I have very low testosterone that was tested below 100.My doctor has me injecting Depo 1ml every 2 weeks.It seems like its not doing as good as it was when he first started giving them to me.I wish he would up the dose because with the right amount it would be great for my well-being.He act as if he dont want to.I wish a doctor online could prescribe Depo to me and give me dose i need,but i guess that cant happen?!?! So im asking you what i sould do?

Brief Answer: You can take testosterone 1000 mg every 3 month. Detailed Answer: Dear sir , Though you have not specified the cause of low testosterone , if you are still low with the present dose definitely you need to take a higher dose. You have market preparations available with 1000mg depot which you can take every 3 months. You can let me know how you are doing with it. I would definitely not be able to write a prescription here hence you can discuss about my views with your treating doctor. Perhaps he/she can write you the prescription. Regards
