Any of the guys here tried this approach?
Did it work?
Me neither - so far I havent found the right med for my ADD (inattentive subtype), but your post made me think back to my experience with testo in the past (over 10 years ago)
...your post is from February, so now (July) you should have experienced a few things on yourself.
I felt very good while my testosterone level was higher, really something a man should experience himself, hard to describe.
The problem with (direct) testo-doses is it creates a whole bunch of dilemmas after a while...the biggest one is that your own testo production goes down...and you have to do/take a lot of other stuff to get it back up and reduce "withdrawel" symptoms.
Your doc is just testing I suppose, he surlely doesnt intend to prescribe it lifelong!?
If you take it too long, or without the appropriate other substances, you open the famous "can of worms" :
"...problem with testosterone steroids is that they aromatize, or turn into estrogen, in the body. When the body has too much estrogen it begins to take on female characteristics gynocomastia, water retention, fat gain, loss of sex drive and testicular shrinkage are all most certain side effects of taking testosterone and letting it aromatize in the body."
Would be interesting to read your experience so far!
