Hello!
Could someone tell me please if anyone uses or knows how what is the treatment course from the allergic rhinitis using Fluticasone Propionate. Says 2 sprays in each nostril daily, but for how long?

Thank you!

  There is no treatment course with Fluticasone Nasal Spray.It only provides symptomatic relief,it does not cure allergic rhinitis.Some people get the problem during a particular season only while others need it round the year.Dose varies as per the need.Some require 2 sprays in each nostril once a day,while others require 1 spray in each nostril twice a day.Take the dose as per your doctor's advise.When taken for the first time the results may appear after 12 hours.It may take a few days before you start getting full results.iFyou notice any side effects,report to your doctor immediately.It's a topically absorbed corticosteroid and has minimal absorption in the system.Hope this information helps.

If you had an option between testoviron depot and testosterone propionate and testosterone cypionate ?
which one would you choose and why?
sweet i respectfully disagree.injecting every month or two wont build any muscle.For depot every week,cypio and propionate i would say every 3-4 days.

  Our RN student and pharmacy tech has a lot to learn about steroid esters me thinks.

One can generally say that test is test, but there appear to be differences in take up by the human body and of course there is the issue of detection times if you are competing.

Test Prop is the shortest ester having a half life of just 1.5 days (ish). This makes it great for coming up to competition time as the detection times are vastly reduced. It's also handy to stack with other short ester steroids such as Masteron or Trenbolone Acetate because they all hit your body fast.

The down side is that they should be administered every day (some say every other day but it's down to what works for you), Best blood levels with propionate are to be had with ED injections.

Many people report appetite reduction on such short ester steroids and as such they are often used in cutting cycles.

Personally, I don't mind pinning myself every day and can use short esters for bulking sessions too as I suffer no appetite loss (especially if I add some injectable B12 along side).

Testoviron (Test enanthate) has a much longer half life and as such takes a longer time to build up to useful levels in the body. As such it is suited better for longer (10+ week cycles) as you won't hit peak blood levels for at least three weeks after your first injection.

This can of course be combated to a degree by 'pre-loading' i.e. taking a much higher dose on your first shot. Testoviron can be shot every 4-5 days so if you aren't happy about pinning then this may be a good choice. Detection time because of the half life is much longer though.

Test Cyp only has a half day shorter half life then Enanthate, but as you state, should be shot E3D for optimum blood levels. Again a pre-load can be useful as it takes 2-3 weeks to kick in.

Many people using long ester cycles will use d-bol for the first few weeks while the test kicks in.

I've had great results using Test Enanthate E4D @500mg shots (yes a gram every second shot) for 14 week cycles, and adding in shorter ester compounds such as Tren A (100mg ED) for 4 weeks during the cycle for massive strength gains.

For extra size I would recommend Nandrolone Decanoate (deca) at 400mg/week - more does not seem to have any additional effect, but given the long half life on this compound it should be run for at least 6 to 8 weeks minimum and stopped 2 weeks before you stop your Test shots in preparation for PCT.

[edit] And the oil has naff all to do with it. It's just a carrier. The test powders are manufactured to have specific half lives. They are then dissolved in Benzyl Alcohol and/or benzyl benzoate to liquify them. The carrier oil can be anything - Grapeseed oil, sesame oil, olive oil, hemp seed oil - it doesn't matter. The final product is then filtered (to at least .24um) to clean and sterilise it before injection. As long as it is smooth enough to run through the pin easily then all is good.

  Fluticasone nasal spray should be only used after doctor’s prescription. If you experience nosebleed, vision problems, flu, chills or fever after its usage you must discontinue it and ask your doctor for advice. read more here http://www.fluticasonepropionatecream.com/

  Testosterone propionate, after Testosterone cypionate and enanthate, is the third injectable testosterone ester that needs to be described in detail. This makes sense because, unlike cypionate and enanthate, both of which are widely used and well-spread in Europe, proprionate is little noticed by most athletes. The reader will now certainly pose the question of why the characteristics of an apparently rarely used substance are described in detail. At a first glance this might seem a little unusual but when looking at this substance more closely, there are several reasons that become clear. Testosterone propionate is used on so few occasions in weightlifting, powerlifting, and bodybuild-ing not because it is ineffective. On the contrary, most do not know about propionate and its application potential. One acts according to the mottos "what you don't know won't hurt you" and "If oth-ers don't use, it can't be any good." We do not want to go this far and call propionate the most effective testosterone ester-, however, in certain applications it is superior to enanthate, cypionate, and also undecanoate because it has characteristics which the common test-osterones do not have.

The main difference between propionate, cypionate, and enanthate is the respective duration of effect. In contrast to the long-acting enanthate and cypionate depot steroids, propionate has a distinctly lower duration of effect. The reader learns how long this time is from the package insert of the German Jenapharm GmbH for their compound "Testosteron Jenapharm" (see list with trade 'names): "Testosterone proprionate has a duration of effect of I to 2 days." An eye-catching difference, however, is that the athlete "draws" distinctly less water with propionate and visibly lower water retention occurs. Since propionate is quickly effective, often after only one or two days, the athlete experiences an increase of his training energy, a better pump, an increased appe-tite, and a slight strength gain. As an initial dose most athletes pre-fer a 50-100 mg injection. This offers two options: First, because of the rapid initial effect of the propionate-ester one can initiate a sev-eral-week-long steroid treatment with Testosterone enanthate. Those who cannot wait until the depot steroids become effective inject 250 mg of Testosterone enanthate and 50 mg of Testosterone propionate at the beginning of the treatment. After two days, when the effect of the propionates decreases, another 50 mg ampule is injected. Two days after that, the elevated testosterone level caused by the propi-onate begins to decrease. By that time, the effect of the enanthates in the body would be present; no further propionate injections would be necessary. Thus the athlete rapidly reaches and maintains a high testosterone level for a long time due to the depot testo. This, for example, is important for athletes who with Anadrol 50 over the six-week treatment have gained several pounds and would now like to switch to testosterone. Since Anadrol 50 begins its "breakdown" shortly after use of the compound is discontinued, a fast and el-evated testosterone level is desirable.

The second option is to take propionate during the entire period of intake. This, however, requires a periodic injection every second day. Best results can be obtained with 50-100 mg per day or every sec-ond day. The athlete, as already mentioned, will experience visibly lower water retention than with the depot testosterones so that propionate is well-liked by bodybuilders who easily draw water with enanthate. A good stack for gaining muscle mass would be, for example, 100 mg Testosterone propionate every 2 days, 5p mg Winstrol Depot every 2 days, and 30 mg Dianabol/day. Propionate is mainly used in the preparation for a competition and used by female athletes. And in this phase, dieting is often combined with, testosterone to maintain muscle mass and muscle density at their maximum. Propionate has always proven effective in this regard since it fulfills these requirements while lowering possible water re-tention. This water retention can be tempered by using Nolvadex and Proviron. A combination of 100 mg Testosterone propionate every 2 days, either 50 mg Winstrol Depot/day or 76 mg Parabolan every 2 days, and 25 mg Oxandrolone/day help achieve this goal and are suitable for building up "quality muscles."

Women especially like propionate since, when applied properly, an-drogenic-caused side effects can be avoided more easily The trick is to increase the time intervals between the various injections so that the testosterone level can fall again and so there is an accumulation of androgens in the female organism. Women therefore take propi-onate only every 5-7 days and obtain remarkable results with it. The, androgenic effect included in the propionate allows better re-generation without virilization symptoms for hard-training women. The dosage is usually 25-50 mg/injection. Higher dosages and more frequent intervals of intake would certainly show even better re-sults but are not recommended for women. The duration of intake should not exceed 8-10 weeks and can be supplemented by taking mild and mostly anabolic steroids such as, for example, Primobolan, Durabolin, and Anadur in order to promote the synthesis of pro-tein. Men who do not fear the intake of testosterone or the possible side effects should go ahead and give propionate a try. The side effects of propionate are usually less frequent and are less pronounced. The reason is that the weekly dose of propionate is usually much lower than with depot testosterones. A daily injection of 50 mg amounts to a weekly dose of 350 mg while several depot injections easily launch the milligram content of testosterone into the four-figure range. When compared with enanthate and cypionate, pro-pionate is also a "milder" substance and thus better tolerated in the body. Those who are convinced that they need daily testosterone injections should consider taking propionate. The key to suc-cess with propionate lies in the regular intake of relatively small quantities (50-100 mg every 1-2 days.)

Although the side effects of propionate are similar to the ones of enanthate and cypionate these, as already mentioned, occur less fre-quently. However, if there is a predisposition and very high dosages are taken, the known androgenic-linked side effects such as acne vulgaris, accelerated hair loss, and increased growth of body hair and deep voice can occur. An increased libido is common both in men and women with the use of propionate. Despite the high conversion rate of propionate into estrogen gynecomastia is less common than with other testosterones. The same is true for possible water reten-tion since the retention of electrolytes and water is less pronounced. The administration of testosterone-stimulating compounds such as HCG and Clomid can, however, also be advised with propionate use since it has a strong influence on the hypothalamohypophysial tes-ticular axis, suppressing the endogenous hormone production. The toxic influence on the liver is minimal so that a liver damage is unlikely (see also Testosterone enanthate). What athletes dislike most about propionate are the frequent injections that are necessary.

  you had psoriasis, just as I thought when I first saw your question. why do you need an alternative? clobetasol is a powerful steroid but you must discontinue after 2 weeks of continual application. clobetasol is a generic name, don't get yourself confused.

other suggestions:
*triamcinolone
*betnovate(betamethasone)

for scalp:
*nuetrogena/polytar tar shampoo
*polytar tar soap

good luck.

what is the difference between locoid lipocream and clobetasol propionate cream?
it seems like both of them are used for inflammation, but what is the difference between the two?

  In a word, "potency". The locoid is a nonfluorinated cortisone product, and is rated as a low potency cream. The clobetasol is a fluorinated cortisone product, and rated as a strong cream. Having said that, you certainly wouldn't ever want to apply the strong one to the face, as it can damage the skin there, causing atrophy and bruising, and if used around the eyes, cause glaucoma. On the other hand, if the problem is on a thicker body part, then the Locoid probably would be too weak to cause any benefit.
