    Gear shelf-life

    After hanging around for a while, I have decided to hold off on my 1st ever cycle till I am completely prepared, both physically an mentally.

    I am just wondering how long I can keep my 20 amps of test for without losing any potencey. Is it possible for gear to "go bad" , I plan on storing it in a cool dark area for a while till I am ready.

    My gear is still in the origional amps......

    I just checked a couple of my vials and the ex date shows that they last about three years. I dont know if it will be the same for you but I think that you should have at least a year or so. How long are you going to wait?

    Once the expiration date is reached, the drug loses 10% potency.

    Do you know this for sure? Can you show any proof of this, or is it your opinion? I use medicine all the time that is past, sometimes far past the exp. date with no difference in effect. I wouldn't save it for 10-15 years, but the period the author is considering waiting will have no effect on his gear.

    Moto, it really depends on what type you are using. If you are using a liquid, such as an injectable steriod , than it will lose potency. But some tablets can go for many years after their expiration date and still retain maximum potency.

    Here is a good link: http://www.medletter.com/freedocs/expdrugs.pdf

    I have a pharmacist in the family and he said once that for safety reasons, most medicines and suppliments will have expiration dates that are actually "half" of the time they actually expect the stuff to go bad. In other words its labled to go bad in 4 years but reality can still be perfectly good for 8 years.
