    Use of Nebido for TRT


    Is Nebido suitable for TRT? Schering claims it will keep test levels in the normal range with only 4 injections per year. Apparently it's a long acting ester of testosterone (testosterone undecanoate) in a special formulation. Not sure if it's available in the US. What do you think Doc?

    Its rubish, it brings them really high for the 1st month, then low for the following months, no one whos tried it has anything good to say about it.

    But it would be interesting to see how 200mg every 2 weeks would go, I guess it would be simular to pellets, with pellets coming out on top.

    Dr. John, why is a short acting ester more apropriate for more frequent injections then a long acting ester? Wouldn't it all balance out eventually or even to the longer acting esters favour?

    EG: 45mg Test Prop. every 3 days or 45mg Test Undec. every 3 days?

    Undecanoate has a half-life of about 2 weeks so i can't see how four injections per year could possibly provide stable blood levels for months at a time... i imagine that injecting it every two weeks could possibly work ok.

    Perhaps in some oils but Nebido has been used in hypogonadal men and has been confirmed to have a half life of 21 days. Using something like castor oil could increase it to 16 days.

    Even with a 21 day half-life... i still find it unlikely to provide stable bloodlevels for months at a time. There's no way in hell that doing 4 injections per year would work for most hypogonadal men.

    So stay away from Nebido if you can.

    Are you in the UK get this Indolplex/DIM you will feel much better getting your E2 down this link sends to the UK.
    PhytoPharmica Indolplex with DIM
    Take one table at dinner time no more if you do you will go down so fast you will miss feeling better. I have guys tell me they are getting good morning wood on this in just 3 to 4 days I tell them there E2 is good when wood starts but if it stops your going to low so stop until wood comes back then go back on it but cut the tablet in half.
    Also take some TMG with this at bed time helps wash out the E's that get converted.

    Not sure but it was bad enough without having the new anti terrorism laws, they have ridiculous power to search now.

    They can search your house without a warrant if they have reasonable suspicion ie: anonymous tip off. Strict traffic laws, you can get your liscense suspended easily although there are alot of accidents here so I dont mind that law. In the next few months provisional drivers wont be allowed to carry passengers at night, only 1 passenger during the day(something like that), and even 10km over the speed limit will result in a 3 month liscense suspension.
    Crooked police force and government always in the news, cops for sexual misconduct against female cops, government for bribery etc.

    Indevus has filed for FDA approval for Nebido


    Bringing back an old thread..

    http://biz.yahoo.com/prnews/070828/netu042.html?.v=17

    Indevus has filed for FDA approval for Nebido in the US. I know that others in this old thread were not supportive of using it every 3 months. I'd still be interested in looking at prescribing information/study results.

    They said 94% had normal T during the study at 1000mg. Perhaps this just means you start at T=1100 and by month three you are at T=300. Technically, you've had T in the normal range for 3 months.

    A local urologist was trying to get me into a study for this.


    I declined until more is known. They claimed injections every 10 weeks or so would work, adding that existing subjects were very happy. I wonder......

    I found a PDF which supports my suspicions..

    "Based on the pharmacokinetic data, the most rational
    and simple dosing scheme is a six-week interval
    between the first and second injection followed by
    injections every 12 weeks. It is important to inject
    slowly and deeply into the gluteus maximus. After 12
    weeks, the dosing interval can be adapted, based on
    clinical symptoms, and the trough testosterone level
    determined prior to the following injection. The
    trough level should be at the lower limit of the
    normal range.
    "

    So start high, end low, get new shot, repeat. Just like the 2 week shot dosing regimen.

    Working from memory..........
    Vforcer2 was reporting good results on pellets, but his levels vere 1100-->800
    The Nebido's 1100--->300 looks drastic and probably not acceptable.

    Assuming that (1100-800) is the desirable oucome
    one would have to change frequency and dose, but it seems workable provided price is right.
    -----------------------------------------
    Wonder what this constant ups and downs would do to other hormones,
    SHBG, E2
    -----------------------------------------

    I am on E3D schedule of 140mg/week depoT.
    In a few days I will know my low number, (bood drawn on day of the shot, before shot).
    is there any literature that would help me guestimate the high number.

    Or at least information on when to draw a blood to get the MAX and MIN on my E3D schedule.

    Which has been shown to not work

    Nebido is a no go. Run run run.

    What saddens me is that it will get approval and alot of unknowing people will be put on it.
