Omnadren 250 is an oil-based injectable containing a blend of four different
testosterone esters: Testosterone propionate, phenylpropionate, isocaproate and
caproate. Being a four-component testosterone, Omnadren is most commonly
compared to Sustanon. While it does contain Testosterone propionate,
testosterone phenylpropionate and isocaproate in the same strength as Sustanon,
the last ester is different. Please note however, that the older versions of
Omnadren list isohexanoate and hexanoate as the final two ingredients.
Hexanoate is simply another work for caproate, so the last ester (decanoate) is
the only Sustanon constituent missing from Omnadren.
One of the only noticeable differences between Sustanon and Omnadren seems to be
the speed in which estrogen buildup occurs. In comparison, the process appears
to be slightly more pronounced with Omnadren. This is of course just a matter
of timing, as the slowest releasing ester in Omnadren (caproate) is a little
faster acting than enanthate. Blood testosterone levels will therefore peak
much faster with this compound, not having the same gradual release time
imposed by testosterone decanoate. Users likewise report water retention much
earlier into a cycle. While water retention may lead to a more rapid buildup of
size and strength, it can become pronounced enough to cause a very smooth and
watery look to develop (hiding muscle definition). In addition, the excess
estrogen is likely to cause the development of gynecomastia. This effect is
especially pronounced with Omnadren, usually presenting itself quickly after a
cycle has been started. Estrogen can also be responsible for increases in body
fat storage during treatment, resulting in a further loss of definition.
Individuals who are sensitive to the effects of estrogen, yet still seek the
power of a testosterone, would therefore need to addition an antiestrogen such
as Nolvadex® and/or Proviron®.
Arimidex®, a powerful antiaromatase, is another
option available to us. Although very costly, this drug works much more
efficiently than any other antiestrogen in use by athletes. It would have great
use with such a strong item as Omnadren, as the standard remedies would not be
quite as effective.
Being a testosterone, one can also expect the typical set of androgenic side
effects. Oily skin, acne, body/facial hair growth and increase aggression are
all very common with this product. It can also bring out or aggravate a
condition of male pattern baldness. Men with a familial predisposition for hair
loss should probably avoid this item. We do however, have the option to
addition Proscar® (finasteride). This is a drug that can effectively prevent
testosterone from converting into DHT (dihydrotestosterone) in certain androgen
target tissues. Since DHT is the primary culprit with testosterone's androgenic
side effects, adding Proscar® to the cycle should allow it to be much more
comfortable. Omnadren is also likely to suppress endogenous testosterone
production rather quickly. It is therefore almost a necessity to add a
testosterone stimulating drug like HCG and/or
Clomid®/Nolvadex® when concluding therapy.
This way we can prevent a retracted period of unbalanced hormone levels,
hopefully avoiding a "crash" after the steroids have been removed.
Being a powerful, long acting testosterone blend, the effect of Omnadren is of
course quite comparable to that of Sustanon (except
that its release time is closer to cypionate or enanthate). It is similarly a
powerful androgen, capable of providing great gains in mass and strength. Due
of the high level of water retention associated with testosterone, Omnadren is
really only applicable for bulking purposes. While it is very effective alone,
it is also combined often with a number of other steroids depending on the
desired result. Many athletes prefer to combine Omnadren with a strong anabolic
like Deca-Durabolin® or Equipoise® for example, in an attempt to lower the
overall testosterone dosage and run a more quality mass building cycle. On the
other hand, power-lifters and those looking for dramatic gains in mass and
strength (regardless of quality) may stack Omnadren with heavy orals such as
Anadrol 50® or Dianabol. Here of course the
strength and weight gain should be even more extreme, although
androgenic/estrogenic side effects are expected to be as well.
Although Omnadren stays active in the body for about two weeks, it is generally
injected on a weekly basis. A dosage of 250-750mg (1-3 ampules) per week is
more than sufficient to achieve great results. Some take advantage of the very
low price of Omnadren (Europe) and take excessively large amounts. Beyond 750mg
or 1000mg weekly added side effects will no doubt be greatly outweighing
growth, so there is usually little need for such excess. With this drug we
really don't want to mistake water bloat for muscle growth. And while a number
of adventurous women do experiment with testosterone products, Omnadren is
probably not a good choice. The long action of this compound, mixed with the
highly androgenic nature of testosterone, makes a poor combination.
Virilization symptoms can develop quite easily with a strong androgen, making a
long acting product like Omnadren notably dangerous should problems become
evident. Testosterone propionate is a much better choice should an androgen
like this be absolutely necessary, as it will give the user much greater
control over her blood testosterone level.
Due to the extremely low price for this drug in Poland, Omnadren is made readily
available on the black market. Among bodybuilders, Omnadren is generally
considered to be inferior to Sustanon however.
Price may have something to do with this belief, as this drug is generally much
cheaper than Sustanon on the black market. It is likewise usually pushed when
availability of (or money for) Sustanon is short.
At this point counterteits are not a major concern, so it is considered a
trustworthy item. Don't be alarmed if your Omnadren seems to have a different
look than we display or you remember from previous experience. The packaging of
this product seems to change quite often. For starters, the company name
changed officially in 1991 from "Polfa" to "Jelfa", although for years after
the older version boxes could still be found in circulation. The color of the
boxes also varies, and has included pink & white, green & white, gray, and gray
& blue. What is constant is that each box contains five ampules, protected in a
white paper or plastic holder. The old ampules are clear glass, and are
imprinted with red or black ink that will rub off easily. The newer version is
identified by a paper ampule label, which currently bears black print.
