Would like to change my vote to cyp.

In my bumpy TRT journey, I've found that gels and creams work initially, and then the skin stops absorbing.  Clomid also works initially, but its downhill after a month or so, ending up worse than where I started. 

On cyp now, with HCG and maybe anastrozole if next labs show high E2.

Hmmm....

This is all database driven, but I'd have to go in there and tweak the underlying tables to alter your vote.  Not sure that's worth it.  But duly noted...

I currently inject 25mg of Sustanon 250 subq in the upper thighs twice per week. Previously, I was injecting 3 times per week but this raised my hemocrit level too high.

Age 76 years. Started Viagra at 59 years, then Cialis. Developed serious eye problems in 2010 immediately after increasing dose. Ordered to never use PDE5i again.
5 years on TRT, starting  with Androgel, then compounded 2% propionate gel then 5% propionate gel, then Sustanon 250 IM 3-weekly, then Sustanon 250 subq. 0.1ml x 3pw. Recently changed the subq protocol to shallow IM in the quads.
Arimidex 0.5mg EoD. Stopped TRT in April 2015 but started again in November due to decline in libido. Still taking:
Prazosin 3x5mg ED
Nebivolol 5mg x2 ED
Gave up Tamsulosin as I didn't like retrograde ejaculation. No negative effects since stopping.

I have been on subq Sustanon 250 for about 18 months. I started out injecting 0.15ml EoD but, after a few months, that took my TT and FT and RBC levels above the normal range. I reduced the dose to 0.1ml EoD and, after about 3 months, those same levels dropped to just within the normal range. Even so, I can't say that this form of therapy (or any other) has made any significant impact on my severe ED. So why do I continue? Well, I suppose ensuring that my T levels are optimum is at least a reference point for experimenting with other treatments such as exercise, DHEA, Pregnenolone, prazosin, Proviron, citrulline, etc., etc., etc. The quest goes on.

Pretty amazing how many guys we have on HCG Monotherapy / Clomid and also how many we have with very long cypionate / enanthate protocols.  (Feel sorry for the latter guys.)

By the way, I will be really curious how much this bumps up your free testosterone.  Well, and your total for that matter...

Wow, that is an insanely high dose.  Have you had any follow up labs yet?

It's 1.5CC and I was told 1CC was 200mg so I figure the extra CC is 100 extra mg. Tomorrow I'm going back down to 200mg per injection. I was told to go up the extra 1/2CC to see if that would kickstart me since I haven't felt anything from it yet. One of the guys advising me said go up an extra 1/2CC for about 3 weeks then back down to the regular 1CC. So I guess for the majority of the time since I started it's actually 200mg per dose.

No I haven't had any follow up labs.

You may not be feeling any positice effects because your dose of 200mg/wk could be too high for you.  That's a very large dose and the vast majority of men don't require a dose that high to replace their hormone levels. 

If your dose is too high, your E2 will also be too high, so you won't feel good.  Elevated E2 causes some guys to feel worse than they did prior to TRT.
