Sir this wasn’t my intention. Rather I wanted to state OP shouldn’t be drinking to self medicate. If self medication was the goal (which I don’t recommend) at the very least benzodiazepines are indicated for the treatment of acute anxiety whereas alcohol is strictly a recreational drug (though it can be beneficial for essential tremors and the likes).
I suppose, though I personally find it hard to believe anyone could react this badly from less than 1/2ml of masteron within a window of a few hours. @lordgains would be more versed to clarify though as he is a pharmacist.
I don’t think a long estered drug like masteron enanthate (I assume enanthate as he is using with test cyp) would even begin to release into the bloodstream within a few hours post use.
I’d understand if he was having an acute reaction to a shot of tren ace, TNE, certain orals, clen etc but I’m hard pressed to believe someone can have such a deleterious reaction to a long estered drug in the timeframe if a few hours
Take test for example, I turn into a bloatlord on dosages above 150mg/wk. If I was to take a 250mg shot of test E it takes 24-36 hours prior to water retention becoming apparent, then another 2-3 days before I start breaking out in acne.
To offer some help I’d first state 80mg is a low dose, if it really is the mast chances are any discomfort be over soon, within the next week or two. If it’s mast prop even sooner, within a few days.
There’s a possibility OP has offset the balance of androgen/E2 and he isn’t reacting kindly, there’s also AAS mediated neurological dysregulation of which some can be particularly sensitive to. Some simply can’t tolerate androgens/AAS at all! But as I’ve specified, if it’s mast E, chances are this isn’t the mast if the negative reaction was elicited over the span of a few hours.
If the anxiety is severe OP could try book an appointment with a doctor of which he has a good relationship with and try to explain his circumstances if possible. If depression is culpable for the majority of OP’s vested symptomatology benzodiazepines would be a bad idea.
Should also be noted SSRI’s/SNRI’s, tricyclic antidepressants and MAOI’s aren’t the only meds available for treatment of depression. Bupropion (NDRI) is relatively fast acting in comparison to SSRI’s and SNRI’s, though not good enough for acute management.
I have insomnia (due to persistent pain and discomfort), when it gets really bad I can sometimes acquire a script for 3-5 benzodiazepine tablets at a time. I take them a few times per month when things get really rough
I never said you were suggesting this. You’re putting words in my mouth.
If OP becomes accustomed to using alcohol as a crutch to treat depression or anxiety it can lead to a recurrent pattern of behaviour down the line. I’ve done this with alcohol before. I used to drink quite a bit prior to attending large gatherings as it’d calm my nerves/anxieties about socialising.
Soon I found instead of dealing with the anxiety I’d just resort to drinking three or four beers before going out (this was a while back). This wasn’t a healthy relationship with alcohol, I wasn’t an addict; though I was using the substance as a crutch.
It started as a once off through recommendation from an adult when I was around seventeen “I’ll swing back a couple of drinks to feel more comfortable in an otherwise new and unknown paridigm” and turned into “I’ll drink every time before I go out if the environment is foreign to me”… Then it turned into “I’ll drink when I feel down or insecure” at which point I realised I was using alcohol to cover perceived vulnerability, but instead of working on the emotional groundwork that led to me feeling vulnerable I focused on eliminating the physical sensation by any means possible.
I was never an alcoholic, though had I kept going down that line I wouldn’t have put it past me as alcohol (out of everything I ever tried back in the day) seems to be the most enjoyable (to me)
Upon realising this relationship was a toxic dynamic I ceased the pattern of behaviour immediately. No one ever said anything because drinking is suuuppper encouraged amongst the young adult/student demographic. It should be noted drinking was generally a given upon arrival to these events, it was the “pre” drinking and rocking up a little bit tipsy that was particularly problematic in my eyes.
I’ve seen similar patterns of behaviour devolve into flat out substance dependence and addiction within others.
I hardly ever drink now, I find it to be an expensive waste of time suitable only for special occasions.
