Dosage & method of use
DOSING FOR BODYBUILDERS
Stanozolol is widely used by bodybuilders and other athletes. It not only increases weight gain but also increases exercise performance.The drug increases weight gain gradually but does not retain the water. It selectively burns the fat while retaining the protein. In medicine, Stanozolol is only used an oral drug with doses of 2 -6 mg per day in total. Because the drug has potent liver toxicity, the higher doses are not used. However, bodybuilders seem to use a dose at least 5-15 times higher than that. One reason for this is that theTHAI formulation appears to be less potent than the product made by Pfizer. Some bodybuilders use 30-40 mg/day and others use 50-100 mg/day.The major problem with oral dosing is that a lot of absorbed Stanozolol goes to the liver and is broken down.The drug can also be injected IM if one can get the supplies. The dose of an IM injection is about 50mg/day.The site of injection is usually the buttocks and this site must be altered every few weeks to prevent abscess and sores. The injectableformulation is milky white in color with microcrystals. Fake Stanozolol injectable products are common and there is no way to tell simply by looking at a product to determine if it is fake. Some bodybuilders claim that the real Stanozolol will reveal settled microcrystals at the base when standing – however, talcum powder can do the same. The drug is typically used 1-2 months before a sports event.The drug must be stopped at least 2- 3 weeks before to avoid detection. The majority of people do see muscle bulk build up after 3-4 weeks. Infact, Stanozolol can significantly improve exercise performance for short periods. Many reports exist of athletes who claim that spontaneous burst in energy are common after 3-4 weeks of use. However, this effect is not seen to last for long periods. Despite what most builders believe higher doses of Stanozolol are harmful and do not result in improved results. Most experts recommend that the drug not be used for more than 4-6 weeks. Stanozolol is frequently used for 3-4 weeks and then cycled with other drugs. Stanozolol can cause water retention many athletes also use water pills to rid the excess body water.
Stanozolol is also widely used by females for two major reasons- it is a potent anabolic agent and has very small androgenic activity.This results in a body which lacks the virilizing features which are so common with the use of other anabolic steroids. However, when the drug is used at high doses or for long periods, the virilizing effects do appear.The unsightly virilizing effects are often not reversible even when the drug is stopped.
Like all anabolic steroids, Stanozolol also has some side effects.These effects are rare and most people tolerate them without a problem.The most common side effects include:
- hepatic necrosis – common
- liver cancers (rare)
- decreased libido
- depression, insomnia, anger, mood changes
- nausea, vomiting, diarrhea
- deepening of voice in women
- hair loss
- hair growth in women
- fluid retention
- increased blood sugars
- decrease HDL cholesterol
While most of these changes reverse after stopping the drug, some of the virilizing effects may be irreversible. For women who do take this drug, a word of warning.The drug should be stopped at the first signs of virilization because some of the masculine features may not reverse even after the drug is stopped. Stanozolol has also been associated with reports of extensive liver damage which can be life threatening.Therefore, it is highly recommended that anyone using anabolic steroids regularly has their liver function regularly monitored.
