So I was using 200 mg/gm compounded cream from Empower, which is HRT base, for almost 3 years before I switched to Medquest Pharmacy to try the Atrevis Base. I have heard about increased absorption from Atrevis base, but damn! I was using 3 clicks twice daily of Empower’s HRT base and never got over 800 ng/dl total T and 21 free T. Two consecutive blood tests now showing >1500 total T and mid-upper 30’s free T on 2 clicks twice daily of Atrevis base. I will be lowering dose to 2 clicks am and 1 click pm now. Before someone assumes they are a poor absorber of the compounded cream, try the Atrevis base.
