    nolvadex?

    I'm going to start a cycle of Test E, Dbol & Deca I was just wondering why people prefer Nolvadex over Proviron ? Seems that Proviron would solve the problem w/estrogen & retaining water (blocking the cells completly). I'm just a novice at this so maybe some of you more seasoned bro's can tell me why anyone would choose Nolvadex over Proviron.

    Peace

    Use them both. Provirion reduces aromatization and estrogen bloating, nova keep any extra estrogen from binding to your breats and hypothamus and pitutary.

    use vitamin B6 aswell, 200mg/day for the deca . nolva (privirion aswell i think) wont help against deca related gyno as its not caused by estrogen but progesterone (i think its called progesterone if i remember correctly).

    I only use proviron , i dont use anything that can mess with my eye's(nolva,clomid,dnp ,etc).

    Just use the proviron, and if you have any problems with the deca they are not hard to fix. But run b6 anyways ... most vitamins have b6 in them anyways so you probably already are.

    I would take vit B6 @ 100mg/ED vs 200mg/ED. B/c of this post, courtesy of MESO:
    Well can it? Here is some info even though vitamin companies still sale 250-300mg tablets...

    Too much vitamin B6 can result in nerve damage to the arms and legs. This neuropathy is usually related to high intake of vitamin B6 from supplements, [2] and is reversible when supplementation is stopped. According to the Institute of Medicine, "Several reports show sensory neuropathy at doses lower than 500 mg per day" [1]. As previously mentioned, the Food and Nutrition Board of the Institute of Medicine has established an upper tolerable intake level (UL) for vitamin B6 of 100 mg per day for all adults [1]. "As intake increases above the UL, the risk of adverse effects increases [1]."

    Vitamin B6 and the nervous system
    Vitamin B6 is needed for the synthesis of neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine . These neurotransmitters are required for normal nerve cell communication. Researchers have been investigating the relationship between vitamin B6 status and a wide variety of neurologic conditions such as seizures, chronic pain, depression, headache, and Parkinson's disease [1].

    Lower levels of serotonin have been found in individuals suffering from depression and migraine headaches. So far, however, vitamin B6 supplements have not proved effective for relieving these symptoms. One study found that a sugar pill was just as likely as vitamin B6 to relieve headaches and depression associated with low dose oral contraceptives [2].

    Alcohol abuse can result in neuropathy, abnormal nerve sensations in the arms and legs [3]. A poor dietary intake contributes to this neuropathy and dietary supplements that include vitamin B6 may prevent or decrease its incidence [1].

    Vitamin B6 and carpal tunnel syndrome
    Vitamin B6 was first recommended for carpal tunnel syndrome almost 30 years ago [4]. Several popular books still recommend taking 100 to 200 milligrams (mg) of vitamin B6 daily to treat carpal tunnel syndrome, even though scientific studies do not indicate it is effective. Anyone taking large doses of vitamin B6 supplements for carpal tunnel syndrome needs to be aware that the Institute of Medicine recently established an upper tolerable limit of 100 mg per day for adults. There are documented cases in the literature of neuropathy caused by excessive vitamin B6 taken for treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome [5].

    Hope this helps you make an informed decission on its use.
