Hey Guys! I’m the latest lost soul looking for help!
Cliff Notes: My problem is I’m weepy with a lack of aggression, motivation, and sexual desire. I want to be how I was in my 30’s. Skip to lab results.
I presently 51 and started feeling kinda blah without any motivation or drive at about age 47. Sexual desire is pretty low or only in the morning after being a hounddog for most of my life. I love my wife who is attractive, fit and twenty years younger than me.
GP had me tested and put me on Anastrozole at 1 mg per week and Chlomid at 50 mg per day. I read up on all the posts about Chlomid and Anastrozole on this site as well as others and did the following: 1. 0.25 mg of Anastrozole M/F and 2. Chomid 25 mg MF. Over time I increased the Chlomid to the present dose of 50 mg MF and 25 mg W. I dropped the Anastrozle after my November 2019 lab work as I was getting arm pain and elbow joint pain at night which I thought was a side from the Anastrozole. After droppping the Anastrozole and increasing the Chlomid I was weepy as little girl at just about any slightly sad situation on the tv or at a movie. It got really ridiculous. Estradol shot up. Now its not too bad (the emotional stuff).
Doc is always on me about high cholesterol and high glucose.Initially prescribed me a statin for the cholesterol which dropped by cholesterol dramatically but my muscles where constantly sore after/when lifting weights. Very painful so dropped the statin and my cholesterol shot up to what it is today.
I’m 6’ and weigh 210 lbs with approximately 18-20% bodyfat level and cutting for the summer. My maximum lifts are 300 B, 300 S, and 350 DL. I train three days per week full body and squat 3 times per week.
LAB RESULTS for both my initial test in February 2018 and my latest test March 2020. I test every three months:

My problem: weepy with a lack of aggression, motivation, and sexual desire. I want to be how I was in my 30’s.
Looking for suggestions based on experience for adjusting my meds (anastrozole and chlomid) which I have on hand to optimize or TRT direction taking into account I would like to have a couple more kids over the next three years or so.
Thank you for your help and attention!
