Post-course therapy, as abbreviated as it is called athletes – PKT, is a combination of pharmacological drugs that must be taken to normalize the functioning of the body after passing a steroid course by various kinds of athletes. Also, one of the tasks of PCT is to reduce the likelihood of side effects from taking steroids. So, the main functions of PCT:
Preparations for post-course therapy can be divided into 2 types: those taken during the course (aromatase inhibitors) and those that must be taken after the end of the steroid course (estrogen blockers or simply anti-estrogens).
Aromatase inhibitors are used by athletes directly on the course, they are included at certain dates of the course. These are such drugs as: Proviron, Anastrozole. Their main task is to combat the aromatization of drugs in the body, i.e. reduction in the conversion of the chemical composition of the drug to estrogens. When these drugs are used on a steroid course, the risk of side effects is significantly reduced. There is a prevention of gynecomastia and minimizes the amount of fluid that is retained in the body. Steroid preparations that are flavored in the body: all testosterone esters, Sustanon, Nandrolone esters, Methandrostenolone, Oxymetholone, Masteron. If on the course you will have the above mentioned preparations, from the 15th day of the course you need to include aromatase inhibitors.
The next type is estrogen receptor blockers (antiestrogens). These drugs post-course therapy are included in the final stages of the course. Of these drugs can be identified such as: Tamoxifen and Clomifene Citrate (Clomid). The main goal of these drugs is the normalization of the secretion of their own testosterone, in order to avoid the development of testicular atrophy. If you are going to use drugs such as Sustanon, Deca (Nandrolone), Methane (Methandrostenolone), Testosterone esters, Trenbolone, Oxandrolone, Anapolon on a steroid course, you should immediately provide a drug for the passage of PCT. All of the above drugs inhibit the production of their own testosterone.
