I just received my new blood tests back. I was injecting 17-18ml E3D and taking .25mg of liquidex a week EOD for about two weeks prior to my tests. My E2 was 39 when I started the liquidex and was 20 per the blood test. I guess I'm a over responder when it comes to AIs. The test was also taken the day of my next injection but prior to the shot. It looks like I could afford to go up a bit on my dose.
If my total t was 375 on the morning of my next injection what do you think my peak is?
Thanks 3%. I'm thinking the same thing. However, I originally started at 60mg a week and had to slowly increase the dose. When I tried 100mg a week it really increased my anxiety and I felt like crap. My body just couldn't handle the initial increase in T. So I have been slowly increasing as I get other things under control.

I've got everything pretty well dialed in myself now. But I would consider one thing - DHEA - it's cheap and for me at least it has increased my feeling of well being. My numbers started dropping after I went on shots. Last test showed 96(45-345) from 196 initially. I've just recently begun taking 100mg/day.
I don't know, could be placebic, but it sure doesn't hurt.
Thanks KSman. I'm injecting E3D 17-18mg. I've been doing this for the past 3 weeks. Prior to that I was injecting twice a week but switched to E3D to reduce the peaks/troughs and hopefully lower E2. Since I'm not doing HCG I might try the pregnenolone. Thanks agian.
Thanks. Would switching to an EOD injection schedule be better since I'm probably metabolizing the T fairly quick? For example, 18 hours after injection my total t was 980 and then 375 on day of next injections. I'm currently injecting E3Ds.
There is potential to reduce E2 clearance in the liver. You will have to wait and see.
Wellbutrin is now a generic. Does not rewire your brain or kill libido. Might be worth a try. Increases dopamine and that can improve mood. If you need a sleep aid, trazodone works well, no next day drag over when dosed right, also improves mood, very inexpensive, 90 days for $10.

I am also a fast metabolizer. I inject something every day. 40mg T EOD and 125IU HCC EOD. I am feel much better on this protocol. Much more even. That put me at 550 total T and towards the top of the range for free T. I am also reducing my AI as this protocol has made managing E2 much easier.
OKay, well I recently switched from a low dose of celexa (10mg) to 20mg of prozac about 6 weeks ago. So far the only thing I have noticed is an increase in anxiety and I feel numb. I think the prozac is really jacking up my cortisol levels but solely basing htis off how I feel and no blood work.
So, I'm starting to wean myself back off prozac and will see if I can go without any meds.
Just curious if anybody ever experienced the same thing when on prozac. One thing I was concerned about was an increase in my E2 but thatd didn't happen according to my last blood work.
