: i am having some side effects not frequently discussed here. some of you may know who i am, from my previous posting style. but anyways, i am experiencing some serious side effects from the test propionate and deca i am taking. i am experiencing depression, pretty serious and some anxiety. they seem to hit frequently at night just around bed time. these are the only real side effets i am experiencing from these drugs. no acne, no water retention nothing to speak of, except the fore mentioned. has anyone had experience dealing with this? if so please respond. big canuck or hulkster you may know how to alleviate these somewhat. could i take st johns whort? it seems to help a freind of mine who has depression. my girlfriend and i broke up after i started my cycle and it(the depression) has been a constant damper on my cycle(mentally). any informed responses would be appreciated. thanks--a.f.t.p
There's a definite biological/hormonal base to mood swings and depression. Hence the popularity of prozac and it's relatives. You don't say if you have ever expereinced these symptoms in a milder way before the current cycle; you don't mention if you feel really "up" or super happy positive at other times and therefore the depression could be a rebound effect; also, is there any history of depression, mood swings or amnic depression in your family tree? You could very well have inherited a hormonal cycle that makes you vunerable to mood swings and the test propionate and deca cycle may be pushing the extremes.
While you ask about a couple of other supps that might change things, I thinkyou need to ask yourself if accelerating your bb progress through this cycle is worth "breaking up with your girlfirend", " depression, pretty serious and some anxiety", and " it (the depression) has been a constant damper on my cycle(mentally). I might suggest to you the price ain't worth it.
Let us know how you do!
