: 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
All right I am going to lay it down for all of you in easy terms.
I was treated for 2 years straight on this subject. Rather than having me come off the
juice they kept me on to do full test on and off. What they concluded is that the test only elevates the
situation after the cycle. The real cause is a chemical imbalance in the brain which zoloft controls. I am such
a small dose per my doctor in order not to interfere with my cycles. I have been using zoloft
for 3 1/2 years and it has not hindered me one bit. Higher doses on the other hand will. 25mg is half a pill
you have to cut a 50 mg because they don't even make a 25mg. Xanax on the other hand is a muscle relaxer which
shouldn't be used often. I used it only in the beggining when it was most difficult. I know longer need any of it but
I still take the zoloft to keep the chemical signals correct. My syptoms were a full release of adrenaline from my kidneys
which made me vomit in turn made me feel like the whole world was about to end. All this in a matter
of seconds. When I didn't know how to control it..it would last for weeks non-stop. Try thinking you are dead meat every minute
of the day. But it was all easily fixed with relaxing and breathing like all these guys have said. Thing of the good man not the bad.
Hang in there we are pullin for ya.
