I've been on Androgel for a couple of years (although I have done cypionate IM injections also), but as my health insurance is changing to a HSa and androgel is ridiculously expensive, I'm switching back to injections. Also my doctor is out of network so I'm switching that aspect of my therapy as well.
So I saw a new doc today, and he says that before he can get me back on cyopinate injections, I need to cold turkey the Androgel (which has my number hovering in the 800 to 1000 range) and come back and see him in a month to see where my numbers are naturally. I really am not enjoying the idea of letting my numbers drop back down and go through that living hell again. I've been making sick gains in the gym lately also, so I also have that to worry about.
Is this a normal thing? Do I really have to drop my numbers back down just to get a script for medicine?
By the way, my numbers are out of whack naturally due to a bilateral varicocele.
