Can you grow from taking the anti-depressant Paxil? It is a fact that you gain weight while using it. Can I make this weight muscle, or will it necessarily be fat?
: :Okay, first you have to ask yourself one question, is it worth taking juice and feeling like crap. I have been through exactly what you are describing with the depression. It sucks, you feel like you are worthless, you don't care about eating, and you don't care about lifting. Mine got to the point where my grades started going down because i didn't want to go to class anymore. I have found a happy medium. When I am unable to take juice, i have to diet, i have to get the idea in my head that i am going to get ripped up. Its to the point where I have to be dieting or growing to be happy. sounds strange but it works for me. The reason it helps me i think is because as i am getting leaner i start to like the way i look again, just the same as when i am growing i like the way i look(even if i am a fat ass) its just the thought that you are getting big or getting ripped, also when i am dieting, it makes me feel good to see the veins, the striations, etc... I hope this helps, i know what it feels like
: to get down.
: : 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
: : I can't recommend anything because I haven't had similar experiences. Well, yes I have but I wasn't on a cycle. I'll let the gurus discuss/handle this in depth but the two things I have read about for dealing with depression is St John's Wort and the amino acid tyrosine. Maybe the others could comment on any possible conflicts between these and AS. Good luck, be strong. Things get better!
