Primobol is the trade name for the synthetic steroid released by Balkan Pharmaceuticals. Primobol tablets are intended for oral administration and is produced as 50 mg tab. Each tablet contains 50 mg of Methenolone Acetate hormone, and can be used both in men and women. Primobol is available on sale in a blister with 60 tablets.
Primobol is quite a unique oral steroid. Primobol does not aromatise to estrogen, thus estrogen related side-effects are not seen in Balkan Pharmaceuticals' Primobol usage. This means that acne, water retention, gyno, etc, are all not concerns when using Primobol. Thus Primobol becomes a very useful steroid for those who are easily prone to undesirable side effects such as acne and gyno. Due to the low water retention seen in its use, Primobol is often used effectively when cutting. It is not only effective when cutting due to low/nil water retention, bit it also proves very useful when cutting due to its anabolic nature and nitrogen retention properties, which basically means that it holds onto muscle very well when in a calorie deficient mode as one wound be when cutting.
Many claim Primobol to be side-effect free, except for experiencing slow but steady, quality and retain able muscle gains when on it for longer periods of time (>8weeks). Due to lack of water retention, etc, the gains you see on Primobol will be quality muscle gains. Gains on Primobol are easily kept, however although Primobol is not as harsh on your HPTA (hypothalamus-pituitary-testes axis) it will shut you down. Do not make the mistake of thinking that post cycle therapy (PCT) can be avoided with Primobol use, because this is not the case. Recovery should be easier from Primobol than most other anabolic steroids, but proper PCT of Tamoximed 10 and/or Clomed will be necessary. Primobol for many does not generally affect one's libido; however for some it lowers it if used in a cycle without test. Usually I find that this is the case with heavier users of gear, i.e. those that use larger amounts of test and/or stay on AS for longer periods of time. In such cases, if test is not used in the cycle with Primobol, appropriate ancillaries drugs such as Viagra, Cialis, etc may be needed on hand in case of libido problems. However as said, for most recreational AS users, loss of libido generally is not a problem with Primobol.
The active Primobol daily dose used by bodybuilders is between 50-150 mg, this is why the pill of 50 mg are more efficient then the one of 10 mg. In the pharmaceutical prospect of Primobol steroid produced by Balkan Pharmaceuticals it is mentioned: "In case it isn't prescribed different, it will be taken like this: 2-3 mg/day per / kg of body", that means that at a weight of 50 kg it will be taken 2-3 tablets/day. A bodybuilder with 100 kg should take 200-300 mg/day. This means 4-6 tablets of 50 mg/day. This kind of dose is high and although this example show that it is necessary a big dose of oral acetate. This means that in the blood remains only small quantities of active substance.
If it is used only this kind of tablets, this will lead to an increase of strength and muscle mass only to the persons that are at the beginning of the steroid treatment, and at women. The situation changes when Primobol tablets are combined with steroids that have a medium or strong androgenic action that doesn't retain water. The beginners of steroid treatment get a good increase on strength and muscle without retaining water, when taken 50-100 mg of Primobol steroid/per day and 150 mg of injectable Winstrol/week. The advanced ones talk about quality muscle increasing when using 150 mg Primobol/day Winstrol Depot every 2 days and 76 mg Parabolan/day.
