RPN Havoc – Are The Gains Worth The Risk?

What Is RPN Havoc?

RPN Havoc is a designer prohormone that was created to help users add muscle mass during a bulking cycle or preserve lean muscle tissue during a cutting cycle. A prohormone is essentially a precursor hormone to an anabolic hormone. When you take a prohormone your body will process it and convert it into an active anabolic hormone.

The active ingredient in RPN Havoc is Methylepitiostanol also known as Epistane. Epistane is an orally active 17α-alkylated anabolic steroid. Due to RPN Havoc being a 17α-alkylated anabolic steroid it does carry some liver hepatotoxicity side effects.

Is RPN Havoc Legal?

RPN Havoc (Epistane) is no longer legal in the United States as it was banned by the FDA in 2014. You can view the FDA’s list of banned prohormones here. Even though RPN Havoc is illegal there is still a big underground market for this product and prohormones in general.

Half Life and Dosage

First time users of RPN Havoc should not exceed 30mg daily. RPN Havoc has a half life of 6 hours so it should be taken in 10mg doses split into 3 times per day. Advanced users can go up to 40-50mg daily but by increasing the dosage you also increase the risk of experiencing more side effects.

Cycle Length

A typical epistane cycle would last 4 weeks and some users will go as long as 6 weeks. Due to RPN Havoc’s strain on the liver it’s recommended to keep these cycles shorter in length. After completing the cycle you should take at least 4 to 6 weeks off before doing another cycle.

RPN Havoc Side Effects

The following side effects have been reported by users using epistane:

  • Liver damage (hepatotoxicity)
  • Back and calf pumps (pain and tightness in the muscles)
  • Increased blood pressure
  • Headaches
  • Possible hair loss
  • Joint pain
  • Dry skin
  • Lethargy
  • Natural testosterone suppression

Do You Need A PCT (Post Cycle Therapy)

Since RPN Havoc can cause natural testosterone suppression it’s advised to run a PCT immediately after finishing your cycle. Your organs, especially your liver were under a lot of stress during the cycle so it’s a good idea to do a proper PCT in conjunction with cycle support supplements.

Cycle Support Supplements

Oral steroids and prohormones in general are usually pretty harsh on the liver. This is because they are 17α-alkylated which allows them to not be fully broken down with the first pass through the liver. Whenever taking any type of oral anabolic it’s highly recommended to take cycle support supplements to help relieve some of  the stress on your organs. You can take individual supplements like Tudca, Milk Thistle and NAC or you can use a more comprehensive all in one supplement like Revive MD Liver or N2 Guard

Nutrition Is Key To Your Success

I really can’t emphasize how important your nutrition is to determining how well your results will be from any fitness program regardless if you’re using PEDs or not. I’m going to assume that most people reading this article are looking to build a lean, muscular physique so it’s my recommendation that you should look into carb cycling as a possible strategy. You can read all about how carb cycling can help you get results fast by checking out this article: The Ultimate Guide To Carbohydrate Cycling – 2020 Edition. You can also check out this carb cycling calculator to help you take the guesswork out of figuring out your calories and macros.

Results

If you’re using RPN Havoc during a bulking cycle you can expect to gain anywhere from 5lbs to 7lbs of muscle in a relatively short period of time. If you’re using RPN Havoc in a cutting cycle you can expect to possibly gain some muscle while losing a good amount of fat. Since epistane does not aromatize you shouldn’t experience any water retention resulting a harder, learner, more vascular appearance. This is all possible as long as your diet and training are dialed in. Whenever you are using PEDs you should make sure to dial in your nutrition and training so that you can really take advantage and maximize your results.

Wrapping Up

While RPN Havoc might not be as easily available today as it was a few years ago, you can still find it if you search hard enough. Taking RPN Havoc will help you to improve your physique in a relatively short period of time but it does come with some risk and side effects. Those who have any underlying medical conditions should avoid taking this product and PEDs in general. If you do decide to take RPN Havoc make sure to have your nutrition and training dialed in so that you can achieve maximum results. Best of luck to you on your fitness journey!
