Develop goals with your doctor

You may not see any difference soon after you start your treatment, but that's okay. Every guy is different. So it may take time for your testosterone levels to increase. It's important to stick with your daily application, as testosterone levels could fall back to their previous levels in just 2 to 3 days if you stop.

Your doctor will have a clear dosing plan for you. The recommended starting dose of AndroGel 1.62% is 40.5 mg. However, it's important to schedule follow-ups to have your testosterone levels checked after starting treatment. It is typical to go in 14 and 28 days after you begin using AndroGel 1.62%.You can also expect follow-up visits three to six months later. Then it can become part of your regular annual check-up appointments.
