Androgel and your body
100% agree I had a very similar reaction to Androgel became ill after 15 days of use every single side effect listed I ended up having, headaches, shortness of breath, dark yellow urine, insomnia, increased depression, and so on. I stopped taking Androgel and within 3 days I felt much better. The Doctor has now put me on the patch to try....it,s the first day so I don't know yet but I felt I had to respond to this do to the similarities due to the use of Androgel.
