Testolone (RAD140) is a selective androgen receptor modulator (SARM) being developed by the pharmaceutical company Radius for the treatment of breast cancer and muscle wasting in postmenopausal women. Testolone is very new to the commercial market with its initial discovery in 2010.
The initial studies, company reports, and anecdotal user reviews have been highly promising for the muscle building properties of RAD 140. According to the company’s website, the FDA accepted their investigational new drug application and the first human clinical trial is scheduled to begin in 2017.
RAD140 Testolone Half Life
Testolone (RAD140) half-life is up to 20 hours. This means once a day dosage will work just fine. You can also run half the dose in the morning and half in the evening.
The detection time is unknown, but my best guess based on user trials is you want to give it 3-4 weeks to clear your system if you are a tested athlete.
RAD140 Testolone Dosage
The recommended dosage of RAD140 is 10-20mg/day. Women and first time users will want to start at 10 mg/day. Advanced users and larger athletes will want to use 20 mg/day. The half-life of RAD-140 should be 12-18 hours. Thus, a once a day dosage will work just fine. testolone (rad140) results. But many users choose to split up their daily dosage into an AM and PM dosage.
How to use RAD140?
There are two possible ways in which you can use RAD140. Since there is said to be minimal suppression of testosterone, you can use it in a standalone dose for a 6-8-week cycle. Nattys and SARM-only users will probably go this route.
The other way is to add it to a Test cycle, either when you are cruising or blasting. The advantage of adding it to your Test cycle is to amplify the effects of test, to reduce the sides, especially on the liver, prostate and seminal vesicles and lastly, to facilitate the drier lean mass look.
Yes, RAD140 will make you look more vascular. Also, it will not shrink your testes or enlarge your clitoris.
Some athletes have added it to their PCT cycle while coming off test. But we wouldn’t recommend that because what is known about RAD140 at this point of time is too little.
There are conflicting anecdotal reports that it may or may not cause suppression. And no matter how small the risk, you wouldn’t want to add something that causes suppression during a PCT phase.
The recommended dose is 20-30 mg/day. Start low and work up the numbers depending on how you feel.
Unlike other SARMS like Ostarine that take a while to hit you, this stuff will start showing in the mirror from week 1.
