Yeh I noticed, but I guess the chances for getting covid is even higher than getting the side effects. Also I guess covid can be really bad if you get it while on aas, especially like tren? I guess you didnt take the vaccine?
1. Covid will kill less than 99% of the people that contract it. The news pumps out fear porn which has people losing their minds in fear. This is likely for political reasons but i won't get into that here.

2. There are cheap and safe medications with decades of safety data that will stop a bad covid case in it's tracks. Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine.

3. These are facts^ I'm from NYC and in the healthcare field, i am in the middle of the "warzone". I have seen +80 year old with HIV, COPD, diabetes and CHF survive covid-19. What do you think the chances are for a younger, relatively healthy person with support of the medications i mentioned above^.


You and everyone you know has already likely had covid and most don't even know it. Asymptomatic cases are extremely common as i'm sure you have met someone who found out they had it ONLY because they got testing done.


I don't recommend the vaccines and won't take it. It's not actually vaccine either.

@ElChapo What is some reliable, unbiased sources or research to follow and keep well informed on with coronavirus matters and implications/conclusions drawn with the negative impact of these vaccines? basically what outlets are actually being objective and reliable and worth following or sourcing information from?

I like to go straight to the raw data, and even that can be adulterated and polluted with political/financial bias, but it tends to be "cleaner" than the evening news rags and papers who make a lot of money off fear mongering. You can read the research papers directly. A lot of the information i cite is directly from the CDC (Like the extremely high survival rate of covid/etc).


At the end of the day, you need to use sound judhement and critical thinking to filter the trash from the more reliable information, no matter where it comes from.

Could you please reply with some links mate? I can only ever seem to find mainstream supported tosh, would google scholar and pubmed be reliable? I’m not familiar with CDC?

@ElChapo I've starting taking an SSRI and unfortunately it increase my prolactin levels and gives gyno.
I can't use caber while on it, I'm taking P-5-P but it doesn't seem to work.

Do you think adding raloxifene would help for prolactin gyno?

Epoch times is a good news source. They have a covid section on their site.


Scholar and pubmed are fine, but remember, even studies can have biases via funding or political pressure, so it's up to you to catch things that don't add up.

Have you tried wellbutrin instead? SSRIs i generally recommend against due to sexual side effects and weight gain as well as dependence that builds to it.


Do you have bipolar disorder? Have you tried addressing depression issues in other ways? If you are in the UK, you may not be getting enough sunlight. Make sure you get enough carbs (increases serotonin naturally) and that your thyroid hormones and testosterone, estradiol, vitamin D are all optimal.


Ralox might work, but SSRIs are nasty stuff. why cant you take caber?

Not yet , been on Sertraline since some weeks and it only started to work.
I take it for anxiety , not depression , Wellbutrin is not advised for me since it can heightened anxiety.

Caber are dopamine agonist and it can be dangerous to take with the SSRI I take since it also touch dopamine , to a lesser degree.
I just started raloxifene, but tbh I hate It , I get low mood and feminizing effect on it like my voice is softer when I talk , but it used to work well for my gyno symptoms.

Yes SSRI are nasty stuff, It took me 6 years to start it , been suffering from anxiety since more than 10 years and lately it got so bad that I accepted to try medication.
Gyno from it really sucks.. but everytime something increase my prolactin levels I get it .

Do you eat low carb or keto diet? Are you maintaining very low body fat year round? Do you do HIIT? Cardio? Do you have rest days? Do you drink coffee or take stimulants/preworkout?

I know what caber is, there is no interaction between it and SSRI that is significant. SSRI doesnt really hit dopamine and in fact, some ssri may decrease dopamine.


Here is a study where caber was given for SSRI induced gyno: [Duloxetine Associated Galactorrhea and Hyperprolactinemia: A Case Report] - PubMed


Of course, SSRI was discontinued in that study. Let me know more about your diet and lifestyle, there may be something you can address without drugs to relieve the anxiety.

I'm not on low carb , but I'm on a diet since some weeks for cutting , I'm low bf (9-10%) , 12% year round and 6-10% during summer.
I do HIIT, cardio everyday after my 2h training, 2 rest days , I do take coffee but only 200mg.

I do take all healthy supplements since years , my anxiety is from when I was really young , it's been almost 10 years I'm seing a psy , it does help but never cured it.
The covid situation made it worse to the point where I had anxiety attack during the night.. which was horrible.

SSRI was prescribed in 2015 , I took 6 years to finally start it. Yes I really wanted to avoid it , really.
It was like my last thing to try , my last "hope" to help my anxiety problems. (it runs in family too but I'm the worst)

Since some days I'm seing anxiety relief from the SSRI , but damn the prolactin issue is annoying (many other sides too but they are not that bad anymore).
I started Ralox yesterday and in an hour the pain stopped ( I had the pain since 5 days and there is fatty gyno growth already..)
I hate ralox tbh , it make me depressed and less talkative , I already feel it.

I had a question in mind since some time,

Does Tbol affect dopamine release?

I took Tbol 3 times , and everytime I had like a dopamine boost then a crash/lethargy (even with perfect liver/blood values).
Also I had the 3 times a bad time after the Tbol stoppage, I had low mood/felt sad for like 2 weeks. (I was still on TRT).

Does Tbol deplete dopamine ?

Also, does Raloxifene reduce water retention?
It looks like I hold a bit less water everytime I use it, but not sure if it's from it or just the cutting diet

Do higher carb diets and or higher food intakes negatively impact your cognition/executive functioning? I have heard people state that fasting they think sharper, don’t experience as much brain fog etc.

Have you ever tried magnesium glycinate+Vitamin C combo? Are you on any TRT right now?

yes I'm taking them, also Magnesium L-threonate morning and before sleep (sleeping better with it).
My vitamins/bloods are perfect , pre SSRI.
I'm on self TRT , 80mg test P e3d . E2 in range too , being doing this 80mg since a year and is perfect.

Also, I'm really annoyed , the med started to work for my anxiety some days ago and I'm happy with it because the first few weeks were hell , but since 10 days I get gyno from it so I started ralox 4 days ago at 60mg, it stopped the itch/pain/growth for 2 days but now since 2 days it hurts again and grows more..
Should I up to 120mg?

I also have an appointment with a Dr next month, to talk about surgery but they don't know I'm using test, they will send me see an endo , do bloods etc.

Edit: I'm asking you for the 120mg ralox, because it's an anti cancer drug and I know it's not healthy and 120mg is a big dose.
Whats your thought about it ? I can try 1-2 days at 120mg and see if it stop completely the pain/growth

Ralox/nolva is a marathon, not a sprint. We see that SERMs will reverse the gyno from SSRIs but only when you discontinue the drug has it been proven to work.

Hi El Chapo

Can you take a look at my bloods please? I was taking 300testE, 200mast per week and 25mg proviron per day. Ive stopped as I was getting headaches and slightly elevated blood pressure. Anything on the bloods apart from kidneys that would be causing it?

Hi @ElChapo

Can winstrol have a negative effect on digestion?
I've been using 50mg per day for 3 weeks (first time using winstrol) and started to suffer indigestion and acid reflux and can't eat as much as I did without feeling sick and full on meals I normally eat every day but since adding winstrol I'm struggling to eat sometimes which isn't good as I'm on a cycle, I literally struggle to eat my post work out meal where as before it was my favourite meal of the day (biggest meal) im feeling quite lethargic too and low energy which is strange. Only running 300mg test e a week along side the winnie and never had issue before with test so heading towards winstrol? Going to do e2 bloods next week as the low energy can be from elevated e2.

Many thanks

Yeah, your hematocrit is extremely high. So your blood is thicker. This can cause headaches and facial flushing, high BP. It may increase the risk of stroke/heart attack. Donating blood will bring it down but will also drop your iron stores. It may take about 2-3 donations to get it back into range but if you don't supplement heavily with iron, you will become anemic.


Keep eye on thyroid (looks sluggish) and prolactin (elevated).

Yes, not an uncommon side effect from orals. Oral AAS can affect bile flow which can affect digestion. Were you taking any TUDCA? The TUDCA stops the bile flow from being impaired by oral AAS. This is also one of the main ways it prevents liver toxicity.


Are you taking any liver protection? Your liver might be stressed. Some people are more sensitive than others to oral AAS/liver issues and if you are drinking alcohol, even occasionally, it can have a negative effect.
