Any Dr.'s in here or maybe you played one on tv?

Recently had some blood work done and I have some levels that are low.
B-12 about a third as needed
D-3 was almost gone.
Testosterone was half of what she likes to see.

I have to give myself shots and I just can't do it Two a week. B-12 and testosterone. (1each.)
B-12 is one cc
Test is one cc as well of 200mg's per dose

Wife has been giving me the shots. Any advice so that maybe I can do on my own?

I think my low levels were caused by a med I was on. She took me off it and I feel much better.
Info on me: 6'1" 190 pounds
White male. Physically fit.
No family history of illness note worthy

Previous med I attribute to my weight gain. I gain 30 pounds in last 2 years while on Zoloft for anxiety.

Test injections won't help get your test levels up it will just shut you down more. I assume you're old enough to be doing HRT (steroids) with minimal risk. If the Dr wanted to boost your natural test levels you may have been given HCG injections ( real HCG ) & you may still if steroids aren't gonna be a permanent solution.

Ax the Zoloft and learn to manage your stress and anxiety in a better way, IMO. Antidepressants are awful, awful drugs and entirely over-prescribed.

At 38 you should be fine & 200mg a week is fairly low. It usually takes a couple weeks to feel this form of test kick in but it lasts a couple weeks after your last injection too. If you were doing 500mg or more per week you could really blow up but at 200mg you will probably feel like your constantly on Viagra. As for injecting you probably need a 1.5" 23g needle & do it in the upper outer but cheek. You won't hardly feel it & after you get past the first it's a piece of cake. Also alternate injection sites.

Been off it a month. Taking something different now that seems to work very well.

Wish I could manage my anxiety w/o meds but I don't think it's possible.
Ie: I lie in bed and do the next days work in my head 100 times while trying to go to sleep

Rooms full of crowed people I become very anxious and have the feeling I need to be out of there.

What do you mean blow up?

Pharmacy gave me 20 guage needles. I saw them and said hell no!
Picked up some 25 guage 1" needles and been getting shot in place you described.

I will look in to the needles you suggested. The 25's take a little time to get meds in my body.

What's opinion on the b-12?

Testosterone is a steroid & comes in quite a few varieties. Some work quicker but require more injections. Some like cyp take longer to kick in but require less injections. The word Steroids is used in a very broad sense because there are many many types & testosterone is número uno when it comes to them. By "blow up" I meant get bigger & stronger. If you work out you will probably see some pretty modest gains in strength & mass in a fairly quick period of time. Not sure about the B-12 injection but if you can do the test it should be no problem. I'm sure it's a smaller needle much easier to load & inject. The thigh would probably be a good spot for it.
