    That said, I talked to him yesterday and he said he is apparently not responding well, since he is retaining water and a few other things. I asked him if an AI would help and has his doc prescribed one!? He said no and went on to tell me about all the **** he got from his urologist and his MD about taking something like arimidex.
    My question is...,
    Do they even have a legal AI, that they prescribe for men? Since both his doctors told him they can and or will not prescribe him a female cancer drug, for apparent fears or repercussions and law suits!?
    He says his libido is up/good, but he looks rather puffed up from the water and his doc says Lasix is about the absolute worst thing on your kidneys that you could ever use.
    I don't think any endo (who isn't at an anti-aging clinic) would prescribe an ai. I asked mine when I started would I need an ai, he flat out said he wouldn't prescribe one. The anti aging clinics are the only place you'll get a doc to prescribe you an ai. The insurance companies sure the hell don't want to pay for them.

    IMO, since most docs that do trt have their pts inject weekly, they prolly don't see a lot of increased e2.

    Yeah, he doesn't want to use lasix that's for sure. It does sound like his e2 might be high due to the water retention. Does he take high BP drugs too? That could be another cause of water retention. Salt intake too.

    I'd really need to see some labs to make any further guesses - that's all they really are - to try to pin it down. How often does he inject and what dose?

    All that said, if he does indeed need an ai, 15 minutes worth of googling is all he needs to do. There are plenty of companies selling 'research chemicals.' Maybe his rat will need an ai...

    Ahh OK. In fact I do think he is on a BP drug.
    Thanks for reply, will tell him, as I do believe he is on a few drugs come to think if it.

    Read the posts kisaj and I have out there about injecting more frequently. Have him do some reading on it. It really does help keep things on an even keel...

    For the time being I'm following the doctors orders and injecting 100mgs once a week.

    That sounds good but I was actually thinking about 50 mgs E3d. Would that be overkill? ?

    The only way to find out is to try it and get some labs my friend...

    Yea I'm going to get some labs done on my own I'm planning on having blood drawn after I've been on 4 weeks. I was thinking I should do it 6 days after my last injection, what do you think?? I'm not sure how many days after my last injection would be best.

    It really depends, man. I had probably 10 labs done while I was trying to sort it out. Turns out that for me, 40mg is actually the best, but it's totally trial/error.

    Even with TRT, I'm crazy subjective to sides.

  11. Another of my many questions..Lol What do you guys do when you go on vacation. Once a year we go away for 2-3 weeks. (we usually drive) Do you guys bring your testosterone with you?? What if you get pulled over by the police or something?

    I keep the box it came in with the prescription info on it. Additionally, it's in my bag, in my shaving kit so nobody sees it.

    Typically when I get pulled over I don't act as if I'm smuggling 43 kilos of blow; a test script is no different than Xanax, 1000mg ibuprofen or anything else.

    I like to flaunt my ibuprofen right in the cops face..

  14. Typically the Police are not randomly searching or asking to search your car on a traffic stop, unless you are exhibiting some clues of smuggling. And they certainly are not gonna care about a bottle of test. Moot point with a script
