Test Cyp Shortage?
Walgreens is having a shortage of test cyp and a couple of compound pharms have said they dont have any injectables. Anyone else experiencing this? Would also like to know if any one would have a recommendation for another protocol for an injectable? Any help would be appreciated. took my last shot on Sunday and im scared ****less that i wont have something to keep them up.

Yes. You can google Testosterone Cypionate shortage, but you get this. FYI, I keep an extra vial in the safe.
Testosterone Cypionate Intramuscular Injection
[11 September 2013]
Products Affected - Description
Testosterone Cypionate intramuscular injection, Paddock
200 mg/mL, 1 mL vial, (NDC 00574-0820-01)
200 mg/mL, 10 mL vial, (NDC 00574-0820-10)
Testosterone Cypionate intramuscular injection, West-Ward
200 mg/mL, 10 mL vial, (NDC 00143-9726-01)
Reason for the Shortage
Paddock has testosterone on back order due to raw material shortage and increased demand.
West-Ward could not provide a reason for the shortage.
Sandoz discontinued testosterone cypionate 200 mg/mL 1 mL and 10 mL vials in September 2011. Sandoz discontinued final presentation in first half of 2012.
Testosterone Cypionate intramuscular injection, Watson
200 mg/mL, 10 mL vial, (NDC 00591-3223-79)
Depo-testosterone intramuscular injection, Pfizer
100 mg/mL, 10 mL vial, (NDC 00009-0347-02)
200 mg/mL, 1 mL vial, (NDC 00009-0417-01)
200 mg/mL, 10 mL vial, (NDC 00009-0417-02)
Estimated Resupply Dates
Paddock has both testosterone cypionate presentations on back order and the company estimates a release date of late-October 2013.
West-Ward has testosterone cypionate on allocation.

FYI, Walgreens uses Paddock, at least I got one from them thre vials ago. The last two were Watson.

Apparently Walmart is being affected too. My script was supposed to be filled last Friday and it's still not ready although they said it should be in today. Paddock is what I got last time.
Remember why you started.

Who sells West-Ward? Emailed co. But no response.

I have had a very hard time getting paddock recently in the single dose 1ml vial. I had to get a new script for the multi dose 10ml vials of watson brand I haven't had much of a problem getting those.

I just had to wait 4 weeks for Watson to be filled. I heard from another guy I know on TRT that he had to wait 6 weeks for his brand.
Note to self- TRT is getting very popular. Don't wait until the last couple weeks to refill.

Another option is to look and see if there are any local compounding pharmacies in your area. I've been using one close to me and not only is the price better if your insurance doesn't cover TRT but I have never had to wait due to shortage.

Just picked up a 10ml vial of Paddock today.
Remember why you started.

Does the brand matter with test cyp or enan? My insurance used to pay for Watson, but now only pays for West-Ward. I can tell the Watson vial and rubber stopper are better quality than the West-Ward, and Watson's oil is a tad darker yellow.

Yeah f..n pharmacist failed to tell me the had the 10ml available so Ive been busting my ass all week to find a refill. Then I speak with a cool lady assistant and shes says I only have 10ml let call your doc and get it taken care of....wtf were was she all week. Lesson learned make sure you ask for the next bigger available.
10-11-2013, 11:11 PM
All script Test should be good quality, so brand shouldn't matter. That being said, I have only tried Paddock and Watson. I pretty much stick to CVS and Walgreens.

I always had trouble finding the 1ml. Since upping the rx to 10, no problem with Walgs. But I am due for a refill this week so we shall see. Funny because the underground labs are doing just fine with test....

Got my 10 ml refill at cvs Friday....no problems

My endo told me they can't get test enanthate anymore so they're switching me to cyp
11-01-2013, 07:12 AM
There is no practical difference between cypionate and enanthate.

Now the pharmacies are telling me that neither is available in generic form, and the soonest will be December 31. W T F

He suggested you go to another pharmacy or another branch because this simply is not true. He told me how much test is in his pharmacy and also the ordering process. Also, make sure you are speaking directly to the pharmacist and not to the technician. Often times the techs are uninformed and/or just don't feel like doing work.

A few months ago, before W switched to buying through a distributor (actually 2 ) backorders were common. Now that W is their own distributor, backorders shouldn't be happening.
Foster a great relationship with your pharmacist and be amazed at how things can get expedited.

Also, Walgs closest to hospitals are much busier and much more efficient at getting medications.

I go to Costco a lot and have other places around me, so I wonder if I'd have better luck. Walgreens is just my default because I have been going there for years.
11-16-2013, 03:23 PM
You know, Walgs is the largest pharmacy in the world. They just keep expanding. At some point, customers are going to demand better service and individual attention. If yall keep getting this runaround, perhaps its time for a plan B...
11-16-2013, 04:41 PM
Well, yeah. Especially getting information that what they are telling us may not be true.
11-25-2013, 12:41 AM
Weird as i just got mine filled at Walgreens here in cali with no issue?...
11-25-2013, 07:16 AM
Got mine filled finally. By the way, don't go through Express Scripts. I've heard they've been telling customers for the past few months they won't have generic testosterone cypionate or enanthate, only brand name in order to charge more. Local pharmacies cost as much if not less than Express Scripts. Got a 90 day supply of my old brand for $15 from CVS.

I did a search on the internet and found a compounding pharmacy in Houston that has product pages on both Testosterone Cypionate and Testosterone Enanthate. I called them up and they said they still have plenty of both in stock. The name of the pharmacy is Empower Pharmacy.

Just refilled yesterday and had no problems like I have in the past. I'm happy.
12-10-2013, 08:11 PM
i get mine delivered to me every month with no problems
