Days to weeks: All testosterone replacement products get into your system pretty quickly so you should start noticing something shortly. With that said, it also depends upon how low you were to start and how large a dose/patch you're given/taking. In other words, there's less noticeable change going from b+ to a- as compared to moving from d- or even f to an strong b grade. But that's also dose dependent.

Within several days: Most men should notice the effect (benefit) of Androderm (or any other testosterone supplement) within a few days of starting the regimen, assuming they're taking the right dose to achieve an adequate level. I usually recommend rechecking levels 4 weeks after starting. Of course, my goal is clinical response, not just a number, but lab guides me in keeping patients safe & preventing side effects.

Not if you need it: If you need it it's good for you. Ask your doctor about the gel if you're having problems. For more: www.Peedoc.Com @thepeedoc.
