Omnadren is a testosterone blend designed for testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) and is very similar to Sustanon 250. In fact, this four part testosterone blend was originally identical to Sustanon 250 with the exception of one ester, but the modern version is identical on all four parts. For the TRT patient, there are possible side effects of Omnadren, but they are unlikely. In a proper treatment setting, you will merely be replacing the testosterone your body is lacking. While side effects of Omnadren are possible in TRT plans, with proper treatment most men will be able to supplement problem free. Then we have performance enhancement, and such doses will increase side effect probability. The side effects of Omnadren associated with performance use are identical to TRT use, but in such cases, you will be supplementing with supraphysiological doses. This will take your testosterone levels above and beyond what the body could ever produce naturally. While this will increase side effect probability, it is very possible to supplement with performance doses problem free. If this sounds strange keep in mind Omnadren is simply testosterone, and while synthetic it is identical to the testosterone hormone you naturally produce. Testosterone is not a foreign substance to the body; in fact, it is essential to our health and wellbeing. However, there are still possible side effects of Omnadren you may have to contend with. We will explain what they are, what you can do about them and hopefully lead you to a positive and enjoyable experience.
The estrogenic side effects of Omnadren are the most common side effects associated with TRT and performance use. Natural testosterone suppression will be the exception, which we will discuss later on. The estrogenic side effects of Omnadren are due to the testosterone hormone converting to estrogen due to its interaction with the aromatase enzyme. As estrogen levels rise, this can lead to gynecomastia and excess water retention. Excess water retention, if severe, can also promote high blood pressure. In order to combat the estrogenic side effects of Omnadren, most men will need an anti-estrogen. In a performance setting with supraphysiological doses the need for an anti-estrogen is assured. In a TRT setting, it can be a bit hit or miss; some men will need one while others won’t. You have two choices in anti-estrogens, Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulators (SERM’s) like Nolvadex (Tamoxifen Citrate) and Fareston (Toremifene Citrate) or Aromatase Inhibitors (AI’s) like Arimidex (Anastrozole) and Femara (Letrozole). AI’s are without question the most effective means of combating the estrogenic side effects of Omnadren. AI’s will inhibit the aromatase process, and as a result, lower serum estrogen levels in the body. SERM’s will not inhibit or lower estrogen levels, but they will bind to the estrogen receptors preventing the hormone from binding. SERM’s can be enough for some men, but many, especially with performance doses will need an AI. How much your AI dose needs to be can vary greatly. In a TRT setting, if needed, 0.5mg twice a week may be all that’s needed. In a performance setting, 0.5-1mg every other day to even daily is sometimes needed.
The androgenic side effects of Omnadren are highly dependent on genetics. The androgenic side effects of Omnadren include acne, hair loss and body hair growth. Such effects are due to the testosterone hormone being metabolized by the 5-alpha reductase enzyme, which reduces the testosterone hormone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). In a TRT setting with TRT doses, the androgenic side effects of Omnadren are extremely rare. In a performance setting, while there is a greater risk, genetics will determine the total outcome. If you are predisposed to male pattern baldness you may lose some hair. If you are not predisposed hair loss will be impossible. If you are genetically sensitive to acne, you may breakout, especially on the chest, back and shoulders. If you are not sensitive you shouldn’t have an issue. Regardless of sensitivity, staying clean and dry at all times will help. Shower immediately after becoming sweaty and if this isn’t possible change into a clean, dry shirt and shower as soon as you can. For those who are sensitive to the androgenic side effects of Omnadren, you may find 5-alpha reductase inhibitors like Finasteride to offer some protection. Such inhibitors will not completely reduce the androgenicity of the testosterone hormone, but they will have a significant effect. However, such inhibitors should only be used if absolutely necessary as they can cause androgen imbalances that can come with problems of their own.
The side effects of Omnadren can include high blood pressure and cholesterol. If water retention is controlled, which can be controlled by diet and anti-estrogens, blood pressure should not be an issue baring any underlying conditions. Then we have cholesterol and while exogenous testosterone can affect cholesterol most men will be fine. Studies have shown testosterone can suppress HDL cholesterol, but with TRT doses the total suppression is not statistically significant. Conversely, the same data has shown that when TRT doses are applied with an AI HDL cholesterol may be suppressed by approximately 25%. Then we have performance doses and data has shown use without an AI may suppress HDL cholesterol slightly with the outcome being 20+% with an AI. While the use of an AI can increase the risk associated with cholesterol and testosterone supplementation, maintaining healthy cholesterol is very possible by simply putting in a little effort. Baring no underlying condition, men who live a cholesterol friendly lifestyle will not have a problem. A cholesterol friendly lifestyle revolves around both diet and activity. Daily cardiovascular activity is recommended. It is also important that your diet is low in simple sugars and saturated fats and rich in omega fatty acids. Daily fish oil supplementation is recommended. While many men may not need it, the use of a cholesterol antioxidant supplement can also be useful.
The side effects of Omnadren will include natural testosterone suppression in all men who use the compound. Genetics and doses will not change this factor. For the TRT patient this is of no concern. Such an individual is no longer producing enough testosterone to begin with. For the performance based individual, while using Omnadren this is also of no concern. The Omnadren will provide the individual with all the testosterone he needs. Once the use of Omnadren comes to an end, as well as any other anabolic steroids the individual may be using, natural testosterone production will begin again on its own. However, this does not apply to the TRT patient. The TRT patient will not discontinue exogenous testosterone therapy; if he does he will return to a low level state. This tells us natural recovery is dependent on no prior low level condition existing. It also assumes no damage was done to the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Testicular-Axis (HPTA) due to improper anabolic steroid use. Most men who supplement responsibly will, however, want to implement a Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) plan. This will facilitate a smoother and stronger recovery and ensure recovery is reached at a faster rate.
