Dosing or Oral Steroids and Half Life?

Good morning guys,

Bit of a hypothetical question here with some practical applications.

So the example: If someone were taking an oral steroid with a half life of 8hrs, and they wanted to use 100mg of that oral per day, and they had 25mg pills.

Would it be more effective to dose 25mg, every 8hours, or
50mg every 12hrs?

I see a lot of orals have a half life around 8 hours, some are 7.5, some are 8, some are 9.

Define more effective. Liver health? More long term gains? More “on” feeling? It all depends how you define it.

Simple answer for this particular example: not going to matter enough to notice. I would just do 8am 25mg - 2pm 50mgPreWO - 10pm 25mg

All an hour pre workout.

what oral are you talking about? just tell us…it’s an anonymous internet message board, for God’s sake…

When used used winstrol in the past, orally, I dosed 25mg every 8 hours during a 4 week cutting phase . Seemed to work decently… I didn’t lose any muscle mass.

Now looking at using 75mg oral turinabol daily at the end of a test cycle.

To clarify I guess I meant effective for gains… I had been told that having a nice even level of the compound is best for gains. I had also been told that dosing all at once is best for liver health .

If anyone can explain or source their logic would be appreciated too.

Thanks a lot guys!

Mr.Science: Steroids raise your nitrogen balance and subsequently make protein synthesis work to utilize the nutrient’s and build more lean body mass and fat and retain water.

This half life b.s, is only theoretical.Do you do hourly Blood draw’s to establish metabolism of each and every drug? Bro: just train,lift heavy,eat and rest.Forget about all the Mind-Fuck detail’s they mean shit!!! john
