“Hello AL …my doc just put me on TEST ENANTHATE 200mg’s every other week…he did not talk about HCG nor Arimidex?”
From everything I’ve been reading online, that is common. 100-200mg per week is also the norm, more people on 100 than 200 (but the guys with more progressive doctors seem to want the men in the upper healthy ranges around 1000, so they give 200) I guess 100 puts most people around 5-700 from what I’ve read.
As far as arimidex (that’s to keep your estrogen down) there’s lots of info about it on many of the message board threads online (the HRT forums) Most average doctors don’t know alot about HCG OR Arimidex for treating HRT.
You can google Dr. Crisler for his detailed reasons why those 2 medications should be a part of your HRT treatment. If your doc refuses to be open minded about making sure you get the best treatment- well… then find a doctor who is knowledgable about the most current HRT treatments.
The help I got from the clinic was maybe a little bit too good at first, but I found out what I needed to know through research, and I’m squared away ok for now. I don’t know what longterm HRT studies have shown (or if there are any, lol) but if you have a real medical need for therapy you are probably better on it then off. JMO
