In veterinary medicine Equipoise is most commonly used on horses, exhibiting a pronounced effect on lean bodyweight, appetite and general disposition of the animal. This compound is also said to shows a marked ability for increasing red blood cell production, although there should be no confusion that this is an effect characteristic of newly all anabolic/androgenic steroids. The favorable properties of this drug are greatly appreciated by athletes, Equipoise being a very popular injectable in recent years. It is considered by many to be a stronger, slightly more androgenic Deca-Durabolin. It is generally cheaper, and could replace Deca in most cycles without greatly changing the end result.
