3000 mg taurine
Excellent find, man!
Here is a thread that asked for this dude and he answers from a different account. He claims he is still cured and still taking taurine. I’ll be buying this stuff tomorrow.
I’m ordering some now, from amazon. I’ve previously taken in, but with other things, and in different doses. Let’s compare results when you start.
Day 1 (3000 mg of taurine): took around 5 PM and didn’t feel anything. I woke up around 4 AM with a massive thirst (I strangely never feel thirsty anymore) and chugged a glass. Woke up another hour later still thirsty as hell so I chugged another glass.
When I woke up, I felt warm and maybe even hot. PFS has made me intolerant to cold in the last couple of months even though labs from 6 months ago say my thyroid is okay. It felt good to not feel cold in the morning!
Just so everyone knows, I don’t expect this to cure me. But maybe it’ll help alleviate some symptoms.
It’s so fucking weird how I never feel thirsty anymore. Thirst is a basic feeling almost every animal feels in order to keep themselves from dying… I’ll update this comment with my taurine experience to keep things easy for y’all.
Day 2 on 3000 mg of Taurine: I felt pretty good today mentally! I also felt like I had more energy throughout the day. It could be placebo, but my mind felt clear and I was a little more at peace than I usually am. The mood was contagious and I felt like socializing a little bit. I exercised and it may have given me more energy.
I didn’t get any of those thirst cravings I got last night. And my libido/erections didn’t change. I didn’t get any morning wood besides the mildly soft inflations I sometimes get.
If this continues (energy and higher spirits) I would probably take it indefinitely. It’s cheap and doesn’t have strong sides other than mild stomach ache.
Day 3: 3000mg Taurine and Ashwagandha Felt real good today! I got some head last night and it was outstanding (obviously). I feel like libido is ever so slightly higher, but most of the benefits I’m getting are emotional, energetic, and brain fog is lower. I got a slight soft erection today thinking about girls. I don’t know what Ashwagandha’s role in this was, but I think I’m going to keep taking it for stress and it raises libido as well. Sleep may have been a little bit better, too. I really hope these benefits stay like this, I always read these posts and you see a bad update around a week or two… I’m expecting the worst but hoping for the best.
Day 4 3000 mg Taurine Another day where I felt good. My appetite seemed stronger, and on top of that, I noticed my mouth was watering throughout the day. Hmmm it seems like perhaps my mouth has been chronically dry for a while. I got a couple of erections without even having to look at porn, too! This is definitely working for me, although I am still missing libido and towards the end of the day, I got tired. I’m in the middle of finals too, so the stress of that is playing a part in my condition. Overall, very happy with how I feel on this, and I’m going to add more amino acids. I haven’t felt this good in a long time.
Right now, I’m starting to think this could all be neurotransmitter related. It seems like many people here have improved by doing things to boost dopamine/serotonin. The trick part about boosting those is that you can’t do it in a way that will cause you to build up a tolerance and have less dopamine than you began with.
Surprisingly I feel the opposite with regards to temperature. It switches around every few weeks, but I go from not being able to tolerate the cold at all, to needing the air conditioning at a consistent 10°C to get to and stay asleep.
I am constantly cold now, used to be hot as hell all the time. It sucks
Even after a workout you are not thirsty? Your mouth doesn’t get dry
The guy on reddit was taking several other things that people have had luck with on occasion, so I’m not sure why he’s saying it’s for sure taurine that fixed hi
Maybe he added taurine and that’s when he got better? Or added the other stuff later after taurine had already worked? I don’t know.
After working out, I get thirsty, but absolutely not to the degree that I used to get thirsty. On top of that, I don’t sweat as much as I used to so I think I don’t lose a ton of water.
Yes, he was also on L-arginine and tribulis. He claims he took Taurine first and then the other two. He also says that his symptoms were greatly improved before the addition of L-arginine and tribulis. Look at my earlier comment to see how I’m responding to taurine. It’s gently helping me, and I like it.
Awesome. Keep us updated, I’m open to trying it as well if it helps you
Any luck with Taurine?
This is my log that I’m updating in a comment thread above. I don’t know if I should make a topic about this, or keep updating in here.
Make a topic.
Write your posts as you see fit but put an abridged summary for each day in the first post.
Thanks man! Definitely not out of the water yet, but I’m at the point where I feel motivated and hopeful certain things are going to work. I can try out many different amino acids, prep, and even acetylcholine drugs. There’s lots of things to try at the moment, that has been working out for members here and on other forums.
Might as well experiment and at least try to make my symptoms a little bit better.
i think ill try taurine. it seems like the least dangerous so far… does it do anything with androgen receptor?
Not that I know of. But it modulates GABA-A channels that allopreg works on. And it might have an impact on dopamine as well in the brain.
