what do you mean by tubes? I have some of the packets left and they make a pump. The packets don't have a bad odor-IMO but everybody is diffrent. I get the Test depot now but I did get a few boxes of the gel as well and like I said it is worthless if you have to pay for it or you are not using a injectable as well. I do like using it pre-workout. androgel is just transdermal Test base it works fast! I use 3 packets pre-workout and that is like 30mg of suspension a day. It does give a nice little pre-workout boost. It works better for people who are lean. If i didn't get it for pretty much free i wouldn't mess with it but it is pharmaceutical Testosterone. My doctor gave me both even though I said I just wanted the Test depot but you have to play the doctors game. I didn't want to argue with him. I just recently have been able to get prescription Test depot. It really isn't a bad idea to have both. I couldn't really tell him I have done multiple injections a week in the past. My doctor is under the assumption this is all new to me.
I got my andro gel about 4 years ago and it was in a box with something like 32-40 tubes in it. See image below. It did not smell but it was like rubbing jizz all over you. Then you put on a shirt and it stuck to you. A pain in the ass. Like I mentioned, my levels didn't change with it.
I go to a urologist for my hrt and he scripts me 1/2ml 2x a week. 10ml Watson cyp with 5 refills. I refill it every month on the day and they never have said a word. I have a nice stockpile.
