Bodybuilders find that a daily intake of 50-100 mg of Clomid by Dragon Pharma (Clomiphene Citrate) over a two week period will bring endogenous testosterone production back to an acceptable level. Clomid will gradually raise testosterone levels over its period of intake. Since an immediate boost in testosterone is often desirable, athlete will commonly use HCG (Human Choronic Gonadotropin) for a couple of weeks, and the continue treatment with Clomid.
Dragon Pharma Clomid is also effective as an anti-estrogen. Most athletes will suffer from an elevated estrogen level at the conclusion of a cycle. A high estrogen level combined with a low testosterone level puts an athlete in serious risk of developing gynocomastia. With the intake of Clomid, the athlete gets the dual effect of blocking out some of the effects of estrogen, while also increasing endogenous testosterone production.
Effective Dose: 1 – 2 tabs a day
Clomid is indicated for the treatment of ovulatory dysfunction in women desiring pregnancy. Impediments to achieving pregnancy must be excluded or adequately treated before beginning Clomid therapy.
The work-up and treatment of candidates for Clomid therapy should be supervised by physicians experienced in management of gynecolic or endocrine disorders.
Clomid, at recommended dosages, is generally well tolerated. Adverse reactions are usually mild and transient and most disappear promptly after treatment is discontinued.
Male athletes also find that thee elevation in both follicle stimulating hormone and (primarily) luteinizing hormone will cause natural testosterone production to increase. This effect is especially beneficial to the athlete at the conclusion of a steroid cycle when endogenous testosterone levels are depressed. If endogenous testosterone levels are not brought beck to normal, a dramatic loss in size and strength is likely to occur once the anabolics have been removed. Clomid can play a crucial role in preventing this crash in athletic performance.
For athletes using anabolic steroids, Clomid can normalize the testosterone level and the spermatogenesis (sperm development)within 10-14 days. For this reason it is primarily taken after steroids are discontinued. At this time it is extremely important to bring the testosterone production to a normal level as quickly as possible so that the loss of strength and muscle mass is minimized.
50-100 mg./day seems is a sufficient dosage for athletes. Clomid is usually taken with fluids after meals. If several tablets are taken it is recommended that they be administered in equal doses distributed throughout the day. The duration of Clomid intake should not exceed 10 to 14 days. Most athletes begin with 100 mg./day taking one 50 mg. tablet every morning and evening after meals. After the fifth day the dosage is often reduced to only one 50 mg. tablet per day.
If you miss a dose, take it as soon as remembered if it is within an hour or so. If you do not remember until later, skip the missed dose and resume your usual dosing schedule. Do not “double-up” the dose to catch up.
Side effects include ovarian enlargement, vasomotor flushes, abdominal-pelvic discomfort/distension/bloating, nausea and vomiting, breast discomfort, visual symptoms, headache and abnormal uterine bleeding. If you notice other effects not listed above, contact your doctor.
