    What is the risk to taking a supp like formastane or epistane as a daily


    I read about stacking and pulsing and PCTing.

    I take 3 caps fish oil daily. A good multi vitamin, an 81 mg aspirin, l-arginine, vitamin C and watch my fat intake. I have been taking formastane *Eform* and have noticed nice strength gains and pretty nice muscle *esthetics.* Anecdotally my libido seems stronger. I have really good nocturnal erections, virtually all night long.

    For aging men like me, with still good levels of T what do the guys here take on the whole as their regimen to keep at peak health?

    Epistane is an AAS. Formestane is an AI. I wouldn't recommend taking either on a regular basis. Your supposed to cycle both.

    i don't really see formestane causing that many problems being cycled... epi running constantly is going to cause libido problems obviously.

    So, how much transdermal formestane should one use per day? I've heard of everything from 50 mgs. to 400 mgs. Where's the sweet spot? I'm 43 years old and I'm 6'3 and 270 lbs.

    I am about your age thundergod (6' 230lbs), and 80-120mg/day seems to be the sweet spot. I taper up then back down.
    40mg/day(couple days)
    80mg/day
    120mg/day
    80mg/day
    40mg/day(week)

    Gottest--- I appreciate the input bro. I'm taking 125 mgs. per day right now, so it looks like I guessed right.

    Pulsing is your friend. Form is meant to be cycled

    Neoborn--- Much love back at cha baby! I have heard of pulsing orals, but I have not heard of pulsing transdermals. Do you use the same protocol: larger doses everyother day? What dosage scheme would one employ for this endeavor? Maybe 200 mgs. EOD? And how long could one stay on such a cycle. 8 weeks or longer? Thanks for your input, as I always greatly anticipate and appreciate all your help!

    I don't really pulse trans, but I would have no qualms about doing it. I see no reason why it wouldn't work fine. I love form and so just run it straight cycle throughout, but I think I most likely only apply it once a day as opposed to twice so that in its self might be considered pulsing it, kind of.

    Epistane...No. Libido issues, liver issues (probably even at low dosing as well) when ran constantly.

    Form...maybe. I saw a thread here one time about a guy saying he liked it so much that he might consider it daily. Question is...How old was that guy, and how old are you? Remember, Estrogen is your friend. Your joints like it.

    If you were looking at something to take as a daily test booster. I would look more towards non-hormonal anabolics. Tribulus, Avena Sativa, Longjack, Fenugreek, etc... Problem is, some of those should still be cycled.
