For performance athletes, standard doses for men range between 25 and 50 milligrams a day. The most common dose is 25 milligrams taken orally or 50 milligrams injected. Such doses will produce solid results while allowing for control of side effects. In bodybuilders, the most common dose is 50 milligrams a day, with some going as high as 100 milligrams. Such high doses are not normally suggested outside of fitness models and bodybuilders, however, as side effects can become uncontrollable. If you are lean with body fat less than 10 percent , then these high dosages can produce an excellent physique for a show or competition. Do not take these high doses for more than seven to 10 days, however, because of the likelihood of cardiovascular and hepatotoxic side effects. Total use of Winstrol should not exceed two months , and then you should take a two-month break from this drug.
The oral dosage normally ranges from 20 to 50mg per day. The injectable is often used at 50 to 100mg taken every other day. 21 Gauge needles are recommended because the suspension might block the finer needles while the injection is taking place. The aqua-based injectables are notorious for causing injection pain and even abscesses. For this reason some users resort to drinking the suspension instead, the effects of doing this are exactly the same as taking tablets or capsules orally. Winstrol should be stacked with other steroids for best results.
Of concern to any user of Winstrol during a cycle should be its intoxicating effect on the liver . The drug is a 17aa structured steroid , meaning it has been structured in a way which allows it to be orally bio-available, yet this has the negative effect of making Winstrol potentially harmful to the liver. It is therefore paramount the duration of a Winstrol cycle is limited, the dose of the drug is not excessive, the user does not stack it with other hepatotoxic compounds, does not drink alcohol whilst on cycle, and does not use Winstrol if they have an underlying medical condition which effects the livers health. There are supplements available which also help protect the liver (Milk Thistle, Liv-52 etc), and these would be advisable during any Winstrol cycle .
