If the script is written for 1 mgs a day and insurance covers it TAKE IT …One can never have too much
1 mgs is over kill unless doing 200 mgs per week. I prefer aromasin as its less rebound then adex. for adex if <50 e2 then probably .25 every 3 days then after 3 weeks get retested to see where you are then adjust
Thanks. Does it matter that I’m on 200mg a week of Test? I don’t quite understand what you said above about the 200mgs a week. I realized I was stupid moments after telling my doctor not to write the scrip for 1mg a day. It dawned on me that I screwed myself out of having a hefty supply on hand.
He meant take the script and fill it. Do NOT however take 1mg of dex a day, thats insane. Follow the general guidelines of 1mg spread through a week[/quote]
The only thing one can do is find the dosage which works for you. If you are in any pain or anything you will eat testosterone like its going out of style. I do not know the full history of the person so it will be hard to any decision on what to do next. Getting the e2 in check will adding little AI would be the best place to start. With guys with issues around 30 e2 who need a little drop, I tend to look for OTC things because ADEX may be too strong in these cases making matters worse. [/quote]
OP, do us all a favor and start with the guideline. Anyone who suggests experimenting with such a high dose is an idiot. Start with what is in sticky and modify as needed. This is TRT we are talking about not a 700+ mgs/week cycle.
When did anyone say anything about a 700mg/week cycle? I am on 200mg a week which isn’t uncommon among TRT patients. Please explain what is going through your head.
By the way, I have read through the guidelines, several times, to the point where I almost have everything in the stickies memorized. Perhaps you either didn’t read what any of us wrote, or are gravely misunderstanding what we’re saying.[/quote]
We cant fix stupid, and you obviously arent following the past 4-5 posts despite your claims. If you choose to take 1mg/day, thats your choice–albeit an absolutely fucktarded one that you will regret. You are not the only one on 200mg/day. I am as well and so are others. You claim youve read the sticky, but 1mg/day states otherwise. My advice to you was to follow the sticky, which states 1mg/week per 100mg as a general guideline that appears to be too much in some cases. So thats 2mgs a week for 200 just in case you cant do math. Whatever the case its your body and we cant fix stupid. Dont post for advice if your going to be a derp. [/quote]
You’re right: You can’t fix stupid.
The sticky doesn’t say 1mg per 100mg of Testosterone, it just suggests 1mg a week as a standard dose for someone on 100mg/week, without instruction on how to change the dose based on how much T you’re injecting. I wasn’t sure how to scale it, so I was asking. I don’t take 1mg a day. If you read what I wrote I said that my doctor’s pharmacists said that was standard, but I corrected him as that would be a dose for estrogen producing cancer, and that 1mg a week is more the standard for people on TRT. I am not on 200mg a day of Testosterone. Learn to read. W-E-E-K spells “week”, which is a period of 7 days (just in case you don’t know how a calendar works). In that 7 days I take 2 (two) 100 (one-hundred) milligram shots. That is a total of 200mg a week in case you can’t do math.
“You are not the only one on 200mg/day. I am as well and so are others.”
I am not on 200mg a day, and I don’t know of any people who are on 200mg a day as part of TRT. And if this is what you are doing I hope you aren’t doing it long term and I hope you don’t actually advise people to do so. 200mg a day isn’t REPLACEMENT, it’s performance enhancement.
Thanks for all the juvenile name-calling! I hope that attitude works out for you. I would suggest you pay closer attention before you do though. It doesn’t make sense to insult someone for something they didn’t say.
And not that it matters, but I’ll break it down for you: I was asking Hardasnails and others if there is a “loading phase” with anastrozole for people who start taking it months after starting TRT, a topic that is not covered in the sticky. I currently take 1mg a W-E-E-K and am on 200mg a W-E-E-K of Testosterone. I had an E2 test on Monday and will get the results on Thursday. If my E2 is still high I will increase the dose.
Now, feel free to take something I said out of context and say childish things about me. I look forward to your mundane insults.[/quote]
200/week–a typo. Im quite aware of what was said. You left the impression of going ahead with the dosage, thats why i quoted the other guy and said it is not a good idea in my post to be sure–his post made it sound like it was ok to experiment at that dosage. You for some reason took offense to that. Whatever, i dont give a shit about your take on that as ive shown thats irrelevant anyways. Dont take the fucking 1mg/day, just fill the fucking script so that you have it. Follow the guideline in the sticky. The sticky has more than just one fucking post in it. Had you read the thread in its entirety, you would have seen how to break up the dosage. Read it ALL.
