I’m prescribed 100 mgs every 10 days.
In your case it's not so much the 100 mg being low but the frequency. Typically most inject weekly, twice a week or more often micro dosing.

Correct. I actually do 1/2 cc weekly so 125 mgs weekly.

I've never heard that expression used for test. Growth maybe. My labs are the same dose for dose no matter what type of test I use.
Human grade bought thru a pharmacy with a scrip. My apologies for not being clear sometimes I’m posting on the run ;- )

That seems really high for an avg of about 87.5 mg/wk TC, maybe daily dosing but not EOD. Are you taking anything else with that, ND or HCG for example?

Have you had your blood test on this dose? what are you at day 10? 150mg a week put me at around 700 at day 7.

Same here, Bhasin's studies showed that 125 mg/wk, at day 7 had blood levels about 500 - 600. Having said that, everyone is different. Some guys do really well at 500, at my age 1000 makes me feel like 500 did when I was younger. Funny thing is, older guys are supposed to metabolize T slower, thus require lower dosing (Bhasin's studies).

Good info. I currently do 150mg/week on a 4 day schedule with slin pins. I'd imagine i'm around 1000 in the first 4 days.

If I do 120 a week and get in the 800s will 200 mg a week place me over a thousand? I hear maybe it will be like doing 120 since it lowers shbg.

Usually my doc just lets me know when he wants to run bloodwork so not much advance notice or planning. Last timehe checked it I was up in the 700range but I honestly don’t know what day I was onafter the injection.

300 mg/wk at day 7, total T is about 1350, so 200/wk would likely yield about 1000 at day 7 and probably about 1500 right after the injection. The SHBG lowering effect occurs at about 300 mg/wk, there would probably be a little decrease in SHBG at 200 but the difference in the % free is only about 1% going from 125/wk to 300/wk to 600/wk. Really not that much. Interestingly in older guys, SHBG didn't change in response to dosing from 25 to 600 mg/wk. In older guys the % free was slightly greater as the total dose was increased. Also older guys vs younger, the same total weekly dose of T yielded about 1.4 - 1.5 higher total T blood levels in older guys. But again, you have to test this based on your metabolism of the drug. The other question is, do you notice a difference with a T at 1000 vs 700, if not no need to waste the T. You're just driving up Hb and HCT without any additional benefits.

Thank you. The doctor had put me on 200 weekly but I didn't want to go that high until now doing 200 for the first time and see if I feel better and better gains.
