Take the peptide course, which is divided into three phases:
- The first week the dosage is 2 mg of the substance administered intramuscularly after a week, but not more than 10 mg in total.
- Loading, when in the second week the amount from 2 to 6 mg is divided into 2 dosages and is taken every other day.
- As support, a similar amount of the peptide is administered every 14 days, but for a month.
Some experts believe this scheme is not the best, because they believe that the second phase does not bring results, and the dosage must be selected individually for each.
