I'm currently injecting 80mg per week intramuscularly (40mg on Tuesday evenings and 40mg on Saturday mornings) alternating between the left and right glutes. This protocol keeps my blood tests in the 600-800 ng/dl range. I feel very good at this dosage and don't see any reason to go higher or lower at this point.
Age: 56
Height: 5' 8"

45 mg test cyp IM twice per week

80 mg IM e3d with .25 of adex. Levels in the 1100s. E2 in the 20s. I'm happy with it.

Gimmeabreak: how much are you on? Your dose you have listed looks a little off...

This is identical to my protocol, except that I inject Sat evenings and Wed mornings.      When do you do your blood tests?     The last 2 tests (Tue AM, and Wed AM) still showed my total in the 1000 ng/dl range.

 I know it sounds low  but you are reading it correctly. My doctor wanted to go very conservative because I was switching from  compounded cream which had my RBC count a little high.  I'm going to the doctors tomorrow to find out what my blood work read six weeks post starting injections.  I'm assuming by how I feel that my dosage will go up.  I've never slept so much in my entire life as I am right now.

.25 mg twice a week?? That's 1/800th of a mL. Interesting dose...
Let's assume the period doesn't belong there. Even at 25 mg 2x per week is just enough to make you feel like dookie.
I'd find another doctor if it were me. That's not a nice or even safe dose.

Study on dose to test level. The people in that study at 50/week had test levels around 300. That's no fun. Been there. Felt that.
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/11701431/

Study on why Id go as far as calling it unsafe.

Good luck. Let us know what your levels are at tomorrow.

Inject .325ml or 65mg E3D in glutes alternating sides using 29G 1/2 insulin syringe. No AI or HCG but will discuss with my doc about possibly starting low dose HCG again.

Current labs:

TT: 700
FT: 20
E2 (Sensitive Test): 35

I usually have my blood drawn on a Friday morning, so about 2.5 days after my last injection on Tuesday evenings. So it's probable that I peak at over 800 ng/dl on Wednesdays and Thursdays and have dropped a little by Friday mornings. Either way, I feel pretty good at this level, so I plan to stick with it as long as things keep going well.

  So I just got back from getting my results of my current blood work. Good news is my RBC and hematocrit are all back in the normal range! That's switching from cream to injections.

As expected, my testosterone is still lower than my natural levels.
Total testosterone = 330 ng/mL
Free testosterone = 277 pmol/L

And unfortunately my Doctor Who loves to be conservative has only bumped me up to 80 mg per week.

But I've requested to come back in six weeks so I can increase dosage again if my level still come in low.
