RE: what to stack with epistane...? anything new
Well I don't know much about the company who makes it, and I probably would also criticise them if they didn't recommend a PCT. I would say that Sustenol isn't an entry-level steroid, and one which should only be used by the more experienced. It's basically, per 2 caps I believe, approximately 20grams Superdrol, 20 grams Pheraplex and 50 grams Halodrol. Now if we break these steroids down individually and look at the dosage, 20grams for both SD and PP is reasonable, and not excessive. Many people would up Superdrol to 30mg, maybe even 40mg. Before I took this I queried our resident "expert" in our IRC chan, and although his opinion is simply that, an opinion, he advised that Halodrol isn't that "harsh". I do want to point out however that this is merely opinion, one I agree with.
I haven't taken Halodrol on it's own, but I have done both SD and PP on their own and stacked together. The addition of the Halodrol made a big difference, I stayed "pumped" for longer, I had extra reps and strength increases, but the biggest thing I noticed was the lack of shin pumps. When I do SD or PP I usually start on 20mg and up to 30mg, and of course I get shin pumps. I think with the addition of the Halodrol in Sustenol, it allowed the doses of SD and PP to be lower, therefore not causing shin pumps. I gained approximately 21-23 lbs. I had been cutting for a short period before I did the cycle, and I was 12st 3lbs, after I had finished my PCT, and even still now about 2 months after my cycle, I am still 13st 3lbs, so basically 14lbs of weight kept. I have to say however, that I stupidly upped the dose from the recommended 2 caps a day to 3 caps, and I had to cut my cycle short due to problems with my mind, I seemed to be losing it a little. It's difficult to explain but I felt really ill and I was getting paranoid.
The person who answered the question in my thread about what to stack with Epistane made a valid point, Sustenol already has 3 methyls, is it safe to add another methyl Epistane into this? Another problem is that Epistane is still new and although everyone is raving about it, we still don't know whether there are any bad sides. I do like Sustenol, but I've not ran Epistane before and I think it would be unwise to stack them without running both, due to the sheer power of Sustenol. If you don't fancy running 11oxo then I would recommend Pheraplex. Someone did a post over on Anabolic Minds and I don't fully remember what was said but they apparently compliment each other quite well.
As for PCT, I would say Nolva is a must if you're new to cycles. I've ran quite a few, and although I have Nolva on hand I prefer to run Rebound Reloaded. The reason for this is I get very bad sides from Nolva, far worse then Steroids themselves!
