Agreed. Androgel is garbage.
When my Doc first put me on Cyp, 200mg a week, I gained a noticeable amount of size. Granted I'm a smaller guy anyway, but when it came time for blood work after 3 months, my levels were sky high, 1400, and I had put on roughly 15lbs. My training didn't change, eating did a bit, hungrier due to the increase in T, so i was pretty happy about that. I've been maintaining what I "gained" for 2 years now at 200mg a week. So yes, it can work for you, at least it did for me.
