What happened your first week is that the exogenous test you added with the TD supplemented your natural test production so your total test was: T = Testim + body production. Now your total T is likely higher than your internal body max threshold, so your body sees the high T in your bloodstream, and tells your body you don't need to produce any more test naturally. So T = Testim, as your "body production" levels go toward zero. When this occurs, most docs will up the dose fo the Testim (or Androgel, or whatever), so that your levels are high enough for you to feel like you're in the "sweet spot."
Yeah, I know that might happen, but ANYTHING is an improvement over how I was feeling!
I didn't expect to feel better so soon at all. I thought it would take a week or so. Which just goes to show that I may have been way below what my body really needs to function normally. So I'm hoping when it all settles out in the next week or so that I'm left with my normal mood and energy. I'm just on the 5 mg dose right now, and the doc said I could go up to 10, but my insurance will only pay for it for 30 days at a time, and if I double the dose I'd run out in 15.
