Fluoxymesterone (Halotestin) – is a steroid oral form of the application, showing the most powerful androgenic and relatively low anabolic activity. It was developed in the late 50s. The use of this drug is extremely common among athletes who are interested in the growth of athletic performance while maintaining a stable weight. For example, halotestin will appeal to fighters of a different plan (including due to the ability to cause aggression because of its high androgenicity), as well as to representatives of strength sports (bodybuilding, powerlifting, etc.). Despite the fact that the drug is quite good in action, however, its side effects can make its own benefits counterproductive. The range of dosages used is very limited due to its pronounced toxic effect on the liver. Therefore, his admission to the course must be thought out and supervised by specialists. It is very important not to use Halotestin to beginner athletes, since it is likely that a person will not be able to cope with the course due to lack of experience in this field.
Course of the drug
To begin with, it should be noted that the duration of the course for more than five to six weeks is not recommended, since relative manifestations of side effects and toxic effects on the liver also increase. The best solution is to use the drug only shortly before the competition (for four weeks), in order to ensure an adequate level of power indicators and aggression. In addition, dosages exceeding the standard 20 milligrams should be avoided, as in the case of fluoxymesterone, the border at which the beneficial effect ends and the appreciable harm begins is extremely blurred. Some athletes take 10 mg of the drug before workouts to enhance the effectiveness of training and give everything 100%. After that, the athletes take the rest of the dosage throughout the day. Since Halo has a short half-life (as already mentioned, about 6-9 hours), this strategy is the place to be. As mentioned earlier, many people use Fluoxymesterone at the finishing workouts before their performances, as a slight increase in lean muscle mass is noticed without losing any visible body texture. The combination of the drug with other anabolic steroids does not give almost no increase in effects, but only causes a parallel increase in the negative effects on the body. Moreover, these combinations are not justified, since fluoxymesterone is almost completely useless for building muscle. And also, in order to increase the relief, you can easily replace this drug with less toxic compounds like Masteron or Vintsrol.
Due to the extremely high rates of conversion to dehydrotestosterone, the development of androgenic alopecia, prostate hypertrophy, and also, according to scientists, increases the risk of developing malignant tumors. This is one of the reasons that makes the drug practically inapplicable for long-term use. The toxicity of fluoxymesterone to the liver is so high that many athletes reported that they began to “feel” the liver within a rather short period of time after the start of the course. The drug causes a marked inhibition of the sexual arch, which by the way was demonstrated in the course of scientific work carried out by American scientists in 1977. During the study, several volunteers received 10, 20, and 30 milligrams of the drug for twelve weeks. Prior to this, control measurements of testosterone, dehydroepianrosterone and globulin that bind sex hormones were taken. Already within 24 hours, a significant decrease in endogenous testosterone in the blood was detected, and the parameters of follicle-stimulating hormone also changed. In addition, there was an increase in estradiol, which, however, was not regarded by researchers as the effect of fluoxymesterone. As a result, scientists have suggested that the inhibitory effect of the drug is direct. Oppression does not occur through the reduction of gonadotropic hormones, but through the targeting of Leydig cells.
