Title: Thyroid, Adrenal, Cabergoline and Improved Erections
Post by: mrmagoo2010 on May 24, 2013, 05:42:09 pm
Thanks Peak, it already starting to take shape now, highish prolactin, lowish test, highish TSH and low iron, all indicative of thyroid/adrenal issues

adrenal test next and I have a food allergy test on Wednesday, its a smear test so lets see how accurate it is. Apparently, low platelets are a huge red flag when it comes to adrenals ( comes from a good adrenal forum )

took 0.25mg of cabergoline to lower prolactin last night, and today I have been experiencing increasing erections, in firmness and frequency, will let you know how it goes and to see if lowered prolactin will increase my t on my next bloodwork

I'm also going to take something to lower my shbg, will let you all know how the combination of both has any effect in terms of energy etc

Hey, you're back!

Great posts here that I would guess would apply to quite a few guys on the board.

I'd like to hear more about that the thyroid/adrenal connection to the above.  With Sam gone, we need a new expert here!

No sides from the Cabergoline?

I still haven't done my adrenal test yet, my sleep cycle has been topsy turvy and I want it to be perfect before I do the 4x test, I do have the kit though and will probably do that tomorrow

I have noticed since I started taking iodoral, that my daily temps have gone up, which possibly is a good sign? We will see when I test my thyroid on my next set of labs, I don't expect it to do much though

As for cabergoline, no sides actually, I actually slept better last night which was weird.. perhaps this is a huge placebo and this stuff is bunk, as its generic. That shall be revealed on my next set of labs too! Although, a lot of people take 0.5 every 3 days and are more susceptible to sides

Doesn't Prolactin level have to be pretty high to be prescribed Cabergoline? Like well into teens or higher?

I keep reading that Vitamin B6 is good at lowering Prolactin. Wasn't sure if you've heard that as well?

Nice!  I knew about mucuna prureins but thx for the reminder Mr. Magoo - but B6 is something I should have known but didn't.  Look - it can even overblock prolactin in pregnant moms:

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/569255
"Dangers of vitamin B6 in nursing mothers."

"Available research states that pyridoxine blocks lactation and inhibits the secretion of breast milk in nursing mothers by suppressing the normally elevated prolactin hormone levels encountered during puerperium. "

yep, thought i'd nip it in the bud and use the caber for a few doses

I think the biggest change is when I lower my shbg, t level of 550 and shbg or 48, right at top of scale.. it puts my free test in hypogonadal range for sure

Um, there is a few things to reduce shbg, nettle root I found only lowers it marginally.. I dunno if peak will allow me to name what I've been taking to lower shbg but I will say it and he can remove

Proviron ( 25mgs/day ) 5 days I have been taking it, I will post my bloodwork when I get it and lets see if it does reduce shbg

There is also winstrol, however.. no UK doctor will prescribe this, no way. I bought some legit pharma ones online cheap

my erections were decent though, it was the porn use that was killing them. I can't really see an improvement in erections on proviron, however, I'm using it to lower shbg and raise free testosterone, it may work for you

My skin has started to look better, it may just be in my head, but my skin looks more healthy on my face and less saggy, now I've only been taking proviron ( to boost free test/lower shbg ) and caber ( to lower prolactin ) for around 1/2 weeks now, surely any change in testosterone or prolactin cant have such sudden effects?

oh, and yday I had the best workout ever. I started with deadlifts, I did 3 sets, I would be worn out by then, but no.. I put on another plate, and did another set, then moved onto shrugs, then clean and press.. and then some press ups, and i was walking around my garden at 1am ( got weights in garden, and sleep cycle is a bit off, so thought I'd tire myself out ) between sets like bane from dark knight rises. I felt aggressive

I'm sore today, but a good sore, I could even do more weights.. I will wait until tomorrow though, I don't wanna over do it :)

mrmagoo2010 we need some Bane memes now. Actually my workout shirt is Bane's back and it says "I got your back!" hahaha

Congratulations on getting your hormones straightened out.

Great news.  So do you think it is more the cabergoline or the proviron?

If you have time, can you post some links on Proviron and how it boosts free T and lower SHBG?  That seems a bit odd to me, so I'd like to see what's behind that.  And so from what you wrote, you feel the proviron really helped with libido and "passion"?

Also, can I ask if you're having any sides with the cabergoline?  I assume not since all seems to be well?

I think it might be more the proviron although im sure, I will get bloods soon to back it up

I don't have any studies on proviron boosts free T, but there are tons and tons of message boards of users saying it has a high affinity for shbg or lowers it directly. Apparently, all the DHT derivatives do ( winstrol, proviron etc ) I just picked the one with the least sides. I don't notice any change in libido with proviron but maybe thats only at higher doses. There is conflicting reports at it being hpta suppresive at higher doses, so I dont want to risk it

No sides with the caber, In fact I thought it was bunk stuff as I literally have no sides whatsoever

MrMagoo Thanks for the update ...you didnt mention whether you were in the UK, i need some tips on where to get HCG in the UK.If clomid doesnt do the trick,  that would be my next treatment

I can't, a lot of sources contain steroids, and I'm thinking about Peak's site here, I don't want this to turn into some steroid dealing forum

Are you guys taking these drugs without doctor supervision? Cabergoline is a very powerful drug (as well as Arimidex). Incidentally, fish oil supplements have been studied as a natural method of lowering SHBG. There is a Japanese study, but I don't have the link handy.
