    Changing Doctors

    I have been seeing my family Doc for HRT. The only problem is that he is only giving me 1- 200cc shot per month. I found a friend who has a Doc that treating him for HRT and his Doctor prescribes a 10ml at a time with 3 months worth of refills. I have an appointment on Monday with my friends Doc to get set up with him. I was curious though if I go in, should I tell the new Doc about what my Doc has been prescribing to me. Or just not say any thing and tell him my "symptoms" and have him re-test my levels?

    Just be upfront with the new doc right away, dont waste time hinting about your end goals. After a few visits he might not give you want you want and you wasted your time. This way if he doesn't work out you can move on to a doc that will assist you with your goals.

    I dont think your levels with be that low, since you are already taking some test into your system.

    Maybe you could just tell him about your doc not wanting to adjust your dose, and that you are seeking another doc to treat your symptoms since you are not satisfied with your current treatment from your doc.

    That way he knows what to expect on your bloodwork, unless he could maybe use your last doc bloodwork and go by that?

    tell the new doc that you want to self administer and you will likely get the same script regardless of your dose..the vials come in 10ml and are usually refillable every month...i get really pissed when some pharmacists do the math and question the refills...i just move to a pharmacy that wants my business and doesnt get in my business

    My last 200cc shot was about 3 weeks ago. So I should be good to go on Monday when I see the new Doctor!

    Thanks for the advice guys!
