Winstrol tablets are usually taken twice a day; morning and evening with some liquid to ensure even absorption of the drug. These tablets are especially taken by those people who do not like the idea of injecting themselves everyday. Taking injections daily makes the site sore and red. The injected version has an edge over the oral version as the injection spreads faster in the body and becomes effective more rapidly than tablets. Another drawback of Winstrol tablets is that it is harmful for the liver. In order to get them accepted by the liver, oral steroids like Winstrol are c-17 alpha alkylated. With this change the liver does not reject it. However it becomes difficult for the liver to break down the oral steroids. Oral steroids like Winstrol also affect the ability of the liver to cleanse the body of the waste materials. Those who take Winstrol tablets for a longer period of time may suffer from jaundice or in acute cases may suffer from severe liver damage. Therefore all the users of oral steroids are advised to consult doctors and go for regular check ups in order to avoid any complications.
The normal dosage for men is between 30-70 mg per day for the tablets and 25-50 mg per day for the injectable version of Winstrol. Winstrol is often combined with other steroids depending on what the personal goals of the athlete are. To gain muscle mass (bulk up), Winstrol is best combined with a stronger androgen such as testosterone. This will give the cycle a good anabolic effect while minimizing estrogenic activity. This results in excellent increases in lean muscle mass, as opposed to the more common bulking cycle which greatly increases muscle mass while also increasing water retention and some gains in fat. To lose fat (cut up), Winstrol is best combined with a non-aromatizing androgen such as trenbolone or Halotestin. This combination can create a strongly defined, hard look. This is a very attractive look sought out by many bodybuilders.
