Things look pretty good. Only a few things I would change. Dosing of Epi-Strong should be 30 first week and then consider bumping into the second week. 45mg would be the sweet spot and then possible consider 60mg for the last couple weeks. 30/45/45/45/60/60 is how I ran my very first cycle which was Epi-Strong with EXCELLENT results.
PCT of Nolva should be 20/20/10/10 and I would seriously add some OTC test boosting to it also. HCGenerate and DAA would be a great addition to it to help you get those test levels up and keep those gains.
Cycle assist needs ran the whole cycle and in PCT. Also consider adding in some Cissus for the joints or pick up some Skeletal Balm at NTBM. Epi can dry out your joints and that will help a lot.Recoverbro Elite"This is what we've been working on"

I was under the impression running stimulants while on cycle was a no-no because of blood-pressure. Prolly should save that for PCT when your motivation wont be too high.

Using an anecdotal study to warrant not using and tried and true method of protecting your one liver in fear of not obtaining maximum gains of a ph cycle is a bit silly to me.

Personal blood work have shown that neither or run concurrently did anything more than solo ALA.

Per PDR: Acetaminophen overdose 140 mg/kg PO/NG x1. Total Doses: 70 mg/kg PO q4h x17 doses. N-acetylcysteine (NAC): NAC is the antidote for toxic acetaminophen overdose. It is generally given by mouth. The medication has a foul odor but may be mixed with juice or other flavorings to make it taste better. If the person cannot take NAC by mouth, a tube may be placed through the mouth and into the stomach to help administer it. If giving NAC by this method is not possible, the doctor may give it by IV. NAC is generally given for 20-72 hours. The oral solution that can be given by mouth (PO) or through an NG (nasogastric) tube if the patient is obtunded or has intractable vomitting.

My original point still stands, why discount and tried and true thing because it might hinder results.

Oral or Intravenous N-Acetylcysteine: Which Is the Treatment of Choice for Acetaminophen (Paracetamol) Poisoning?
1999, Vol. 37, No. 6 , Pages 759-767 (doi:10.1081/CLT-100102453)
Nicholas A. Buckley, Dr.Nicholas Buckley, Ian M. Whyte, Dianne L. O'Connell and Andrew H. DawsonRoyal Adelaide Hospital, Adelaide, SA, Australia
Department of Clinical Pharmacology, Royal Adelaide Hospital, S.A., 5000, Australia
Newcastle Mater Misericordiae Hospital, Newcastle, Australia
University of Newcastle, Newcastle, Australia
Background: The optimal route and duration of administration for N–acetylcysteine in the management of acetaminophen (paracetamol) poisoning are controversial. It has been stated on the basis of a selected post-hoc analysis that oral N-acetylcysteine is superior to intravenous N-acetylcysteine in presentations later than 15 hours. Aim of Study: To investigate the efficacy of intravenous or oral N-acetylcysteine. Patients and Methods: We analyzed a series of acetaminophen poisonings treated with a protocol including activated charcoal and intravenous N-acetylcysteine. The outcomes assessed included use of N-acetylcysteine, adverse effects of intravenous N-acetylcysteine, and the occurrence of hepatotoxicity (transaminase >1000U/L). We incorporated these results in a meta-analysis of previously reported series of acetaminophen poisonings to compare the outcomes from intravenous and oral N-acetylcysteine use. Results: Of 981 patients admitted over 10 years, 4% (40) presented later than 24 hours and 10% (100) had concentrations of acetaminophen that indicated a probable or high risk of hepatotoxicity. The 30 patients who developed hepatotoxicity presented later, took larger amounts, had higher concentrations, and received N-acetylcysteine later than those who did not. No patients received a liver transplant but 2 patients died (one after referral to a transplant unit and one just before). Adverse reactions to intravenous N-acetylcysteine occurred in 6% (12/205) of patients but none prevented completion of the treatment. In the meta–analysis, those with probable or high risk concentrations had similar outcomes with intravenous (pooled n = 341) and oral N-acetylcysteine (pooled n = 1462) administration. Rates of hepatotoxicity for those treated within 10 hours (3 and 6%), late (10–24 hours: 30 and 26%), and overall (0–24 hours: 16 and 19%) were all similar. The proportion of patients classified as presenting later than 10 hours is much greater in the oral N-acetylcysteine studies (64%) than in many of the intravenous N-acetylcysteine studies (38%, 44%, and 63%).Conclusions: The differences claimed between oral and intravenous N-acetylcysteine regimes are probably artifactual and relate to inappropriate subgroup analysis. A shorter hospital stay, patient and doctor convenience, and the concerns over the reduction in bioavailability of oral N-acetylcysteine by charcoal and vomiting make intravenous N-acetylcysteine preferable for most patients with acetaminophen poisoning.

for a first time cycle just do 30/30/45/45 and see how you do. buy another bottle of epi now why u can so down the road you can do something like 30/45/45/45/60/60

The use of sulfhydryl donors has dramatically improved
the outcome of acetaminophen (paracetmol) poisoning.
Death from paracetamol hepatotoxicity is very
uncommon in patients presenting to hospital within 16
hours who receive either intravenous (IV) or oral N-acetylcysteine
(NAC).1,2 Two major remaining areas of controversy
are whether activated charcoal should be used
and what the optimal route and duration of administration
for NAC should be. In Europe and Australia, 300 mg/kg
of IV NAC is given over 20 hours.1 In contrast, in the
US, 1330 mg/kg of oral NAC is given over 72 hours.2
That both of these treatments are more effective than no
treatment is not in doubt but the optimal dose, route, and
duration remain debatable. The IV formulation may be
more convenient because of the frequent vomiting associated
with acetaminophen poisoning and oral NAC.3
There are also concerns that oral charcoal may reduce
the bioavailability of oral NAC.4 Others have suggested,
using historical controls,2 that the 72 hours oral NAC regime
may be preferable in patients presenting after 15–
16 hours. However, a subsequent series of patients presenting
after 12 hours showed comparable results with
Sorry, I probably should've mentioned which country I was speaking from... Unless I am hallucinating on a near daily basis, oral is what is being used at the hospital I work at in Philadelphia.

PCT should look like this:
SERM (I prefer clomid)
HCgen or natty tbooster of your choice
Formastanozol or Anti-E of your choice
However even for a first time cycle of EPI I wouldn't waste my time with less than 40mg. Epi was my first cycle and I wish I would have dosed higher then.
