    I checked my BP twice after work today - 120/73 and 120/69 - so I agree it does not appear to be a BP issue even though it feels like one. But I have no idea about kidneys, liver, etc. Everything "seems" OK.

    If this is due to estro as you suggest, that might explain the swollen hands I had the first few days.

    It also means I will probably need a REALLY good PCT.
    Its a good idea to run some estro control while on cycle--even though they say no estrogen conversion--check study-----------------------------------------------The US DEA did in vivo testing with dienolone and boldione (DEA Agreement No. DEA-04-P0007.) Yesterday we reported that the American DEA completed a bill which concludes that DMT, boldione, and dienolone be considered anabolic steroids. The drug agency tested the effects of dienolone, aka 19-nor-4,9(10)-androstadienedione, and boldione, aka 1,4-androstadien-3,17-dione, on rats. The most striking outcome of that study: dienolone is strange stuff.

    The research workers, Alvin Matsumoto and Brett Marck, administered rat implants which delivered steady levels of the steroid hormones, and also gave rats in a control group implants without active substances (placebo). Eight weeks after the operation, the researchers looked at the effects on the animals. Boldione raised the concentration of testosterone in the rats. Could the antibodies that the research workers used for the boldione analogue have been confused with testosterone? (See Diagram below) Dienolone raised the levels of estradiol in the animals. That is logical. Dienolone seems to convert fairly easily to estrogen.



    The concentrations of LH and FSH, the two driving hormones which induce the testes to produce testosterone, were diminished by the administration of both hormones. Remarkably, after the administration of dienolone the weight of the testes increased. This is seen in the figure below.




    Then the researchers tested the anabolic / androgenic properties of the two steroids shown via the sizing of the prostate and the levator ani muscle of the rats, as shown in the diagram below.




    From the results you would think that dienolone was a more powerful anabolic / androgen than boldione. However this was not the case. The above figures are in relation to the relative weights: the weight of the levator ani muscle and the total body weight of the rats. The rats that received dienolone had gained less weight than the other animals, but mainly because they were less willing to eat. Below you see the weight increases of the test animals. The rats who received dienolone had a larger increase in the weight of the prostate and levator ani muscle, which was not surprising. The fact that the rats who were administered dienolone had an enlargement of the testes, could not be explained. The research workers think that dienolone decreased the appetite because it converted into estradiol. In 1978, researchers discovered that androgens which convert to estradiol especially decrease ones appetite. Weight changes are shown in the diagram below.

  2. Secondary polycythemia ---------------------------------------------------Patients usually report fatigue, headache, drowsiness, forgetfulness, and vertigo. Itching after a bath is a common finding. Patients also may have nose bleeds or gastrointestinal bleeding. The eyes and face look red. There is an increased incidence of peptic ulcer disease among persons with polycythemia vera. An enlarged spleen is present in at least three fourths of patients with polycythemia vera. It gives a feeling of fullness in the abdomen. Enlargement of the liver is present among 40% of patients. Disturbances of vision, such as temporary blindness, double vision, specks, and bright points in front of the field of vision, are common.


    Secondary polycythemia is caused by either natural or artificial increases in the production of erythropoietinErythropoietinErythropoietin or EPO is a glycoprotein hormone that is a cytokine for erythrocyte precursors in the bone marrow....
    , hence an increased production of erythrocytes. In secondary polycythemia, there may be 6 to 8 million and occasionally 9 million erythrocytes per cubic millimeter (milliliter) of blood. Secondary polycythemia resolves when the underlying cause is treated.

    Secondary polycythemia in which the production of erythropoietin increases appropriately is called physiologic polycythemia. This physiologic (meaning normal) polycythemia is a normal adaptation to living at high altitudes (see altitude sicknessAltitude sickness

    So then, what's causing my ears to burn? The Milk thistle? Increased metabolism? "Hormone flush"?
    Im not sayn this is the same , but i had burning ears and they were turning red alot with alot of pressure and i finally went to doc and it was something to do with my sinus. Ive not heard of milk thistle having that kinda side effects , but everyone is different . Heres some info on the sides ands milk thistle it-self:

  4. baby aspirin should help also......just my 2 cents

  5. i had the exact same sides. i started dienedrone 1 week ago. the first thing i noticed was the weird warmth and pain in ears. thought it was maybe the cold from outside but then weird pain in fingers and random parts of body. continued for 3 days and then stopped. pain all went away. my blood pressure has always been at optimal levels

  6. just my take on this ---I take my last dose around 11am and if its true that it has a half life of 8-10 hrs then thats just around the time when this "EFFECT" starts [estro conversion ?] so after reading the above study I think its a good idea to run some estro control when using---also this kinda reminds my of what would happen when I used [300mg of TE WK] so in a way it lets me know the product "is for real "

    OK, if that is what's happening why would estrogen make our ears burn?

    Something no one has mentioned is the Peperine in this formula. Is there enough quantity to perhaps cause this burning effect? I think not but???

    I have checked my BP and body temperature. Both are normal.

  8. in post #27[Secondary polycythemia ] I think the burning ear thing has to do with increased red blood cells--I coldnt find the article but it describes red face ears eyes [itchy] the swoll feeling hands,ankles,bloate--increase in estrogen---the only way your gonna find out what it is --is by trying some of the suggestions here --plus everyones different--I know the benadryl worked for me --and I always run some estro control with every cycle

  9. Maybe one of the AMS tech guys could answer this:

    Does diendrone convert to estrogen by the same aromatase pathway that converts test to estradiol? And if so, can't we just jump on an aromatase inhibitor while on cycle to stop the unwanted conversion?

Correct me if I'm wrong guys, but you could add some doses of arginine and/or other vasodilators to reduce blood pressure some, just an idea. Good luck, and keep us posted!!
    Pretty sure arginine, and N.O will increase blood pressure

  12. Im using extreme tren right now, just added it to my epi run, Ill be honest, ive never been really able ot finihs a tren cycle, the sides for me outweigh the gains, crusty bloody boogers, extreme anger! towards EVERYONE ( only ph or ds that does this to me! ) and total and i mean toaly loss of sex drive, I think one day people will wonder wtf were any of us doing using that stuff!, crushes your blood pressure. Oh it also cause s me to get huge puffy bags under my eyes, and Im positive its the tren , ive done experements. Its a shame too cause I have 2 unopened bottles of it and one that i just cant seem to use. ANyone wants to trade 1 for an epi clone or h drol clone pm me, but buyer beware, its some real weird harsh stuff ( for me at least ) dont think ill use again. But for positives HUGE strength gains, And the biggest pumps ive ever had in my life.

    I have bottle of havoc

  14. mines unopened, 1 is now that I just checked , other is missing 20 of 90, and the other one is element nutrition, 2/3 empty

  15. Pretty sure arginine, and N.O will increase blood pressure
    Actually, vasodialtors don't. Easiest way to compare it is a small pipe that is flowing soild, then, take and upgrade the size of the pipe while maintaining the same amount of liquid. Now, the pipe isn't solid with liquid anymore. With less constriction, there would be less pressure.

  16. I took it for 2 days. 2 caps a day and felt a definite increase in strength. I quit because of the sides. Got a killer headache the second day and felt agitated and panicky. Blood pressure went up also. Not saying it happens to everyone just what I experienced. It really sucks that I had to quit because it seemed to really be working.

  17. ya man,makes u feel and look like steel, but just not worth it

    there are things you can take to combat the sides such as high BP etc..

    That's too bad man. Have you had this issue with any other ph's?

  20. after a week too these sides seem to diminish to be honest, in my opinion he should have maybe at least given it a week to see how it went. 2 days is somewhat premature.Obviously its his body so its his call.

    They refer to dienolone, but it should be diendione or prodienolone or something else.

    diendione - 19-norandrost-4,9-diene-3,17-dione

    dienonolone - 17b-hydroxy-19-norandrost-4,9(10)-diene-3-one

    I have been taking Dienedrone for 1 week now, 100mg/day split am/pm.

    By the middle of the first day I noticed a strange side effect that I have felt everyday since - burning in my ears (like a sunburn) and face. The third day on Dienedrone I also had swollen hands - so much so that I had bruises the next day after lifting. The swelling has subsided but the burning ears/face persist. I also feel pressure in my head - especially when bending over to tie shoes, etc.

    These symptoms seem to indicate my BP has skyrocketed yet I have not seen posts from anyone else stating similar significant problems with Dienedrone.

    So, what could be the problem here? Is it likely a BP issue or something else? I intend to get the BP checked ASAP - don't want to let this go if it is a BP issue. Hawthorn berry (recently added) hasn't helped.

    Maybe I'm done?
    Are you using the new AMS liquiddrone?

    That does not make sense for dienolone or dienelone, the body does not remove the 9-ene, and aromatase cant interact with a 9-ene. It cant convert to estradiol

    Well , maybe its turning buy some other mech.---[Estra 4,9 in general] just look at all the bros getting gyno -I wouldnt use the stuff without a good AI--This stuff has an interesting history 1st they tried to say it was tren,then some say its a progestin others say no,Some say its easy on the liver [non meth] some get elavated enzymes --Realy I dont care [as long as im prepared for what could happen] because I seem to do very well on it
