The OTC PCT / Over the counter Post cycle therapy

All the informations needed to do an OTC PCT.

What is an OTC PCT – Over The Counter Post Cycle Therapy ?

An OTC PCT is a little bit different than a normal Post cycle therapy. Instead of using SERMs, we use over the counter post cycle therapy supplements. These supplements can be bought pretty much in any bodybuilding stores. This is why we call it “over the counter”.

What is the best Post cycle therapy, a PCT with SERMs or an OTC PCT ?

Without any doubt, the best post cycle therapy is with SERMs but with some prohormones, an OTC PCT can be enough. The SERMs are the best products to use for a post cycle therapy because the Otc Pct supplements are way less potent. However, the Otc Pct supplements are still enough potent so we can use them for many prohormone cycles.

What are the prohormones I can and can’t take when doing an OTC PCT ?

Prohormones not eligible for an OTC PCT :

Superdrol, Pheraplex, M-1,4ADD , Max LMG, Dymethazine, M-Sten, Cynostane, Methyl-1-Alpha

Prohormones eligible for an OTC PCT :

Propadrol, 11-OXO, Bold, Halodrol, Promagnon, Protodrol, Tren, Epistane-Havoc, Furazadrol, 1-Andro, D-Plex, Prostanozol, Stanodrol

What are the bodybuilding supplements needed to do a proper OTC PCT ?

To do a proper OTC PCT, you will need to take multiple supplements. Why ? To obtain a similar effect to a SERM, you have to combine the OTC PCT/Post cycle therapy supplements. Remind you that the Post Cycle Therapy supplements are here to help boost natural production of testosterone and to control the level of estrogen after a cycle of prohormone.

A testosterone booster :
You need a good testosterone that will boost your natural production of testosterone + control your estrogen level. A good testosterone booster is generally composed with Divinal and Indole-3-Carbinol (I3C).

A Liver support or Full Cycle Support supplement :
Like for any prohormones cycles, you need to take support supplements. These supplements are designed to protect your body (liver functions, lipid profiles, blood pressure, etc.) in a cycle and after in the post cycle therapy. All of them pretty much contain the Milk Thistle and NAC (N-Acetyl-Cysteine) which are good ingredients.

An Anti-Estrogen :
Sometimes the testosterone boosters don’t contain anti-estrogen ingredients. Therefore, you need to take an anti-estrogen supplement that will control your level of estrogen (reduce it).

Where to buy OTC PCT Supplements ?

More Questions – Answers about the OTC PCT

I have everything needed to do an OTC PCT, can you guarantee me that is a safe solution for a PCT ?
Yes and No. The safest and best method to do a PCT is to use SERMs. Otc Pct Supplements are good for some cycle of prohormones but everyone reacts differently to prohormones.

When does an OTC PCT starts ?
Like a normal PCT with SERMs, an OTC PCT starts the day after you’ve stopped your last pills of prohormones. (Ex: Last pills on monday, you start taking otc pct supplements on tuesday.)

What is the dosage for the Otc Pct Supplements ?
Just follow recommendations from manufacturers.

    Excellent tips on OTC/PCT info!
    It is crucial if doing a PH cycle to do your PCT research first. In my earlier years I did it backwards. What PH do I want to take and then look for a PCT later on. This did not work well, needless to say. Now when I think about doing another PH Cycle, I do research on what is the best OTC/PCT for the particular product I am going to take. This has helped mne cut down on sides and keep more of my gains.
    Thanks again for the info…Good Job!

    So ive been trying to come up with a nice cutting and lean gain cycle! Ita going to be my first PH cycle

    a 4 week cycle
    Celtic labs EPi 2/2/2/2/2/2/2 3/3/3/3/3/3/3 4/4/4/4/4/4/4 3/3/2/2/2/1/1 (1 cap is 10mg)
    LGI 11-X 2/2/2/4/4/4/4 5/5/5/6/6/6/6 7/7/7/8/8/8/8 8/7/6/5/4/3/2 (1 cap is 75mg)

    4 week cycle
    AMS 1-AD 2 caps per day
    Celtic labs EPi 0/0/0/0/0/0/0 1/1/1/1/1/1/1 2/2/2/2/2/2/2 1/1/1/1/0/0/0 (1 cap is 10mg)
    LGI 11-X 2/2/2/4/4/4/4 5/5/5/6/6/6/6 7/7/7/8/8/8/8 8/7/6/5/4/3/2 (1 cap is 75mg)

    3 Or the original one
    a 4 week cycle
    AMS 1-AD 2 caps per day
    LGI 11-X 2/2/2/4/4/4/4 5/5/5/6/6/6/6 7/7/7/8/8/8/8 8/7/6/5/4/3/2 (1 cap is 75mg)

    Which one would you go with?
    is the first 2 better cycles then the original one?
    Ive read some about epi but im not an expert, so what do you guys think? Better gains than my first suggestion? Sides??
    Will a OTC PTC still work?? I can get my hands on a serm but its about an extra 100 usd at least

    Will use on cycle supps and all that

    Quick responds are appreciated, not long until my trip to the US and need to order a bit before

      Hey man

      For a perfect cutting-lean gains prohormone cycle, I would go with option 1 !
      Just a note about the dosage of celtic epi, take 4 pills a day (40 mg) only if you feel no sides effects. It’s your first cycle and 30 mg of epistane should be enough.

      From my opinion and experience, Epistane is a better choice than 1-AD for lean gains. That is because epistane has anti estrogen effect so gains are leans and you can also experience some fatloss.

      You could go with an OTC PCT but this is always more safe with a SER (whatever the cycle you decide to run between the 3 options). There are a few good anti estrogen supplement like Erase PRO that can be used in OTC PCT to have less risks. Yes a serm means more $$$ but it’s for your health… It’s up to make your choice.

      Sorry for the late answer !

    I’m going to do the “beginner” level of Super DMZ- 1/day for 4 weeks. Though the ph are strong, do you think I could use AD-3 and a natural test booster for PCT?

    I also am using e-control and Cycle armor weeks 1-4, and continue cycle armor during PCT.

      Hey Jay, are you taking Super DMZ 2.0 or 3.0 ?

      Both versions are strong (3.0 is stronger), I honestly recommend to go with a serm to have a quick recovery and protect your health.

      You could “possibly” go with an ad-3 + natural t-booster if you have the 2.0 version but this is not the safer option.

    I am 19 years old, can I take prohormones? Try to message me on my email also. Can you recommend me a list of prohormones and SERMS? Whats the difference between a PCT and a SERM?

    • admin September 4, 2014 at 4:15 pm - Reply

      Hey Omar
      19 years old is a bit young to take prohormones. In the end, this is your choice but I would not recommend it until you’re 21.
      If you still want to take a prohormone, my suggestion is to go with the 1-Andro prohormone : Link to 1-Andro Informations
      The abbreviation “PCT” means Post Cycle Therapy (generally, it represents the 4 weeks after your prohormone cycle) and “SERM” (a chemical product) stands for Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulator. A SERM can be used for a post cycle therapy but you can, in some cases, use an Over The Counter product then we call it OTC PCT.

        Hi, remember me? The 19 year old guy? I have a question. Which prohormone would be better? epi or 1-andro for me? I have epi and even 11-ketotestosterone, but I am nervous. I have a great PCT: Wicked PCT by AAR. milk thistle, hawthornbery even D-Aspartic Acid! Please! What dosages would be good “sweet spot” for all those compounds? I am gonna take a low dosage because I want to be on the “safer” side. Thanks:)
