Decreasing TRT Dosage


#1

My doctor placed me on TRT 8 weeks ago, I’ve been taking 1 ML weekly for 8 weeks. Today I went to get a new vile from pharmacy and they told me the Dr. changed my prescription dosage from 1 ML to .25 ML I WAS JUST WONDERING WHY THE Dr. would do that??? Should I be concerned and see the Dr. before injecting the .25 ML??? Any news feed would help!! THANKS!!!

That’s weird. Im assuming the concentration is 200mg/ml. So you’re going from 100mg per week to 25mg per week. Not good. Go speak to your doctor.

Hes going from 200 mg per week to 50 mg per week… quite a significant difference…


#4

1ml of what? 200mg/ml or 100mg/ml or 250mg/ml

Please refer to doses in mg

Post lab results - always with ranges.

Ask your doctor.
Did you just get labs done and he is reacting to that?
When you do labs, lab timing relative to last injection has a huge effect on results.

Suggest that you ask for:
self-inject 50mg T twice a week

Evaluate your overall thyroid function by checking oral body temperatures as per the thyroid basics sticky. Thyroid hormone fT3 is what gets the job done and it regulates mitochondrial activity, the source of ATP which is the universal currency of cellular energy. This is part of the body’s temperature control loop. This can get messed up if you are iodine deficient. In many countries, you need to be using iodized salt. Other countries add iodine to dairy or bread.

200MG/ML he switched it to .25 ML after being on for 8 weeks straight while taking 1ML

Yeah, I stopped by the Dr. office and I had my file reviewed, I guess they ordered my script online so I came out .25 . They put a new script in for 1ML instead of .25! She said good thing I caught it because that type of drop in testosterone would have been bad for me! Thanks for y’all taking talks time to help me out! :muscle:t4:

Inject twice a week.
At 200mg/week, you can be expected to have high E2.
Are you OK with shrinking testes and good risk of infertility?
