Testosterone suspension is a water based non-esterified testosterone product which will sustain testosterone release for a few days due to the micro crystal design. The water based preparation will result in rapid gains in muscle size and strength due to it being very fast acting and extremely potent. The anabolic effects of the testosterone will be noticed much sooner than the likes of testosterone enanthate and cypionate, which are esterified and oiled based. Testosterone is not highly water soluble, so the testosterone may be noticed to be out of suspension if the product is left still. To temporally put back into suspension simply shake the vial so that a consent dosage can be drawn.
Due to its preparation and fast acting nature, daily injections of 50-100mg is the norm. This should bring about very noticeable results in a short space of time. Also taken into consideration when using this water based non-esterified product is the amount of pure testosterone we are actually administrating during a course of testosterone suspension. If we look at an esterified based testosterone product such as testosterone enanthate, the total milligram weight also takes into account the ester weight. 100mg of testosterone enanthate is the equivalent of 72mg of pure testosterone. 100mg of testosterone in suspension, however, is 100mg of testosterone because there is no ester attached. When calculating total weekly dosages we have to remember how much pure testosterone we are administrating, which we know depends on the preparation of the product.
Due to its fast acting nature, oestrogen related side effects can quickly become pronounced. Testosterone
readily converts to oestrogen which can bring about undesired side effects to the user.
Gynecomastia can become an issue. This is the formation of breast tissue, also sometimes referred to as 'gyne' or 'gyno'. Because of the greater than usual amounts of pure testosterone administrated combined with the fast acting nature of testosterone suspension, oestrogen related side effects can be common and many choose to use an anti-oestrogen from the outset and continue treatment throughout the course to help keep oestrogen levels at bay. An anti-aromatase such as arimidex, femara, or aromasin may be a wiser choice to the prone user however, or maybe even totally avoid the product.
Water bloat as expected will also be a noted side effect with testosterone suspension. Users should take care to monitor their blood pressure, and also keep an eye out for kidney malfunctions as in the higher doses testosterone can be harsh on the kidneys. If you have any concerns, such as pain urinating or dark urine pay a visit to your GP as soon as possible and explain the situation.
Usual androgen related side effects are common with testosterone suspension, such as oily skin, acne, aggressiveness, and male pattern baldness. Oily skin and acne can be of concern for prone individuals, and many may opt to choose a milder alternative in this regard. Many choose to include accutane in with their cycles however, as the drug will damage the sebaceous glands so that they become less active and produce less oily sebum. The inclusion of proscar to reduce the rate of DHT conversion from testosterone may help with those who are prone to MPB, but many choose to look else where as testosterone is a powerful potent product, but with that comes its tendency to bring about unwanted side effects in some individuals.
