Is it okay to take androderm and testosterone?

Not really. Androderm is just a brand of testosterone so if you take/apply enough androderm, you shouldn't need add'l t. However, if you don't like clinical effect/benefit (or aren't receiving any), check your t level. You might need an add'l patch! if you have to apply too many patches, you might want to consider another form of t replacement. Good luck!
No. Androderm is testosterone. You should check with your doctor to make sure you're not getting too much.
