Alot of what holds true for the injectable version of this product (see: Winstrol Depot) also holds for the tabs. There are, however, two noticable differences between the two forms of administration. Nitrogen Retention is greater with use of the injectable version, when equal doses are administered. Paradoxically, it would seem that on a milligram for milligram basis, users have reported that oral administration of Stanozolol was more potent than the injectable produc for building muscle. This could be due to winstrol's ability to lower SHBG (Sex Hormone Binding Globulin) levels and also elevate IGF (Insulin-Like Growth Factor) above those experienced with the injectable version.

Women athletes commonly reported the use of Stanozolol at a dosage of 10mg daily, and I am of the opinion that women should preferentially use the injectable version when possible.
Men have found that it works well when used in 50-100mg daily doses, and stacked very efficiently with Testosterone and Nandrolone or Trenbolone.
