What is Tren Cough and why do we get it?
If you scour the internet you will find plenty of discussion around the subject of Tren Cough, it really is one of those discussions to which most Trenbolone users have experienced it, but nobody really has the definitive answer on exactly what causes it. When the user injects a trenbolone product, with any ester attached, although Acetate seems to the most common culprit for the cough possibility, occasionally a reaction can occur within the body, which can be quite scary. The chest will tighten, often a sweat can occur, the lungs become tight and then a persistent very uncomfortable cough precedes.
Usually the coughing will fade within a few minutes but it is not uncommon either for the coughing to continue for up to 30 minutes. The uncomfortable lung and chest tightness can last even longer, sometimes even lasting for 24 hours or more. Tren cough really is an unpleasant feeling and puts many users off returning to using it, even though as a drug in the bodybuilding world, there really isn’t much that comes even close to the outstanding ability of Trenbolone.
So what causes Tren Cough?
“Tren cough” wikipedia
Trenbolone acetate’s androgenic effect activates a variety of lipid-like active compounds which are called prostaglandins.
Many of these prostaglandins are inflammatory and vasoconstrictive.
Prostaglandins are signalled through two varying pathways cyclooxygenase (COX) (Also known as: prostaglandin-endoperoxide synthase)
and lipoxygenases (LOX) (also known as: EC 220.127.116.11, EC 18.104.22.168, etc.)
Vasoconstriction of the muscular wall of the bronchus in the lungs is what triggers this cough reaction
Trenbolone increases an inflammatory mediator peptide called bradykinin which facilitates the dilation of blood vessels
The bradykinin peptide is well known to promote a cough reaction associated with ACE inhibitor medications prescribed for hypertension. tren cough
The problem i have with the above is the fact that no matter what ester of trenbolone i choose to use, i can still get the cough. I think the ester isn’t the main contributing factor here. Although having said that, i am happy to concede that it does seem rarer to get tren cough when using tren hex or enanthate.
In a nutshell and simplifying somewhat, the trenbolone is entering our bloodstream via a capillary or a vessel and then making it’s way down into our lungs giving us the cough.
How to minimize chances of getting Tren Cough

2 Half way through the injection, aspirate a second time.
