I started taking Sustanon five weeks ago at 250mg EOD (875/week). This was my first time injecting T. At that point I'd already been taking anastrazole for 3 weeks, 50mg ED, which I've continued.
I did 250mg EOD for 3 weeks without any noticeable effects except sporadic morning wood (which I'd never had before). No real increase in appetite, weight, mood, libido, or energy level.
For week 4, I frontloaded 1000mg instead of injecting throughout the week. After 1 day, mood, libido, and energy all increased. Whereas usually I would get an erection maybe every other day, I began to get spontaneous erections several times a day or more. Energy was up slightly, and mood definitely improved -- I had this low, steady buzz of well-being, where things that would have bothered me before felt distant and trivial.
This wore off after 3-4 days. For week 5 (current week), I did the same frontloading. It's been 4 days since the shot, and there's been no effects at all.
I decided to take the sustanon primarily for HRT reasons, and only second to build mass. I self-medicated instead of going to a reputable HRT doctor because I've had the classic symptoms of low test my entire life -- steady fatigue, non-existent libido, a high digit ratio, etc. -- and I was impatient. I wanted something that would work almost immediately, instead of taking several months to kick in.
Which leaves me at a complete loss for why the sust isn't working. I'm almost certain the sust is legit, so that's not the problem. The source is reliable, the drug has the stinging chemical taste of real T, there's the normal sust injection pain, and the amps look real. I researched hypothroidism after reading about it here, but I don't think that's the problem either. Apart from fatigue, I've never had any of the typical hypothyroidal symptoms.
I purposely took a fast-acting ester (and in large doses) to feel the effects ASAP. Everything I've read says sust usually kicks in at the 3-week mark, or in weeks 4 and 5 at the latest. I'm beginning to get really worried here -- if megadoses have only a mild, transient effect at best and don't work most of the time, I wonder if my body is somehow immune to T?
For now, I plan to keep taking it for another 3-4 weeks and see if it eventually kicks in. I'm also reducing the anastrazole to .25mgEOD -- I want to make sure the high anastrazole doses aren't killing my mood and libido.
If anyone has any advice, or any suggestions on how to improve the sust's efficacy, I'd greatly appreciate it... I know there are a lot of knowledeable people who post here.
