I was wondering whether the "Test-E @ 100 mgs/week" phase of Prisoner's test taper could be omitted. Here's my reasoning: The half life of Test-E is 10 days. Thus, immediately after the final shot (@ 250/mgs per shot), there would presumably be about 1000 mgs of test in the body. In 10 * 3 days ~= 4 weeks, if no shots are administered, test levels will be around 125 mgs. This is the point where the body may start producing its own test.
Those shots at 100 mgs/week seem to me to just delay the time needed to get test levels low enough for natural test production to be restored. 600/mgs test could be saved and 12 fewer shots administered if this phase were removed.
Am I missing something?
