    Holding water

    My present cycle is 750 deca and test - 4 days drol and 3 days var
    Also 2 iu Hgh and 30 iu slin.
    I am holding a lot of water. You can see where my socks were on my lower leg.

    Problem: I am holding water and my BP is high (160-170 without meds). I was taking metaprolol for afib and just increased it from 50 to 100mg 2x day. Prescribed 25 mg for afib.
    I took 1/2 pill dyazide and 5 mg eloquis. I am going to get telimismartan for BP and water retention. I also quit Hgh and slin because those hold water with me.
    Anything that I am missing?

    Changed to atenolol and another 1/2 of dyazide and was 135/85 this morning. Not sure if it was the water that I lost or the change in beta blocker. Just happy that I have it under control. Sort of scary seeing 160-170 consistently.

    You’re insane < don’t take it the wrong way. Lol


    I added half a pill of potassium to my BP med regimen daily, along with a cucumber juice mix - seems to help a ton


    But, what you cycle in a week lasts me for two months(almost)

    Damn Sampson- this is moderate for me.
    Glad I wasn’t doing phase cycling…. 1500 test, 750 deca .
    I was going to try the S&D solution of adding mast if things didn’t get better.

    My BP was good yesterday morning and then in the afternoon it was high again. I took atenolol and 1/2 dyazide. This morning it was 124/83.
    I have at least figured out how to control it.
    Does anyone know why metaprolol was not giving me the results of atenolol?

    I sit back and laugh. I want to get big so I cycle ….. then I need to take something else to counter the sides, and something else to counter that. LOL

    You look jacked, better than me for sure. You probably don't care what I think, but I'd be trying to do anything to extend my life at your age, not shorten it. I guess everyone has their reasons.

    I really am not trying to shorten my life, however I was bitten at a late age by competing and I would probably sit around eating donuts if I did t. There is no midway. I am either off or on.
    I really do try and stay healthy. I see the Dr and get physicals. I have had my heart measured and know exactly dimensions. I have had ultrasounds of my kidneys, etc.
    I had cancer and if it wasn’t for steroids , it probably would not have been found. I had no symptoms.

    Am I the perfect specimen for healthy? No.
    I know my body well enough to know something is wrong. I am much quicker at trying to get it resolved than when I was younger.
    I will take cycles that are more than what others take… and less than others…. But I do not go for extended periods. I am consistent at cruising and trying to get my body in homeostasis. That is the secret.
    Things are getting harder to do at my age.

    I'm on 80 mg lisinopril and 25 mg metropolol as we speak. Been on this for years (well, atenolol before and losartan, but same shit). Why don't you like them?

    Metaprolol did not seem to do anything however atenolol does.

    Much better. You can see from the BP graph that they have been reduced. Diuretics played a big role in bringing it down.

    I can't run diuretics any more at all, ever since the inner cranial explosion


    Tried a handful of times, and every time the next day I'd feel like I got hit with a 2x4 upside my head - once, I sent myself right back into an MRI the next following day


    Darn brain damage


    I do natural diuretics - cucumber juice, celery, coffee, etc.
