For the past 3 months I’ve been heating up a small amount of water in a coffee mug for 90 seconds in the microwave then putting my test vials in there while I prep for injection. My question is, will heating my testosterone and other compounds repeatedly cause degradation of the medication?

Thanks

dunno, don't heat them.
IMO - If you need to heat test or any other substance it's no good.

Even pharmacy testosterone crystallizes/crashes sometimes.

From my understanding, in the package insert, the pharmaceutical companies say to heat up the testosterone if this happens.

I run mine under warm water for a bit but only to thin out the oil.
I don't need to but I find it flows a bit better since I draw with 25ga.

What are you trying to achieve by getting it so hot?

Even deca can crash if sitting around for a very long time, but it's hard to tell as it can crash like tren a, the powder sits at the bottom.

A good practice is to swirl the vial, you see a vortex it's crashed.

I have Bunn coffee maker but use Instant ground coffee so I just use it for instant hot water, But I warm the vial up for 10 seconds then place it in a mug of the hot coffee water and give it good shake. haven't had an issue.

Heating would likely lead to some degradation. How much would be a guess for me as i have seen no studies on the issue. I don't heat mine unless it crashes. Which doesn't really happen to gear i use/make.

100F-110F water bath for 30 seconds or so should handle it just fine, no need to really hit this stuff with high temp anything. Place your vial in a ziploc, submerge in water, wait 30 seconds, swirl a bit, done.
