I am currently prescribed testosterone cypionate and have back pain

Question: I am currently prescribed testosterone cypionate and have back pain and neck pain and joint pain. It has been around for a while and has been from previous injuries and accidents involving breaks, strains, and tears. I seen many articles and videos by doctors saying nandrolone in combination with testosterone can help with back and neck pain and provide injury relief/repair. Is nandrolone effective for what's going on with me at a therapeutic 100mg a week dose and is it safe for the kidneys and liver like other doctors say. Interested in using nandrolone if it is safe as I believe it will help. Please advise as I'm also on testosterone therapy trt

Brief Answer:
Nandrolone is a better candidate

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for using the Ask a Doctor service.

Please be aware that although increasing the testosterone levels is often assumed to facilitate wound healing (by helping in skeletal muscle regeneration), the assumption is not evidence based and there is inadequate data to conclude that such a thing actually happens. Nevertheless, use of anabolic steroids including nandrolone have been shown to improve skeletal muscle regeneration, at least in animal models. So, if you wish to go for it, perhaps it is a better candidate than testosterone.

Please be aware that nandrolone or testosterone both have a large number of safety concerns as well as interactions. Nevertheless, if the situations are carefully considered, nandrolone can be reasonably used. You need to talk to your doctor to check if you have any contraindications. If you do not have any contraindications, it can be safely used.

The only other medication I'm on is invega. Would they're be any contradictions?. I'm assuming not as it is used primarily for sedation.

Brief Answer:
Interactions unlikley

Detailed Answer:
Interactions are unlikely between Invega (Paliperidone) and Nandrolone.

The usual dose is 50 to 100 mg once a month. However, I would insist you not to self-medicate. Your doctor would be able to decide what is right for you.
