a friend of mine began TRT 9 weeks ago and is very pleased with the results.
However, within 24 hrs of his 200mg depotestosterone shot he experiences redness and swelling on the soles of his feet and the palms of his hands. It persists for about 24 hours and is fairly significant.
His doctor switched him to delatestryl and after his first shot, this morning the reaction occurred again, but this time withing 30 minutes.
He is on 240mg every two weeks as he goes into his doctors office for his shots. I’ve explained to him why more frequent injections would be beneficial for the reasons discussed in this forum, but I’m wondering if more frequent, smaller volume injections might also help reduce the allergic reactions.
He really does not want to cease TRT as it has been life changing for him in the short time he’s been using it.
Any insights into the issue and possible solutions would be greatly appreciated.
