I am currently running a cycle of Danville batch p8353. I am about a week and a half into it. I started the mini-log in another thread, but I will copy and paste my first few entries and finish the log here to make my log/review easier to follow. If you're interested in the original thread it is here Any positive reviews on the new M-drol batch?
I'm sorry this first bit is so long, it is a compilation from what I started elsewhere. Future installments will be shorter.
I noticed the smilies didn't copy over...I added them in where I remembered and felt it was needed.

Day 3 @ 10 mgs of Danville batch p8353 eu112
Lethargy-check. I feel like I'm moving through a pool of water. It's all I can do to workout with weights, no way I can do anything else :bruce3:
Insomnia-check. Tired as hell last night, Slept 2 hours then woke up,I then proceeded to lay there for the next 4 hours and solve the worlds problems.
Pumps-check. Enough that my wife (who doesn't know) commented. No back pumps that I can tell...I have a compressed l3/l4 so my lower back aches anyway.
appetite-check. I eat like a horse anyway, now I eat like a starving horse. Mainly beef,chicken,fish and eggs Carbs are brown rice, veggies, Ezekial 4:9 bread, and whatever sneaks in from dairy and nuts.
strength- I dunno...I took the last 2 weeks off from training to "recharge" and my strength usually drops when I do that anyway.
Sex drive- Up. Again, my wife commented on it.
another effect?????- I don't remember seeing it during my research, but I swear I've farted more in the last 3 days than I usually do in a month. Weird stink to it too.It may be from the eggs I'm eating

I weighed myself today...up 5 lbs after one week.

Another "side effect" I've noticed is what I will call muscle stiffness. Even though I stretch every day, my muscle feel stiff like I just woke up. I know Mdrol is supposed to dry you out, but I'm a Cissus freak that has been taking 750 mg 3x a day of Cissus for about 3 months.
My diet the last week hasn't been entirely clean either...somehow izza: and :burg: have snuck on my plate a time or two.
Starting 20 mgs today. I'll take 10 mg in the morning before workout and the other 10 mg before bed. That brings something up...I take diphenhydramine hydrochloride (aka Benedryl) before bed to help me sleep, is there any potential reactions I should worry about?

Today is the third day of 20 mgs...day 9 altogether. Yesterday I think I had the infamous back pump. Nothing really bad, it felt like I had a back workout, which I know didn't happen because TODAY was back day. I wonder how it'll feel tomorrow? It was mainly in the small of the back, which is where I have problems anyway, so maybe I was having a normal injury flare up...but it felt different than a flare up which is why I think it was a pump.
I also had another sleepless night. I took my second dose about 8:30 and went to bed at 9, but got back up at 10 because I couldn't sleep, my brain was even if the rest of me was I finally went to sleep about midnight. This is despite the fact I feel soooo friggin run down. I feel like if I blink too long I could fall asleep.
Another oddity I've begun experiencing is a facial twitch on the left cheek...bad enough the eye waters. It'll happen about 3-4 times a day and last 5-10 seconds. It started late last week. I don't know if it's related or not, it may be the stress I'm under.
On the plus side, I feel absolutely massive. As I mention before, my wife doesn't know about the stuff (don't want to hear it...low on money) but she keeps eyeballing me and saying "DAMN! you look good"
"Littlerobbierob" is fine. The wife's not complaining and actually commented on it as well.
No aggression though.I'm pretty even tempered/cold anyway. It doesn't fire me up to workout, but I do want to continue and not stop...I go until I'm nearly exhausted.
It confuses me about others complaining about it. From what I can tell, everything is going according to plan as it relates to me. I've definitely added solid muscle mass.:bb3:
