    T4 helps me sleep

    Anybody know really why an hour after I take my 50ug dose of T4 I sleep like a baby? I often wake at 2-5 and if I take it then, an hour later I sleep blissfully.

    I Haven’t Slept in 4 years. What to Do?

    I mean, I haven’t slept in 4 years without taking drugs. I’ve been on TRT for 4 years and I think that is why I cannot sleep well. When I started taking TRT I can only get about 4 hours of sleep.

    Melatonin gives me insomnia?

    Used to work but now at best go to sleep for a few hours then wake. Even at lower doses. Seem to get this from any form of magnesium recently too. Used to love zma. Take theanine at that point. Takes awhile to take effect but at least I can get up for work. Anyone have any thoughts on this. TIA

    Ambien Zolpidem

    Is Ambien categorized or considered as benzodiazepine? Some say it is and some say it is similar to. Can someone clarify this. Does Ambien interact with TRT, interfere with testosterone/anastrozole while I am on TRT? I feel really groggy, sluggish next day when I am on Ambien.

    Questions for men on anastrozole who have crashed their E2 Levels

    I have a few questions for those who have crashed their e2 levels. How low did your E2 levels go? How long did it take to recover? Did anything help you raise your levels?

    Looking to make slight change to TRT/HCG protocol; need advice

    I am hoping this will be the last post I make about my current set of side effects. My last dr. appt basically gave me the option of increasing T, increasing HCG or just keeping things to the same. I would prefer to keep my general dosage the same and maybe just change when I take it so that I...
