In males with delayed puberty : Various dosage regimens have been used; some call for lower dosages initially with gradual increases as puberty progresses, with or without a decrease to maintenance levels. Other regimens call for higher dosage to induce pubertal changes and lower dosage for maintenance after puberty. The chronological and skeletal ages must be taken into consideration, both in determining the initial dose and in adjusting the dose. Dosage is within the range of 50 to 200 mg every 2 to 4 weeks for a limited duration, for example, 4 to 6 months. X-rays should be taken at appropriate intervals to determine the amount of bone maturation and skeletal development (see INDICATIONS AND USAGE , and WARNINGS ).
In a study done on Testosterone Enanthate , a dose as high as 600 mg’s produced better results in subjects compared to those who received lower doses. The most fat was lost and lean body mass, strength and size was gained by the group who used the highest dose (600 mg/week), when compared to any of the lower doses studied (2). In the same study, HDL cholesterol was lowered and some acne was experienced by the subjects. There was roughly a 15% gain in Lean Body Mass from 20 weeks of 600mgs/week of testosterone enanthate . HDL cholesterol was also lowered and the subjects experienced acne.
