Side Effects of Clenbuterol
The side effects of Clenbuterol, what are they and what can we do to control them? There are several possible side effects of Clenbuterol, and unfortunately, most will have to contend with a few at one level or another. The primary side effects of Clenbuterol will surround the compound’s stimulating nature. These effects can be annoying and bothersome, but it is controllable and most will adapt quickly. However, the stimulating effects of this compound can be brutal for some people and will keep some from being able to use it.
%%Panel.AdClen%% Beyond the stimulating side effects of Clenbuterol, there are two more categories of effects worthy of note. Such effects are less common than the primary Clenbuterol effects, but they must be addressed. The first group in this category will be labeled as secondary Clenbuterol side effects. Some of these effects can be due to the compound’s stimulating nature, but others are unique. They are, however, less likely than the primary. Then we’re left with the severe side effects of Clenbuterol. Severe side effects of Clenbuterol are possible and a poor response could cause such effects to occur. However, severe side effects of Clenbuterol are most commonly associated with abuse.
Primary Side Effects of Clenbuterol
Clenbuterol Hydrochloride is a stimulant, and as a result, the primary side effects of Clenbuterol will be of a stimulating nature. Most who supplement with the compound will experience a very wired and/or jittery feeling throughout the day, shaky hands and increased sweating. As the body begins to adapt to the compound such effects should begin to wane. However, they can be very bothersome and will keep some from being able to use the compound.
In order to manage the primary side effects of Clenbuterol, it is imperative that your dose begins very low. Most men will begin with 40mcg per day, while most women will find 20mcg per day to be the perfect starting point. Due to adaption the dose will need to increase as use progresses; however, it should be small increases and only as needed. If you increase dramatically and rapidly you will find the primary side effects of Clenbuterol can be overwhelming.
Secondary Side Effects of Clenbuterol
The secondary side effects of Clenbuterol can include insomnia, headaches, nausea and muscle cramps. Insomnia can be very pronounced in some who supplement. It is important that your Clenbuterol be taken first thing in the morning, but because the half-life of Clenbuterol extends past the thirty hour mark this won’t help some people. If you cannot control the insomnia factor you will need to seek out an alternative thermogenic.
Headaches are also possible due to the compounds stimulating nature. This will normally wane in a few days as the body becomes accustomed and should not be severe. If severe headaches are a problem or they do not dissipate, you will need to seek out alternative thermogenics. The same can be said of nausea, but nausea should not occur in most people.
Of all the secondary side effects of Clenbuterol, while not extremely common, muscle cramps can be by far the most bothersome. Staying well hydrated and maintaining proper electrolyte balance will protect most people. However, some will need to supplement with taurine as Clenbuterol is noted for depleting taurine.
Severe Side Effects of Clenbuterol
When examining the severe side effects of Clenbuterol, we will find they are not only severe they can be dangerous; in fact, fatal is an accurate description. The primary severe side effects of Clenbuterol once again surround the compound’s stimulating nature and include high blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, trembling and possible panic. Data has also shown that the side effects of Clenbuterol can include cardiac hypertrophy, which is a thickening of the heart muscle. This can result in a reduction in the chamber of the heart’s size as well as left and right ventricles.
