Halotestin belongs to the category of steroid drugs and is used by strength athletes (wrestling, martial arts, weightlifting, powerlifting). Bodybuilders use it less often, since this supplement helps to improve strength characteristics without significantly increasing body weight, which is so necessary in bodybuilding.

History of Halotestin

Halotestin was first marketed in the late 1950s for the treatment of hypogodanism (testicular failure), male maturation in men, and breast cancer in women. However, due to serious side effects, especially in the female half, he was banned from working.

The therapeutic effect for men turned out to be more effective, although the course of treatment could last from 6 months to 5 years, but at the same time the secondary androgenic factor, such as weight gain, increased metabolism, the effect on the liver was minimal.

At the same time, the following positive effects were observed:

  • increase in lean body mass;
  • increased strength in most patients;
  • no significant water retention in the body.

This means that steroids target muscles without releasing estrogen, the female hormone. Therefore, very soon Halotestin began to be used first in bodybuilding, and then in other power sports.

Side Effects of Halotestin

The drug is considered hepatotoxic, meaning the half-life can be 6-9 hours, which puts a strain on the liver. Metabolites, products released during the action of Halotestin, can be detected for up to 60 hours. In addition, this steroid suppresses the work of the pituitary gland, which can lead to frequent headaches and fatigue.

Halotestin is a powerful androgenic agent, that is, its intake leads to an increase in male hormones in the body, which often leads to alopecia, thrombophlebitis, and disorders of the nervous system.
