So I guess all the 200mg vials that get prescribed are meant for cycles and not TRT. It's really weird that they would do that all the time. LOL.

It's probably more that they are a "one size fits all" since prescriptions will vary and they just picked a happy medium to cover the majority of cases.

I have tried a lot of testosterone boosters. I don't think any of them really do much. I think what some of them really are are sex stimulants. Some things like horny goat weed make my penis more sensitive and orgasms better, but I think it has nothing to do with testosterone.

Tribulus is bunk and though all the anecdotal evidence of DAA is good or whatever, it did absolutely nothing for my T levels.

Yeah. Obviously any of us in this forum understand how many outside variables play into T levels, but keeping everything as consistent as possible between testing times and following recommended 3.2g a day for 60 days brought numbers down from 258 to 243.

My HRT bottle lasts 12 weeks and it's been like this for years. Doctor or pharmacy never said to throw it out after 30 days.
12-05-2012, 02:59 PM
Sorry, I wasnt clear. My point was that since it is a standard in the industry, insurance follows the hospital standard and pays to replace the bottle at that point as well. Say a patient in a hospital was getting a treatment and treatment ran past the 28 days even though the bottle wasnt empty, it would be confusing trying to keep up with different standards between insurance and the hospital. I wasnt claiming that it needed to be thrown away after 28 days; I keep mine and use it until it's gone and save the surplus.

Hey fellas. Been tuning into this post. I'm 36 yr old with all the symtpoms of Low T. Always tired, no energy, no sex drive always moody. I basically had been argueing with my wife the past 2 years if not more to the point her thinking I was cheating on her. I wasnt but that what she felt. Anywho, just got tested yesterday and got my results today. My T levels were at 105. My HDL was at low end of normal but my LDL were 2 pts higher than normal range. I will post the specifics once I go into see my Doc next week. She did tell me over the phone she was going to prescibe me T shots at 100 mg a week. Im not sure if thats a good thing or not. Definately want a normal life back, but if I can gain some mass on it also hey what the heck lets do it. Any help would be great. Thanks

I would be dancing around in anticipation. Keeping in mind that it can and usually does take a couple-few weeks for all the positives to be noticed, but you should see a rebound in energy and mood pretty fast.
I'm not even joking when I say that I actually get excited for you guys that are suffering and are working with doctors that will offer T injections. It is such a life changer that I can't help but feel happy for you.

Kisaj and 3f thanks for your help. I have been suffering and unfortunately it has nearly cost me my job and my marriage. Question, can u run a ph along with t shots. Pct just needed for liver? Thanks and def rep power to both of u.
12-07-2012, 09:36 PM
First off, I would never run a ph. Secondly, there is no pct needed and you should concentrate on getting yourself on track and not add in variables. Of course, this is only my opinion. I come from a school of thought that you concentrate on getting healthy and then stick with the basics of eating, lifting, fitness, resting, calming and building the mind, and profit. You'll be incredibly surprised what you can do mentally and physically by getting your test levels right.

It's funny you mentioned PH. I was just thinking during my workout today... I felt as good if not better today than when I ran epistane. And that's just TRT test cyp @ 120mg/ divided 70/50 per week. In fact, my wife was done and I stayed for another 10 minutes and kept lifting...and Saturdays are usually my rest day.
Although I'm still considering some kind of cycle (Prob not PH) I have been impressed with my strength gains just being on this TRT. I go back and forth about what to do, but after a day like today, I feel like I'm already on. Well, I am on but you know, not at cycle dosages. Part of the other reason I'm not cycling though is that I don't even know where to get the injectables.

Yeah 3f I can't wait to feel that good. I go yo the gym 4x a week and have decent workouts but the only reason I get through is because my PWO! Prob would go another day too. I'm curios also what ur T levels are at also. I'm happy for u bro. I'm glad ur hitting it hard and feeling good again. Keep it up. I'm sure I would definitely start gaining some bulk once I get on.

My last blood work was on 11/6. My levels were
But.... After one of the 5 docs I've been to saw that, he said he wanted total test to be 800-1100. So he upped my dose from 100mg/week to 120/week. Since upping the dose about 2 weeks ago, I'm not sure my new #'s.
Something I learned to look for (from these forums) is how the test half life affects you. I was originally rx'd 200 e2w. That was too big of up/down so I had a different doc write it for e7d. But now I go 2x/week and that's even better.
12-10-2012, 03:49 PM
Well tomorrow is the big day. First I get my first T shot of 200mg then also my script for 100mg a week. Secondly, I will be able to post my #'s what my actual blood work was. Im really excited to feel normal again and have the energy that I need to work my 12 hr shifts and have enough energy to keep up with my 3 yr old daughter... Better days on the horizon...
