    Watson vs Perrigo

    This is curious. Been on my protocol for about a year, everything has been good. All of a sudden I'm getting what is similar to Bacne. So there were only two changes made: started taking Cialis 5 mg daily and my test brand changed. Came off the Cialis and still there. I'm going to schedule some BW since its been a while since I've checked test and E. Could one brand be stronger than another and be causing a spike in E2? I haven't had any other symptoms, just curious if any of you have experienced this.

    Changes in diet? Or stress?

    Very familiar with Watson, but didn’t know that Perrigo made a generic Test Cyp. Test Cyp Injection is a United States Pharmacopeia (USP) listed product. The USP are a set of officially established specifications that product(s) must meet as part of the overall FDA approval process before entering US commerce. Perrigo is one of the world's largest generic manufacturers, so I doubt they (or anyone) would deviate from their listed label Assay of 200 mgs/ml. However, for many USP listed products, I’ve heard some firms can utilize different manufacturing routes and/or add different preservatives to maintain stability which some people may be sensitive to. I would speculate that what your experiencing is most likely just a fluke…

    Don't generics have to be +/- 20% as potent as name brand?

    Generics have to meet the same label claims as the original, patented product that was on the market before it went generic after the patent expiry. I havent heard of the FDA allowing a +/- 20% potency on Generic made products. That's a huge percentage which could render some drugs ineffective and/or create toxic levels of the active ingredient in the patient if you think about it...

    I get bacne flare ups from time to time also. Not sure why it happens. And I've actually lowered my T dose! Nothing else changed.
