It’s heart wrenching to hear stories like yours. To lend some insight, I have most of my patients on estrogen blockers as well. This is something that I find necessary even though we replace to the normal range only. We recommend against GHRP-6 and all growth hormone treatment, so I cant’ speak directly to that. His testosterone dose is higher than what I would start a patient at, but it’s not exorbitant. That, however, is only part of the picture. Proper dosing is dependent upon the observation of how a patient reacts to a dose over time. So, that dose could be entirely too high for him even though I would say it is on the spectrum of normal dosing in general.
I am so glad you started this! My husband started taking testosterone shots from one of those ” male clinics” because his friend told him it would help with his energy level and building muscle. 6 weeks into taking in I noticed behavior changes. Very distant and Argumentative… 8 weeks into it he left me! 15 years of marriage, 3 kids and a great life! He blindsided us and it has ruined us. He has no emotion ( which high T does to people… depletes the oxytocin in the brain. I wish it was more controlled since it is a ” controlled substance” .
