I didn't see anything definitive listed regarding these two topics. Im young middle age and would like to start Rapamycin at a low dose of perhaps 2mg once a week. 


Has anyone lost muscle mass or strength while taking this medication? What about a generalized lack if gains from weightlifting?


My other concern is that I am prone to frequent sinus infections and need the ENT doctor to put me on antibiotics around 3-4 times per year. 


Would Rapamycin be a serious health risk in this situation?

I'm in my late 50's (20 months on Rapa)  and I have seen nothing but gains in muscle and speed. Nothing too dramatic but better. I think what my be happening with weight training is I feel healthier so I lift more. Is it placebo? I don't know but I'll take it. I am more muscular now then I've been in 20 years (still tall and thin though). 

Based on the Mannick study I would think low dose Rapa improves immune response. I've had one minor cold during my cycle. If you are only in your 30's I would either wait or start with 1 mg/week. The older and sicker you are the more dramatic the results from what I've seen and heard.

Thank you very much. Unfortunately, Im no longer in my 30s. I first discovered this forum only 2-3 years ago. I didn't see or feel the signs of againg until around 39.

November is my one year mark concerning reshaping my body and I didn't want anything which could act like a super myostatin.

Congratulations on making gains. There is a guy who is in charge of memberships at my gym in his early 60s. Always telling me I cant get to where I was size or strength wise in my 20s because Im not so young anymore. I blow it off. As long as youre warming up, stretching, and using proper form, I don't see an issue.

My philosophy on life is to fight for what you want every day as long as you are on this earth.
