When I first read the email send from the Suggest Supplement form for this, I got excited. See, I thought it was going to be a pure epi product, and I'm a big fan of single compound prohormones.

Alas, by dream was crushed. Well, slightly compressed, because an Epi/Halodrol stack is actually pretty good. But then I read the dosages in each capsule and the crushage was complete.

Two caps a day =
30mg Epistane - a good dose for most users
50mg Halodrol - not quite enough

Most successful logs with standalone Halodrol repost 75mg as being the best dosage, with some advanced users going 100mg or even 125mg.

Now you could triple up here and go 45mg Epi and 75mg Halodrol, and for some people that might work. But I know I responded very well to 30mg of Epi a day, and even at that dosage my back pumps were killer. So 45? Not for me.

And does anyone really know how these compounds work when stacked? Do you need two doses that are comparable to the standalone dose?

Other than the human guinea pigs out there reporting back in their logs, we don't really understand how these compounds work in stacks. Maybe the whole is greater than the sum of the parts, maybe it's not.

2a,3a-epithio-17a-methyl-17b-hydroxy-5a-adrostan (Epistane)

Also written as: 2a,3a-epithio-17a-methyl-5a-androstan-17b-ol

Trade name: Epistane (Havoc)

A designer steroid and legal alternative to anabolic and androgenic steroids.

Epistane is a methylated version of the controlled substance Epitiostanol (2±,3±-Epithio-5±-androstan-17²-ol), created in the 1960's and used as a treatment for breast cancer. Chemists added a methyl group to the compound to create the product known as Epistane. Epistane is a sulfur containing steroid which is known to have strong and long lasting anti-estrogenic activity as well as weak androgenic and mytropic activities.

Since it is anti-estrogenic, you can expect very dry gains from this compound. Epistane has low androgenic to anabolic activity, meaning it is much more anabolic then androgenic. Even though users will see dry gains on Epistane it does not mean that it would be any insufficient for a bulking cycle.

Side effects are typically minimal to non existent, but can include:

The occurrence rate of side effects while using Epistane/Havoc would be from mild to moderate, however they’re completely user unique, some users may not experience any side effects, while other users will experience a combination of sides. It should be noted that the majority of these side effects are simply of inconvenience more so than a possible health affecting issue and for the most part can be resolved through simple supplementation, take sometime to read our article on combating side effects.

Decreased Libido/Sexual Function

Patterned Acne

Hair Thinning/Shedding (Especially those prone to hair loss)

Increased hair growth

Puffy / Sensitive Nipples

Sore/Aching Joints

Back Pumps (Dull pain in back after/during workouts)

Increased aggression, head aches, lethargy and various other sides can happen aren't common

It should be noted that due to estrogen regulation, sore/aching joints is typically common.

4-chloro-17a-methyl-androst-1,4-diene-3b,17b-diol (Halodrol)

Trade name: Halodrol, also known as H-Drol

Halodrol is a 17aa steroid that converts to the steroid oral Turinabol after interaction with 3b-HSD at an estimated rate of about 5%. Because of this low conversion, doses must be higher than other 17aa pro-steroids. However, it is suspected that Halodrol has decent potency without conversion as good results are seen despite the relatively low conversion to Turinabol. Halodrol appears to be about as potent as testosterone, and significantly less androgenic.

Because of the 4-chloro group, halodrol has no progestational effects, it cannot interact with the aromatase enzyme, and it produces inactive 4-chloro-DHT metabolites. This makes androgenic side-effects such as hair loss, high blood pressure, acne and prostate enlargement less likely.

The lack of androgenic potency might be expected to create problems with gyno, however the low SHBG binding affinity has minimal interference with SHBG levels and/or freely circuiting estrogen and testosterone. It does not appear that halodrol has a significant gyno risk.

Because halodrol must be used at such a high dose to see noticeable effects, liver toxicity may become an issue. Therefore it is recommended to use a liver protecting supplement before and during halodrol cycles.

Gains from Halodrol generally take a few weeks to notice, but users can expect solid increases in strength, lean muscle mass, improved vascularity and minimal water retention. This allows some of the gains to be kept after the cycle if good diet and training are continued. Quick dramatic gains in size and strength are not generally noticed with Halodrol.

H-Drol is one of the most popular and proven compounds on the market and is considered good for beginners due to it's reputation for minimal side effects and dry gains that are relatively easy to maintain after the cycle is complete.
