Milligram for milligram the French manufactured testosterone heptylate was often said to be stronger than any other testosterone ester. Again, testosterone is testosterone and activity is a factor of the actual parent drug content of an ester as well as dispersion rate (active -life). Like all testosterones, this drug is a high androgen/high anabolic substance that provided a serious build-up in size and strength. Water retention was lower than with cypionate. This may be due to a slightly lower level of aromatization. (Some esters also effect the rate of conversion to estrogens slightly) Severe suppression of the HPTA was common and HCG/Clomid administration was considered mandatory after 4- 6 weeks of use and at the end of the cycle. DHT conversion is high so androgen sensitive athletes opted to either not use testosterone or utilize a conversion inhibitor such as Finasteride. Anti-estrogens such as Novladex or Teslac were reported as necessary for sensitive individuals and higher dosage use. Most athletes seemed to experience fewer side effects with Testosterones Heptylate than with Cypionate.

Gains were of a higher quality nature. Due to lower water retention, the musculature’s had a somewhat less smooth appearance than what is common with some other testosterones. Excellent muscle pumps and an improved appetite were also common after only a few days of use. Like most Testosterones, a quicker recovery / regeneration quality existed.
Men commonly used a weekly dosage of 250-1000mg. However, excellent results were realized by novice testosterone users at a dosage of 250-mg every 5-7 days. Women do not seem to suffer virilization symptoms at dosages of 25-50mg weekly, but women and testosterone use is/are always a crap shoot! Even though Testosterone Heptylate remains active for about 20 days, it was necessary to use injections every 10 days to avoid a roller coaster effect in plasma androgen levels.

Testosterone heptylate is another injectable testosterone ester. The French pharmaceutical Company Laboratoire Theramex is the only firm worldwide which manufactures this compound and has been selling it under the drug name Testosterone Heptylate Theramex since 1955. Testosterone Heptylate Theramex rates high among French, Belgian, and Dutch athletes since it is readily available, extremely economical, and very effective - The compound Testosterone heptylate, like every injectable testosterone, has a strong androgenic effect which goes hand in hand with a distinct anabolic component. Testosterone heptylate is excellent for the rapid buildup of strength and muscle mass. When looking at the gain rates of bodybuilders who use Testosterone Heptylate Theramex this steroid, milligram for milligram, seems to have a stronger effect than enanthate, cypionate, and propionate.
Testosterone Heptylate Theramex leads to a strong protein synthesis in the muscle cell and promotes recovery to a high degree. Athletes report an enormous pump effect during the workout and a noticeable appetite increase after only days of intake. The gains usually consist of solid muscle since the water retention that occurs during intake is usually lower than with enantathe and cypionate. Competing bodybuilders and athletes normally become puffy be-cause of the testosterone injections should give Testosterone Heptylate Theramex a try.
Testosterone Heptylate Theramex has a du-ration of effect of 20 days. Although this theoretically allows long injection intervals athletes usually inject it at least once a week. Men usually prefer the 250 mg strength while women use the more conservative 50 mg or 100 mg version. With 250-750 mg/week most male bodybuilders get on well and make great progress. An effective combination in the buildup phase, for example, would be 500 mg Testosterone Heptylate Theramex/week, 200 mg Deca-Durabolin/week, and 30 mg Dianabol/day. Female bodybuilders, by taking 50 mg Testosterone Heptylate Theramex/week, 50 mg Deca-Durabolin, and 15 mg Oxandrolone/day can obtain good strength and muscle gains without fear of virilization symptoms.
The potential side effects of Testosterone heptylate are comparable to those of enantathe and cypionate. Since, when taking Testosterone Heptylate Termex, a certain percentage of the substance converts into estrogens in the body, athletes will also have to take antiestrogens. The administration of testosteronestimulating sub-stances such as HCG, Clornifen citrate or Cyclofenil could be indicated since the endogenous testosterone production is considerably reduced by Testosterone heptylate. Young bodybuilders should keep in mind that Testosterone heptylate could lead to an early stunting of growth since it prematurely closes the epiphysial growth plates.
As for the availability on the black market it can be noted that Testosterone Heptylate Theramex is not as widespread as cypionate and enanthate.
