    Why are people so agianst otc pct?


    It's curious. Don't want to be bashed or anything. I am just very curious. Mild ph and all everyone goes to serm. I know they are safe and better just wanting to know what a otc pct is good for ?

    OTC Pct is good to supplement a serm. Most have test boosting ingredients, cortisol control and other goodies. But they won't restart you if you're shut down. I know plenty of guys that ran absurd cycles and never used a serm with great success. And I know guys that get gyno off of halodrol and epi cycles their first run. I would say have a serm no matter what you run. They're easy to get, cheap for what they do, taste like death if you do the rc route, but it beats a broken dick and tits.

    A lot of people don't know why. They just parrot what everyone else says. I have read numerous times on here about over the counter products that work exactly the same as a SERM. Honestly one of the reasons I don't run PH/DS type products anymore because I'd rather not purchase a "research chemical" made by some "bros" in Moms basement.

    I've yet to see anything OTC that is shown to have documented SERM effects in humans. It doesn't make sense to even run the risk and not get a SERM. They're not difficult to find even in HG form.

    ALWAYS use a SERM for proper PCT ...... There are several out there and can be sourced from several reputable companies. Having a SERM on hand is a must and should be on hand prior to even starting your cycle. IMO.

    In addition to a SERM for a well rounded PCT I would recommend an OTC PCT support supp that contains T boosting compounds as well as an AI to help control the conversion of T into Estrogen while you are regaining your normal hormonal balance. Some ( myself being one of them) recommend DAA as part of PCT to further aid the re-establishment of proper T levels.

    REVOLUTION PCT is one OTC PCT product that contains all of the OTC compounds mentioned .....

    Because something mild like epistane still shuts you down enough that you need a serm to restore levels. Stuff like the PP androseries or the androfactory stuff you don't need a serm, but most other compounds you will.

    This should be pointed out as well: it's just as easy to get legit powder of a SERM as any DS. Each company that decides to venture into this area has the same access to these chemicals as each other.

    Also it may not be illegal for "research purposes", which to be honest is joke, but it's still illegal to posses without a prescription.

    Let me rephrase. It's not a scheduled narcotic in the same way as AAS. There's really nothing established as far as punishment. In the presence of AAS, it can enhance a charge.

    Look, if it's in your car and you have a warrant and your car gets seArched yeah you'll catch a misdemeanor charge for it. If it's in your cAr and you get stopped and say no you can't search my car, and you have no narcotics in the car you're fine. Dogs won't detect it. The only way you'll get nailed for it are as follows.

    1. You buy it from someone that's working for the police.
    2. You get flagged by customs or a postal inspector. In which case you're hosed as soon as you leave your mail box with it. If you make it past a day you're fine.
    3. Your making steroids in your house, meth, whatever , and you get raided.
    4. You sell it to a friend and he gets popped and rats you out.
    5. You tell everyone you have it and a cop hates you and develops probable cause and spend the time writing a warrant. And then happens to serve it and find it. And charge you with it.

    It's not a narcotic. It's not on watch lists. Dogs aren't trained to find it. It falls simply under the same statute as taking your girlfriends antibiotics for your strep throat. If it's liquid. Put it in a scope bottle or something else. If it's pills, well those all have pharmacy markings to make identifying pills possible. So you can't really hide those.

    So. Use common sense. Keep your mouths shut. Be prepared for all possibilities. And don't keep all your **** together in one place. Oh, and if you've never been in trouble and no one had any reason to watch you. They won't be looking so don't be paranoid.

    I'd rather just not use any product that needs a PCT or SERM pct. Really with these "research chems" you have no idea what your really drinking anyway. How do you know they won't screw up and put clen in your bottle instead of tamox?. I mean come on, you're gonna put so much blind trust in the "company" producing your research chems?.

    Research companies live and die by their reputation. A bunk batch and word gets out they produce ****. Then no or buys from them. This is a small community but worth a lot of money. Beyond that the raws are cheap so there is no reason for them to not give you what you order.

    Yes. Another reason I don't use them. I'd think the research chem companies don't really care much about customers as much as say a company that sells DS/PH product and regular supplements. Of course that also would depend on the company. If it's just one of those fly by nights that just pop up to sell designers exclusively, then yeah I'd be just as weary as I'd be with the research chem companies.
