I was reading through the previous questions and I see that it is pretty common to have irritated skin after use with the gel. My first question is, I use 4 pumps every morning can I apply lotion to the application site after the gel dries? Or maybe a few hours after? Another question I have is, my prescription says to apply in the morning. But I work 3rd shift. Is it absorbed better in the AM hours? Or can I apply it after I have awoke around 10 which is my "morning" is there really any difference between application times? I talked to my pharmacist as well as my doctors NP but neither were able to give me a clear defined answer.

Hello, Jay! How are you?

The reason it's stated to apply in the morning, is because it's supposed to be done after showering or bathing. Thus, you could most likely do it any time, after you've showered.

The FDA prescribing instructions also say that if you use something to treat the skin irritation caused by the gel, avoid using an ointment, because it's heavy and may block absorption of the testosterone, but creams and gels are fine.

However, it's best not to use anything, until 2 to 5 hours, after you have applied it.

Typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability.

I'm just quoting what I found in the prescribing information, so please make sure your doctor approves of you making any changes. I'm female, so I've never used this, personally. LOL :-)

Is there anything else I can help with?
