Anavar Dosage: Anavar doses vary based on your experience with anabolic steroids and your tolerance to the compound. The right Anavar dose also depends on whether you use it for weight loss or bulking. Beginners may want to try an Anavar only cycle at first to determine their individual tolerances. The Anavar half life is eight hours, so you can take a single daily dose or divide the dose and take it twice per day. Women usually start with a dose of 10mg per day; men may take 20mg or 25mg per day. The maximum recommended Anavar dosage for women is 40mg per day, and the maximum dose for men is 120mg per day.
