    How many of you are on Diuretics for water retention onTRT?

    How many of you guys are on Diuretics for face bloat/water retention issues on TRT? Assuming Estradiol is within a good range. What is your experience and what did you use? Are there any that dont require a perscription? Do you take it everyday forever? Anyone increased there dosage from every 3.5 days to EOD? ( I think ED would be too much for me) Is water retention porportional to amount of T dose? For example if one lowered dose from 200mg to 100 mg would there be a big difference in water retention? Can this be avoided all together by taking a diuretic and not lowering dose (if one feels good on that dose)?

    If I drink two cups of coffee and restrict carbs,water retention is controlled pretty well.

    I've never had water retention, but a certain percent of men on TRT do get water retention.

    I wonder how much is age related, or just unhealthy habits.

    I'm on the younger side and at or below 12% body fat (visible abs). Workout 6 days a week intensely and I noticed the bloat is more in my face/jawline. Drinking more than enough water as well. Sodium intake is regulated and reasonable (cook all my own food).

    I have never heard of a single person on diuretics while on TRT, unless they were on them before TRT. Honestly I think this is one of the first mentions of diuretics on this site.

    You're right JDS, barely a mention around here of Diuretics.

    Yeah diuretics are not a drug people should be asking about here, they are much too complicated for lay people to advise on.

    If you feel like you need diuretics, you need a doctor. Fluid balance and electrolytes aren't things you should be playing around with, it's very easy to cause massive issues resulting in bodily harm.

    Besides, if you actually need diuretics, you probably have a serious health condition that CANNOT be managed without a doctor, or maybe even more than one.

    I agree re: diuretics...who the hell wants to add that to the mix?! However, I still think water retention is responsible for a lot of the overuse of AIs so I think this issue needs more investigation.
