I'm taking this Natrol DHEA. Has anyone heard of it whether it is good or not? My doctor recommended it after I had the pellet put into my buttocks - it hurt like heck for three weeks and left a major scar and my doctor called me a "baby" when I said ouch that hurts and I am anything but a baby......and vowed never to do that again and so my other doctor switched it to the over-the-counter drug. He indicated that the only other way was to have a personalized cream made up for me which would have been more costly. I did test my levels in three months and they were in a normal range. I'm also doing the vivelle dot transdermal patch 0.075 mg. per patch changed every 7 days and again that was within a normal range on my last blood test.

Hi Sally1:

I am taking a compounded Testosterone cream once a day and have been pretty happy with it. I would recommend you look into using the compounded cream vs. the pellets. The only thing you need to be cautious about with the cream is not to take too much but they give you a tiny measuring spoon so you can make sure you are getting a measured amount.

Hi Sally -- I know we are working on getting you some answers. I am sorry you went through that with your doctor. I give you credit for doing that in the first place. It sounds like something that would hurt!
