Ive never experienced hypertension due to AAS so I would be hesitant to take BP meds based on that ...BUT, I have experienced LVH (at times I could actually hear my heart beating) so I would consider BP meds to possible address that issue.

I dont use any BP meds... you can lower by with diet and a small aspirin if needed... then I realize some people have a bigger issues that need to be handled by a doctor or someone smarter than I...

Sully, I wasn't here in 2010 when you joined or I woulda "Welcomed" you then. Hope you post more ... any board like this needs more RNs, MDs, and spouses of same to supplement our bro-medical discussions ... Mike can't do it all, stick around?

(I am not on commission lol)
Thanks Raw but I have only ever been an occasional poster when I do lurk over the years. I usually try to not talk up too much because unfortunately I feel BroScience is looked to more and a response I get a lot is I dont trust the medical field.
I'm skeptical on many things about the medical industry as well but when I have recommended people to not workout after giving blood due to fluid shifts in your body which can cause you to pass out, I was told by a teacher in a forum like this that I dont know what I'm talking about.
Either way I'm back for a while.

Well, to me there is "medical knowledge" and "medical experiences". A doctor repeating something he read in a book or journal means a lot less to me than someone in the field who has first hand experience. I take MikeRN's observations more seriously than I would the average poster, for instance.

I'm not angry about it and it's just like the same situation when you see someone doing a set and their form isnt horrible but could use a pointer or 2 to get "better" but they dont want to listen... we all have room to grow and yes experience is a major factor to accepting advice from people ...
Also I believe most MDs/DOs are under qualified at treating TRT patients and have a sub par understanding of these hormones (never mind full blown juicers) ... doesnt mean we shouldnt listen and absorb some of the "good knowledge" ...
Also wasnt a direct shot at this forum at all!!! I'm spread out in many and have seen similar responses everywhere ... i just enjoy being a lurker and would love to chat with who ever has questions cause I got my own too lol ... Just not looking for public back and forth dick measuring contests ... the last 4 years of politics have taken that urge to argue with strangers on the internet out of me

Understood. Regrettably I have no compelling rebuttal. My intentions were pretty selfish anyway. I too see Mike_RN as a valuable resource here and will always try to coax more activity or more information from people like you or him who straddle both worlds ... "Bro" and "Pro," simply because it benefits me. Respect for how you decide to play the board games, however.

That's the issue I had that started me on beta-blockers. Metoprolol @50mg day xt release.

IMHO every BP protocol should include 5mg cialis daily. 40mg telmisartan and 5mg cialis daily lowered my BP from 155/90 to 130/80.
