i purchased Nipertropin in mid november for got 4 boxes = 40 vials
BATCH NO. 11823 Gemstone Pharmaceuticals
EXP DATE 12.12.14
was told the vials were 10 IU each
im 42yo, doctor, 6', 238# when i started injections on 11/20/11 pm for wt loss purposes. i wanted to start small so i started w 1 IU per day for the first 2wks (5 on - 2 off). was very careful w reconstitution, storage, handling, etc etc.
after my first injxn that evening within 30min or so i felt extremely hypoglycemic. i had to eat ravenously, was shakey, and etc. i didnt attribute it to the injxn until the next morning. then i googled nipertropin and found several forum posts on other boards about people getting hypoglycemic after injecting nipertropin. i spoke with my buddy who sold them to me and he immediately called some of his friends that were also taking it. he said they were doing well on it. i figured maybe it happened cuz i had just worked out and not eaten and etc. however, he did say he never felt hypoglycemic when he was on HGH, even on high doses.
i pressed on. i continued my 1 IU per day dose for those 2wks and then moved up to 1.67 IU per day. got this by mixing in 3mL bacteriostatic water and injecting 0.5 mL per day in the am. i continued this dose for the next 6-7 weeks. other than the occasional hypoglycemia (i usually made sure i ate when injecting) i felt nothing and had lost no weight despite eating well and regular lifting and cardio. so 2wks ago i doubled that dose to 0.5 mL twice per day which is a total of 3.33 IU per day. still no changes in wt, energy level, edema, hand symptoms, etc.
today i came across the thread started by ex-physiologist in the sampson's forums area. learned a lot and his experience sounded strikingly similar to my own and to others i have read. i did get a baseline IGF-1 before i started. tomorrow i have have a lab appt at 1115 am and will draw my IGF-1 and a GH level. im done taking that shit, im pretty convinced it's fake, but im going to take a 5 IU dose tomorrow morning 2hrs before my lab draw to see if i have a spike in my GH level.
ive done 10-1/2 weeks now. the last 8-1/2 wks have been 7 on - 0 off. i read about the "shake test". i took the vial i reconstituted just this morning and vigorously shook it up just now. no bubbles.
anyway, ive gotten a lot of good info from this board about the nipertropin so i wanted to share my own experience. i should have my labs back in a few days so i'll let people know happens. i hope someone finds this info helpful.
