    Sleepy on cycle

    Hi guys,

    I am feeling extremely sleepy on my current cycle which is Test-P and NPP both running at 500mg/wk. Is that simply a side effect or which blood test would be most relevant to run to find out the cause?

    Thanks

    You got anything physical going on, like sleep apnea?

    Just not going to worry about this. Having great progress in terms of strength so it will be a problem for another day!

    Songdog, trust me when I say that if leaving Bangalore for Ithaca tomorrow was a good option, we would :-)

    In my case, was E2 culprit. When it's out of range, lower or higher, tiredness and lack of energy and sleepness, could be a frequent symptoms. Check E2 in first attempt.

    The guy ran a Thyroid panel instead. What an idiot. Back today to have them run the right one. Luckily it only cost me $8. In good news, those values look good :-)

    Found some old advice from Kelkel with a guy having the exact same readings and problem. He upped Dex to .5 EOD (From .25 EOD) and it dropped down to acceptable levels. Think I'll try that and re-test in a week.

    Three blood tests in as many days, you know what they say, can never have too many blood tests. Doubt anyone says that but checked my RBC count also.

    RED BLOOD CELL COUNT
    Test Result
    5.83 mill/cmm

    Biological Reference Range
    4.2-6.5 mill/cmm

    Yes, but where is HCT ? you already have the indicator of your symptoms ( high E2 ). Yes, you RBC are versus the upper range level so the HCT could be high, but it's not granted.

    Haha, not running back. Feel comfortable with the plan forward. Got a complete set of blood tests in mid-December anyways.

    For anyone having the same issue. Upping my Dex to .5 EOD (From .25 EOD) have resolved my issue.

    The cycle for REF:
    Test-P 500mg/wk
    NPP 500mg/wk
