I have been using Andro Gel 1.62 (4 pumps per day/max recommended dosage) for several years and overall I am pleased with the results. I have a very conservative general practitioner for a doc and he is totally against adding any other scripts such as HcG or anastrozle. He only tests my total T which usually ranges from 500-750 so I have no idea about free T or estradiol. But, I am guessing they are in normal range because I feel good overall, have morning wood etc. HOWEVER, I have had some significant testes shrinkage. When I told the doc the first thing he wanted to do was scale back the Andro Gel. He actually wants me to be on the low end of normal, like 350-400 or so. But, I donâ??t want to switch docs because the AGel is covered by my insurance and I only pay 20 per month and honestly I simply cannot introduce syringes into the picture due to an agreement I had with my wife. So, I LIKE THE ANDROGEL.
I found another doc who is not covered by insurance, but has scripted me HcG Troches and anastrozle at a very reasonable price. So my question is 2 part.
Do the HcG troches work? I keep reading about how HcG has to be injected and all oral methods are a scam. This doc that scripted these to me assured me they are the real deal and actually do work. Does anyone have any info on these â??newâ?? troches?
Will the HcG and anastrozle likely cause my total T to increase significantly? If they do I was considering tapering them prior to my bi-annual blood draw since all he checks is total T. What will be the likely impact, if any, these new drugs have on my total T assuming my dosage of AGel remains the same?
