I went to EIGHT doctors before finding one taht knew anything about TRT or even male hormones... that included 3 primary care Docs, 4 urologists and one endocrinologist... so many doctors these days are dunces. Even my current Uro-PA only knows a few basics... do a LOT of your own reading and viewing videos online... you may know a lot more than most Docs... TRT clinics usually know enough, but are expensive...You didn't mention if you are working with a doctor? While its great to get a bunch of suggestions from guys on a forum, you should probably listen to his/her advice first. If it seems like a poor protocol, then its time to double check. Plus, unless you are going rogue, they are the one writing the prescription.
And no, wait at least 6-8 weeks on a dosage before you do testing. It takes awhile for your body to stabilize. Don't mess with dosing based on initial symptom relief (or lack thereof).
