Alright. I'm completely lost here and I need some answers. I'm 23 year old male and I have a testosterone level at around 200. I also have Addison's and high reverse t3. androgel/Compounded testosterone gel makes me noticeably more lethargic, tired, and depressed. Depending on how much I take it can come close to making me cry for no reason whatsoever. It's a horrible experience and I don't know why it's causing it. I may also have this effect with shots to some extent. I took hcg for a month and I felt much better. A lot of low testosterone symptoms improved. I had blood work today so we'll see how much it raised my T levels. But why is testosterone causing such horrible results, while the HCG isn't? What is going on? Why is the T completely counterproductive and causing me to basically "crash" and feel horrible. BTW, I think I've started noticing a dramatic drop in Novarel potency near the end of the month... but at the start of the therapy I was waking up with a hard on every morning, which I haven't done in a long... long... time. Something I've never done on Androgel/shots.
