TRT questions

I am 31 years old and wanted to get on TRT. I went to 4 doctors and they said no, went to the 5th guy and he said yes. He put me on 150mg a week of TRT, he says that is a max dosage. I am adding 50mg a week to it on my own so 200mg a week total. My question is will my body get used to the higher dosage where I have to keep upping it or is that just bro science?

What was your total T and free T before you decided to start doing TRT? I'm curious what your numbers were before you started down this path. Most TRT doctors start patients on 100mg per week of Test Cyp. 150mg per week would be considered the midpoint, and is also a very common dosage. 200mg per week is also a common dosage, but it is considered to be the upper limit. Anything over 200mg per week of Test Cyp is generally considered not to be TRT. You may want to consider running the 150mg per week for 3 months and just see how you feel on it. Give that dosage a chance to work before you starting adding more Test. When I was using the 150mg per week dosage, what benefited me the most was breaking it up into 2 shots. I would inject 75mg every 3.5 days and I did NOT need arimidex at that dosage. My total T was coming back about 1000, and the lab I use has a reference range of 300-1200 so I was well towards the upper range. Breaking your dosage up into 2 shots per week, will help reduce the need for AI. You really need a large sample size of time at your current dosage before you start going higher. I would take the 150mg as prescribed by your doctor, and then do follow up labs in 3-4 months. TRT takes time. It's not like cycling where you are taking 500mg of Test a week and the results are immediate. The 150mg a week is a good dosage though, you could potentially end up feeling really good, and you can maintain long term health when you stay in that range. Once you find your optimal range where your bloodwork is good and you also feel good, then you know you found the sweet spot.
 
200mg a week is not TRT
This varies greatly from doctor to doctor. It also depends on the bloodwork. Some patients will be running 1500 Total T at that dosage whereas other patients may only be running 700-900. It effects everyone differently. Usually the determination of what is actually TRT or not is determined by the results of bloodwork or the preference of the particular doctor.
