I think Anthony Roberts answered a question of mine about Benadryl use as a way to re-boost adrenaline sensitivity after an ephedrine cycle. You can PM him. It is used as a calming agent (and to aid in restoration of normal hormonal function) in steroid cycles but I don’t know anything about that.
Ok Mertdawg… I appreciate you trying to help people and and don’t take this the wrong way, but you’re playing with people’s health when you make shit up like that.
Anthony never said anything about Benadryl’s effect on adrenaline insensitivity. It was on beta-receptors. There’s a difference there. He also said Benadryl can help prevent stimulant anxiety and can help with sleep. Perhaps you got the two mixed up somehow.
Here’s the link:
I don’t have a separate source. Long term adrenaline insensitivity is a severe and cascading problem that can lead to depression and death and it happens naturally with age anyway.
I did a google search on “adrenalin insensitivity” and it turned up 1 response, and it had nothing to do with ephedrine or Benadryl! You basically made up a term. Congratulations!
Did you mean “Adrenal Insufficiency” aka Addison’s Disease instead by any chance? It’s the failure of your body to produce cortisol, another adrenal hormone.[/quote]
No, I meant Beta down-regulation. When this happens, your tissues become less sensitive to adrenaline.
Also, if you look at your link to the Anthony Roberts thread, in the thread I sent him 2 questions within a 1 minute time frame-could benadryl aid in restoring adrenaline sensitivity after a cycle of ephedrine, and could it be used to help deal with the side effects of withdrawal. He said yes, that it could help with these. You have to know that my two posts were sent almost simultaneously to understand why I took the response this way. In case he had just skipped the first message, I told the questioner to PM him.
I did not realize that ephedrine stimulates the adrenals. I thought that it would inhibit its production. What if you inject someone with straight epinephrine? Does that stimulate the adrenals? If that were so, then adrenaline production would signal adrenaline production.
