Provimed (Proviron) by Balkan Pharmaceuticals is a synthetic, orally effective androgen which does not have any anabolic characteristics. Provimed is used in school medicine to ease or cure disturbances eaused by a deficiency of male sex hormones. Many athletes, for this reason, often use Provimed at the end of a steroid treatment in order to increase the reduced testosterone production.This however is not a good idea since Provimed has no effect on the body's own testosterone production but as mentioned in the beginning only reduces or completely eliminates the dysfunctions caused by the testosterone deficiency.
Provimed is therefore taken during a steroid administration or after discontinuing the use of the steroids, to eliminate a possible impotency or a reduced sexual interest. This, however does not contribute to the maintainance of strength and muscle mass after the treatment. There are other better suited compounds for this (see HCG and Clomed). For this reason Provimed is unfortunately cunsidered by many to be a useless and unnecessary compound. You should be aware that Provimed is also an estrogen antagonist which prevents the aromatization of steroids.
Unlike the antiestrogen Nolvadex which only blocks the estrogen receptors (see Nolvadex) Provimed already prevents the aromatizing of steroids. Therefore gynecomastia and increased water retention are successfully blocked. Dosages In the past it was common for bodybuilders to take a daily dose of one 25 mg tablet over several weeks, sometimes even months, in order to appear hard all year round. This was especially important for athletes appearances at guest performances, seminars and photo sessions. Today Clenbuterol is usually taken over the entire year since possible virilization symptoms cannot occur which is not yet the case with Provimed.
Since Provimed is very effective male athletes usually need only 50 mg/day which means that the athlete usually takes one 25 mg tablet in the morning and another 25 mg tablet in the evening. In some cases one 25 mg tablet per day is sufficient. When combining Provimed with Nolvadex (50 mg Provimed/day and 20 mg Nolvadex/day) this will lead to an almost complete suppression of estrogen.
