    Combatting Test Flu...


    Me, being Mr. Preparation (not H ), decided to do a little bit of reasearch to see what I could do to combat the Test flu, if I happen to get it on my first test cycle. What I've "read" so far is that echinecea and robitussin can be very helpful in keeping you in the gym

    Just wondering if my anabolicly educated bretheren have any advice as to how to stay in the gym, by combating test flu symptoms!

    thx!

    Honestly, I do not think there is much you can do. If it is going to happen to you, then I think it will. Not everyone experiences this, in fact, I imagine that most do not.

    i think its just because your body isn't used to having that much test kick in that fast but i'm just guessing lol...

    I'm on my third week of prop @ 150/eod and its got me....

    I have to force my meals and it BLOWS! i just use Malox and Gas-x

    it eases the stomach discomfort til its gone...

    even tho its looked down upon here, and trust me i don't do it alot.... i'll smoke a joint before a meal just to help me put away the cals easier lol... i know, i know i'm an A$$ lol

    I experienced this a little. A little Cold FX and a bumped dose of Rhodiola helped me stay motivated.

    One plausible explanation I have heard for "test flu" is that it's due to the testosterone metabolite etiocholanolone. It causes these types of symptoms. I don't know what can be done about it though.

    I read something about an antihistamine like Claritin helping with this. Anyone try it?
