    An Unusual Source of Anxiety

    I recently discovered a surprising source of anxiety for me and wanted to share my experience so it may help others. It took me a month or so to figure out that over the counter CoQ10 was causing me recurring bouts of anxiety and tachycardia as well as episodic insomnia. I was really surprised...

    T4 helps me sleep. Anyone else?

    Most nights I wake after a good nap. Last night about 2:30 woke right up. Maybe most people wake but return to sleep quickly perhaps. I was up until 4ish. Theanine wasn't enough to go back down. I decided to take T4(50ug) at that time. Takes about an hour I guess but woke sleeping like a baby...

    Fish Oil and SHBG

    I can't find the pubmed study at the moment, but it's all over Google if searched. Apparently, fish oil lowers SHBG. I'm wondering how drastic this effect could be and if cutting my EPA/DHA dose from 2.4g to 1.2g may let it rise. I've read on here that guys with low SHBG have harder times...

    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.
