Hi Guys - I’ll start this post with saying that I’m one of those guys that first started my TRT journey by going to a “t-mill” four years and working with a highly uneducated HRT doctor. He was quick to prescribe me 200/mg per week of test cyp, 1500 iu’s 2x per week of HCG, and 1 mg of anastrozole 3x per week as a starting dose. Needless to say, it was the rollercoaster from hell once all these medications kicked in. I quickly learned that I’d need to educate myself and start the journey to find a doctor who knew what the hell he was doing.
I recently found a great doctor out of TN that is extremely progressive and on the cutting edge of this medicine. He’s a wealth of knowledge and has great insight. I’m writing this post as I’m curious as to how the members of this forum deal with/ if anyone is experiencing trouble focusing and overall decreased cognition while on TRT. When my T levels reach a point of me feeling the true benefits of testosterone, my mental focus becomes cloudy and I enter a fog like daze a lot of the time. I become very sensitive to caffeine, my focus goes to shit, and my overall cognition just goes down a notch. I will say that I’m fully convinced (largely in part to this new doctor) that estrogen is not to blame for this. I don’t believe in nor do I take an AI.
Does anyone have any insight on the above, or potentially any supplements, or secondary blood tests I should be running to try and alleviate the issue?
I appreciate everyones feedback. Thanks!
