Customer Question

I've been diagnosed with very low testosterone (I'm 83) and have had Testim prescribed. My problem is I can't afford to buy the stuff at nearly$300 per month. I need it for general well being, weight loss and so forth rather than hope for sexual rejuvenation. My question is are there alternative ways to boost testosterone? I've seen a lot of advertisements for various supplements, am sure many are scams, but there has to be something that works! What can you recommend?

Andro gel is also prohibitively expensive as I don't currently have prescription insurance, still about $300 per month. the following is affordable, however. Is it a good substitute for Androgel and Testrim?Depo-Testosterone Coupon - Depo-Testosterone 10ml of 100mg/ml vial
Testosterone Cypionate
Testosterone cypionate (Depo-Testosterone) is an inexpensive drug used to support normal male development such as muscle growth, facial hair, and deep voice. This drug is more popular than comparable drugs. It is available in generic and brand versions. It is not covered by most Medicare and insurance plans, but manufacturer and pharmacy coupons can help offset the cost. Compare androgens.

Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.

Testosterone injection generates supranormal testosterone levels shortly after 2 to 3 weekly injection and then testosterone levels decline very rapidly,becoming subnormal in the days before the next injection.

Hope this helps.
