Hey Guys and Bros!
I just started TRT (cypionate, 100mg/week - weekly injection) and though the FT and TT were very high, so were my E2 and PROL levels. Here are my numbers.
TT = 794 ng/dl
FT = 174.7 pg/ml
Prolactin = 45.4 ng/dl
E2 = 78 pg/ml
HGB = 16.2
HCT = 48.7
Anyway, long story short, Endo put me on Adex. She prescribed 1 mg/2X a week. After I took my first full 1 mg pill, I was literally on the floor with exhaustion and couldn’t get up, not to mention for the next couple of days could not get an erection, no matter how hard I tried. Oh and I had extreme temper issues, which is uncommon for me. I was ready to rip the head off a squirrel in my backyard (really, not really). Then I remembered splitting the pills into 1/4, and tried that. I waited 2 days and took 0.25 mg…same thing.
So I decided to wait 4 days before taking my next 0.25, to kind of let E2 levels come up. I know the exhaustion and no wood and temper had to do with low E2 levels. Next dose of 0.25 will be tomorrow evening.
I’m starting to get itchy nipples now, but erections are at full mast. Doesn’t make sense.
Also, I cannot lose weight, nor gain weight either. I’m 5’10" and weigh in at an even 200lbs. I got some belly fat, and I know Aromatase is in that belly fat. I can eat like a pig, and not gain a single pound. I can work out like a mad man, not eat anything for a few days, and still not loose weight either. HOWEVER, since starting the Adex, I notice my moon face is going away, and I can see that I’m losing water weight in my body.
How should I dose the Adex? Is 0.25 mg, every other day a good dosing? I heard from Dr. Rand, on Youtube, that Adex should be dosed at 1mg per 100 mg of cypionate. But if I’m feeling this exhausted, and lose my wood (and temper), BUT my E2 and PROL levels are that high, I’m confused about the dosing.
Anyone got solid advice with experience, and not just offering “repeating parrot” things they saw or read about?
