    The flu symtoms could be caused by the test (or yes, it could just be the flu)... I get joint pains from Eq (I don't think you need to run Eq that high!). And the headaces are probably caused by high blood pressure. You are on some high dosages there so take it easy. Good luck!

    The headaches/vision could be caused by introducing t-3 at 150mcg ed from the start. I like to ramp it up, although not nearly as slow as others. It usually takes me a week to hit 150mcg. How high are you going with it?

    I swear by ibuprofen. I usually mix it with some tylenol. Couple people I know would just shoot some bain, but smart not too... I don't like messing with addictive substances either. Except for testosterone .

    peace

    That's bullshit about never exceding 125mcg... I believe in 1mcg per lb. I'll be going up around 200-250mcg soon but i'll be running over a gram of test with it to prevent catabolism. I will pyramid up a bit though.

    deca would definitely help. alternatively, you could ditch the winny. either way, you can try chondroitin sulfate w/glucosamine.

    Deca will help considerably on the joint pain. I think most of those syptoms are coming from starting the T-3 so high. I get those symptoms and I usually start at a much lower dose and do a quick ramp up.

    winny is well reputed for drying the joints out, but i'd take rickson's advice. i don't know anything about t3.

    i agree that chondroitin sulfate will help with the joint pain. if your not going to ditch the winny and dont start deca than and are going to take something for the pain itself go with Viox in my opinion it works better than ibuprofen and its easier on the digestive track. Just tell your doc your joints hurt at night and most docs will give you a script. Shit my doc just gives me a shit load of the samples to take with me.

    correct me if i'm wrong, but isn't vioxx hard on the liver? My dad was taking it along with cartia and he had to go for monthly liver checks.

    I believe you are mistaken(not a flame). Viox is a non-steriodal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID such as ibuprofen), But more specifically a Cox-2 inhibitor. Viox and celebrex fall under this category and one reason they are prescribed for is arthritis in older people due the the fact that it is easier on the digestive tract. Ibuprofen tends to cause ulcers when used for long periods of time and Vioxx lessens the risks and is just as effective if not more. Hell they even prescribe the shit to women for cramps. My girl loves the stuff and that makes me a happy camper all month long.

    Yes, if you have severe joint pain, Winstrol will definitely make it worse. I had to quit taking Winstrol in week 4 because it dried the hell out of me. Remember to take Glucosamine/Chondroitin, though it will take about a month to see results from it.

    It's just my two cents worth of advice but from what I've seen that seems like a way high dose of EQ to me too. I've seen posts by people who had to lower the dose from only 600mg/wk because of anxiety problems and/or high blood pressure.

    And Winny can not only cause joint pain but do actual damage, at least it has to some of the bros I've talked to.

    Well, you've gotten a lot of responses already, but from my three experiences of using chondroitin sulfate w/glucosamine, it was not a preventative or a reliever. I wish I could give dosages, but I never wrote down the specifics. However, that stuff, I swear (my opinion) made my joints more suseptable to pain and injury. I was a wrestler, and while on the two I dislocated a finger and the joint was inflamed...I messed up a knee. This could all be coincidence. Then I went on it again, just before college and during the summer working on a retail floor my knees would get tired. Then I did it again in college and my knees would get tired and fatigued. My legs would have more to go in them, but knees really felt exhausted. I've never injested those two compounds since, and have experienced only minor symptoms of the above mentioned.

    That's my personal experience.

    I do read that deca is wonderous on your joints. Pay attention to the vets. My post was purely personal experience and opinion.

    Good to here about the Vioxx doing some good and good choice on adding the deca . About the Vioxx you can bump it up to 25mg with no problem. that is a moderate dose. Happy lifting
