So in doing my research over the last 48hrs, by no means exhaustive, I've come to learn that most deca users who were successful in managing side effects did so with several combinations of test, HCG, proviron, and caber. All were on test, most on a dose higher than their deca dose. The most effective combination of assistance/ancillaries seemed to be hCG and caber, with a few users also taking proviron.
I don't have any interest in adding another AAS to the mix this early, so I'll probably steer clear of proviron until I have a good understanding of what effects the test, AI, and hCG all have on me. If we go the deca route I will also ask for some caber to have on hand. With test-cyp, hCG, caber, and adex I should be pretty well prepared to handle low dose deca for a period.
Yogi, can you elaborate on what your stack looked like when deca messed you up? hCG? Caber?
All that said, I am definitely going to see if Anavar is an option, and if so I will probably try to go that route. My lipids are remarkably good, so I'll probably tolerate it pretty well.
