Dear XXXXXX,
My earnest appeal to you is to refrain from using any body building products that are represented to contain steroids or steroid-like substances. These dugs are approved for use only in certain types of anemias, breast cancers and to gain weight after severe illness, injury or infection to rebuild tissue after injury.
Using steroids to improve athletic performance and put on size is unsafe and illegal. I have never prescribed any of these drugs to normal healthy individuals. Try natural methods rather than resorting to these sort of harmful medicines. i find no valid reason for you to use them.

uh well i am only planning to stay on this cycle for 3 months then stop it forever, i just want to get my shape and maintain as much as i can from what i gained, this is my last cycle, what do you think?
I read about bodybuilders who never stop taking steroids for years and i am only going on it for the next 3 months and that's it
any advice

Ok fine.I understand your point of view. Many of the body builders who have used steroids on long term have landed in significant health problems. While you are steroids you can take calcium, multivitamin tablets and vitamin D. These will further help your muscle development. Also take balanced diet XXXXXXX in protien. To maintain your gains after you have stopped them continue calcium vit d and high prot diet and donot stop your exercises. Rather than stopping the drugs abrubtly taper them off slowly lest you dont develop withdrawal symptoms.

Regars,

Arimidex is given to prevent the side effects of anabolic steroids on breast leading to gynaecomastia. So you have to take them only until you are on anabolic steroids to be precise until the anabolic steroids are inside your body.
With regards to hcg a small dose of 250 to 500 IU everyday or alternate days for 2 to 3 weeks only. not beyond that.

Arimidex needs to be taken while you are on steroids. Dose is 1mg/d orally daily. You need to take it until you are on steroids.

Any good multivitamin capsule, calcium tablet once daily, vitamin D supplementation
atleast 2000 IU/d are all helpful. However I won't be able to provide you with brand names because of regulatory restrictions.
