    Is this common for test boosters? (calling for cooper69)


    Let me explain the situation first. Lets say I take an 8 week cycle of DAA. for the first 2 weeks or so, my libido increases, acne increases...etc then it plateaus and i dont experience that anymore. libido goes back to normal (sometimes declines), acne is next to nothing...etc. Once the cycle is complete, about a week being off of it, my acne comes back, libido and all increases.

    This has happened to me with every test booster I have used. jw if any of you experience(d) this or know why this is happening.

    I'm not coop but I'll take a shot in the dark with..."It's the homeostatic response from the body to the supplements and rise in testosterone/estrogen/LH, and as the body adapts to it the sides flare off, when you go off...it is possible your body reacts to it and it has another response to it until it balances out...or it's mere placebo effect."

    Now I await or Cybears smack if I was totally wrong :3

    I don't think it has anything to do with homeostasis for two reasons:

    1. 2 weeks is far too acute of a timescale generally
    2. The more recent DAA study was run for 12 weeks and T was still up over 30% by the end of it

    A more plausible reason is that you "feel" the changes during the initial period of DAA supplementation. Your T levels go from X to X + ~42%. However, DAA has a tissue-saturating effect, so after the maximum level of testosterone output has been reached, all further DAA is simply maintaining this elevated testosterone output. So your total T, while elevated over baseline, is not changing over the course of DAA supplementation (which makes sense, you wouldn't expect to keep boosting T further and further with each daily dose).

    The rest may simply be behavioral adaptations to changes in T. Acne, for instance, can be caused by increases in LH.


    This is all postulation at this point because I won't formally learn neuroendocrinology for another 2 months, so take it for what it's worth.

    Hey mr. Coop. I ran a similar stack, with dpol and erase and my libido took a nose dive. I was in pcf for 6 weeks and by the 3rd week libido was very low.

    I'm not coop (obviously) but if you were running erase @ 3 caps reduce it to 2 next time. When I ran erase @ 3 per day my libido was insanely low, but @ 2 caps it was at least normal if not a tad higher than usual.

    but seems to me, with a thread title like "Is this common for test boosters? (calling for cooper69)" where you want a specific person to answer -- why not just PM him instead of creating a thread??

    This , estrogen influences libido directly.

    actually this is what many experience when they are put on trt. it takes awhile for effects to reach a max, then they level off....many think the trt isn't working anymore because of this, even though blood test's show elevated test scores!!!

    this is why many on trt do blast cycles, to regain that nice boost you feel when 1st put on trt....very similar to what narcotic users experience, in a much more subtle way, of course.

    i guess this could be what the op is experiencing to a lesser degree with the daa, like cooper said the body adapts!!!

    i mean, i almost feel shut down for a few weeks while taking stuff. no acne, low libido, always tired...etc then once i stop i go back to my normal self. really weird. i respond this way to most test boosters but GH boosters are different for me. i feel awesome throughout the entire cycle. im very weird i guess.

    GH boosters work through elevation of dopamine, hence the feel good effects. Try taking Dopadex or Inhibit-P with your next DAA run...I bet you'd feel a lot better

    i have been planning on doing that in the future, but the problem is is that it isnt only DAA that does this. i just used this as an example.

    and i do understand the increase in release of dopamine, but i was more referring to acne, libido...etc. i dont see the roller coaster with GH boosters that i see with most test boosters. but i know they work different ways...etc

    I know, and I'm not saying that elevating dopamine has effects specific to DAA only. Regardless of the tbooster you're on, dopamine's role in the body is the same. Do I thing it's weird that every tbooster gives you a shutdown effect though? Definitely

    Please correct me if I'm wrong I don't mean to spread misinformation but I read in another thread taking b6 with ldopa causes it to be metabolized before the blood brain barrier and then it cannot cross ths effectiveness is limited

    Ok so at what rate, one to one? So do you still suggest inhibit p or would something like prolacterone be better
