I started TRT on 6/2, doing 40mg EOD cypionate.
I’m also on T3 and T4.
The first week I felt sleepy during the day, but thought maybe it was just an adjustment period, but nothing has really changed.
During those first few days, one hypothesis was it was just a matter of getting more calories since I was burning more on the T, but since then I have increased my calorie intake, and am eating well, and am finding no relief from the mental exhaustion and lack of focus.
As a comparison, prior to starting the TRT, and on the thyroid alone, I could sit 12 hours a day and do non-stop technical work, but now I’m lucky for a few hours a day.
However I am physically motivated. I can get myself into the gym every other day. (Nothing too crazy, just an hour of cross-fit.)
Face is looking a little bloated according to others. Weight has increased almost 8 pounds in that time.
I’m getting new bloods tomorrow. It would be nice I guess if it’s something easy to pick out, like high E2 for example.
I thought I’d seed this thread first to see if other’s had any similar experiences and anything they might have done to get things working right.
One other change was in the last 6 days I have stopped taking Wellbutrin. I was on about 75mg for 4 weeks prior to that. But the tiredness was there prior to getting off that, so don’t think that’s it.
Thanks for reading.
