Axiron vs Testim
| Ed
Axiron is great stuff, after tests showed I had low T I was prescribed 60 ml of Axiron once a day noticed the strongest effects between the 2nd and 3rd week, it was amazing I was doing hard gym work outs and playing racket ball like I was in my twenty's again, and even if i felt wrecked from my workout at bed time I would feel fully recovered by the next day. Another great effect was very little if any soreness after workouts. I had more determination and drive and would make it to the gym every day, as well as just getting more of every thing done. After my free 30 day trial was up I went to get my prescription refilled and found my Insurance would not cover it, it covers Testim instead. They put me on 1 tube a day and my levels still showed low, now they upped it to 2 tubes a day 100ml and I am lucky if I make it to the gym once a week now, lower energy levels and drive. After working out soreness and takes me a couple days to recover now. I would not recommend Testim to any one, but Axiron is great I highly recommend it if you have low Testosterone.
