    Storing test cyp

    I was wanting to know how you store test cyp. The reason I ask is I got my first prescription when I started, went back to get blood work and they gave me another prescription. So I have 500mg left in the first batch. Do I need to store it in the refrigerator or is it okay just in the medicine cabinet. I would like to keep in case I ever decide to blast. Also how long will it last and still be good?

    Never refrigerate!

    I keep it in the cabinet but can't answer your shelf life question.

    Usually the box that the vial comes in has an expire date on it. I keep my vial in the box as the instructions say keep away from light and about room temperature. I store mine in a drawer in my bath sink area. I'd say always keep the box that it comes in.

    An expiration date on the box. Who would have thunk it!

    Thanks for the advice. I have it in the box it came in so I will look for the expiration date on there.

    I keep the box in case I need to travel. It has the prescription and doctor info on it in case, I don't know, I get stopped going 120 in a 55 and they want to search my car or something.

    They other issues seem to already be covered, including the all important peanut butter/refrigeration issue.

    The date on the box assumes a two year shelf life, this is a US standard that almost any medicine will keep for so it simplifies individual testing of compounds for actual shelf life. That said AAS particularly CYP will keep 5 years no problem as long as its kept out of sunlight at a steady temp of 60-80f and moisture and pressure are kept at normal levels.

    By the way storing in the bathroom will not be a problem short term, but its the worst location in the house as moisture will of course migrate through a septum to some extent and the bathroom has the highest moisture of any room in the house.

    Now I feel really good about keeping my T in my home office cabinet, right next to my wife's porn DVD's.
