Hey Rachel, I’m so glad to hear that you were able to get through suboxone withdrawal and get to the other side of opiate freedom. I did want to clarify a couple thing you mentioned for others reading however. Firstly, GABA, gabapentin and phenibut are 3 different things (although I have heard ppl call gabapentin gaba as well) but all 3 can help during withdrawal. GABA is an amino acid that can be purchased locally or online that could help during withdrawal. Gabapentin is a prescription medicine that most certainly help many during opiate withdrawal but is harder to get since it requires a prescription. Phenibut is similar to gabapentin and available to purchase online and can help during withdrawal (with sleep and just feeling a little better) as well but phinibut is highly addictive so it’s probably best to use only for 2 or 3 days then stop use. Also, it’s best if ppl know that Kratom is in fact addictive since it acts similar to opiates by binding to opiate receptors but is a much safer (imo) option that’s opiates and is currently legal in most states in the US. Kratom is a great plant that can be used to get off opiates or as a replacement therapy for long term depending on your goal. The downside is that the US government is seemingly at war with kratom and are currently in the process of making it illegal. Hopefully they will not succeed but time will tell. Rachel, I hope you continue doing well and please feel free to post back here with your progress.
If you do part 2 man, add in the plethora of Opiates..<< they are the ones sluts are dying from ODs on…Percs, Oxys, Vicodin, Darvocets… but most take a cocktail of an opiate(s), and upper.. like Aderol (amphetamine salts), then benzos and whatever the hell else I'm forgetting because I'm not a drug addict or a dealing doctor. Half the dame heroin epidemic – which has reached suburbia 5-6 years ago hard – is fueled by people getting their scripts cut off, then turning to heroin as a substitute.. once needles.. well you know the rest from there.
The use of anabolic steroids will suppress natural testosterone. The rate of suppression is dependent on the steroid in question, but in the case of Oxymetholone it is enough to warrant the use of exogenous testosterone. This will actually hold true with most anabolic steroids. Those who supplement with Anadrol and forgo exogenous testosterone therapy will fall into a low testosterone condition. Not only is this a condition that comes with numerous bothersome symptoms, it is an extremely unhealthy state. The form of testosterone you choose when using Anadrol is of no consequence, however, you should ensure you are applying enough to provide what the body needs.
Once the use of Anadrol and all anabolic steroids has come to an end and all the exogenous hormones have cleared your system natural testosterone production will begin again. This is assuming there was no prior existing low level state. It also assumes no damage was done to the HPTA during supplementation due to improper practices. While natural testosterone production will begin again on its own, it will not be fast. It is generally recommended that the individual begin a Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) treatment plan following anabolic steroid use . This will encourage natural testosterone production and speed the healing process up. It will not automatically return you to your previous natural high level on its own; that will take some time. However, it will ensure you have enough testosterone in your body to function properly while your levels continue to naturally rise.
