    Low energy despite high testosterone level
    Hello all,

    I was on androgel 1% sachets almost for 10 years may be even longer. My testosterone level was in the range of 500.
    I was feeling well and has plenty of energy.
    Then due to the insurance issue I got switched to generic for 3-4 months. My level dropped to 200.

    A fortunate break?
    Hi, folks. Can't say I'm glad to find myself posting here, but I'm certainly glad to have found this forum.
