If you experience any of these symptoms, you should stop your medication and see your healthcare professional immediately.
Inform your healthcare professional if:

Testosterone may be transferred to another person during close and prolonged skin contact with the gel application area if no precaution is taken.
Your partner may show signs of increased testosterone such as more hair growth on the face and body, a deepened voice and changes in the menstrual cycle if contact is made multiple times or for prolonged period. Do seek medical advice from your doctor if this happens.
Inform your doctor if you are taking oral anticoagulant (e.g. warfarin), corticosteroids, insulin or other anti-diabetic medications.
If you forget to apply a dose, skip the missed dose and do not apply a double dose to make it up for the forgotten individual dose.
