Sustanon 250 is a drug that contains several forms of testosterone. Initially, the drug was released only by Organon, and it was used only for therapeutic purposes. Doctors prescribed a steroid to people whose body did not produce the necessary amount of male sex hormone. Today, the drug is widely used in sports pharmacology. In this article, we will take a closer look at this remedy, side effects, and rules for admission.
Sustanon 250: composition
The steroid includes four forms of testosterone ester:
The rate of assimilation of each species is different, this determines the high effectiveness of the steroid. It keeps high levels of testosterone in the blood throughout the month. Propionate initially enters the bloodstream, as it is the fastest ester, followed by phenylpropionate, isocaproate comes into effect after it, and decanoate is absorbed at the end.
The duration of exposure helps to reduce the number of injections. It should be noted that this does not affect the productivity of the mixture. “Sustanon 250” is in no way inferior to the means that are used separately. The only disadvantage of the drug is its price. The cost of the mixture is usually higher than that of other AAS.

How to take Sustanon 250
Use the drug only in the absence of contraindications and after reaching the age of eighteen. The duration of the solo course takes 6-8 weeks. Longer use is possible only with the additional use of gonadotropin. Maintaining a constant high concentration of the hormone in the blood suggests daily injections of the drug. The recommended dosage ranges from 250-500 ml and depends on the preparedness of the athlete and his goals.
The use of aromatase inhibitors begins on the eighth day of taking the steroid and ends after one or two weeks after the end of the course. In addition, after 21 days after the use of Sustanon 250, post-cycle therapy is carried out to restore the synthesis of testosterone in the body, which consists of taking Clomid or Tamoxifen. The hormone returns to its usual level within a month after the end of PCT. Do not forget that diet and special sports nutrition can significantly increase the effect of steroid use.
Combination with other drugs
“Sustanon 250” combines well with most steroids, causing a synergistic effect. Usually athletes use a combination with Nandrolone for an improved set of muscle fibers or with Winstrol for drying and relief. A competent combination of drugs allows you to achieve a much greater result than when using each tool in the course of solo. This approach is not only productive, but also reduces the risk of side effects.

“Sustanon 250” does not differ from other types of testosterone and also exhibits estrogenic activity. Against the background of the use of the drug, the following negative consequences may occur:
- fat deposition;
- inhibition of their own hormonal background;
In order to avoid these symptoms, it is necessary to use in parallel drugs that inhibit the production of estrogen. It can be “Anastrozole”, “Tamoxifen” and the like.
Testicular atrophy is considered the most serious side effect in men from Sustanon. As a rule, it occurs against the background of an overdose of the drug. To prevent the development of pathology allows a course strictly limited to two months, as well as the parallel use of gonadotropin.
In addition, androgenic side effects can occur, such as acne, baldness, and prostate problems. In some athletes, while taking oversized dosages of Sustanon, the temperature rises.
It should also be noted that the drug is not recommended for use by the female sex, since its use can lead to the manifestation of signs of virilization. For women, short-acting testosterone is more effective.

- As mentioned above, the female should not take this remedy.
Most negative reviews about the drug relate to manifestations in the field of injection of infiltrates (seals). This is a temporary symptom that disappears a couple of weeks after completing the course. Seals are not experienced by experienced athletes, as they already know how to give injections correctly. In addition, some athletes are unhappy with the effect of fat burning, as adipose tissue also often grows with the muscles.
It is noted that taking the recommended dosage of Sustanon 250 positively affects strength and endurance. Many athletes believe that the drug saves money and time due to the combination of several forms of testosterone and the absence of the need for frequent administration of the drug, and the cost of the drug is not much different from buying steroids separately.
