Androderm is a patch, lowest dose is 2.5mg. Since I'm within the "acceptable range" albeit on the lower end, the prescribed dose for me seems to bump me up a bit to feel less anxiety, and dare I say, start to actually feel connected to people.

I feel closer to my dog now. It's very weird.

In any case, the patch releases a constant flow of testosterone through the skin. Its much more expensive than the shot, and many insurance companies won't approve of the patch because of the cost. The shot works, but it creates a big up/down because when you get the shot, its a huge burst and then dwindles. The patch is recommended.

I'm becoming immensely grateful for my insurance plan, and thus my job that has my insurance plan, and the doctor I have who is willing to work with me to make this work for me and improve the quality of my life.

After taking my first patch 5 hours ago, I feel so much better already. And reading all the encouraging messages and PM's from all of you is just fucking awesome.

I'm so glad I found this place.

Thanks to all of you for sticking by my insanity, and encouraging me to keep pushing forward.

Forever grateful
