Joint Pain When Nandrolone Added To Regimen
Oct 15, 2005
Just two weeks ago I started Nandrolone injections to help me gain weight in conjunction with going to the gym. I haven't recently changed any other meds - am on Truvada/Sustiva. The problem is that I'm now getting joint pain in my legs, which, for example prevents me from even using a jogging machine. Could this be due to the Nandrolone injections - I've only had two (low dose) so far? Alternatively, does the Nandrolone interact with Truvada/Sustiva and cause this problem? Also, I've been getting bad fatigue, so have to sleep in the afternoons, although I have suffered fatigue on and off ever since starting meds. Thanks in anticipation.

The fatifue could be due to persistent Sustiva effect so a discussion with your HIV specialist about other options on a trial basis might be warranted. The bone/joint pain with nandrolone is seen occasionally. There is not a clear drug interaction with your HIV meds and nandrolone. If your testosterone levels are low or low normal I generally prefer testosterone along with exercise and increase protein intake as a safer approach to increase muscle mass. KH
