Test-R 200 is a mixture of various testosterone esters, first developed and released as a Sustanon replacement for insufficient secretion of endogenous testosterone. Currently, virtually all testosterone ester blends are equated with Sustanon but are shorter esters than what is used in Sustanon, making the dosing of the hormone testosterone much easier to control.
Test-R 200 consists of three short testosterone esters – Propionate, Phenylpropionate and Acetate. Testosterone is the main androgenic hormone synthesized and released by the testes. It is responsible for the growth and development of male genital organs and secondary sexual characteristics, the development of laryngeal muscles and the distribution of body fat. The testosterone esters in this preparation have different rates of absorption and elimination times, which provide a quick and prolonged effect over a three-day period.
Effects of Test-R 200
Test-R 200 works just like any other form of testosterone. This means that the main effects are:
- Increase in muscle mass – an average of 6kg per month
- Anti-catabolic action
- Increased appetite
- Enhanced hematopoiesis – an increase in the number of red blood cells in the blood provides better oxygen transport, thereby increasing endurance
- Increased libido (while taking Test-R 200)
- The detection time of the drug is up to 3 months
When using any Testosterone compound, the active half-life and duration of the cycle will play a role in determining which dosages should be used. Typically, for beginner users, this should be taken at no more than 250-500mg per week. For more advances users, this can be taken at 500-750 per week.
Being that the three active esters in this compound are short, this should be injected every three days in order to sustain good levels of this hormone within the blood. Some users will inject every other day in order to further heighten their levels within the blood, but this is preferable, not compulsory.
Test-R 200 can be combined with drugs such as:
Dianabol or Nandrolone – for gaining muscle mass.
Winstrol or Trenbolone – for drying and relief.
The combination allows you to reduce the frequency of side effects and improve the effectiveness of the cycle.
Like any version of Testosterone, taking this hormone can cause side effects. Some of them include:
- Acne and hair loss
- Sodium and water swelling
- Symptoms of hypercalcemia
- Headaches, aggressiveness, anxiety or sleep disturbances.
These side effects are mostly seen from abuse of this compound. When used correctly and if all recommendations are followed, no side effects should occur. The only main concern with Testosterone is its aromatization rate, but being full of short esters, with Test-R 200 this should not become an issue. Nevertheless, it is worth keeping some Tamoxifen on hand for if the estrogen levels climb too high. If Nandrolone or Trenbolone are used in combination, Tamoxifen should be replaced with Cabergoline in order to counter the high levels of Progesterone which may occur.
