I think the sides are exaggerated. Yeah u can run 50mg Ed for 8 weeks. That's how I normally run it. Next cycle I'm going for 100mg Ed. Tren is insane. I lose bf rapidly, but it makes me look huge. Just ripped and jacked. 50mg is a good beginners dose. I've Hurd of some people run 30mg Ed. I personally like the feeling of 50. I think u will too.
