Happy to see you back Cronos. The human psyche is intriguing. I actually find myself avoiding this forum, to some extent, because it brings sadness back to the surface from Peakís passing. The fact that two of my fondest ďforum palsĒ (Peak and Dr Crisler) passed within a year of each other has had a real impact on me for sure. I get it.

As an FYI, you can always follow-up early including early labs if things are amiss. Further, you can always follow-up directly with me if needed...though Iím typically booked out a little farther than the rest of my team. All the best my friend.

A few anecdotes from over at EM:

Blackhawk
I too started at too high a dose when starting injections, 150mg/week dosed E3D. It was living Hell having to reduce dose and go through withdrawal getting it right from there over the course of many months. In retrospect if I was to do it again, I would have started on about 80mg/week dosed every 2 or 3 days, and if inadequate boost 2mg EOD at 6-8 week intervals with labs at each stage until I felt good.[R]

CoastWatcher
Dropped from 70mg every 3.5 days to 60mg every 3.5 days to 16mg every day (140mg total per week to 120mg total every week to 112mg total every week). Putting aside improved lab results, I felt better each and every time the dose was lowered. I am where I should be.[R]

Golfboy307
I am 5'10" 155 lbs and I get my total T in the 800 range with about 100mg per week split into 3 doses. Anything above that and I don't feel great. It will take months not weeks to tweak your protocol and achieve optimum results. But it is worth it. [R]

Sorry been busy busy. Well for the time being I think I found a sweet spot by timing things a little differently but sticking with the protocol as well. So still injecting 70mg twice a week sunday/Wednesday and hcg anastrozole Tuesday/Thursday. Because of my job generally I'm going until at least midnight if not a little later so I have started taking my anastrozole around that time. Midnight 1am something like that. It has proved to really help me out. Everything seems to be trending well for me doing that.

I still agree with you Cataceous though. Definitely going to ask about lowering dose at follow up depending on what my labs say but I have a feeling I know what they're going to show. Plus I just don't like depending on an AI. Would rather be on Testosterone and HCG alone without the AI.

Here lately when I have had time I have gone back through a lot of Peaks old threads and man did he have some great insights. He really did want to help people. He gave us so much of his time and I do miss him.

I would like to say though thank you and your team so much for doing what you do. You really are a god send for a lot of us. So again thank you.

As far as following up early I think I figured it out for right now as I put in the above earlier post. I just have to take my AI earlier before I "peak" haven't changed doing anything from what I was prescribed because I don't like going rogue. But making sure I take it earlier has helped a lot.
