Dianabol (Dbol, Methandienone, Methandrostenolone)
Dianabol is one of the most popular steroids of all time, and definitely the most popular oral steroid. That’s why the steroid has so many alternative, trade, and chemical names. It’s very easy to be confused, but if someone mentioned Danabol, Dbol, Methan, Methandienone, Anabol, Methanabol, or Methandrostenolone then most likely they meant the androgenic anabolic steroid Dianabol. Dbol can be found in both oral and injectable forms, though injectable forms are very rare.
Methandienone was created by doctor Ziegler and Ciba Pharmaceutical back in 1950. The steroid was developed for performance enhancement purposes, though the compound carries some medical benefits as well. Doctor Ziegler was working for the US Olympic team. During that time, the Soviet Union was dominating the Olympic games thanks to the use of testosterone. So, doctor Ziegler was trying to create something even better for athletes.
After Dianabol’s introduction, the drug quickly became very popular. The steroid was used in almost every competitive sport. Dbol started a new stage of enhancement performance. Methandrostenolone also became extremely popular among bodybuilders. Nowadays, athletes prefer to use other steroids, but bodybuilders still choose Methandrostenolone quite often. Methandienone was used by many famous sportsmen of the “Golden Era of Bodybuilding”, including Arnold Schwarzenegger.
The Methandrostenolone chemical structure is very simple and similar to testosterone’s. Only two changes were made to the primary male hormone testosterone to create an absolutely new androgenic anabolic steroid with unique properties. Dbol possesses a double-bond between carbons one and two. This modification reduces androgenic nature compared to testosterone. Dianabol’s anabolic activity is around two times higher than testosterone’s.
Both forms of Dbol, oral and injectable, are C17-alpha alkylation. It means the steroid has an added methyl group at the 17th carbon. This methyl group allows the drug to survive liver metabolism, in significant quantity.
Effects of Dianabol
What Dbol does to your body:
Enhances muscle protein synthesis
Raises nitrogen retention
Those traits are quite simple and are present in many other steroids to varying degrees. Despite these effects, Dianabol remains a powerful and popular androgenic anabolic steroid.
Currently, Dianabol is mostly used only by bodybuilders and lifters, both professional and amateur, but for competitive sports, there are better steroid solutions. Frequently, Dbol is the first steroid for many amateur gym visitors. The reason for this is the popularity and affordability of the steroid. Professional bodybuilders use Methandienone mostly in combination with other steroids in bulking cycles. Another important trait of Methandrostenolone is the ability to positively interact with many other steroids.
For novices, Dianabol allows you to gain a tremendous amount of mass in only 6 weeks, and with the right dosage and nutrition, the numbers are often higher than 20 lbs. Dbol also increases strength, endurance, and recovery speed. The mass gained with Dbol contains water that will go away quickly after the cycle is done. However, you will still retain a decent amount of gained muscle.
Some athletes still use the steroid when they need to rapidly increase strength, but they have to control their diet and water retention if they don’t want to increase mass along with it. Also, Dbol is almost never used in cutting cycles due to heavy water retention.
Side effects of Dbol
Using Dianabol can potentially lead to many side effects. With the right dosage and length of the cycle, side effects can be manageable. Let’s consider the possible side effects by breaking them down into related groups:
The possibility of Androgenic side effects while using Dbol is not very high due to low steroid androgenicity. Androgenic side effects include: hair growth all over the body, acne, hair loss, and deepening of the voice. The Androgenic side effects of Dianabol will only affect people with a strong genetic predisposition, and can’t be reduced with 5-alpha reductase inhibitors like Finasteride (Propecia), which are often used to combat such side effects.
Estrogenic side effects of Dianabol are possible and include gynecomastia and water retention. Heavy water retention can also cause elevated blood pressure. These side effects can be combated with SERM’s (selective, estrogen receptor modulators) like Nolvadex or AIs (aromatase inhibitor) like Anastrozole. Anastrozole is more effective than Nolvadex in reducing estrogenic side effects, but it negatively affects cholesterol levels.
Cardiovascular side effects of Dbol are bound to cholesterol level. The steroid increases LDL levels (bad cholesterol) and reduces HDL levels (good cholesterol). The right drug dosage, healthy cholesterol levels before the cycle, and a cholesterol friendly lifestyle during the cycle, allows cholesterol to remain in the normal range during a Dianabol cycle. You have to keep in mind that use of Anastrozole will add an additional negative effect to the cholesterol level.
Hepatotoxic side effects of Methandrostenolone will definitely occur, like with all C17-alpha alkylated anabolic steroids. Liver enzyme values (AST and ALT) will definitely go up during the cycle, but with the right dosage and cycle length, the liver won’t be permanently damaged. Enzyme values will recover shortly after Dianabol use is discontinued. You should avoid any additional stress for the liver like alcohol and any hepatic medication. You shouldn’t start using another C17-alpha alkylated steroid for at least 2 months. If your liver was not in very good condition before the cycle, additional liver and kidney supplements can help, but not significantly.
Dianabol will suppress natural testosterone production during the cycle. When the cycle is over your body will start producing testosterone again, but it will take time to fully recover pre-cycle levels. During that time you’ll remain in a low testosterone level condition. This condition is not healthy and promotes muscle loss. To avoid this condition, you need to use post cycle therapy (PCT). PCT helps to recover your natural testosterone level fast. PCT should be composed based on the cycle length, quantity of steroids, and their dosages. Tamoxifen and Clomid are usually used for post cycle therapy after a Dbol cycle.
Dosages of Dianabol
Dbol doses vary depending on the goal and other steroids in the cycle. In my personal opinion, the minimum dosage should be 20 mg per day and the maximum dosage for non-professionals should be 50 mg per day, with a cycle length of 6-8 weeks. The most common dosage is 30 mg per day, which allows you to gain a significant amount of mass with minimum possible side effects. Dianabol has a half life of 4-6 hours, therefore the dosage should be divided into 3-4 times per day.
Experienced steroid users frequently use Dbol with other androgenic anabolic steroids in the cycle, and the drug interacts very well with many of them. One of the best combinations is Dianabol with Deca Durabolin. Dianabol isn’t recommended for use by women.
