I’ve been on TRT for four years with very good results. I do not sleep well and about a year and a half ago started trazadone (after trying many other remedies). Trazadone works, but the nightmares are a significant side effect for me and I do not like it.
I just finished (about one month ago) six months of sermorelin with GHRP2 and 6. My doctor explained that it stimulates the pituitary to produce hGH, natural hGH, but it can only make what it is naturally capable of making, so you can’t OD on it like the huge BBer guys taking straight hGH several times a day. That scares me. It is an insulin needle injection before bed every night for a month, which blows through one vial, then every other day so I got two months from a vial.
It immediately helped my sleep, no trazadone needed. I’m 63 with many joint issues (hence my sleep problems) and it helped the joints as well. Training improved as I was able to do more work and increase intensity. I also gained muscle and lost fat, and I was already in good shape. That is maybe indirectly as a result of better training, if not directly. I have veins where I never had (I was a weightlifter, not a bodybuilder) so I would say it leaned me out somewhat.
My doctor said some guys run it indefinitely, but it is also reported that you can do six months and retain the benefits for another six. I pretty much had to go back to the trazadone after stopping, but so far strength is maintained, still lean, and I feel good.
It is expensive, I almost hoped it wouldn’t work so well, so I certainly wouldn’t fall for a placebo effect. Plan right now is to give it six months and see how I do without it. I expect I’ll use it again after that.
