Testosterone cypionte intervals

Sep 30, 2008

I had a response from Mr. Vergel regarding the interval of testosterone from 14 to 10 days because of a drop of in a sense of well-being taking 200 mg every 14 days. I had moved it to every 10 days with improvement and eliminating the problem (200mg q10 days). He had asked me to get a level on the 13th day, assuming I was on the 14 day schedule. Two things: I am not an HIV patient, only chronic pain patient, and should I not get the level on the day before a scheduled 10th day injection to see if it is not above the 500 nanograms per deciliter level? Thanks, D. Huntley

Response from Mr. Vergel

The 500 nanogram per deciliter total testosterone blood level value is mid range of normal and shown in one small study to improve quality of life. HIV positive or negative, it does not matter. Nelson
