Androgel dose in compounded testosterone?

Ask Larry:
Your Question: I have a patient using 4 pumps of Androgel 1.62 daily. What dose per gram would equal that in compounded form? 80mg from androgel seems like a lot.
Larry’s Response: The Androgel 1.62 is Testosterone USP 1.62%, which is 16.2 mg in each 1 mililiter (ml). The pump device delivers approximately 1.25 ml in each activation. Four pumps would be 5 ml of gel (a teaspoonful of gel is a lot to spread around), delivering 81 mg. That is certainly a lot of testosterone. The company mentions two pumps as a staring dose, 40.5 mg. Still, a fairly good dose of testosterone.
