I have a few questions about NPP that hopefully the vets can answer.
Does anyone have experience running NPP at a low dose (200mg or less) per week for the joint relief. If so what is your protocol and what are you specifically trying to combat (overuse / preventative / arthritis)?
I am at the end of my first cycle, 10th week of 600mg test-e. The test was well tolerated, almost all of the sides were positive. I am relatively young (35) but my joints are trashed, it is genetic (osteoporosis). From week three on my muscles could not be fatigued and I really pushed myself to get the most out of the cycle, I am not injured but my body doesn’t feel great and I was considering cruising on 200mg of test per week for the next 4 weeks and adding 100/200 mg of NPP then transitioning into PCT. I am not here looking for someone to confirm that this is a good idea, I am hoping for a rebuttal and an education.
What is the probability that NPP at a low dose will cause prolactin issues? Should I keep caber at the ready or dose it EOD along with the NPP?
I have heard the Deca/NPP joint relief characterized as “Lubrication” but I could not find a specific credible scientific explanation for the effect. Is it due to anti-inflammation or increased collagen synthesis or something else?
My PCT is going to be Nolva @ 20mg for 8 weeks, I am aware that I do not want to start the nolva until 100% of the NPP is gone but is there any reason for me to change my planned PCT protocol based on extending to 14 weeks and adding the NPP.
Thank you for any information you can provide,
