only apply 1 cc. whatever the dosage. It is much more convenient, you don’t have to wait for that alcohol to dry. All that is necessary is just to rub the small amount of cream in.It’s 1cc.
If you want their name and address I will give it to anyone who wants it. They also take refills over the net for Leader Pharmacies. If you want to do mail order they told me they will with a prescription. Just needs to say “compounded testosterone cream” and 5,10,15 Mg/cc. Usually the same you are using in Androgel and generic tadalafil 20 mg. Should do blood levels in 30 days. If you Can’t Find a local pharmacy who belongs to PCCA then email me and I will give you mail order or email address information. Please note the web address above is for the Leader pharmacy association which my drug store belongs to it can lead you to a neighborhood pharmacy but it may or may not belong to PCCA so you will have to ask about that. However there are several formulas that different drug groups have formulated so you should be able to find it at a local pharmacy. Obviously the big Pharmacy companies don’t want you to know this since theirs goes for hundreds of dollars per month.
I participated in the clinical trials for Testoderm and the Testosterone Buccal tablet and have used Androgel. This generic gets as good blood levels as any of them and isn’t wet like Androgel doesn’t feel sticky like Testoderm and the Buccal tablet is a pain to keep in your mouth. One CC of cream I put half on each thigh on the inside which protects your wife and any children from exposure.
