I pin 2 iu daily the first week and could feel something but chalked it up to placebo. Bumped it to 3iu on MWF and 4 on Tuesday/Thursday and that when typical sides kicked in. My hands are already weighing me down but now they are like bricks sometimes. I have slight carpel, but the good outweighs the bad. Skin has improved hair no longer being considered a total loss, nails look prime for biting, and my favorite, the sleep. My sleep is great. Taking addiction meds makes difficult to fall asleep, but that hasn't been case since week 3. I'm in my 6th week now and feel great as the fat starts to come off for my transformation. For GH I am mainly concerned with overall well being than fat loss. I may lower the Tues/Thursday dose to 3iu. I've taken Humatrope throughout my usage, and while this isnt exactly equal, for the money it's my new go to.
As alluded to above, one very important thing to acknowledge when using AAS (whether taking one hormone, stacking or cycling) is the risk of harmful side effects. Within a steroid cycle, the users will often stack other non-anabolic hormones into their program to maximize specific cycle objectives for example: the addition of drugs like Clenbuterol and/or Cytomel /T3 augment cutting/definition cycles; others called aromatase inhibitors (estrogen reducing drugs) like Letrozole . Letro and Anastrozole Arimidex are often included to inhibit the conversion of excess testosterone to negatively cycle impacting estrogen and; incorporating post-cycle therapy (PCT) drugs such as the synthetic estrogens Tamoxifen . Nolvadex , or Clomiphene Citrate . Clomid (which act as anti-estrogens in the male body), can be used alone, together, or in conjunction with those like Mesterolone . Proviron and Human Chorionic Gonadotropin ( HCG ) during PCT to bridge the gap between the end of a steroid cycle (synthetic testosterone usage) and the restoration of the bodys natural testosterone production. These drugs too must be researched, and controlled in similar fashion to AAS. Thus, steroid cycles can be as simple or complex as the users individualized goals, cycle histories and levels of understanding. Below are three samples of AAS stacked cycles of varying complexity along with a beginning PCT sample, and an explanation of goal intention & rationale for the selected compounds, dosages & durations. These illustrations and commentaries will provide a better understanding of what stacking and cycling are along with the many nuances they require.
