For a 200 lb male, 15 mg/kg would translate in to 1,350 mg per week of nandrolone. I didn’t have full access to the other two articles, so I can’t see what dosages where used.I was unable to get beyond the abstracts.
The first article mentioned 15mg/kg per day (rats). For me, that would be about 8,820mg/week.
In the second article, do they mention dosages?
All of the articles mention abuse. Wondering if this could be an issue with doses commonly used for TRT, like 80mg or 100mg/week, for example.
What dosages were you using, and for how long, when you experienced cognitive effects?
That’s a very good point that perhaps much of the potential neurotoxic effects of nandrolone from these studies are based on supraphyiological dosing protocols. My concern, though, is whether or not the potential effects on the hippocampus and other brain regions exists at lower dosages.
Perhaps a lower dosage like 50-100 mg weekly would have no negative effect, but for me it certainly did. Perhaps it is also based on vulnerability as well.
To answer your question, when I took nandrolone it was dosed at 100 mg per week. I began to experience increased recall time, decreased memory function, and decreased complex reasoning within about 4 weeks or starting nandrolone.
