  1. Anavar bloat/acid reflux

    Started with 10mg Pharmacom and then switched to 50mg ROHM - they both had the same sides. Always took them with food and was taking additional Omega 3 capsules to counteract Var's assault on HDL. For context been on my current diet for about 4 years with no bloat/acid etc. Some of the artificial sweeteners can cause me problems such as Malitol so will avoid those. Started cut some weeks before cycle - only difference was less cals (ofc) and higher protein percentage - same foods just different ratios. For me I have no doubt VAR started the problems which are slowly clearing up.
  2. Anavar bloat/acid reflux

    [email protected] , I was using sugarfree caffeine drinks at start of cycle but then omitted them to see if it helped - it didn't unfortunately. It was a sobering experience for me to get quite so ill on what is considered by many 'to be a safer' oral. Either it wasn't genuine, i just can't take 17's or perhaps I am intolerant to one of the binders as you suggest. Regardless it's definitely caused some damage which seems to be slowly mending... It's a lesson learned and I'll stick to good ole T juice in the future!!
  3. I have used TestCyp and TestE for TRT and a cycle and I prefer Cyp purely as it seems to come with a less viscose base, which warms easier and I can use a thinner pin to inject. I've noticed the private TRT docs also seem to recommend Cyp for the above reason.
  4. Anavar bloat/acid reflux

    @Bensif Interesting. Will defo get bloods done Monday am to see liver levels then. I hope it was real - started with Pharmacom 10mg (code verified) and then switched to Rohm 50mg. Started taking TUDCA & NAC a week ago when the gastric pain really got bad (should have started with cycle really). No medications and can't remember last time I took a painkiller - probably several years. Have ordered the Betain as have heard good things.
  5. Anavar bloat/acid reflux

    Hey @swole troll, I guess they just don't agree with me - c'est la vie - the TestC cycle is great anyway - lost over 5% BF and gained almost 7lbs muscle - so delighted with that on my first cycle - in a cut too. Liver issues seems a longshot i agree. was a fairly heavy drinker in my 40's but been off the sauce completely for almost 4 years and my liver levels are always good on my regular TRT blood tests. will post and tag if any concerns - thanks.. @Bensif Definitely noticed slow down of bowel movements and some constipation on the VAR cycle. Eased over the last couple days but then started when i took some again yesterday - have a feeling it will now get back to normal as I'm off the VAR completely - for good!
  6. Anavar bloat/acid reflux

    Hey @swole troll, Appreciate you taking the time to reply... Been on the cut for about 6 weeks, gastric problems really only began a short while into the cycle. At first it was the acid reflux but ACV initially fixed that but then the bloating and gastric pain kicked in. Cut out a few things to see if they were the cause like sugar free energy drinks, malitol, euthrytol, Cruciferous Vegetables, onions, wheat etc. but no improvement. Kefir did help with the acid reflux when it came back. Stopped taking the VAR 4 days ago and bloating/pain virtually disappeared- took 25mg this morning and it came back with a vengeance after lunch and for the rest of the day. 1850cals atm and its pretty clean. Lots of fresh fruit, yoghurt, kefir, lots of veg (no starchy veg) and salad, rice and of course lots of protein (chicken, turkey, steak, fish, protein shakes). It's fairly bland and boring and thankfully only for 2 more weeks :-) Without being alarmist could the gastric issues be a sign of liver damage? I know its unlikely on VAR but.... Planned to get my TRT plus check done at 5 weeks to make sure my levels were all good (have years of TRT baseline to compare) but thought i may bring it forward just to doublecheck liver values.
  7. Afternoon all, At just under 4 weeks weeks of first cycle (pre holiday cut) of TestC 250mg p/w (just increased to 300mg) and 50mg Anavar ED. Unfortunately had to drop the VAR 3 days ago as just got sick of the stomach bloating/pain and acid reflux. Tried @swole troll suggested Kefir, degistive enzymes, ACV and they helped with the reflux but the stomach issues remained. Real shame as was really loving the pumps, hardness, vascularity and strength. I looked at injectable VAR as a possible way around these symptoms - but seems very hard to source legit stuff. Would injectable Winstrol be a decent alternative to avoid the stomach issues? - my supplier has 50mg/ml Pharmacom. And if yes, would dosage should i be looking at for a first cycle? For context been on TRT for several years at approx 100mg p/w + 100iu HCG ED.
  8. Studies have shown a potential risk between OSA and testosterone at TRT levels let alone at cycle levels. Personally I tested positive for borderline moderate OSA several years back and it worsened to severe with the TRT. But modern CPAP machines are amazing - climate control, humidifiers and with the non invasive pillow or nasal masks it's not a chore using one anymore. I tried every possible apnea/snoring treatment from sprays, mouthguards to SmartNora - looked at surgery too but success rate is low and has hellish recovery. Although there is a surgeon in Switzerland who claims high success rates but sure its very very expensive. Nothing worked for me except CPAP, and no snoring so wife is delighted.
  9. s**t anavar

    @stuey99 TestC 250mg p/w (just increased fom my TRT dose (97.5mg) for the cycle) and 100ui HCG ED
  10. s**t anavar

    @stuey99 Haha, half this forum seems split between loving Anavar and 'Anavar is a birds steroid'.. I may opt for something stronger in the future but for a first cycle (at the age of 50) Anavar seemed a sensible choice - especially on a pre holiday cut..
  11. s**t anavar

    @stuey99 If the best is yet to come then I'll really happy :-) I'm sure placebo is part of it, although the pumps are visibily real and the PB's don't lie. Was originally going to run it for 6 weeks but thinking will now do 8 weeks - and have a blood test and if everythings good run it for max 10 weeks. Too long?
  12. Rhom anavar-Legit?

    @Sustanation Hey buddy, wondering if you tried the Betane and if it helped? I've doubled down on the cider vinegar (3 times a day) and also added acidic foods like pickled onions (sorry wife!) and gotta say the reflux has gone completely. Credit to a @swole troll post where he discusses that most acid reflux could actually be caused by the body not actually producing enough acid to break down meals.
  13. s**t anavar

    @Harry24 Exactly 3 weeks into my first cycle - with 250mg TestC p/w, and Pharmacom/Rohm Anavar 50mg ED. Can't believe how much stronger its making me with new PB's at every session. The pumps are great and I've burnt a fair amount of fat as well (in a cut). Both the pharmacom and Rohm give me a pump about an hour after taking the split dose - which seems to be the norm - so if you're not getting that I guess its bunk gear..
  14. Antibiotic Acne Cream

    @Djibril Gonna chuck my tuppence worth in here. Recently started a mini cycle with TestC and Anavar (been on TRT for several years) and I got a bad breakout on back/shoulders/chest - skin felt ultra oily and full of sebum.. Was looking at going down the pharma route and then stumbled upon some doctor studies that showed great success with Vitamin B5 Pantothenic Acid and L-Carnitine. Was dubious tbh but though I'd give a go and the treatment is side-effect free. Within a week the acne had significantly cleared up and skin feels back to normal. 10 days now and no new pimples. One of the studies: http://truemedmd.com/2014/03/b5-pantethine-l-carnitine-acne/
  15. Rhom anavar-Legit?

    Started my cycle with Pharmacom Anavar and i was getting acid reflux as well. Found taking it on a full stomach with protein shake and a teaspoon of organic cider vinegar (prior to the meal) fixed it..
