After an anabolic steroid cure, many ask themselves the question, how, or with which the respective steroid should be discontinued. Depending on the intensity of the cure, some do not set out at all, or resort to dietary supplements such as testosterone boosters and zinc combinations. As a rule, however, the cure is also often with medication discontinued. Clomiphene is a popular remedy for this. All you need to know about this is here:
Clomiphene is a synthetic estrogen. In medicine, women are prescribed to have children, since it supports ovulation due to the estrogen-reducing or blocking effect.
Thus clomiphene can block the binding of receptors and estrogen, thereby preventing estrogen release. In addition, the corporeal testosterone formation is accelerated by the messengers emitted thereby. This effect is especially interesting for athletes and sportsmen who want to return the testosterone self-production to an initial level after an anabolic steroid cure.
The start of the intake should be adjusted for an optimal effect exactly on the previously used steroids. This depends on the half-life of the respective substance.
There is a rule of thumb: for oral and injectable anabolic steroids with a half-life of one day, the clomiphene intake is started immediately on the following day, provided it is not combined with anabolic steroids with other half-lives. In anabolic steroids, mostly injectable, which have a depot character such as testosterone enanthate, it is started the following day after the end of the half-life, as in the case testosterone enanthate after 10-12 days.
If you want to use clomiphene as mentioned above as an estrogen receptor blocker and simultaneously as a testosterone booster, as is usually the case after a steroid cure, a daily dose of 50-100 mg is recommended. Another effective scheme is a frontload of 200-300 mg distributed to 2-3 doses a day, which is usually continued from the second day with 50-100 mg. It is important to note that clomiphene is not an aromatase inhibitor, but that artificial estrogen prevents the release of free estrogen to the receptors, which can lead to gynecomastia after or during a cure, if one does not discontinue for example. The testosterone-enhancing effect was limited to the upper physiological limit.
The side effects of clomiphene are usually manifested by skin allergic reactions, hot flashes, nervousness, insomnia, depression, fatigue, and visual disturbances. Nausea and vomiting have also been reported. However, all of these side effects are usually reversible.
