AndroGel

What If I Take an Overdose?

It is not known what exactly to expect from an overdose with AndroGel. In one case, an individual who used too much injectable testosterone experienced a stroke, probably related to extremely high testosterone levels. It is not known if this is possible or even likely with AndroGel.
 
If you happen to use too much, seek immediate medical attention.

How Should AndroGel Be Stored?

This medication should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Keep AndroGel and all other medications out of the reach of children and pets. Make sure to dispose of the used packets and the pump in a way that prevents accidental use by children or pets.
 

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

If you happen to realize you skipped a dose shortly after the missed dose, it is fine to either skip the missed dose or take the missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if you are more than a few hours late for your dose, it is best just to skip it and continue with your regular schedule tomorrow.
