Wow - great feedback and quick! Actually, since I posted this earlier today, I visited my general practitioner. She put me on Lorsartan (as @anon10035199 suggested). She did offer Lisinopril first but I saw your post, so I got her to change it. Thanks!
@systemlord - I don’t have many recent hormone markers. My E2 is usually around 30-40 - I have a hard time getting that (I get my anastrozole from a peptide shop online) because my TRT prescribing doctor is a hemo/oncologist - and he will not prescribe arimidex (because it’s a breast cancer med, nearly ridiculed me out of his office for asking), nor does he see the need to test for estrogen, but he does test it on occassion to humor me and I secretly take my peptide anastrozole. I am pretty sure I over-respond to anastrozole - I take 3 drops per injection (2x weekly) to keep me in the 30-40 range. Is there a special name for the SHBG that I should ask for? I see him next week so I can add it on to my other tests then.
My CBC is checked every month to every few months (by my oncologist), and I am always riding high H/H, but I have a standing order to get phlebotomies when I need them - I can’t donate blood like normal people because I am on chemotherapy - so my blood is poison.
I plan to get back on my exercise regimen soon (cardio and weight training). I have several nerve ablations I am having done in 2 weeks, then I hope to be able to move more freely. My general practitioner did mention that she didn’t suspect that my weight was a contributing factor, but suggested lowering my salt intake, and try to get better sleep so I will try that too. I currently require ambien to sleep - so we changed that to a different drug today to see if it will work better. I also plan to reduce my dose of TEST next week to probably 100 or 110mg/week. I do appreciate all the great advice, I should come in here more often!
Does anyone know if there are any ‘find a good TRT doc’ online resources yet? Looking in the south Denver area. If not, maybe I should make one
