Is 200mg/week TRT enough to add muscle?

No. A test booster is designed to help assist natural test production (and they generally suck at that). You are no longer using your natural test production once you go on TRT and dependent on exogenous.

I know I'm a little late in the game here, but I can attest Matrix has a valid point. When I first came back around after an injury and a ton of health problems, I was about to go on TRT and was on 5 meds just to treat symptoms of hyperthyroidism. After testing my DNA, and consulting with a clinical nutritionist, making some changes, I'm off 4 of them and my test went from 258 to 840 and I'm 35 and have cycled many times.

Genetic predisposition. But I wonder what AAS contributed. It did seem to get worse soon after I ended a 12 week cycle.

Correct, typically resulting in lower TSH values and an elevated Total T4. However, Low T4 with low TSH can sometimes indicate a pituitary problem. There is no way, despite studies on aas and endocrine function, to know for sure how it will effect an individual. They could be predisposed to pituitary or thyroid disorder or be borderline, and introducing an exogenous hormone was all it needed to throw it out of balance.

Anxiety, high blood pressure and appetite loss. However, after reading every study I could get my hands on, I don't believe aas were a major factor in my hyperthyroidism. Here's a great read on the subject, you'll have to google it because it's on another bb site:

I have to check my thyroid again to see what happened.
I know that HGH slows it down too
