    Ketotifen/clen magic

    I guess you can use clen for many weeks with little downregulation with the help of an antihistamine. Ketotifen is supposed to work good. Anyone try this? I have no clue where to get it, is it over the counter? What is a good alternative that i can easily get? benadryl? help!! my clen is coming into use soon...

    I have heard that you can use Benadryl. I will try to find where I saw this. I just started my clen /t3 cycle and plan on using Benadryl as an antihistamine.

    Here is a thread that may be helpful to you:
    Which Benadryl and how much, with clen?

    you can totally use benadryl, 100mg/day every third week, for a week...cycling clen is no longer necessary...i believe this is posted in the edu threads, but it might have been something i saw in the old profile section...WHICH NEEDS TO COME BACK ASAP!!!!!

    You probably heard it from me or someone repeating me...

    This is the thread where I told AR that Benadryl could be used to upgrade Beta-receptors:


    question about ephedra...

    But I had figured that our months and months beforehand and told the members of BB4L about it. I had the hypothesis and tested it on myself...later, I was given the research to back up my findings, since I couldn't find it at first....I was the first dude on the 'net to figure out you could use Benadryl for this purpose, actually...so wherever you heard it...it came (in some way) from me.

    And I thought that I was arrogant. Kudos Hooker, you are the man.

    Well...I'm certainly not modest...it's against my beliefs...anyway, Benadryl will upgrade beta-receptors, but ketotifen is good for other stuff, especially pct...here's why:

    Ketotifen lowers levels of the cytokine Tumor Necrosis Factor-alpha (TNF-alpha), which is a catabolic hormone, and this is a property that Benadryl does not have to my knowledge. TNF-alpha lowers both testosterone and IGF-1 levels (3)(4), and strenuous exercise elevates TNF-alpha levels (5). Ketotifen's anabolic effects seem to be overshadowed (rendered inert) by anabolic steroids (1), however, so I reccomend it only during pct.

    (Taken partly from my Ketotifen Profile)

    Resistance training causes a spike in testosterone levels ...overtaining can lower them.

    TNF-levels are raised by any kind of stress.

    Yeah....I use the CVS brand.

    The whole reason I even bothered researching Benadryl as an alternative to Ketotifen was because I wanted the average person who was using clen to be able to buy a $5 bottle of Benadryl at their local drugstore to upgrade their receptors, instead of a $50 bottle of Ketotifen they'd need to buy online or import from some overseas pharmacy.

    Im reading about Keto a lot. Here is a helpfull thread on it, even though it has been made clear benedryl can work, i just like to explore compounds that are new to me...

    Ketotifen - what you need to know!

    Im wondering if lion will carry it soon? I found it elsewhere, it is a little pricey, and i trust lion...

    I thought that you had to take Benedryl starting on the third week throughout the rest of the time on? Hooker can you clear this up for me?

    Sorry I missed you on IM yesterday. It's not just any anti-histimine though...its a certain class of drugs...

    Remember, Benadryl is also sold (under a different name) as a sleep aid, as is Ketotifen...and you can't make the claim that "sleeping pills will upregulate beta receptors." Many won't...as many antihistimines won't upregulate beta-receptors.
