Insomnia from Transdermal T


#1

I recently started and today decided to stop transdermal TRT due to terrible insomnia that hasn't resolved over two weeks. It happens no matter what time of day I apply it. I am prone to insomnia but it was more or less under control with sleep meds; however, the transdermal T makes even a high dose of sleep medication completely ineffective.

Has anyone else experienced this? Did it resolve by itself or with a change in regimen?

(Please don't mention the word melatonin :wink:

We can guess that T–>E2 might be a factor.
