What number of mg of androderm testosterone make one cc?

What number of mg of androderm testosterone make one cc?

Wrong question 2 ask: Androderm (testosterone) is a patch available in 2 dose sizes, 2mg/24h & 4mg/24h. It's applied once daily. There is no way to make it a liquid form or concentrate that is measured in cc (mL). Testosterone cypionate & T enanthate are injectable forms which come in 2 concentrations, 100mg/mL & 200mg/mL. Depending upon who you ask, starting dose can be up to 1mg/kg/wk. I'm not aware of a good conversion calculator. ...Read more

Took Ambien (zolpidem) many years ago & slept well, woke up feeling great. W/generic one now I wake up many x (my CC.) Generics can be that different from name?

Took Ambien (zolpidem) many years ago & slept well, woke up feeling great. W/generic one now I wake up many x (my CC.) Generics can be that different from name?

Discrepancy subtle: Generics and Trade names should have about the same amount of active agent in them. That much of a difference in response as you've reported is unusual. You can build tolerance to Ambien (zolpidem) which can account for your situation. Also, consider re-evaluating your sleep hygiene practices and have your primary care doctor help you with that. ...Read more

Breasts extremely dense. Microcalcifications in upper outer quadrant left breast the posterior one third are loosely grouped on the cc. How bad is this?

Breasts extremely dense. Microcalcifications in upper outer quadrant left breast the posterior one third are loosely grouped on the cc. How bad is this?

Hard to say: Calcification almost always causes patient confusion and concern. You are not alone. However, without further description about the appearance of the calcs, distribution, absence or presence of other calcs, etc, its impossible to give you a fair interpretation. In general, management is either 6 month follow up or stereotactic biopsy. I recommend talking to the radiologist who read the mammogram. ...Read more

I shot 1 cc of 250 sus (roids) into my shoulder it swelled up really bad been a week drained a lot of the puss out. Wat else do I need to do?

Abscess: See pcp; may need antibiotics to clear up infxn to prevent spread to joint. Warm compresses will help draw infxn to head so it will drain better. Reconsider using anabolic steroids. If using multi-dose vial, bottle may be contaminated. ...Read more

I am injecting 1 cc of testosterone every two weeks and am 53 is it safe?

I am injecting 1 cc of testosterone every two weeks and am 53 is it safe?

Testosterone: If symptoms of low testosterone are present, low t documented by the proper labs w/ age factored in, reversible cause not found, other possibilities ruled out, & prescribed by your doctor who is monitoring you at regular intervals with labs, then its most likely safe. Daily topical formulations may be more effective than injections as they aim to mimic the normal male physiology. ...Read more

I take 1cc testosterone per wk. My new doc says I've been waisting it that I should take 1 cc 1x every 2 wk with out taking lab wrk is he correct?

I take 1cc testosterone per wk. My new doc says I've been waisting it that I should take 1 cc 1x every 2 wk with out taking lab wrk is he correct?

Testosterone: Testosterone taken as an injection is a particularly poor way to supplement due to the extreme highs and lows in levels. Topical or pellet implants are much more physiologic. Anyone taking testosterone should have periodic testing of levels and liver and blood count testing. ...Read more

Endocrinologist Hi. I am on 2 iu's of Human Growth Hormone along with 1 cc weekly of Testosterone. How long are they in my system after stopping?

Endocrinologist Hi. I am on 2 iu's of Human Growth Hormone along with 1 cc weekly of Testosterone. How long are they in my system after stopping?

They differ: Hi. The growth hormone is not a depot preparation, and it's gone in 24 hours. The testosterone is a depot preparation and has a half-life of about a week. Using the 5 half-life rule of thumb, after about 5 weeks, you'll be running on fumes. ...Read more

Grrrrr my mom just called and said she bleed 1, 000 cc from her anus. Remember she still in hosp w/pulmonary hypertension and etc.... Could bleeding be due to her cumodin? Cumodin level is 2.5. Or a GI bleed? Or is this more serious?

Grrrrr my mom just called and said she bleed 1, 000 cc from her anus. Remember she still in hosp w/pulmonary hypertension and etc.... Could bleeding be due to her cumodin? Cumodin level is 2.5. Or a GI bleed? Or is this more serious?

Yes and yes: 1000 ml of rectal bleeding is significant and being anticoagulated on Coumadin (warfarin) makes bleeding more likely and often more severe. I suspect this will be addressed during her hospitalization. Potential causes include ulcers, diverticulosis, angioectasia, tumors, and possibly hemorrhoids. ...Read more

I am retaining 350 to 550 CC's after voiding. Is that abnormal?

I am retaining 350 to 550 CC's after voiding. Is that abnormal?

Yes, get checked out: The normal bladder empties completely with urination. Urine can be retained in the bladder for two main reasons. Obstruction in the pathway from the bladder to the outside, usually caused by prostate gland enlargement or scar tissue (structure) in the urethra. Damage of the nerves to the bladder, or the bladder muscle fibers, decrease the bladder's ability to expel urine. You are retaining a lot. ...Read more

Helo Dr. My dad age is 65, he has grade 2 prostatemegaly (volume 40 cc). Kindly suggest.

--Fickle Prostate--: If he truly has Grade 2 prostatomegaly [and you didn't receive that information in a vision after taking hallucinogenic mushrooms], then some fine young Urologist [hopefully, with a valid license] has taken tissue and is well-equipped to discuss the Gleason Scale (2-10) with you, including the fact that 30cc is the upper limit considered "normal." As for symptoms-that's another story!!! ...Read more

Is a 70 cc enlarged ovary at risk for torsion?

Is a 70 cc enlarged ovary at risk for torsion?

Unnecessary...: The odd to develop ovarian torsion hinges on how its anatomical fixation to its supposedly location and relation of the surrounding just like that for an testis to develop testicular torsion. Physically, a 70-cc ovary may affect its supposed orientation and impair its fixation; together, the odd to have ovarian torsion may enhance but still low. So, just wait and see to copy with life reality... ...Read more

Not a concern: If this cyst is asymptomatic there is little to worry about. Volume measurements of the ovary are very imprecise and this is not a significant difference. The important observation is that the cyst has remained the same. ...Read more
