Halotestin (fluoxymesterone) is an extremely powerful anabolic steroid that has been prescribed to treat muscle wasting, male androgen deficiency, dry tissue repair, malnutrition, and to heal bone fractures. Unlike many anabolic steroids, Halotestin regularly prescribed to men and women, and although its modern use is somewhat limited, it is still used to treat breast cancer in some women. Despite its high anabolic rating, this steroid will not promote weight gain; in fact, it does little for weight gain at all. It is a steroid that is commonly known as a raw strength steroid. It is not uncommon for some bodybuilders to add Halotest in the last few weeks before a competition. This can have a good effect on training, and also help with the effects of a brutal diet.
Halotestin has powerful effects, some of the strongest being related to red blood cells. Halo can significantly increase haematocrit and haemoglobin levels, as well as red blood cell mass. This effect is largely responsible for the strength effects as well as the increased energy levels that the steroid can provide.
The main effects of Halotestin are related to strength and aggression. The issue of aggression and anabolic steroids is often overblown, but in the case of Halo it can actually increase aggression.
Nausea, vomiting, headache, skin discoloration, increased/decreased sexual interest, oily skin, hair loss and acne are possible. If any of these effects persist or worsen, tell your doctor or pharmacist immediately.
In rare cases, men may have painful or prolonged erections lasting 4 hours or more.
This medicine can reduce sperm production, which can lead to reduced fertility in men.
If you are a woman, tell your doctor immediately if any of these unlikely but serious side-effects occur: deepening of the voice, hoarseness, unusual facial/body hair growth, enlarged clitoris, irregular menstruation.
This medicine may cause an increase in the amount of water in the body (oedema). This may increase the risk of heart failure.
Dosage and cycles of Halotestin
We have to be honest - while most anabolic steroids can be used for gaining mass and for shrinking, Halotestin's strength lies solely in shrinking.
It's not because it's bad or anything. It is simply because you can get better results from Halotestin by focusing on its fat-burning abilities.
As for the actual dosage, 10-20mg a day is quite common. However, if you have used this drug before and have had positive results from Halotestin, you can increase the dosage to 30-40 mg per day.
Remember that you should divide this dose into two doses (one in the morning and one in the afternoon) because the half-life of Halotestin (fluoxymesterone) is 6-9 hours. It is also best taken 30 minutes to 1 hour before a workout.
An example of a Halotestin cycle: Some bodybuilders take 20 mg of Halotestin (per day) for 2-3 weeks, and in the last week switch to a higher dosage of 40 mg per day.
