Primabolan Depot. Active: Methenolone Enanthate
Much of the information on Primobolan tablets is also valid for Primobolan Depot. There are, however, a few differences between the two compounds. The most distinct difference is, of course, the various forms of administration since Primobolan Depot is injected intramuscularly and Primobolan tablets are taken orally.
One important difference not immediately noticed lies in the different composition of Primobolan. The tablets are the acetate form of the substance methenolone while the injectable Primabolan Depot is the enanthate form of methenolone. For many bodybuilders enanthate is simply the longer effective form of Primobolan. This is indeed true but inadequate as the only explanation. Primobolan Depot, due to the long duration of its effect needs to be injected only once a week. On the other hand, Primobolan tablets should be taken daily. When Primobolan Depot is taken in a dosage of 200 mg/week there is a low water retention level that stimulates the buildup of strength and muscles. Since this is not so with the oral acetate form this could be one reason for the better effect of the Depot.
Steroid novices can achieve good results by taking 200 mg/week. Within eight weeks they can gain 10 — 15 pounds without having to worry about losing them after discontinuing the use of the compound.
Primobolan Depot, although with a weaker effect than Deca, is a good basic steroid with a predominantly anabolic effect and, depending on the goal, can be effectively combined with almost any steroids. Those who would like to gain mass rapidly and do not have Deca available, can use Primo-Depot together with Sustanon 250 and Dianabol. Those who have more patience or are afraid of potential side effects will usually be very satisfied with a stack of Primobolan Depot 200 mg/week and Deca 200-400 mg/week. We believe that the best combination is Primobolan Depot with Winstrol Depot.
200-400 mg/week is the normally used dosage of Primobolan Depot although there are enough athletes who inject a 100 mg daily. Primobolan Depot, like the oral acetate form, is not converted into estrogen; however, low water retention can occur, which is the reason why during preparations for a competition the injections are usually preferred.
Side effects with Primobolan Depot are minimal and manifest themselves only rarely and in persons who are extremely sensitive. Due to the androgenic residual effect, side effects include light acne, deep voice or increased hair growth. Primobolan Depot has even less inﬂuence on the liver function than the oral form so that an increase of the liver’s toxin values is extremely unlikely. The blood pressure, cholesterol level, HDL and LDL values, as with Primo tablets, usually remain unaffected. Primobolan Depot is generally the safest injectable steroid. Athletes whose liver values strongly increase when taking anabolic steroids but who still do not want to give up their use, under periodical supervision of these values, can try a stack of Primobolan Depot, Deca100, and Androxon. A well known bodybuilder in Germany who had already won several national titles has admitted that his liver was damaged by his too frequent use of the 17-alpha alkylated steroids Dianabol, Anadrol 50, and Oxandrolone. He was, however, able to bring his body back to national championship level by taking 200 mg Primabolan Depot/week, 400 mg Deca/week, and 200 mg Androxon/week without a negative effect on the liver values.
Primabolan Depot, like the tablets, has only a very small inﬂuence on the hypothalamohypophysial testicular axis so that the body’s own testosterone production is only reduced when very high dosages are taken over a prolonged period of time.
Women normally prefer the tablets but there are several female athletes who inject 100-200 mg or more Primobolan Depot/ week. 100 mg Primobolan Depot/week, combined with 50 mg Winstrol Depot/week, is usually an effective stack for many women and is tolerated well so that virilization symptoms are rarely observed. To avoid an undesired accumulation of androgens in the body women should pay attention that there are three to four days in between the relative injections. For competing female athletes this stack, however, is too weak.
Primabolan Depot is often used in a dose of 100 mg/week to bridge over steroid breaks which, in our opinion, is not a good idea: The non-stop use of anabolic steroids has a strong negative inﬂuence on the body ’s own testosterone production and prevents the body from normalizing its functions. Dosages as low as 100 mg Primobolan Depot/week or 50 mg Deca/week (also often used for bridging) are non-toxic and mostly have no side effects. However, the effectiveness of such an intake must be strongly doubted since both compounds in this dosage are much too weak to effectively counter affect the catabolic phase which begins in the steroid phases. Better results can usually be obtained with Clenbuterol without inﬂuencing the hormone system.
Those who believe that in the ”steroid free time” they must still take some “stuff ” to bridge the usages should inject the long acting Testosterone enanthate (e. g. Testoviron Depot 250 mg/ml) every two to three weeks or even better inject a product like Ciccolibido.
