i've got some daa that will be expiring soon, and so i just went ahead and started it.
however, i'm starting to wonder if it's even worth it because of my anxiety issues (still on 5mg ED of lexapro for it as i try to ween off of 10mg) as i heard it can cause some serious psychological problems for certain people prone to these types of things. i've also heard people claim it messed with their blood pressure, and that's something i have to watch as well. finally, there's always the back and forth of it being neurotoxic and bad for your receptors, etc, although i've yet to see any conclusive data one way or the other.
I guess what i'm asking is, have those of you that run it seen worthwhile gains? i mean, it just seems hard for me to believe even a 40% increase in test would equate to gains in the gym, unless maybe you were in the borderline-low area and it bumped you up to normal. reading reviews, it seems that most people that like it take it because of a sense of well being, increased libido, etc. i'm just wondering if it really has THAT big of an effect on strength/size gains. some dude i know claims to have lost 10 lbs of body fat and gained strength on it, which i don't believe, although a mutual friend/workout partner said his strength does go up A LOT on it.
so what's your opinion? are the gains (size and strength ONLY) worth while? am i wrong in thinking that a 40% increase isn't all that much, and you'd be hard to notice significant gains with that?
thanks for your inputs, guys
