    Does anyone know if the excipients in cyproheptadine tablets are particularly harmful? I messaged the company that produces them asking what their excipients were. They said they were happy to help and asked what country I was from and why I wanted to know. I replied and then they said they don't email out the ingredients in the pills to people... Not sure why they wanted to know the information.

    I don't think you can say one drug is better than the other in this regard - I guess it depends on the manufacturer what they decide to add in.

    I think this should be done too, it is easy to lose answers in this long thread with many pages. In the past anyone used to be able to edit the email exchanges wiki and add their own replies from Ray. Would it be possible for this to be done again, or a system where you submit a question and an admin verifies it and it gets added to the list?

    But you can run a specific search on a thread using Google:
    "pboy site:Ray Peat Email Advice Depository"

    And I agree, compiling everything in one page is much easier..

    I am wondering if Dopamine is a hormone or neurotransmitter only.
    RP mentioned that people wrongly thinks that serotonin is a hormone.
    I am guessing he probably does not think of dopamine as a hormone.

    Here is another quote from RP on sex and masturbation.
    Everything goes back to thyroid.

    High estrogen does sometimes cause insatiable sexual interest, partly because it increases adrenal androgens, and partly by inhibiting satisfying orgasms. Too much progesterone can suppress or neutralize the androgens. Thyroid is the best way to regulate the system, keeping libido up, making orgasms satisfying.

    [Does masturbation or sex have positive or negative effects on the hormones or stress?] Generally positive, but intense arousal can have unwanted consequences, such as herpes virus outbreaks.

    According to Wikipedia, "In the brain, dopamine functions as a neurotransmitter—a chemical released by neurons(nerve cells) to send signals to other nerve cells."
    Thyroid is good for almost every bodily function including sex but sometimes if the metabolism is very high, you can deplete important vitamins for sex like B6 for example. So yeah good sufficient diet that keeps metabolism high is the way to go I think.

    Question:
    Answer:
    As often... Cryptical answer. Does it mean it's so safe it can be used in very delicated health situations like those he mentioned, or did he mean it's only safe for critical health situations ?

    LOL! Btw... I'll take the phrase "coined by an advertiser" for "coined by an enthusiastic" :)

    @haidut it might interest you.

    Lol, this is funny indeed. Btw, the phrase "progesterone for men" was Patrick Arnold's at least as far as I know. I forgot to give him "credit" for that, but since it does indeed sound market-y I should not be using it. Maybe something like androstanedione would be more suitable for the term since it has 2 ketone groups compared to the 1 for androsterone. Probably the most accurate description would be "mirror image of DHT" as its structure is exactly the same as DHT with the ketone and hydroxyl groups in reversed positions.
    I don't know what to make of his answer except that maybe it is most suitable for those conditions??? If somebody send him questions about it please include the actual studies I posted (not the forum threads) since he may not have had much experience with that specific steroid and would like to see some literature before giving more specific opinion.

    I wonder if this is all at once, or in two or three 2oz servings per week, or whether it doesn't really matter at all.

    I guess it doesn't really matter, otherwise he would have said so.

    it seems like ray is not worry about estrogen content of tea , but im still confused , most of studies on pubmed shows higher estrogen level in black tea drinkers , and lower E level in green tea drinkers than non drinkers.

    any thoughts?!

    This reply has some very interesting points to it. Making cakes with powdered milk instead of flour caught my eye, something I would be interested in making in the future and hadn't thought of before.

    The temporary fillings with zinc he mentioned mildly antiseptic, of course! Anyone interested in getting a mouthful of temporary fillings to avoid having to eat carrot ever again? ;)

    I am about to update the wiki page with the email advice. Almost done. Would you like to change the disclaimer and the title of this wiki page?
