    Question Split dose (2x weekly) and blood draw timing

    About 4 weeks ago I went to 2x weekly split dose of Cyp. My doctor told me to always inject weekly so he can test at the trough. He does not know I am doing 2x weekly (50%). When I was on .75mls/150mg per week I was finding I would feel crummy by the 5th day. After splitting the dose I feel more consistent.

    How should I handle my blood work draw?



    Thanks.

    Test at trough just like before. I imagine you're doing one morning and one night so just get tests on the morning before injecting.

    Thank you! But isn't the split dose going to skew what he is looking for? He said that the Cyp lasts about 7 days.

    Injecting twice weekly will cause you to have lower peaks and higher troughs as your blood levels should be more stable on twice weekly splitting dose ( less test being injected ) as oppose to once weekly at 150mg you would have a higher peak at that dose during the first few days and 7 days later before next injection a lower trough reading. By splitting your dose and injecting more frequently you will attain more consistent levels and a better overall trough reading.

    If anything it'll appear on paper that you're doing pretty with good numbers, if you time it right. Assuming you're E3.5D Mon/Thurs, I would ONLY test on the Mon AM at say 8 and then do your shot. Probably the best way to not have any surprises in your lab results for the trough vs a weekly setup/

    Wll this be your first follow-up test? Do you have trough values from your time injecting weekly? If so, we're they solid or less than stellar? You are absolutely on target in modifying your protocol as you did, I only raise these questions in the event you may surprise yourself and your doctor with the results.
