Manoftheworld, you are absolutely correct that test e because of an extra carbon is "potentially" more test per mg. When i was typing this out i had just finished discussing use of prop for daily use for TRT and it was still stuck on my mind. Truthfully the difference between cypionate and enanthate or so minimal that it is a toss up. As far as using a combo cruise of 100/100 it would only make sense to use what ever compound to compliment the test regimen you are planning to use. If you are planning to do 50mg of test cyp twice a week, then you might as well do tren e twice a week as well since you are injecting twice and it will give you more steady levels throughout.
Halflife, that is great that you are in D.O. school. It takes long hours and a lot of dedication to pull through. Male hormone replacement therapy is just starting. It is becoming more and more main stream. Up to a few years ago, it was esoteric and physicians at the most would only prescribe Androgel etc and would barely ever prescribe injectable forms of test. Now it is more and more acceptable and understood science. Endocrinology is a great field, but you must get through internal medicine first to get there. Good luck with your USMLE 2 and 3
Torque, I am a fan of certain peptides. I use triptorelin in my practice to kick start patient's natural test production. I can gauge and see what their body is even capable of producing. If i can get them over 500 total test then i am happy and we can avoid TRT. But if despite use of triptorelin their body just physically cant produce the needed test then TRT is next option. Tesamorelin (Egrifta) was just approved by FDA for HIV patients to increase lean body mass because it directly increases HGH and hence IGF-1. There is definite science behind the growth hormone release factors such as ipamorelin and tesamorelin etc. I just personally believe that from what i currently see, most people are just not using enough to fully benefit. Traditionally with Sermorelin it was though 100mcg two or three times a day would be sufficient, but for example the use of tesamorelin is 2mg daily. That is almost 10x the dose of Ipamorelin that i see currently used. This also gives credence to the people that are using high dose Ipamorelin in the mg range and getting significantly better results. Another reason i believe that the current dosages are not high enough is because during the Tesamorelin studies, the subjects actually had increase levels of IGF-1. This is significant because there is this believe that peptides do not increase plasma IGF-1 and only increase intracellular levels. This obviously is not true if you look at the tesamorelin subjects because with the 2mg daily dose their plasma IGF-1 definitely increased.
As far as Clomid and tamoxifen goes for PCT i have gone in great details in one of the first couple of pages. But i prefer toremifene to tamoxifen simply because it is just a better drug in all aspects. I recommend a long and steady PCT as in 4 weeks. I like the clomid and tore to be started at 100mg daily each with subsequent tapering at week 3 and 4. But for more detail refer to the earlier post i made where i went in to detail. You have to realize that some of the questions about long term damage is just not ethically correct because no study would put patients on the levels used for bodybuilding indefinitely. All we can go by is from short runs on animals and even humans and the damages they cause and all we can do is speculate the rest. There is absolutely no question that long term supra physiologic doses of AAS will cause health problems. We can fight it, argue against it, deny it, slams our fists on the table but it is what it is. Hope that answers your questions.
