When any individual uses Clenbuterol, he/she should always begin with a low dose of the drug i.e.; 20 micrograms per day and shouldn’t go beyond 200 micrograms per day. The ideal dose for men is 60-100 micrograms per day and for women it is 10-40 micrograms per day. The duration by which best results can be seen is two weeks for Clenbuterol. Post two weeks of the use of the drug, you will have to add anti histamines such as Ketotifen or Benadryl since the CNS is deregulated due to use of clenbuterol in the first two weeks. An alternate way of using Clenbuterol is doing alternate cycles of 2 weeks of clenbuterol consumption by the individual. This helps your CNS to not be fully deregulated.
