Dianabol (methandrostenolone, methandienone) is one of the most important anabolic steroids in the world of bodybuilding since its release in 1958. Widely known in the world, this oral drug is best used for steroid courses in combination with injectable steroids, although it can be beneficial, even if used alone.
The effect of most injectable anabolic steroids is greatly enhanced when combined with Dianabol. And this gain will be greater than from a simple increase in the dose of an injection steroid to the same number in milligrams. A striking classic example is the trenbolone. Although the total dose of steroids in all three of the following examples is the same, nevertheless, a daily dose of 50 mg of trenbolone acetate in combination with a daily dose of Dianabol 50 mg will be a much more effective steroid course than 100 mg alone of trenbolone acetate alone or 100 mg of one Only Dianabol per day. Side effects of the first course will also be the most minimal. In other words, these compounds act synergistically: the whole is greater than the sum of its constituent parts. Most likely, this is due to various mechanisms of influence.
With Dianabol, all injectable steroids are perfectly combined with one unique exception: the higher the dose of testosterone, the less noticeable is the effect of Dianabol, and, in the end, its use is completely meaningless. For greater clarity: taking 500 mg of testosterone per week, Dianabol can expect a very significant increase in the effectiveness of the steroid course, but with a weekly dose of 1000 mg of testosterone, Dianabol will only cause a mild improvement. As for 2000 mg per week, further strengthening of the course will most likely become completely invisible, except, unless, the athlete has already reached the maximum possible results at this dose of testosterone. Most users in this category are not included.
For those who like taking Oxandrolone (Anavar) as a basis for their steroid courses instead of any injectable steroid, Dianabol also perfectly matches with this oral steroid. However, it should be remembered that hepatotoxicity will be less if an injection steroid is substituted for oxandrolone with Dianabol.
There is practically no synergistic benefit from the combination of Dianabol and Anadrol. Most users do not. If you still decided on such a course, for example, due to the presence of both drugs in an amount insufficient for each application separately, then I prefer to use half the dose of each of them. In other words, instead of taking, say, a daily dose of 50 mg of Dianabol or 150 mg of Anadrol, a good alternative would be a combination of 25 mg of Dianabol with 75 mg of Anadrol per day.
Dianabol can also be used by itself. Many treat such courses with contempt, but in the old days a lot of athletes have created themselves magnificent muscles, using only Dianabol, and even today some achieve good results, taking exceptionally only it. However, in my opinion, this group includes only athletes who are particularly sensitive to this drug, but their results are not typical.
Side effects of Dianabol are conversion to estradiol, suppression of the natural production of testosterone and hepatotoxicity. In addition, there may be other side effects that are characteristic of any anabolic steroids, such as high blood pressure, increased hematocrit, adverse effects on the hair and skin, and a worsening of the lipid spectrum of the blood. However, usually Dianabol is well tolerated. Aromatase inhibitors, such as anastrozole (Arimidex) and letrozole, will help limit the conversion to estrogen, and a properly formulated course should prevent liver problems. This means that Dianabol should be taken no more than 8 weeks, followed by a period of rest from exogenous hormones, at least twice as long as the course.
For example, if Dianabol is used for six weeks, then it should take at least three weeks without using any oral anabolic steroids, or even better six weeks or more.
In addition to all of the above advantages, it should be attributed to the fact that due to the low cost of production, Dianabol is faked less often than many other anabolic steroids.
Initially, “Dianabol” was a trademark of Ciba-Geigy and it would be more correct to use this name only with respect to its products, but for many years this name has become synonymous with any product from methandrostenolone.
The daily dosage of Dianabol is usually 20 to 50 mg per day. Unlike most injection steroids, increasing the dose above this threshold almost does not bring additional benefits. Instead, those wishing to strengthen the effect of the course should add another anabolite
