Melanotan II (MT-2) functions by stimulating the receptor that produces melanin, which aids in the darkening of skin pigmentation. Because of this action, the individual will tan easier and darker than he would without the use of MT-2.
MT-2 also stimulates the receptor, which acts to increase penile erectile function. Clinical trials have shown promising results for Melanotan II in regards to erectile dysfunction.
The effects of Melanotan II revolve around nothing more than tanning and possible erectile dysfunction relief. A darker and deeper tan may be noticed in a few days (assuming one is also tanning) and should produce notable results in a few weeks. The longer one uses MT-2 the darker he will get.
The effects of Melanotan II on erectile dysfunction take approximately 4-6 hours to take effect and should last 6-12 hours depending on individual response. Timing is important if used for this purpose.
Melanotan-2 is provided in dry powder form and reconstituted with bacteriostatic water.
MT-2 may be injected subcutaneously (under the skin) or intramuscularly (in the muscle) with subcutaneous being the most common and convenient. Melanotan II should be kept refrigerated at all times, and should be discarded in 30 days after reconstitution.
Melanotan II is typically taken at a dose of 0.5-2mg per day with 0.5-1mg being enough for most individuals who use it for tanning purposes. The same 0.5-1mg dosing is sufficient for erectile dysfunction treatment.
Melanotan-2 side effects
The most common side effect of Melanotan II is appetite suppression, but it should not be as significant as one might associate with diet or fat loss medications. Nausea and fatigue or a lightheaded feeling can also be common in some individuals. Such effects may be strong but should clear quickly. Dosing may need to be reduced should such effects occur until a more comfortable level is reached.
The side effects of Melanotan II can also include the darkening of hair, although not significantly. It may also include the darkening of moles, and in some cases, may be cause to discontinue use
