Halotestin is one of the most liver-toxic steroids and it should be avoided unless one has specific aims that can’t be achieved with other drug. It is usually used by weightlifters who want to achieve strength without crossing their weight category. Some bodybuilders use fluoxymesterone in cutting cycles, although it can always be replaced by a safer steroid. This medicament should never be used by beginners or those not fully familiar with it. The main advantage of Halotestin is its zero estrogenic effect and significant androgenic effect (if this is what you want to achieve). Water and fat retention are thus not an issue with fluoxymesterone. Anabolic effects are not dramatic comparing to most steroids. In bodybuilding Halotestin is almost exclusively taken during preparation for a competition. Since its substance is strongly androgenic while at the same time aromatizing very poorly, this substance helps the athlete obtain an elevated androgen level while keeping the estrogen concentration low. With a low body fat content Halotestin gives the bodybuilder a distinctive muscle hardness and sharpness. Although the muscle diameter does not increase, it appears more massive since the muscle density is improved. The fact that daily dose of up to 20 mg does not cause water and salt retention makes it even more desirable. During a diet, it helps the athlete get through difficult, intense training while increasing the aggressiveness of many users. This is another reason why Halotestin (fluoxymesterone) is so popular among powerlifters, weightlifters, football players, and, in particular, boxers. The generally observed dose is normally 20-40 mg/day.
The dose of Halotestin is usually influenced by the condition. It is usually administered in divided doses of 5-20 mg/day. The general principle is to give the highest dose and then taper it down once the response has been obtained. The repeat doses over the day ensure that the blood levels remain high for the 24 hr period. Depending on the condition, most individuals receive this drug for 1 -6 months. Halotestin is only available as a tablet of 2, 5, or 10 mg.
Side effects of this drug often include:
- Liver damage
- Increased production of the sebaceous gland
- Gastrointestinal pain
The drug should not be administered without a prescription from the doctor. The doctor must be consulted before the use of this drug and should not be self-prescribed. Many power lifters also use this drug. The use in power lifting and athletics is more than that in bodybuilding. The drug is more to do with gains in strength than increase in muscle mass and size. A lean physique can be hardened up with the use of the drug. The dose of the drug can be increased in athletes who are looking forward to a great increase in aggression especially before a competition. The dose can be made greater with the consultation from a doctor. The dose may differ from person to person depending on certain factors.
