    Using Clomid alone, not for post-cycle


    For 3 weeks I've been using clomid as a testosterone amplifier, and it definately works by itself... there is no question that my sex drive and my strength went up tremendously. For example, the week before I did it, I could barely shoulder press 2 70 pound dumbells for 6 reps. But now I can hit 10 reps of 70 and even did 5 of 80... so thats some fast progress.
    I've been starting to become depressed and moody, and its to the point that I'm loosing my appetite and my ambition to go to the gym. Has anyone had this experience with clomid?

    The emotional effects has been linked with clomid usage before.
    I am not too aware with the appetite suppression though.

    I guess appetite suppression might be related more with the "depressing" effects that you say you have rather than with clomid itself.
    I've been medicated to treat a "natural" depression, and one of the things that helped to diagnose my depression was a big appetite suppression (I could make through a day with just a coffee in my stomach).
    Just for curiosity, how have you been dosing it, how much have you gain in terms of weight/bf/strength and how would you compare it's use to other otc anti-estrogens?

    I can't really compare clomid to other anti-estrogens because its really the only drug I've used for bodybuilding. I've been natural for years, trying occasional prohormones that did nothing but make me edgy. I've been taking 50mg a day, and I see visible gains and like I mentioned earlier, am able to lift more. I just ordered some DIM/ Indole Carbinol 3 as it should help me balance out after I stop taking this clomid. I think I'm going to ride it out for another week, but I'm getting way too depressed! I thought that I'd be happier making all this progress!

    The emotional sides can always come on strong , ive experience this first hand. Ive had almost all the issues u discussed ,but usually after 2.5 weeks i nomalize and things get much brighter. Your not alone man!

    Thanks for answering my question
    Another thing that I could say that would help you comming off of clomid is taper it of, like take only 25mg for another week and then start taking some 5-HTP to help the psycological sides in addition to the DIM and the IC3.
    I'm curious to hear your final results after finnishing your clomid "cycle"

    But bon't forget that we're talking about using clomid as a standalone not as a part of PCT, and that makes a huge diference!

    I haven't gotten emotional sides from clomid. Only sides from high test. Amazing strength gains though, that's very impressive. Thanks for sharing.

    But are they associated with proportional mass gains?
