    Numb hands!!!

    I started rips on April 15 and plan on a year run of mostly rips and some hyges. I've been taking 5 iu a day and holy shit my hands are numb. It's to the point where it's waking me up at night lol. I'm going to lower my dose until numbness isn't so bad but at what dose do u guys get hands to numb to bare Lolol?

    Start low 2iu then slowly move up. Some are more sensitive to the sides.

    Agree with DFeaton. Tingling / numbness is a common side. Starting at 5 IUs of Rips is a bit aggressive IMO if you've not run them previously. Slow your roll, monitor sides and increase as your tolerance and budget will allow.

    2iu a day for at least 2 months to get warmed up before you even think about 4. 5iu is for the special lucky ones that dont get sides at all. Shit is strong brother! I know my Rips and 2iu is plenty for me and almost 80% of my friends.

    I think if this is your first time running HG especially Rips I would start the first week at 1 iu then adjust from there so you give your body time to adjust to the sides.

    Thanks for the input gonna lower my dose ASAP at least for a while. Just to add I did start at 2 iu a day for the first few days to make sure I was safe.

    I started at 2iu. At 3 now and I get numb hands. Especially when im driving. I can imagine 5iu would be harsh.

    Re: Numb hands!!!

    Second run with rips and both times started at 5iu out the gate. First run at about 2-3 weeks in they began to cripple me. Numb hands, swollen feet and so god damn tired. Supra posted a thread about adding T4 to both combat sides and theoretically double the potency of said GH. I tried the T4 at 25mcg per IU and it really revived me and seemed to be affective at combating the lethargy. Can't say if it works for everyone and or if it really bumps up the potency or not. The theory is that when you add T4 there is a window when the GH converts T4 to T3 and the additinal t4 supplemented thus increases the potency of the GH(igf). This is my very simple explanation/understanding. Please read Supras thread about adding T4. Packed with research study findings. The verdict is still out and many are very skeptical. I can only speak for myself when I say it worked for me and the lethargy.

    Re: Numb hands!!!

    I've been taking Rips for almost a year now.
    Tried starting out at 4 iu's after coming off of
    4 iu's of hyges. Damn near crippled me.
    Hands severely numb, even the pressure of
    The barbell in my palm was painfull. Fingers
    Would lock up as well. It took me nearly 2 months
    Of this, hoping it would subside before I backed
    It off to 2 iu's. I do 1iu in the am and 1iu in the pm.
    That's a comfortable dose for me. I've tried a couple
    Of times to increase it up to 3 and got the same bad
    Sided. Rips are strong. It's just not nessesary
    To go past a dose that you can tolerate.
    Everyone's sensitivity is different. Some guys get no
    Sides and can take high doses. I know one member
    Who doesn't go past 1iu.

    Rips for some reason will bloat you at a high dose.
    I was way more ripped on the hygetropins.

    Re: Numb hands!!!

    As a matter of fact I have a kit of hyges I've
    Been saving for the summer when I want to
    Be really shredded. I'm about to switch over
    In a couple of weeks. Then back to the rips
    After summer.
