Guys,

I would really appreciate it if everyone on TRT answered this poll.  I am curious how prevalent compounding is in this community.
If you are on medications or have a medical condition, always check with your doctor first before making any lifestyle changes or taking new supplements. Yes, low T and E.D. are usually medical conditions.  There are potential risk with HRT:  http://www.peaktestosterone.com/testosterone_risks.aspx.

What would be the purpose of compounded injectible testosterone cypionate? The stuff from big pharma is cheap, at least where I live.
Age: 35
178 lbs 5'8''

Current Treatment: 50 mg testosterone cypionate IM, twice a week
Low T Symptoms: Chronic pelvic pain, and other neuropathic pain.  Mild anxiety, low energy and low motivation
Meds: Amitriptyline (for pain, not depression), Clonidine (for sleep, not blood pressure)

Mainly for guys like myself who are paying out of pocket since many insurance companies are hesitant to cover T.  My pharmacy compounded cypionate with sesame oil runs about $25 a month with dosage of 100 mg/wk.

I'm not pushing for anything here Boxcar.  I just want a survey as to how prevalent compounding usage is among us. 

Also, please notice that I asked about HCG as well.  Correct me if I am wrong, but you can't pull coupons for that off of GoodRx or whatever the site is, correct?

Some guys react to the oil or other ingredients in big pharma test. cyp. So by compounding you could get test. cyp in sesame oil instead of cottonseed oil.

Also many low T clinics require you to buy you meds from them (they won't give you a script to take to your own pharmacy) so they will use a compounding pharmacy to supply it.

And I also would like  to know if anyone is using compounded creams/gels.  I know cujet is for example, but he's the only one that comes to mind.

I added one more above as well, referring to "scrotal cream"

Boxcar:

I do have one comment.  As far as I know, the big pharma injectible testosterones are significantly more expensive than compounded injectibles unless you have a ooupon.  They charge a much higher price than is necessary for these hormones and then you have to a) get a coupon or b) sign up for one of their Patient Assitance programs.  There is no reason that one should have to jump through a bunch of hoops to get a good price imo.  I know a lot of us have investments in large pharmaceutical companies or work for them directly or indirectly, but the prices out of the box for some of these hormones are just madness imo.

I hope that every one of you who is using compounded testosterone will call their Senator/Congressman and/or write the FDA as outlined in this article:

http://www.peaktestosterone.com/forum/index.php?topic=10499.0

Please don't put it off.  Read the article and you'll see what I am talking about.

I use a compounded testosterone topical (but the answer is "no" to all the questions in the survey).

Well, I shouldn't do this midstream, but I added that option above.
