Maybe yes maybe no, the fact remains that may men took one pill and ended up with same exact symptoms of the most severe user. Read and analyze all the case reports and you will understand

my symptomps were stomach pain, testıcular pain, low lıbıdo, dark veins and wrinkles at penis, musle atrophıes twitches weakness, fat losss under the rıght eye, anxiety and tremors, heavy ınsomnıa, and average brain frog, dry skın and dry mouth untıl 8 days ago.
Then ı crashed. All symptoms were worse than even before. my parents went me a hospıtal. I dont remember these moments rıght now.

But ın thıs 8 days, mıraculously my brain fog has gone, my ınsomnıa gone, my tremors gone, my anxiety and depression gone. My skın and mouth are no longer dry. My skın ıs startıng to produce oıl, my stomach paınss and testıcular paıns gone. My lıbıdo ımproved.


At the same time some symptoms worsenıng. muscles atrophıes, twıtches and fat loss, dark veıns ın penıs are stıll here. My leg hairs startıng to fall, my vısıon blurred.

Are those bad sıgn or good sıgn guys?

That's a defense mechanism. It is far easier for them to think it is al paychological than believing their son is suffering from an unrecognized syndrome which at the moment is incurable.

We believe you. I know it's not enough.

Hang in there. You are in your first year, and many report progress after a year or two.

we believe you dude..hang in there, you used it 4 days...it will take some months but you'll get better...
for now just relax and maybe research a little and follow some natural protocol...i don't think it's a good idea to ask for testosterone replacements, or take nolvadex and shit...give your body time to recover, maybe just some vitamins and minerals...
best of luck and let us know if merck anwers back
