I am 35, 215lbs used to work out. Take 50mg of Zoloft for anxiety for 28 years, and 10 mg of Adderall a day for 15 years. I dont’ abuse adderral, but since starting trt I feel like I need to double up to function. It started the beginning of this year tired everyday, can’t get motivated to do stuff I used to do, like work out. I also feel like I can’t remember anything new or recall anything unless something triggers the memory. I thought I was just get older and wore down with kids, but about 5 months ago started getting what felt like a lump and a lot of tenderness in my left nipple. My wife finally got me to go to the dr, and after lots of blood work and mri’s he diagnosed me with low T and gyno. Here or my results.
Low LH 1.5
Low free test 8.1
low test 232
He started me on cypionate 200mg/ml 1ML every 2 weeks. I take the shot on Monday, and while I really don’t feel any energy or better sleep, I feel that for the first few days caffeine and Adderall have a better affect on my ability to have energy and think. After about 5-7 days, it feels like its completely gone and I am just extremely tired and can only function if I am taking in caffeine all day long. As for sex drive, it doesn’t increase until about sunday and last till about Wednesday. (days 7-10) After day 10 the thought doesn’t even cross my mind and I just feel depressed, tired, and just dumb. I feel like I can’t think at all, and want to avoid conversations.
I just went to my dr today and told him what was going on, and that I still have gyno and he broke the 1ml/200mg shot up from every two weeks to 1 .5ml/200mg weekly. Same dose just broke up.
I had mri’s on my head and no tumors or anything, and the dr is unsure of what is causing it. He has set me up with an endo, but I can’t get in until March.
My questions are should I be feeling better as far as brain function and tiredness? Is there anything I can do to increase the effectiveness of it? Does my dose seem good?
Anyone with advice to a newbie would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
