Dbol Dosage

I’ll be starting my first cycle in just about 2 weeks, and, thanks you to you guys and a lot of research, I think I have everything planned out nicely. Still, a few lingering questions remain.

Running Test E every 3rd day at 250mg for 12 weeks. Kickstarting the cycle with Dbol 40mg ED. My question is about the Dbol. I have heard both to take it in the morning all at once, and I have heard to space out dosages throughout the day. Could anyone with experience let me know what has worked best for them? Thanks.

I rather do 30mg a day @ 4 weeks.

spliting the dosages during the day would be less harsh on ur liver. of course this is nothing factual just word of mouth and what makes more sense to me.

The reason some suggest a morning-only dose is that the active drug will clear your system by the end of the day. This would have less impact on your natural test production as you release testosterone primarily at night, which is why your T levels are higher in the morning and drop steadily throughout the day. Whether or not this is true, or the extent of its efficacy, remains speculative as there is no direct scientific evidence regarding this scenario. It does make sense and can be effective (IMO) for very short oral-only cycles, though you will still have some natural T suppression.

Since you are using an injectable and are going to have suppressed T levels anyway it would not be of benefit to use morning-only dosing. Spreading the dose throughout the day will be more beneficial to both performance and side effects as your T levels would remain more stable. I would suggest 3x/day dosing every 8 hours. You can do more if you would like, but this is sufficient.

As far as dosing and liver toxicity, the total stress on your liver would likely be a function of daily dosing as opposed to both dosing strength and intervals. This means 30mg in the morning would likely have the same end effect as 10mg 3x/day. These are just my thoughts based on general liver function and pharmacological principles.

However, with normal doses and cycle length you should not experience liver dysfunction. I would suggest avoiding painkillers that are hepatically metabolized, alcohol, and other drugs that are hepatically stressful while taking any oral AAS.

Last time I used dbol I was taking 80mg a day and I felt like SHIT! So be careful, it’s not hard to overdo dbol. Personally I don’t even like it anymore. Compared to anavar it’s garbage.

Great, thanks again for the great info, Schwarz. I will do as you suggest, and split the dosages up. Anybody else think I should start with 30mg instead of 40mg? In this, as in so many other things regarding AAS, I have heard multiple opinions. Maybe I’ll start at 30mg the first week and if I still feel fine bump it up a bit.
