    How much DHEA PCT


    What would oyu guys recommend on the dosage of DHEA PCT after a 2 week SD cycle? I was thinking 50mg daily for 3 weeks would do the trick, what do you guys think.

    50mg minimum. 50mg twice a day would be best, up to 200mg total/day is optimum in my experience.

    It reduces depression, supports libido and adrenal function, antagonizes elevated cortisol, and contributes an easy testosterone precursor, amoung it's many other functions. It just fits well in PCT in my experience. Look up those threads I mentioned if your really interested. Some of the other guys had some excellent links and studies in there. I plan to take it till I die.

    Rebound XT is the worst thing for me when it comes to acne... My face gets oily pretty bad and everything... It's way worse than SD and DHEA combined

    Sorry to hear that man.

    I remember trying 6-oxo when I ran my first PH cycle...never again!! People were asking if I was growing another head...lol. I just started using RXT after my 4 weeks of PCT w/ nolva to help me in my upcoming cutter...hopefully acne won't be too bad for myself.

    Sure,
    Went all good. I was doing 400-600mg of trans 4AD, 30mg SD and 1000mg Oral 19Nor.
    The 19Nor Was made by ABF was called 19-norKeto.
    I put on 8KG then lost 4kg over just finished PCT.
    What ya recon on that 19-norKeto.
    I about to start a 3week SD Cycle wondering weather to include the 19nor again. or run SD Solo.

    The 19nor-keto may be a nice complement to the SD, but it is a fair anti-e itself and will overlap the effects of SD in several ways. People think it is more likely to form estro, but that's untrue. I'd use the 4AD with SD again. Save the 19-nor for a stack with test or dbol.

    Dr. D.... i cant seem to PM you... I have a concern.

    WHat are possible side effects from DHEA? i cant seem to find much info.
    I am in my PCT right now using nolva 40402020, and IM starting dhea @ 75mg/day. I am afraid dhea will induce my slightly puffy nipples (which i think are just naturally how they are, but nevertheless).
    Im only 22, will DHEA be effective in my PCT?
    How about fenugreek and trib? at what doses?

    I am pretty concerned about my pct and nipples, please help me out. THanks.

    I've addressed the dose issue many times if you do some searching, but generally I endorse a 4,5,6 pills/night cycle on the fen for PCT purposes, break for a wk and start all over. I'd cycle trib about the same way but using higher doses. I see no prob with you using DHEA. I've never noticed any estrogenic sides at all. The only sides I've even seen with DHEA are androgenic: increased body hair growth and acne. Both mild and dose dependent. Start with the 75mg/d, I seriously doubt it will hurt your nipple condition. It may actually help, but don't increase dose until you know it's not hurting it. If you donate 10$ to the AM Bobo fund, you get PM privs!

    I started taking it at 25 or 26 so we're close! I bet it helps you though. Start low and work up.

    I've taken between 50-200mg of DHEA and really liked it. It wasn't for PCT so I can't speak to that but at 150-200mg in the morning with some fish oil made me feel great!

    Mood was high. energy was high as was libido. I didn't get any nipple issues or acne. For some 50mg works, for others, they need to go higher. Just play with the dose. I found within 2 days of a certain dose, I got a good feel for its effects on me.

    Now the village idiots in D.C. want to take it away.

    I'm a bit confused. I thought that DHEA, since it can lead to increased test levels, is suppressive. I understand why its effects would be desirable during PCT, but isn't it counterproductive to use a suppressive substance during PCT?

    In theory yes, but in practice it doesn't do it for some reason. It enhances PCT.

    If dhea affects cortisol would it be a good idea to run it with lean x during a pct or would that be to much?

    At low doses (anywhere from 25-200mg) the suppression is slight enough to make it worth it for the general mood improvement.

    I would like DHEA a lot more if it did not make me hold water in my pecs, abs. Otherwise I think it is a great addition to any regimen.

    That sounds symptomatic of some conversion to est going on.. And yet, Ive always heard that there is minimal likelihood of this happening with Dhea. You might want to check it out, by running a month of something Like Novedex-xt to make sure est is not the problem.

    DHEA will antagonize cortisol but not to the degree that LX will. LX is designed just specifically for this. I run them both, the LX I just use for the first 2-3 wks of PCT.

    That does sound like some conversion occuring. I bet an AI would be perfect for you.

    Dr. D, I have some 6oxo, tribulus and DHEA lying around from a cycle I was experimenting with. From my understanding, this stack enhances natural testosterone production. Do you think his is something I can use to bring my test back to normal levels after my Halodrol cycle. I was thinking about using activate after my Halodrol cycle but then thought if I have this stuff lying around I should find some use for it.
    So do you think I can use DHEA, 6oxo and tribilus at a stack to bring my natural testosterone levels back up?

    Yes, that should work well. Add the ACT and you have a nice stack. Of course, it takes a much higher dose of 6-oxo than it would RXT and basically a double dose of trib compared to fenugreek, but they will both still work in your combo.

    Thank you Dr D. Now when you say "Add the ACT" are you referring to the serm which in my case is Nolva or do you mean something else? If you mean something else can you please tell me the name of some "ACTs". thanks

    Sorry, I use ACT as a short term for ActivaTe. That's what I meant. It's a great PCT addition.

    Thanks Dr. D. If I have to purchase Activate I guess I will. I was just looking for where I could reduce my cost in my cycle. So far I have spent over 300 bucks on my cycle and I thought I might be able to cut a corner and utilize the 6oxo, tribilus and DHEA which I already have and not spend anymore money buying Activate. But I guess if I have to buy activate I guess I will.
    I might even just try the DHEA and tribilus in higher dosages and see if it works, if it doesnt then I will buy activate. Do you think that is a good idea Dr. D or anyone else.

But I guess if I have to buy activate I guess I will.
    I might even just try the DHEA and tribilus in higher dosages and see if it works, if it doesnt then I will buy activate. Do you think that is a good idea Dr. D or anyone else.
    Don't increase the doses of trib and DHEA, just use as normal. You don't need the ActivaTe, it just makes a real nice addition, that's all. Once you do try it, you'll never PCT again without it! But you don't NEED it.
