Despite its obvious benefits and limited side effects authorities have not endorsed the commercial sale of Deca Durabolin as an over the counter drug. This is to stop the usage of this drug in sports and other body building competitions. There is also the fear of abuse and although this drug has been termed a ‘side effects’ friendly drug across many spheres, the authorities have enough evidence which suggests that overdosing on Deca Durabolin or administering a cheaper rehashed version can prove to be extremely disastrous on the user’s health and well being.
Post Cycle Therapy (PCT), though beyond the scope of this profile, needs to be commented on. Due to the highly suppressive nature of Deca-Durabolin, I will speculate that testosterone in a Deca-Durabolin-inclusive cycle needs to be run for at least 2 additional weeks upon cessation of Deca. We remember from the chart above that baseline testosterone levels took roughly a month to return. Hence, a nice long estered testosterone should be run about 2 weeks longer than Deca-Durabolin, to prevent having a lag in time when the Deca-Durabolin is not producing an anabolic effect, yet is still suppressing your natural testosterone levels. Id also suggest that a particularly aggressive PCT be run after your cycle; nolvadex , HCG , and perhaps clomid should all be utilized in an effort to restore your natural hormone levels as quickly and efficiently as possible.
