    start at 60mcg/day and work your way up SLOWLY to 100mcg/day after about a week. than start going back down to about 80MCG/day at the end of 2 weeks. than take at least 2-4 weeks off before going again.

    whoa, i read start at 20mcg a day. If the 20 dosage is true, a jump that big could result in some pretty nasty sides.

    If this is your first time using Clen, start at 20mcg and then go up 20mcg each day until your reach 100mcg. If at any time during those increases you experience bad sides, drop down 20mcg on the next day and then the next day try the same amount in which you got the bad sides. If you are still getting bad sides from the amount then drop down 20mcg again and stay at the level until you get to 12 days. On day 13 taper down to half your maximum dose or 60mcg which ever is higher. On day 14 taper down to 40mcg.

    Take at least 2 weeks off (or go on an EC stack).
    On your next Clen cycle, if you didn't get any bad sides from 100mcg then you can pyramid up to 120mcg and higher doses on cycles after that if there are no sides on previous cycles. 200mcg is probably the highest dose you should ever go up to and that would be after doing a number of clen cycles with little or no sides.

    After 14 days, clen starts to loss its effectiveness so a 2 week on, 2 week off cycle is the recommended unless you are stacking it with something like DNP.

    If you're still in doubt it's better to be safe with 20mcgs than sorry with a higher dose. I agree with the rest of what TBigs said regarding cycle duration, etc.

    And here you are "trying" to give advice automatically asuming that everyone weighs the same as you and will react to it just like you. Larry f here is trying to get some CORRECT advice and gets conflicting info from people like yourself who don't think before they type. The correct answer would be start with 20mcg a day (a rather safe dosage to start out at) to see how the body reacts to it. Then SLOWLY up the dosage as you get used to it. I mean, you're telling a guy to start with 60mcg because YOU weigh 215lbs. That's good advice bro!

    yes it does, the body becomes accustomed to it in about two weeks. This is the reason behind the 2 on/2 off cycle.

    acecombact1- If you're using 250mcg now after your two weeks and it's lost it's effectivenes, you're simply wasting product by continuing. Just take two weeks off and then start back at 20. It should be just as effective as last time.

    hey, before you get your panties in a knot, chill out. if you check some dosage schedules posted here, they will tell you 60mcg to start with. and if i really "tried" to give him good advice i'd tell im to use the damn search button. it's insensitive pricks like you who think they know it all and flame somebody for giving their opinion that give bodybuilders and weight lifters in general a bad name.

    If you have a concern start at 20mcg and work you way up, but starting at 60mcg is pretty much a safe starting point. Many peps I have read on run up to the 120-160mcg range and some even run at the 200+ mark.

    Once you know your tolerance levels you can start your ramp up closer to your top mark and I really see no point in ramping down towards the end of the cycle...just stop at your mark.

    i started mine at 60mcg and worked my way up to 140mcg for 2 week. I didnt taper down and felt no crash. I used ephedrine on the 2 weeks to follow. I used that for fat burning purposes and lost 18lbs in a month.

    I am new to clen so please forgive me if this is common knowledge as i have not seen this brought up in any of the threads.
    Should eca be taken while on clen or the following 2 weeks inbetween cycle.
    I know ephedra acts on the same receptor so i would think using it after the clen cycle would just contribute to more receptor down regulation. However using it while on cycle could be to much stimulation. So what does everyone think is the best approach?

    Nice thread.

    I would recommend going to the website for the product you purchased and it should tell you the dosage per ml etc then you can see what you would need to use for good fat loss. The basics are laid out well by most above.

    I think I may make a well laid out sticky / FAQ for the masses If I can get some good information together.

    I just finished a clen run today actually. I did five days on, two days off for three weeks. The first week start at 20 mcgs and work your way up in 20 mcg intervals. Notice how hard the sides hit you. If your having trouble handling the side then don't up the dose the next day. The second week you can start a little higher if you want. My cycle looked as follows:

    Week 1: 20/40/60/80/100
    Week 2: 40/60/80/100/100
    Week 3: 60/80/100/100/100

    I saw great results using this method. Just start low and work your way up as you assess your tolerance. The first couple days you will probably get the shakes real bad, headaches, or notice your heart beating faster than normal, but these normal fade pretty quickly. After about three days I never noticed any sides except for maybe an abnormal amount of sweating (not really a side).

    T3 without anabolics has a good chance of eating up muscle. Clen IMO opinion is much better than eca. Clen, t3 , and aas is best, but if I could only use 1 it would be clen.

    I can't give exact numbers, as I didn't take any bodyfat measurements, but I can say it was quite noticeable. Before I started, my abs were flat, but there was no noticeable definition. Now after three weeks, I can honestly say that I can easily see the outline of all six abs. I did this while eating maintenance calories. I did greatly up my cardio though. I also maintained muscle very well as I at least maintained strength on all exercises and some even moved up during this time.

    Why in the WORLD would you not only taper your cycle this way, but worse - give someone else the advice to do so?

    What good does it do to build your body's tolerance to Clen up to 100mcg in the first week, only to drop it to 40mcg the following? You basically wasted a lot of Clen.

    Not to mention, the tapering idea applies throughout the ENTIRE cycle. So for a 21 day cycle of it, you should've done the following:

    20/40/60/80/100mcg running 100mcg day 5 through 17, then on day 18, tapering OFF with 80/60/40/20.

    However, even in that instance, your receptors basically cause Clen to stop working after two weeks. So not only did you waste a lot of Clen by tapering incorrectly, but you wasted literally the majority of the third week's worth.

    To counteract this and force your receptors to remain opened, IF you decide to run it for more than two weeks, every night during week 3, take 50-100mg of Benadryl before going to bed. This will allow you to get one more week on the Clen, hence giving you a beneficial 3 weeks worth.

    Apologies if I came off as a jerk, but I hate to see folk giving bad advice to newbs, as I have had such bad advice in the past as a new guy cause me to make some bad choices on a cycle or two.

    People run clen many different ways, so I'm not going to flat out say that your argument is wrong, but don't say my method was useless, because believe me it wasn't. I researched for several weeks before ever using clen. Some people do 2 weeks on / 2 weeks off. Others will just stay on continuously until they stop getting the effects of clen. However, there is plenty of other people who do the 5 days on / 2 days off method I described.

    Myself (and others) feel that doing a 5 days on / 2 days off method allows the clen to remain more effective and to keep our bodies from adapting to it as well as if we were to just stay on for 3 or more weeks. Also, you said I was simply wasting those lower doses the last two weeks, I can assure you I was not, because every week those lower doses would hit me just about as hard as they did the first week, so the two day breaks, definitely helped keep clen effective. Here's a quote from mentaltwich giving his reasons for this method

    I feel it stays more "effective" in your system. Plus, you are getting less of a pogo, think 33-36 hour halflife. So if you go off for 2 days not a big deal, go off for 2 weeks and you may catch alot more bounce back weight.

    Also, you can cut "more and harder" on 5/2 days rather longer 2/2 weeks type cycles.
    As far as ramping down, this is argued both ways. Obviously you like to ramp down and are not open to doing it without ramping down. Read around a little more and you will see that I am correct. There are many people who feel that it is pointless to ramp down and I agree. It is very important to ramp up in order to assess your tolerance however.

    Also the benadryl definitely does help clean out your receptors. I didn't use it myself as I was not planning on using clen for very long. Just a little boost to get my abs to poke through, and it worked.

    didnt read all the above posts so if this is redundant srry, if it steps on someones toe, wel...not sorry lol. I start out at 80mcg, if it is your first time and you have no idea what your tollerance is, cut that dose in half. then every 3 days i increase it bu 20mcg untill i get to 200mcg. after 2 weeks on i start takeing 200mg benedril at night. you should go untill the sides tell you to stop, then back down 10mcg. either taper off, or switch to an ECA stack and taper off when you reach desired results. I also stack it with T-3 for fat loss.

    Before using clen, make sure your training and diet is in order. If you just started working out as your other post said, using clen is foolish in my opinion, especially with 40 lbs to lose. You can lose plenty of weight with proper diet and training. Then, when the fatloss slows add in things to assist you in meeting your goals. The biggest thing is going to be consistency and patience. There are different ways of running jt when you get to that point. 2 weeks on 2 weeks off, or running it straight through, and quite a few other opinions. Start at 20 mcgs and assess your tolerance. Work up to 100-140 mcgs depending on tolerance, in 20 mcg increments. Due to clens halflife(among other things) there is no point tapering off clen. Switching to eca is not a good option either as your receptors will need to clear and you might as well just stay on clen. It is not a magic pill and you really need to be strict with your diet amd traing.

    I could see that. You know what's strange is that I sometimes get lethargic too but it happens when I hit my max dosage. (I don't go higher than 140 mcgs.) I read about the cause of it before but don't recall what it was off hand. It was so bad that I could take it before going to bed and sleep fine. Goes to show that everything whits everyone differently, I guess.

    I agree with Jarhead, diet and training is everything. Supplements are cherries on top.

    Jarhead, when you said "running it straight through" what did you refer to?

    clen of an eca? what do you mean by that? There is no clen in ECA. ECA has ephedrine-caffeine-aspirin.... Clen is extremely different.
