Methenolone Enanthate Primobolan Depot
Methenolone is an anabolic androgenic steroid that was first released in 1962 by Squibb under the trade name Nibal (oral) and Nibal Depot (injectable). This was a very short-lived product on the U.S. market and by the mid-1960’s the German pharmaceutical powerhouse Schering would own all rights to the Methenolone hormone. Through Schering the hormone would be released as Primobolan (oral) and Primobolan Depot (injectable). The injectable Depot version will be our focus here.
Primobolan Depot carries one of the highest safety ratings among all anabolic steroids. This steroid is relatively mild and can be safe for both men and women. In fact, the steroid has even been used successfully in premature infants and children in specific therapeutic settings. The hormone is also well-known for having a solid record in the treatment of muscle wasting diseases, osteoporosis and sarcopenia, and is a great steroid for treating prolonged corticosteroid exposure. Primobolan has also been used effectively in the treatment of carcinoma, as well as hepatitis in some cases.
In a performance capacity, Primobolan Depot is not what we can call a strong mass promoting steroid. For the male athlete, it’s also not what we can call a foundational steroid. However, man or woman most will find Primobolan Depot to be far more effective and beneficial than its oral counterpart.
Primobolan Depot Dosage
In a therapeutic setting the standard male Primobolan Depot dose will fall in the 100-200mg per week range. Initial therapy often begins with 200mg per week and is reduced to 100mg per week after a little time has passed. In some cases, the dose may be reduced as far as 100mg every 2 weeks. For the male athlete, 300mg per week is normally considered the low end dose. However, 200mg per week will provide catabolic protection during a cutting phase, but 300mg per week will be far more effective. As this is a relatively mild anabolic steroid, most men will find they can tolerate 400-500mg per week very well. Even 600mg per week should be well within the realm of control for most men. Doses above 600mg per week are not uncommon, but keep in mind doses that fall in the 600mg or above range will potentially exasperate the androgenic activity of the steroid. Regardless of the total dosing, 8-12 weeks of total use is normally recommended. As for stacking, Primobolan Depot will stack well with most all anabolic steroids. As it will most commonly be used during the cutting phase steroids like Anavar, Masteron, Trenbolone and Winstrol are all common additions.
While it is used in a female therapeutic setting, Schering has never officially listed standard Primobolan Depot doses. For the female athlete, 50-100mg per week is generally all the Primobolan Depot they will need. More importantly, such a dosing range should be very controllable in terms of virilization for most women. Always keep in mind individual sensitivity will play a role and while some will experience virilization symptoms at this dosing range most will not. Women who go above the 100mg dosing will more than likely experience virilization symptoms. If other steroids are stacked with it this is almost assured. Regardless of the total dose, most women will find 4-6 weeks of use to be more than enough. Many women find stacks of Anavar and Primobolan Depot to be very beneficial with the Methenolone only making up 4 weeks of a total 8 week cycle. A final note on female use; many women may find oral Primobolan to be more controllable. It is not as effective as the Depot version; however, it is a little easier to control blood levels with this fast acting form.
