Hi @Meisterberger

I’m sorry to hear about your story. Are you still taking Saw Palmetto?

No i threw it out now im in search of where i can order some Proviron do you know any good sources

Sorry for my slow reply. How long have you been off SP? If possible, could you please use the template provided to create a member story template to update your story? I’ve edited it into your original post.

Unfortunately, I cannot recommend any sources of Proviron, and please note that hundreds, if not thousands, of patients have used similar substances in past attempts to recover to varying degrees of success. Personally, I must also advise against such substances as they can sometimes make patients considerably worse, myself included. Our best chance at collective recovery is through scientific research which we are working hard to deliver in the coming months.

You will improve over time, so if it’s only been a few weeks I’d encourage you to take it as easy as possible and give it a few months.
