Sustanon 250 is an injectable oil based testosterone blend, developed by Organon. This product contains four different esters, engineered to bring about a quick release of testosterone from the propionate and phenylpropionate esters, combined with a slower release from the decanoate and isocaproate esters. The testosterone blend is made up of; 30mg of testosterone propionate, 60mg of testosterone phenylpropionate, 60mg of testosterone isocaproate and 100mg of testosterone decanoate.
As with any testosterone product, oestrogen related side effects can be expected. Water retention is common with sustanon, and the product is commonly implemented during a bulking cycle when mass building is the goal, and subcutaneous fluids is less of a concern compared to when getting into contest shape. If oestrogen related side effects such as gynecomstia become a concern anti-oestrogen may be implemented, such as nolvadex. An anti-aromatase such as arimidex, femara, or aromasin may be the wiser and more effective option, however.
Androgen related side effects can also be of a concern, as with any testosterone based product. The
inclusion of proscar can help minimise the conversion of testosterone to DHT which may help with those who
experience male pattern balding. Acne and oily skin can be combated by accutane treatment. Accutane is a
drug that makes the sebaceous glands less active, thus less oily sebum is produced. The drug is very
effective, but usually expensive.
For some, the desired results are not worth the side effects if they are particularly sensitive to any of the listed side effects, and opting for a milder compound may be a wiser choice.
Injections can be administered in a similar frequency of testosterone enanthate, with biweekly injections
in the hope to control blood levels. Injections every 10 days is also another common protocol. Doses of
250-750mg is a common, and will bring about decent gains in muscle mass and strength. Some go above this
dose, but obviously the related side effects will become more pronounced, and minimising gains. For some,
higher doses will bring about a situation where the added gains don't outweigh the more pronounced side
Due to the products ester blend the testosterone can remain active in the body for up to three weeks after the last injection. Starting a PCT protocol at this time would be the obvious conclusion to help aid recovery.
