    How many pills is too much??


    Ok, I have been reading and training hard, learning as much as I can about eating healthy and supplements that will help me bulk and amino acids that will help my body. Here is my list of pills that I am currently taking. Is it too much. Is there any redundency in them?

    multi- 2 pills once daily
    milk thistle- 1 pill 3x daily
    bcaa- 3 pills 3x daily
    pcs- 6 pills 1 daily
    flax seed oil- 2 pills 1 daily
    zma- 3 pills 1 daily
    fish oil- 1tbls daily
    melatonin-1 pill daily
    6-oxo- 3 pills 1 daily

    That's a crap load of pills!!!!! Am I really helping myself or hurting. I feel good and working out 4 times a week. I am 38 years old 6' 186 lbs.

    I also do lots of protein, creatine and glutamine. Any advice is welcomed. Thanks

    i'd say you're solid. since you're not taking any of them in huge amounts. i don't have so much experience with the PCS or 6oxo for your age bracket, though. but i'm guessing you could lower them both a bit. i am not sure, though. that's just my wallet talking.

    I'll be curious to see the reponses. I take fish oil, glucosamin; multi; maca; drive;rpm; and vitamin b and two meds so I tend to have anywhere from 4 to 8 pills at a time.

    It looks o.k. There are people on this site who make this list look weak. I myself take about 22 pills a day. Are you asking if you can cut down by getting some of these products combined in a pill or powder?

    Not neccessarilt, just wanted to make sure I'm not killing my liver and that I am not taking pills that do the same thing or do not have synergy.

    I used to be over 50 pills a day. After I "grew up" I tapered it down to under 20. (8 are multi)

    I appreciate the feedback. Once I finish my PCT, I will be doing a Halodrol 50 cycle. What would stack well with that?

    Now i'm curious as to counting my own:

    Life Support: 8 caps
    Super Cissus: 6 caps
    Powerfull: 5 caps
    Anabolic Pump: 3 caps
    ZMA: 3 caps
    Recreate: 4 caps
    Adam multi: 3 caps
    Digestive ezymes: 8 or so

    I'm at 40 right now but life support and Recreate aren't in there year round.

    Don't go straight from pct into another cycle. take time off remember cycle+pct=time off.

    So a 4 week cycle plus 4 week pct means I should wait 2 months before next cycle after pct is completed?

    Damn!! Oh well, it will give me time to put together a more solid cycle and pct than the first one. Thanks for your help.

    I thought you only had to do pct after a cycle of steroids? I normally just take test boosters or pro hormones.

    For natty test boosters pct is not necessary. But since prohormones convert to active steroids once in the body, you need to do pct.
