I have Addisons disease and am recovering from a pituitary tumor removal from 5 years ago that shut my pituitary down. I take 2 CC of Testosterone every 2 weeks, I take 125MCG of Levothyroxine every day, I also take 25 MG’s of Hydrocort(Cortef) every day 15 in morning and 10 late afternoon.
I just went up to the new Test schedual 3 weeks ago I was on 200 MG every 2 weeks and was very tired and moody now I am at 400 every 2 weeks,I also take a Magnesium supplyment that Nutri shop here in CoeurDalene suggested I do it is in powder capsule form I have seen improvement in my mood and body since then in just a short time do i nned to take potasium or anything elde like that?
I was wondering how to safely avoid my water retention I have been gaining alot of water and have been diligent on my sodium intake and is it safe to inject 1 CC a week. MY doctor wants me to stay every 2 weeks. I have read some forum posts about doing weekly or by weekly. I have tried to study Testosterone and its effects and I could be wrong but since I produce no testosterone or Cortef what does half life mean and is it a waste to inject all 2ML’s all at once since I start high and end low?
My last labs on the old schedule had me at 137 after 8 days. I have not had new labs yet the doctor wanted me on this schedule for 2 months then retest. I am wondering if anyone has experience in this area and can give me honest guidance in this area.
