Regardless of your purpose of use most will find 8 weeks of use to be very effective and very efficient; yes, you could stretch it another 4 weeks or so but in the name of responsible use and our health we will limit our course of action to 8 weeks in most cases. Generally speaking most men will find 50mg per day to be highly effective and generally all the Stanozolol they ever need with 100mg per day being the max. While 100mg per day can be used safely you really open the door for cholesterol issues and in most cases such a dosing will be reserved for competitive bodybuilders during the final weeks of their contest prep and is really the only reason a dosing would ever need to go this high.
Keep in mind this steroid has a very short half-life, as you recall it is only 24 hours and daily administration is optimal; however, as frequent injections can be annoying for some an every other day schedule can be implemented but you will not find this to be optimal. If you cannot tolerate daily injections you are advised to stick with tablets or to find another anabolic steroid to use in its place; however, you will find most anabolic steroids that carry traits similar to Winstrol Depot will need to be administered on a frequent basis as well.
For the female athlete, generally 10mg per day is about as high as you’ll want to go with 20mg being a decent dose for female physique competitors the last few days before a competition. A dose of 20mg or more for any extended period of time will almost guarantee symptoms of virilization and even low doses can bring this about. While 10mg per day can cause virilization effects the probability is far in your favor but if symptoms do occur simply discontinue use as soon as they show. Failure to discontinue could lead to the symptoms setting in and becoming permanent and this is not something any woman will ever want. As female dosing of this hormone should be low most women will simply choose tablets but if tablets are not available Winstrol Depot can be a fine choice.
Side effects that are a little more exclusive to Winstrol Depot have much to do with the uncomfortable and highly irritating injections (resulting almost exclusively from the suspension format). It is not uncommon to have very sore injection sites in the hours and days following administration, and to have a significant loss of range of motion of that muscle due to the pain. Often times, bodybuilders will even have to shift and schedule workouts around their Winstrol Depot injections, as the muscles injected might be too sore and tender to train soon afterwards. Winstrol itself carries with it comes significant side effects as well, most particularly the significant negative impacts on cholesterol levels in the body. Winstrol is notorious for reducing HDL (good cholesterol) levels and increasing LDL (bad cholesterol) levels in the body, which can contribute to increased risk for cardiovascular disease if left negatively altered for extended periods of time. Proper supplementation with cardiovascular supportive nutrients and compounds are highly advised. Being that Winstrol Depot is also C17AA modified, it does exhibit potential liver toxicity, although less so than its oral counterpart. Regardless, it is highly advised to include proven effective liver support compounds (such as TUDCA and/or NAC) during a cycle of Winstrol Depot.
