Transdermal patches (adhesive patches placed on the skin) may also be used to deliver a steady dose through the skin and into the bloodstream. Testosterone-containing creams and gels that are applied daily to the skin are also available, but absorption is inefficient (roughly 10%, varying between individuals) and these treatments tend to be more expensive. Individuals who are especially physically active and/or bathe often may not be good candidates, since the medication can be washed off and may take up to six hours to be fully absorbed. There is also the risk that an intimate partner or child may come in contact with the application site and inadvertently dose himself or herself; children and women are highly sensitive to testosterone and can suffer unintended masculinization and health effects, even from small doses. Injection is the most common method used by individuals administering AAS for non-medical purposes. [45]

Hi Keith,
Sorry to hear about your struggles, but glad to see you have been tapering down and soon you will hopefully feel much better.
In terms of whether you should taper the last few mgs slower, it all depends on your mental status and physiological state. Go with how your instincts. I know it’s tough, and I really applaud you for getting to the point you are at right now. It is why, while some feel the use of certain medications to help get off the final mgs would be counterintuitive, I disagree.
Every person is different in how they respond to medications. Based on whether you are taking other meds already, any physical ailments, substance abuse and what kind all takes a role in whether some of these should be used. Here is both prescribed and herbal type agents that for some is very effective in alleviating most of the psychological and physiological distress.
Gabapentin, has been used and for some been effective in alleviating anxiety, even on small dosages along with muscular and neurological type sensations. It has complex properties in terms of what exactly it does, but it seems to modulate GABA. Clonidine, a blood pressure medicine, could help for some with anxiety, hot flushes, hyperthermia type symptoms and sleep. Codeine with butalbital or Tylenol could be very useful if used for only a short amount of time as well. While some of these drugs many would say would be counterintuitive to take, I disagree as it always depends on individual needs, circumstances.
Aside from baclofen, Soma another muscle relaxant has very good sedative and anxiolytic effects.
There are also different herbs that I used as well when getting off benzodiazepines. While there are differing opinions on whether some of them should be used, for me it helped and in speaking with others, they have used it also when down to the last few mgs. Passionflower, Skullcap, Kava, Valerian has good synergy. Using it with chamomile tea(non-caffeine) is a good combination. I recommend extract, not pill form as the liquid form is more suitable under these circumstances.
I hope you are feeling better and if you feel you want to taper off more slowly instead of using other alternatives, than there is nothing wrong with that at all. Just thought I’d give some more alternatives as they have helped me when down to the last mgs.
