Default Anyone have experience with Axiron????

Hey guys,

Just wondering if anyone has had any experiences with Axiron. …Good/bad??

I’ve been on Testim for about 4 months now with no problems but recently I’ve been starting to get acne on my upper arms that’s starting to get a little worse. I don’t have acne anywhere else, just the areas where I’ve been applying the Testim. I’ve been avoiding applying on my upper arms and just been applying to chest for the past couple of days.

I’m not sure if I should just stick to what I have or should I try this out and see what happens. The only thing that appeals to me is the application part and it’s cheaper. Testim would be $60 a month and Axiron would be $25. I tried looking up some information on it but there really isn’t that much out there.

The only drawback from what I’ve read is that since your applying in the underarm area there is less surface area for the body to absorb compared to applying to the upper chest and arms. You can only put on so much in an area to the point where your body is not able to absorb all of it. Axiron is 2% Testosterone strength compared Testim which is 1%. Would that make up the difference??

What do you guys think about it?

I don't think the acne is a result of the topical application, it's probably more a result of the increased systemic T/DHT.

When you got acne as a teenager did you get it on the arms as well or is this a new thing?

That's what I was afraid of but as a teenager I got really bad facial acne from middle school all the way to my senior year until I started on retin a micro, clindamycin, and an antibiotic. Since then I haven't had issues.

Body wise I hardly got any acne besides the occasional few on my arms or back. Sometimes in small clusters but they would go away. I would say this is a new thing

what's up, I never took axiron, but I recently looked into it because my insurance is changing and I wanted to consider all of my covered options. I came across a site of people reviewing it and from what I saw, people said they thought the idea of the applicator was clutch, but it was much sloppier and watery then they anticipated. In the overall ratings, it didn't do as well as testim or androgel. With that said, I have absolutely no experience with axiron, but I'm interested in the thread, just wanted to try to help. Maybe google axiron reviews and see if that helps.

Im taking it now. 1 pump under each arm with 500ius hcg/day. I feel fantastic and have great libido. I get my first labs done on the 15th. You do have to be careful putting it on or you can loose some of the solution. Ive used both androgel and testim. I hated testim.

I'm on week 3 of Axiron. It just really kicked in and it's GREAT!
Libido is incredible! Got my energy back, and feel great! Your doctor can give you a coupon for the first pump free, and the company sends out a $25 copay card (even if you have insurance) to pay for it for a year. Well worth it!

I've been using Axiron for only a week and a half (60mg) and can't believe how quickly I am responding to HRT. My libido has improved and my ED problem is starting to disappear. If this stuff doesn't really kick-in until after 2-3 weeks, I am excited about the prospect of returning to normal sexual activities.

The application process involves a learning curve. The solution is watery and easy to spill. Application takes some caution and patience. But from what I have read, Axiron is better absorbed because of the nature of the solution and application location.

Acne is a common side effect of ALL HRT, so I don't think changing brands will reduce the acne...but I'm not a medical professional.

The problem I am having is sensitivity to the high alcohol content of the solution. I am developing rashes in some areas of my underarms. However, I am willing to put up with some discomfort there in exchange for better sexual performance.

I got in on the Lilly "Promise Program" free 30-day with prescription and $25 refills for one year. What it will cost after that I don't know. I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.

Did any of you that are having good results have issues w/transdermals like Androgel etc?? When I say issues I mean as in they didn't work or absorb?
