I’m just coming off a Cycle of NPP and Test Cyp. It was more of a cruise but, I tend to respond well to low dosages. Plus I participate is a tested sport, so I do feel a bit a guilt.
My cycle was for a duration of 12 weeks at 150mg of test and 60mg of NPP (nandrolone). My intent was to never to try and get an upper hand on my competition but rather to be able to train without excessive discomfort.
I’ve recently come off NPP but stayed on test cyp because I legitimately have low testosterone. I did notice that coming off was not pleasant even at this small of a dose NPP of 20mg E2D. The only side effects that I have noticed are extremely elevated libedo and stamina as it applies intercourse. Not all bad in my mind. Initially I was taking about 120 per week and developed slight horseness with cough and started snoring, this is why I backed down. Additionally I, on occasion get cystic pimples that take weeks to heal. These pimples are completely random and happens regardless of my hygiene regimen. I was not on HCG during this time but considered it. I was however on .25 of arimadex every 3 days, however recent blood test revealed extremely low E2 so I feel going to .25 E4D would be acceptable. AST and ALT were slightly elevated, even with a liteny of liver protection supplements (milk thistle, tudca, NAC and Liv.52). HCT was nominal throughout provided that I did not take any supplements with heavy metals such as Iron and Copper. These value were elevated and nearly concerning when I was taking a Costco branded multi-vit.
After being off for about 4 weeks the joint and ligament pain is significantly noticeable. The pain is not severe but, I’m assuming is simalar to Artihritis, joint stiffness and what I would describe as being dry. Ideally I would like to stay on a cruise of 40-60mg a week but, do have some concerns as to the long term safety of doing so. If I understand correctly in the U.K. and in some situations Deca is prescribed? When Inspoke with an Osteopath the only suggestion that was given to me was Cortisone which in the long run will do more harm than good. It not clear to me is Nandralone is as harmful as cortisone or is it the lesser of two evils. I see very little negatives right now, and plan to myopicly monitor my health through ongoin quarterly blood tests. So with that said, am I crazy to think that I can remain on Nandralone long term with microdosing?
