Old, Quit Low Dose TRT, Side Effects. Help?


#1

Just turned 59 and reality hits hard. Been a full year since last cycle and was doing low dose trt but having pain and mild flu like symptoms for a few days after injection so I quit cold turkey. Lifts libido energy all suffer.
Question any over the counter test supps help or go legit and try prescribed trt.

Thanks in advance KTM

OTC does not get much done.

Please read these stickies:

  • advice for new guys <<< note first paragraph>>>
  • thyroid basics
  • protocol for injections
  • finding a TRT doc

Thyroid issues are quite common. If there are thyroid problems, TRT can make some feel worse as the increase metabolic demands of TRT cannot be handled with inadequate thyroid function.
