I’m on test and Deca and wondering about prolactin sides. I have Pfizer Caber on hand that I’ve been doing .5 2x a week and this is my 6th week of test c 500 and deca 500. I haven’t been using estrogen control since I do not have any sensitivity what so ever just feeling a little dip in sex drive. Would adding in Aromasin cause a reduction in the prolactin sides?

Also considering adding in pramipexole for the prolactin while keeping my caber dosage going

No caber or prami. The most important thing thing is running a legit AI and then add some b6, its cheap and will help keep prolactin at bey, as long as you control your estrogen.

This ^ isn’t mentioned enough here. Prolactin cycle comes after estrogen, control the estrogen early on, no need for prolactin control. If you want to take something for good measure that is badass for libido, AI + Inhibit-P(or just buy L-dopa and P5P from Swanson vitamins, set you back $16)

What’s the typical dose of b6 to effectively lower prolactin? I read a study thay reduced prolactin comparable to 1mg of caber a week at a dose of 300mg /3 doses daily of B6

Add in the aromasin, your dip in sex drive is probably coming from high estrogen.

I hear about caber with deca, but i dont recall many guys mentioning it back in the 70s and deca was mothers milk back then. At what dossage should someone get concerned about deca? I figure i might run 200-300 mg a week. I am on .5 arimidex 3x a week with trt 200mg test a week seen no sides and blast an additional 300mg test for 12 weeks a couple months ago and no sides. Maybe i am lucky, but my estrogen does seem to run low. It has been below 7 a couple times but i was on 1mg arimidex everyday then.

I agree.....Inhibit P is what I use now and an AI if needed. But I know we are all different and some may need more, but I like to try something milder that works, if at all possible.

Yes, elevated estrogen leads to elevated prolactin. I had an e2 number of 109 pg/ml ad natirally prolactin rose to 450 miu/ml (ref is like 80-300).

Also, with enough dht in the system (proviron, masteron), i can have elevated estrogen and still have good libido. But prolactin is a total libido killer. Absolutely 0 desire, even though erections are still there (spontaneous/morning wood).

Fortunately a little bit of caber fixes things really fast.

@AnabolicGuru if you got high e2 and prolactin, just using an ai wont cut it. E2 gets normalized pretty quickly with enough aromasin (i did 12.5mg ed when e2 was 109 pg/ml). However, a month from then, e2 was 17 but prolactin was still high, 350, and i had no libido throughout.

Gathered the courage to take caber lol, 0.25mg, and i had libido the next day.
I also felt nauseous with really high prolactin.

Dopamine agonist is IMO a must if you want to normalize prolactin in a reasonable amount of time.
