Wide range . . .: Don't focus so much on "typical dosage range" but rather on whether you notice benefit w/o side effect. In addition, regular lab testing will insure that you don't have too much such that you increase risk for heart attack & stroke. In other words, T level etc is more important than dose.

Dosage range also depends upon form of TRT, whether creams/gels/lotions vs patches vs shots.
