[quote="blinki"]It made me curios about how much they tend to take. The sites I googled were suggesting 4-12 times a standard dose a doctor would prescribe for low levels of testosterone. Assuming they start with average levels then they must end up ridiculously high. I still can’t get my head round wanting to do that even after watching the film. I can get the urge to take some but even 4x what they label says is just something else.
From my understanding it doesn't work like that, you start off with a relatively small dose and get good results. So then you double the dose and only see one and half level of improvement. So the gains are exponential rather than linear.
The dosage on the label isn't really a relevant issue as it is intended for a totally different thing. It's like saying its crazy to take a 300mg aspirin for a headache compared to 80mg aspirin to lower the risk of heart attack. Same drug different dosage for different things.
I think this video from Dave Tate helps balance the view of the real effect PEDs have.
