    would taking tribulus on cycle help reduce the shutdown and make my recovery easier ...or is it possible to start my PCT a few days after my last shot?? any ideas please? ...or take 50 mg DHEA along with my PCT

    PCT should start 2 weeks after your last injection. Also, I'm a fan of DHEA in pct, so go right ahead.

    Oh, and no, trib. won't keep you from getting shutdown on cycle. But, igf-1 would be ideal.

    HCG could get you going again quicker.

    Any good natty test booster should help get you going again quickly to at least limit the 'depression' that comes with PCT.

    Is Nolva the only thing you have planned for PCT? How about a test booster, cortisol control, etc?

    The depression is most likely due to some of the test converting to Estrodiol ( you probably have a higher level than your girlfriend right now). Are you taking an AI on cycle?

    yeah im taking arimidex .25 mg ED ...would using Torem instead of Nolva be a better option ...i do not have much knowledge about it but have heard it is the best option for a SERM during PCT ...what exactly does Torem do though ...does it help get E levels back to normal as well as bring Test back to normal as well?

    If you are prone to depression or have had bouts of it in the past then it will probably strike again after the cycle. Depression really sucks arse, it would have to be one of the worst feelings in the world, but I suppose it is simply another side-effect of gearing. If it does occur, just remind yourself that it's only the gear talking.

    Yeah, I agree it is the worst. You can't put your finger on it exactly, but all you know is that you want it to stop. Mine is terrible if gyno flares up, which would correlate to high est levels. It does past though, and when mine does I usually feel great thereafter.

    unless u have problems like acne or gyno afterwards, theres really nothing to be depressed about. alot of people have it worst, like how about getting some ***** tits before your trip to punta cana haha .. anyway, more cardio usually helps depression. take runs outside and listen to some music

    I don't know man, the hormonal shift downward from supra-human test levels to sub-normal then back to 'normal' isn't something to discount so easily as saying 'well at least I don't have tits'.

    Uh...., WTF take some SAMe brother!! I can't believe no one posted that. Lost of guys run it post cycle for liver care but it was originally marketed for Depression so you kill two birds with one stone so to speak. You realy won't have any liver stress seeing as how your running Test but none the less this is recommendation from dinoiii's clinicians pct article (he's a real Doc and yes he knows his sht) You can read about it over at ********. Hope that helps man......-Hate

    Deperession and "feeling depressed" about something are two entirely different things.
