    Need advice on perscribed TRT meds.

    I am 45 yrs. old, been doing prohormones for quite a years. just had all my levels checked and all were good except my testosterone was at 242 so Dr started me on TRT. He would only perscribe Axiron transdermal at 60mg/day. I talked to him about it increasing my estrogen and he knew nothing on this subject. Has anyone ever used Axiron and should I be concerned about estrogen levels raising? Any info you guys can provide would be great appreciated...

    Any type of testosterone administration can cause an increase in estrogen via aromatization. You will just need to to some lab work maybe 4-6 weeks after being on to see if its a problem.

    My Dr put me on 250mg cyp a week. I asked about an AI and he said it wasn't necessary. He not aware of the other 1000mg a week I take lol. Get bloodwork done in 5 weeks, be specific about what you want checked and find the sticky on here about getting labs without a Dr. You might also ask the Dr about switching you to injections.
    Edit: next time you see him have plenty of medical paperwork supporting what you think would be best for you. Most general physicians have no clue as what's best when it comes to TRT.


    Good luck
    I never find the time to find another place,
    I'm a bad motherfucker who lives it every day.
    You never look at me now, you never look me in the face.
    I'm a timebomb yeah

    I'd find another doctor. Yours sounds like he shouldn't be giving out TRT meds.
    Like people about as much as they like me. Never found a way to say fuck you politely.

    I tried to explain about estrogen going up, but of course he denied that it would happen with low dose of Testosterone. He was totally against shots. Suppose to have new labs run 1st of December. The thought of looking at another doctor that understands trt might be my best shot. I just started today with axiron at 60 mg, and formeron at 2 pumps per day. Figured this would suffice for now. Does that sound about right until I can get dr. to change or find a new one?

    He is actually correct. Estrogen will not raise beyond standard unless you take testosterone really high. Unfortunately this is the standard protocol used by conventional doctors. Raise testosterone to the low end of normal and screw you.

    Deal with a TRT clinic. They will give you everything you need to thrive as a man and feel young again.

    I have been reading alot and checking out some TRT clinics. Anyone know any around the spokane, wa. area. I found a good one in seattle that charges $20-$40/ week with labs included, does that sound about normal? I appreciate the advice. This axiron makes me nervous when it comes to transferance to my wife. Put it on, wait 3 min to dry, wait 2 hours and wash to have contact with my wife, that shit is messed up...Alot of hassle to be doing for a long time..

    Finally got an appointment with an endo at the end of November. In the meantime, I am running a cycle with my perscribed Axiron, 2 pills ed of Halo Plex, 1 pill Ed of Cyanostane, 2 pumps ed of Formeron. I also take 2 pills ed of taurine to keep back pumps down, fish oil to help with my joints. Awesome cycle. My strength is through the roof, vascularity is better every day, have gained 4 lbs of muscle in the last 2 weeks. Is there anything else that I am missing or does that sound decent?

    I had to explain esters, HCG, Arimidex and all that to my doctor. He admitted he didnt understand it. Just explain it to him. If he doesnt give it to you, knock him out

    hi, as you are new to Trt, i think it would be better for you to know the complete scenario or levels of treatment of TRT. Also I would say before using any med, or before taking any medicine it would be better to get information about it. The As Trt treatment is to be taken only on advice. So i think it would be better if you get better doctor who can direct for proper medication.
