Injectable steroids are injected into muscle tissue, not into the veins. They are slowly released from the muscles into the rest of the body, and may be detectable for months after last use. Injectable steroids can be oil-based or water-based. Injectable anabolic steroids which are oil-based have longer half-life than water-based steroids. Both steroid types have much longer half-lives than oral anabolic steroids. And this is proving to be a drawback for injectables as they have high probability of being detected in drug screening since their clearance times tend to be longer than orals. Athletes resolve this problem by using injectable testosterone early in the cycle then switch to orals when approaching the end of the cycle and drug testing is imminent.
As with all steroids, Deca can cause dangerous damage to the liver and kidneys. While its effects are generally less severe than those of some other more potent anabolics, toxicity can be severe, especially in those who use large amounts. In addition, men who use this true anabolic run the risk of gynecomastia, which is the growth of breast tissue resembling that of women. Deca is one of the steroids that is least likely to cause gynecomastia, but the possibility still exists. It also can cause blood clots and detrimental changes in the levels of cholesterol in the body. While changing cholesterol levels are not necessarily fatal, blood clots can be.
The usual dosage of Deca – Durabolin is 200-600 mg a week for male and 50 -100 mg per week for women. The duration of a cycle with Deca is varies from 8 to 12 weeks. Deca-Durabolin can be stacked with Anabol / Sustanon and Testosterone for muscle bulk growth. During a cycle and in PCT it can also be stacked with Clomid/Nolvadex . The side effects of Deca – Durabolin include high blood pressure, blood clotting, increased production of the sebaceous gland, acne, headaches and sexual overstimulation, as well as several typical side effects for women like deepening of voice, hirsutism, acne, high libido and, at, hypertrophy of clitoris.
