Hello all, my testosterone levels were on the low side of normal back in 2010. I beleive they were 330. I started TRT and felt good for a week or so. Then I felt almost like before....depressed...weak feeling. I know there's more to just supplementing T, but I never had the money to buy anything else. And my doc didn't know squat so he just gave me a script for compounded T cream.
Last year the dose was doubled to 200 mg/ml. My T levels went up to around 800 or so. 500 up from my 300 to 330 I had before even starting testosterone therapy. Well, I lost my job 8 months ago. I had refills that I kept getting. Then I ran out of my cream two weeks ago.
I've felt like total crap since. I'm out of breath from doing the slightest effort. My depression is awful. My doc won't refill my script until I pay to see him for labs. But I can't afford the money for the labs. ($500.00) I begged him for one more refill until I get a job. To at least give me a fighting chance. He said no.
My question is.....how many weeks or months will it take for my T levels to go back to near where they were before I started TRT? I'm dizzy. I have trouble standing and walking for any amount of time. I'm sleeping ALOT, and feeling hopeless as hell. But I would rather feel weak and tired like before I started TRT than how I feel now.
Is there anything anyone can suggest? I can't afford labs and TRT. I can't get a merciful refill from my doc. If I could get at least that I can pay the 76 bucks I used to pay for the cream itself. A friend bought me some natural test booster, but that isn't doing much of anything.
Any advice out there? I'm desperate because I have a job offer coming up. But how will my employer react when he sees me looking half-dead and breathing heavily?
