Clen Cycle, Side Effects & Dosage – Complete Guide

Clen Cycle Schemes for Men and Women

There are three types of steroids in bodybuilding—bulking, performance, and cutting steroids. Cutting steroids are the most commonly used out of the three, since they are not targeted at professional bodybuilders or athletes.

Clenbuterol as Cutting Drug

Although not a “true” steroid in nature, Clenbuterol is classified as a cutting drug and Clenbuterol cycles are cutting cycles. One of the main advantages of the drug is the relative ease of using it. Clenbuterol is usually used alone in a clen-exclusive cycle, although sometimes it is used alongside other performance-enhancing drugs and anabolic androgenic steroids, for better growth of skeletal muscle and faster fat burning. This product is amongst the best cutting-cycle stimulants which stimulate the burning of calories by to increase the basal metabolic rate (BMR) and core body temperature.

Clen has a long half-life of up to 48 hours and is metabolized in the liver, and quickly absorbed in 25-30 minutes after oral administration.

Best Clenbuterol Cycles for Men and Women

Sopharma Clenbuterol is available in 20 mcg tablets. These drug cycles are usually incremental, reaching up to 8 tablets for men, and 4 tablets for women. It can be used alone, or in combination with other performance-enhancing drugs. Clenbuterol has a relatively long half-life of 35 hours, and cycles usually revolve around 2 weeks on, followed by 2 weeks off.
The best clen cycle does not exceed 12 weeks for safety concerns. Users begin at low doses, and increase the dose by 20 mcg weekly or every two weeks. Clenbuterol may have mild side-effects, which this cycle prevents from becoming severe and intolerable.

During off weeks, users may substitute Clenbuterol with Yohimbine or Ephedrine. Clen should not be taken after 4 pm, and adequate hydration is always a must. After the end of the cycle, the thermogenic effects will wear off in about two months, returning the core body’s temperature to normal. The anti-catabolic and anabolic effects dissipate after about 18 days.

 

 

Most common questions for new users of Clen:

What is the right dosage for me?
What is the right dosage, how fast to increase the dose and what is the maximum i can take? There is plenty of information online. Bodybuilding-related message boards and steroid communities; however, it is mostly contradictory, with various recommended “dosages” and “schedules” by different users. This proves to be confusing to users who want to try out the drug, but don’t know what is the recommended clenbuterol dosage for them. Excessive amounts of clen are easily excreted with the urine, however overdosing on this drug is possible and can have severe consequences. Thus, caution is needed when designing your intake plan.

Starting Dosage

Clen acts as a stimulant to the Beta-2 receptors, increasing the core body temperature and the basal metabolic rate (BMR), in turn forcing the body to burn off more energy, stored in fats. It doesn’t take a big dose of clen for those effects to occur—men will experience them with 40 mcg of Clenbuterol a day, while for women 20 mcg a day will have the same effect. Those are the maximal recommended starting doses for both genders—starting with more than 40 mcg per day is possible, but is not recommended. It takes less than 20 minutes for the body to absorb a 20 mcg clen dosage, taken orally. Since the main effect of the drug is to increase the core temperature, it takes time for the body to adapt to the change. Users should start with a small dosage of this product, and increase the dose gradually.

Rate of Dosage Increase

40 mcg of Clenbuterol a day are enough to start the process of burning fat, but in order to reveal the full potential of the drug, users should gradually increase their daily dose, until they reach up to 120 mcg per day. Clen is quickly absorbed by the liver but not as fast as many believe. Even smaller doses give a feeling of stimulation which wears off with time—giving the false sensation that the drug is no longer working. Maintaining the same dose will keep the BMR stimulated for up to seven weeks, albeit with time, the effect will wither.

To prevent the drop in enhancement, most users increase the drug dosage every few days, or every week. The best course of action is to increase clen by 20 mcg—a single tablet, every week or week and half.

Maximum Dosage

Although fairly safe to use, our ClenUK product is a powerful drug, and as such has several side effects which can become severe if you overdose on the stimulant. The excessive increase of the clen dosage is linked to several heart-related problems, including cardiac hypertrophy. To prevent such unwanted outcomes, male users should not exceed 140 mcg per day. The maximum dosage for female users is 120 mcg. A clen cycle must not be longer than 16 weeks per year, with 12 weeks being the recommended safest option.

Clenbuterol Side Effects Revealed

You can find Clenbuterol by Sopharma as 20 mcg tablets, labelled as a bronchodilator. It was originally created as a treatment for various breathing disorders, including asthma; however, today it is mostly used in the cutting cycles of athletes, as well as a complementary fat burning drug.

Sopharma is a pharmaceutical company based in Sofia, Bulgaria, with manufacturing plants in Bulgaria and Serbia. The company was found in 1933, and privatized in 2000. Since 2004, Sopharma has acquired a license, compliant with the European standards for Good Distribution Practices (GDP). Sopharma is known for the high quality of its products, including Clenbuterol Hydrochloride.box of pills and pills

Unfortunately, some competitors seek to take advantage of Sopharma’s reputation, and illegally their lower-quality product as produced by Sopharma. Potential buyers, especially those in the US, should beware and pay attention to the product they are buying. We sell clenbuterol only as 20 mcg tablets (this is the original manufacturer mcg). There is no other variation of the drug under the name of Sopharma. Users should also be aware SOPHARMA BULGARIA does not produce or sell clen as a liquid.

Around the world, it is used as a bronchodilator in the treatment of asthma, and marketed as steroid.

Users who take this drug without prescription may experience several dose-dependent side effects. When using it alongside any other adrenoceptor agonists, those effects might be cumulative. For that reason, using clen in conjunction with ephedrine/ephedra or ephedrine-caffeine-aspiring is not recommended. People with heart-related conditions, such as cardiac issues or hypertension, are also advised against taking clen.

Short-term Side-effects of Clenbuterol

It was developed as a drug for some of the more common respiratory diseases, such as asthma. The drug stimulates the flow of blood and increases the rate of the metabolism, burning off lipids and fat deposits—the main reason why clen is used by athletes and bodybuilders. However, Clenbuterol was not developed as a stimulant, and some short-term side-effects may arise due to this:

  • Muscular cramps
  • Hypertension
  • Nausea
  • Palpitations
  • Insomnia
  • Nervousness
  • Headaches
  • Muscular tremors
  • Sweating
  • Cardiac hypertrophy (in rare cases)
  • Heart muscle necrosis (not demonstrated in humans)

Those short-term effects will gradually disappear once the user stops taking Clen HCL and the body expels the drug from its system. If you are experiencing any of those side effects, contact a doctor for help in controlling the doses. You can further minimise the side-effects by making sure your body is adequately hydrated while you are on clen.

Muscular cramping

The most common side effect of Clen is muscular cramping. The probable cause of this side-effect the deficits in the electrolytes sodium and potassium, insufficient hydration, and the depletion of Taurine in the liver. Taurine is an amino acid which helps stabilise cell membranes and hinders nerves from becoming over-excited. Lack of Taurine may results in cramps, tremors, and hypersensitivity.

Although painful, cramps can be easily alleviated by proper hydration alleviated by, and eating Taurine-rich food—particularly fish, beef, and chicken, with each intake of clen. Vegetarians can substitute the meat with bananas and sea algae. Some researchers also recommend Taurine supplementation of 3-5g daily, and Potassium supplementation of 200-400g daily, taken on an empty stomach before bed.

Psychological Side-effects

Although there are several psychological side-effects, none of them are serious or long-lasting. The drug stimulates the blood flow, muscle growth and metabolism, which often results in insomnia and anxiety. Anxiety is an expected side-effect with all types of stimulants, and insomnia should gradually disappear once the body gets accustomed to Clenbuterol. Users of the drug can also experience headaches if their dosage is too big.

All psychological side-effects can be alleviated by decreasing the dosage. They will also disappear once the user stops the intake of clen.

Long-term Side-effects

Research on animals suggests that clen may increase the size of heart muscle cells, possibly due to the increased amount of collagen. Collagen is an inelastic substance which reduces the effectiveness of the heart muscle, especially the output of blood. As a result, extremely prolonged use of this product may result in arrhythmia (irregular heart beat), and, in turn, an increased risk of strokes. Such effects may occur only after an excessive intake of Clenbuterol over a long period of time and have not been observed in humans.

However, Clenbuterol may exacerbate any pre-existing heart condition, including irregular blood pressure. One of the bigger risks, associated with clen, is that left-sided cardiac atrophy can occur as quickly as after four weeks of intake.

Another side effect, associated with Clenbuterol, is increased bone fragility. This, along with the gain of muscle mass most athletes and body-builders aim for, increases the risk of bone fractures.

Although researchers are yet to report side effects in developing bodies, it’s not recommended for teenagers and children without a medical prescription.

Recommended Doses

Clen side effects can be avoided by gradually tapering up of dosages. Most users begin by taking one 20mcg tablet on their first day, and increase the dose by one tablet every day. On the seventh day, the dose of 140mcg will be reached—and users are discouraged from taking more than seven or eight tablets daily due to over-saturation. This will limit most side effects associated with Clenbuterol.
