Rebound XT

I've used rebound xt since Satursday afternoon, a total of 5 capsules (one saturday afternoon before gym and 4 sunday evenly spread out). It has killed my libido and I want to stop, do I need to tapper down the dose to avoid any complications? (I'm taking it with Mass FX, Hyperdrol X2, alri venom hyperdrive)

    A few points:

    Not meaning to flame but going from 1 cap to 4 caps wasnt the best of ideas, always best to taper up over a period of weeks.

    From my experience of Rebound XT i found 1-2 caps ED was ok for libido, but anything more killed it within a few days - perhaps consider running it at 1-2 caps to see what happens? 4 caps will totally eliminate estrogen, which isnt beneficial at all IMO.

    Also, if you;re taking it with a host of other supps how can u be sure its the Rebound XT? It could a combination of supps - Mass FX has been known to kill libido also. How long and what doseage have you ran the other supps.

    In answer to your question (finally!), no need to taper just come of it straight.

    Without wanting to step on Kasabian toes I need to say right away not to just come off it, and yes you should taper down. I myself caught Gyno from Rebound XT, and although admittedly I was taking a higher dose than you the principle is still the same.

    As Kasabian quite rightly said however a jump from 1 cap to 4 caps is a bit extreme, and unless you're running it for a PCT then I see no need for a dose that high. I would drop it down to 2 caps everyday, 1 morning 1 nighttime, and see if your libido normalizes within a week. If not, run 1 cap for 5 days then quit usage.

    Thanks for both of your comments, still a bit unsure what to do. I feel really stupid for taking rebound whenever I took massfx and hydrodrol when only one cap a day was warranted. What I failed to mention in the original post is I experienced a faster than normal heart beat which kind of scared me as it made it hard to sleep. I think I'm okay now, just wondering if I should continue my eating and gym plan minus supplements for a few days or take a lower dose rebound with everything else as normal; rebound scares a bit me though.

    Just doing a search for tappering off rebound xt and I found this, does it apply when not using rebound xt for pct :-

SERM, for example, only masks estrogen expression by occupying receptors but estrogen production is left unchecked and actually increases as testosterone levels increase. AI's like letro inhibit inducible enzymes and just like a leaky faucet, they body will eventually try to balance the equation with increased aromatase activity. Steroidal AI's like Teslac, Exemestane, and ReboundXT will not result in 'rebound' phenomena because the inhibition is non-competitive and irreversible. They act as false substrates, so aromatase is still happy to act on them (instead of androstenedione) and the body keeps no record of an imbalance. There is no leaky faucet. In fact, after prolonged use, steroidal AI's often produce a protracted anti-e benefit even after being discontinued. This is why I suggest an inverse taper with SERM and RXT for post cycle therapy with an abrupt stoppage of RXT at the end. As the SERM elevates androgen/estrogen production, the AI dose is increased to compensate while the SERM is phased out. It works quite well to use this approach and rebound is not encountered. Adding LX and/or DHEA also really makes for a killer PCT in this scheme. This is a typical example of my PCT:

    IMO, with the greatest of respect for Firestorms and adil's own views, you've only taken 5 caps over a period of 36 hours so just stop taking it no need to taper down - its not like you've been on it a few weeks, only then IMO would you need to taper down.

    Dr.D created Rebound XT for designer supps so....

    It wont make much difference really, but you seem like you want it out of your system asap so just do that and stop taking it altogether. If it was a standalone supp then maybe you mite need to taper, BUT like ive said 5 caps in 36 hours does not warrant tapering.

    I know its not strictly the same, but if some was on a SD cycle fo example and wanted to stop, theyd just stop and do PCT, they wudnt taper down.

    With regards to Gyno, if you were taking it standalone and stopped abruptly it may cause gyno from the estrogen build up, HOWEVER, you are taking Hyperdrol i see which contains an AI (6-bromo) therefore gyno shouldnt be a problem as estrogen levels will be controlled by this, and by the time you finish your cycle any estrogen rebound from Xt will have long been gone and controlled by the Hyperdrol.

    Unless you want to continue at a lower dose - 1 cap per day to see what effects it has?

    LOL, rather a longwinded reply to such a simple question! But you have my opinion and that of two highly respected members so its down to you.

    I was only on it for 7 days, at I think 7-10 caps. Went on holiday, forgot the bottle, and a lump formed under each nipple which lasted over a year until I did an Epistane cycle. There's probably less than a 1% chance he'll get it, but better safe than sorry I say, especially when messing around with your body.

    Well thanks for all your advice. I tappered off at 1 a day since my stupid mistake to be on the safe side as I have the stuff so may as well use it. Libido has returned somewhat or atleast its not as bad as it was. Really scared me this experience but I learned from it and I'm certainly not going to take something without doing major research.
