Suggest remedy for anxiety and insomnia after starting dose of TRT
It will take time
Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through.
The shot up T levels have caused the anxiety and depression to flare up. Now even after you have brought down the T levels, still it will take 1-2 months for your symptoms to settle down. It would be wise to continue the same management for this period and if even still you have the symptoms then it would be wise to switch the medicines and try other options like venlafaxine or mirtazapine etc. Testosterone acts by secondary messengers and hence the effect may linger even after the blood levels have settled down.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
If not, you may close the discussion and if possible you may rate the answer for me, so that I get a good feedback.

Yes I agree
60mg is an ideal dose and you may continue on this dose.
This may help in resistant depression but not the anxiety. As suggested earlier, we may wait for a month and if things still dont improve then a change in your psychotropic medicines may be required.

Its a good indication
Yes its a good indication that there are mood swings rather than constant low mood. Yes it takes 1-2 months for the effect to stabilize. However it can be short as well in some cases but on an average it may take this much period.
Its safe to continue Klonopin 1mg for a month and you may even tapper it to 0.5mg afetr 7 days and see if its working fine.
