Hello All -
Looking for some advise. I have been on TRT for 9 years, without issue. I changed my protocol of twice weekly dose of 100mg per dose S/T, Anastrozole 1mg, M/W/F to splitting the 200mg per week into e3d injections of ~60mg to get rid of the peaks and valleys I was experiencing. I did not adjust my AI schedule and confused my symptoms with high e2 (very sensitive to E) So I took an extra Anastrozole and went into anxiety hell, skipped right pass all my normal symptoms. Got my blood work done May 22rd / got the results back May 27th
SEX HORMONE BINDING GLOBULIN = 8 Range: 10-50
Testosterone Free = 448.6 Range 46 - 224
Testosterone Total = 1145 Range 250 - 1100
Testosterone Bioavailable = 863 Range 110 – 575
Estradiol, Ultrasensitive LC/MC = 9 Range: < OR = 29
Stopped taking the AI and kept on with my injections, and the anxiety subsided, I would be ok I just added 50mg of zinc E3D to help keep things in line. After a a week Anxiety up and down dry skin, no libido, brain fog, very sleepy but can’t sleep, anxiety can’t eat not hungry, Stopped the zinc, lowered my injections to 40mg E3D, and still anxiety so bad I could not work, sleep, or anything just pace. 24 hours after my injection the anxiety would be devastating. Looking at the numbers from my test I can only guess that with a gap that large between TEST and E was causing me to feel like this. I stopped on June 20th, I added DHEA 50mg / Pregnenolone100mg (Compounded Capsule) per day (HCG Gives me horrible acne) cause I read that it will bring E2 levels up. My TRT Dr is out of the office on holiday till next week, and I have a trip planned for work but there is no way I can sit on a plane in this state. How long till my E levels come up?
