Primobolan® Depot is the injectable version of the steroid methenolone. This of course is the same constituent in Primobolan® Orals (methenolone acetate), both produced by the firm Schering.ln this preparation, an enanthate ester is added to the steroid, which causes a slow and gradual release from the site of injection. Its duration of activity would thus be quite similar to testosterone enanthate, with blood levels remaining markedly elevated for approximately two weeks. Methenolone itself is a long acting anabolic, with extremely low androgenic properties. On the same note the anabolic effect is also quite mild, its potency considered to be slightly less than Deca- Durabolin® (nandrolone decanoate) on a milligram for milligram basis. For this reason, Primobolan® is most commonly used during cutting cycles when a mass increase is not the main objective. Some athletes do prefer to combine a mild anabolic like "Primo" with bulking drugs such as Dianabol, Anadrol 50® or testosterone however, presumably to lower the overall androgen dosage and minimize uncomfortable side effects. When choosing between Primobolan® preparations, the injectable is preferred over the oral for all applications, as it is much more cost effective.
Primobolan® displays many favorable characteristics, most which stem from the fact that methenolone does not convert to estrogen. Estrogen linked side effects should therefore not be seen at all when administering this steroid. Sensitive individuals need not worry about developing gynecomastia, nor should they be noticing any water retention with this drug. The increase seen with Primobolan® will be only quality muscle mass, and not the smooth bloat which accompanies most steroids open to aromatization. During a cycle the user should additionally not have much trouble with blood pressure values, as this effect is also related (generally) to estrogen and water retention. At a moderate dosage of 100-200mg weekly, Primobolan® should also not interfere with endogenous testosterone levels as much as when taking an injectable nandrolone or testosterone. This is very welcome, as the athlete should not have to be as concerned with ancillary drugs when the steroid is discontinued (a less extreme hormonal crash). At higher doses strong testosterone suppression may be noticed however, as all steroids can act to suppress testosterone production at a given dosage. Here of course an ancillary drug regimen may be indicated.
Side effects in general are usually not much of a problem with Primobolan® Depot.There is a chance to notice a few residual androgenic effects such as oily skin, acne, increased facial/body hair growth or an aggravation of male pattern baldness condition. This steroid is still very mild however, and such problems are typically dose related. Women will in fact find this preparation mild enough to use in most cases, observing it to be a very comfortable and effective anabolic. If both the oral and injectable were available for purchase, the faster acting oral should probably be given preference however. This is simply due to the fact that blood hormone levels are more difficult to control with a slow acting injectable, the user also having to wait many days for steroid levels to diminish if side effects become noticeable.
Overall, Primobolan® Depot is actually considered to be one of the safest anabolic steroids available. Steroid novices, older athletes or those sensitive to side effects would undoubtedly find it a very favorable drug to use.The typical "safe" dosage for men is 100-200mg per week, a level that should produce at least some noticeable muscle growth. In European medicine it is not uncommon for Primobolan® to be used safely at such a dosage for extended periods of time. Among athletes, men may respond to weekly doses of 200mg but regular users will often inject much higher doses looking for a stronger anabolic effect. It is not uncommon for a bodybuilder to take as much as 600 or 800mg per week (6 to 8 100mg ampules), a range which appears to be actually quite productive. Of course androgenic side effects may become more pronounced with such an amount, but in most instances it should still be quite tolerable.
In addition, it is most popular for male bodybuilders to stack Primobolan® with other (generally stronger) steroids in order to obtain a faster and more enhanced effect. During a dieting or cutting phase, a non-aromatizing androgen like Halotestin® or trenbolone can be added. The strong androgenic component should help to bring about an added density and hardness to the muscles. On the other hand (or in addition), we could add Winstrol®, another mild anabolic steroid. The result of this combination should again be a notable increase in muscle mass and hardness, but in this case the gain should not be accompanied by greatly increased side effects. As mentioned earlier, Primobolan® Depot is also used effectively during bulking phases of training.The addition of testosterone, Dianabol, or Anadrol 50® would prove quite effective for adding new muscle mass. We would, of course, have to deal with estrogenic side effects, but in such cases Primobolan® should allow the user to take a much lower dosage of the more "toxic" drug and still receive acceptable results.
Women respond well to a dosage of 50-1 OOmg per week, although (as stated above) the oral should usually be given preference. Additionally, some choose to include Winstrol® Depot (50 mg per week) or Oxandrolone (7.5- 10mg daily) and receive a greatly enhanced anabolic effect. Remember though, androgenic activity can be a concern and should be watched, particularly when more than one anabolic is used at a time. If stacking, it would be best to use a much lower starting dosage for each drug than if they were to be used alone.This is especially good advice if you are unfamiliar with the effect such a combination may have on you. A popular recommendation would also be to first experiment by stacking with oral Primobolan®, and later venture into the injectable if this is still necessary.
All forms of Schering Primobolan® Depot will be packaged in 1mL glass ampules. They will contain l00mg of the drug in Europe, and 50mg in Mexico. A single 100mg ampule will generally sell for around $15 to $20 in the United States. The 50mg ampule was usually a bit cheaper, perhaps $10 on average. However, as of late, we have not seen this steroid in Mexican pharmacies. It is possible that Schering has dropped Primobolan® from production in this country too. This was not a very cost effective product anyway, as it would usually sell for at or near the price of the 100mg version.
The situation with injectable Primobolan® Depot is similar to that of the oral Primobolan® tablets.The drug is available, but not as abundantly as it was a few years ago. Schering has been actively discontinuing this drug in most of the markets around the world, and only a few countries still carry it at this time. Most notably, Greek Primobolan ampules have been discontinued, as have German, French, and Italian versions of the drug. The only major source countries for genuine Schering Primobolan Depot right now are Spain and Turkey. The way things are going, it will only be a matter of time before the drug is discontinued in these areas of the world as well. There are many counterfeits of both items, so be cautious to purchase these products only after careful examination.
To help differentiate real Turkish Primobolan® Depot from the many counterfeits, here are a couple of things to look at. First, open the bottom flap of the box. It should be cut at an unusual angle, and will not be even left to right like a normal box flap. Many of the more popular fakes missed this, probably for lack of a proper cutting dye. However, at least one counterfeiter has correctly copied this. Another good point of detail to look at is the Schering logo, which is found on the box and product insert. The counterfeiters tend to show the ribbon in the center of the Schering logo as one filled block < symbol. The correct logo has this ribbon with a small cut where the top and bottom lines intersect, as if to show that the top ribbon is resting on the bottom. This small detail is probably lost when the original box and insert were scanned into a computer by the illicit operation. Looking towards the ampule, first take notice of the lot number and manufacture date (not the expiration date). The first number in the lot always corresponds with the year the drug was made. Many of the fakes thus far have missed this trait, and these digits do not match.
In regards to Spanish Primobolan® Depot, this item is also a high profile item for counterfeiters. There have been many fakes of circulating the past several years, often in large numbers. We've tested a couple of the more popular fakes of recent, and both came back with no steroid ingredients. Spanish Primo is, likewise, a high-risk item. Also, note that Schering is now operating under the name Scherimed in Spain. Many sophisticated copies of the old Schering item are likely to circulate for a while, until counterfeiters update their items. Make sure any new product you purchase reflects the new packaging change.
The Thai company British Dragon makes a Primobolan injectable called Primobol. It comes in a 10mL vial, and provides 100mg/mL of steroid. This is a good product, and highly recommended if you are in the market for an affordable and safer alternative to Schering/Scherimed Primobolan. Note that BD does not place a hologram on its injectable vials anymore, but instead uses a red metallic foil inlay (blue for Eastern European exports) on the label (see: Security Stickers). Also, the top of a real BD vial should bear the product name formed into the plastic, and be removed to reveal a custom rubber stopper carrying a dragon logo in the center.
