I was on it for a while, and once I got my normals up to normal they've staid there.  I've been off it now for three years.

(however, I'll add that I did injection testosterone for four years previous to the gel so not sure how much that contributed...)

My testosterone was 200 and my doctor put me on it 3 months ago. I was always fatigued and tired and my doctor thinks this might have contributed partially to it. I cant say that I have noticed much of a difference being on it but I guess if it increases my levels then it is working.I go in tomorrow to see my new numbers so we shall see.
