    Ummm... what? You don't 'cycle' HRT, bro. You're on it for life, and PCT doesn't work with someone who has a non-functioning HTPA.

    Threadstarter,

    The average cost of a 10ml vial of Testosterone Cypionate 200mg/ml is 125 dollars. Needles, syringes, and alcohol swabs will total about 30 bucks but will last you 6 months or more. So if insurance doesn't cover it and you're on a protocol that calls for 125mg testosterone per week (hypathetical)... it'll run you about 37 dollars USD. Not bad.

    It's the blood tests and pituitary MRI that are expensive.

    Blood tests (vary) - 500 dollars approx.

    Pituitary MRI - 2300 dollar, in my area of the country

    This is interesting - I have found that AG clinics are all over the map on costs - I have two that so far are off one another by a factor of 2! This to me indicates that they are not based on any sort of real cost or typical business model.

    The only good news is that with 2 tries I was able to find a clinic that is able to beat the prices listed in this thread, but I still have no idea how much I should pay.

    Any sugestions on finding real prices? I think it bizarre - it is easy to find the competitive price info of almost anything except medical services/supplies. Nice gig those MDs have.

    Does the "no source" rule apply on the web site when it comes to prescriptions?

    It seems to me that is neither helpful nor relevant to this forum.

    The bro was asking about cost (which is hugely inflated btw) w/ a reference that ins. won't cover it. What other choice does he have cept Homebrews OR getting busted/screwed over?

    Sure, but the cost of powder, a kit, and syringes U can get a freakin YEAR'S supply compared to few months worth going ur route. Homebrews ALWAYS will win out over pharms.

    Does anyone out there have information on competitive/comparison pharmacy prices for legitimate TRT/HRT and possibly HGH?

    I have found pharmacy prices for 200mg/week TRT to be about $40/week including supplies, although I have found them to go as high as more than twice that for the exact same prescriptions. Is that reasonable, or should I continue to look for better pricing for my prescription? At what point should I consider that I have found as good a price as I will get for my legitimate pharmacy prescription?

    And I fail to understand why you continue to spam this thread when your comments are entirely inappropriate for this forum.

    It's not spam it's like paying someone to teach U squat when U can do the same thing urself for NOTHING. .

    Why not just do it urself? I can tell u after speaking w/ several M.D. Endrocrinologists this shit ain't complicated to do. Just watch the sides and use a long chain ester and that's basically ALL there is to it.

    Ummm, you don't cycle HRT? Everyone that is using HRT is on for life? Everyone being treated for hypogonadism has a non-functioning HTPA?

    Pull your head out of your ass, man and read more.

    You are not only pompous, you are abrasive and stupid.

    Ass has three letters, not four.

    Which diploma, BS, MS or PhD?

    Because English is a proper noun it is capitalized.

    Your insults are as accurate as your advice.
