10mg (500 pills)
That is probably because of the simple fact that it’s both simple to use and exceptionally powerful. From the U.S. Dianabol production had meteoric history, exploding for quite a while, then quickly dropping out of sight. Many were nervous in the late 80’s when the last of their U.S. generics were removed from pharmacy shelves, the medical community finding no legitimate use of the medication anymore. However, the fact that Dianabol has been off the U.S. marketplace for more than ten decades now hasn’t cut its popularity. So long as there are countries manufacturing this steroid, it will most likely remain so.
Similar to testosterone and Anadrol 50, Methandienone (other called Dianabol) is a potent steroid, but also one which brings about noticeable side effects. Gynecomastia is often a concern during treatment, and might present itself quite early into a cycle (particularly when higher doses are used). At precisely the exact same time water retention can become a pronounced problem, causing a notable loss of muscle definition as both subcutaneous water and fat build. Sensitive individuals may therefore wish to keep the estrogen under control with the inclusion of an anti-estrogen like Nolvadex or Proviron. The more powerful medication Arimidex, Femara, or Aromasin (antiaromatase) would be a much better alternative if available.
Additionally, androgenic side effects are common with this substance, and might include bouts of oily skin, acne and body/facial hair development. Aggression may also be increased with a potent steroid like this, therefore it’d be advisable to not let your disposition change for the worse during a cycle. With Dianabol there’s also the possibility of aggravating a male pattern baldness condition. Sensitive individuals may therefore want to avoid this drug and opt for a milder anabolic such as Deca-Durabolin. While Dianabol does convert to a more potent steroid via interaction with the 5-alpha reductase anzyme (the exact same enzyme responsible for converting testosterone to dihydrotestosterone), it has extremely little affinity to do so in the human body. Thus the usage of Proscar/Propecia would serve no actual function.
Being moderately androgenic, Methandienone is actually only a popular steroid with men. When used by women, strong virilization symptoms are of course a possible outcome. Whenever accepted, Methandienone (dianabol) will produce exceptional mass and strength gains. It’s efficacy is frequently compared to other strong steroids like testosterone and Anadrol 50, and it is also a popular selection for bulking purposes. A daily dose of 20-40mg is enough to give almost anybody dramatic results. Some do venture much higher in dosage, but this practice usually results in a more profound incidence of side effects. Additionally, it combines nicely with a range of different compounds. It’s noted to mix particularly well with the mild anabolic Deca-Durabolin. Together one can expect an exceptional muscle and strength gains, with side effects not much worse than you would expect from Dianabol alone. With the similarly large estrogenic/androgenic properties of this androgen, side effects may be extreme with such a combination however. As mentioned earlier, ancillary drugs can be added to decrease the side effects associated with this type of cycle.
To be able to withstand oral administration, this compound is c17 alpha alkylated. We know that this alteration protects the drug from being deactivation by the liver (allowing nearly all the drug entry into the bloodstream), but it may also be toxic to this organ. Prolonged exposure to c17 alpha alkylated substances can lead to actual damage, possibly even the development of certain types of cancer. To be safe one may want to see the doctor a few times during each cycle to keep an eye on their liver enzyme values. Jaundice (bile duct obstruction) is usually the first visible indication of liver trouble, and must be cared for. This condition produces an unusual yellowing of the skin, since the body has trouble processing bilirubin. Along with skin, the whites of their eyes may also yellow, a clear indication of trouble. Should this occur the drug ought to be stopped immediately and a doctor visited. This is generally a point where further, permanent damage may be averted.
It’s also interesting to remember that methandienone is structurally identical to boldenone (EQ), but that it includes the extra c17 alpha alkyl group discussed above. This simple fact makes clear the impact of altering a steroid in such ways, as both of these compounds seem to act very differently in your human body. The main dissimilarity appears to lie in the tendency for estrogenic side effects, which appears to be far more pronounced with Dianabol. Equipoise is proven to be quite mild in this manner, and users therefore commonly take this drug with no requirement of an anti-estrogen. The dilemma is that methanmdienone converts to l7alpha methylestradiol, a more biologically active form of estrogen than regular estradiol. But Dianabol also seems to be more powerful concerning muscle mass compared to boldenone, supporting the notion that estrogen does play a significant role in anabolism. In reality boldenone and methandienone differ so much in their potencies as anabolics that the two are rarely though of as related. Because of this, the use of Dianabol is typically restricted to bulking phases of training while Equipoise is considered an superb cutting or lean-mass building steroid.
It follows that a single daily dosage schedule will produce a varying blood level, with ups and downs every day. The user also has a choice, to either split up the tablets during the day or to take them all at once. The typical recommendation is to divide them and try to regulate the concentration in your blood. This however, will produce a lower peak blood level than if the tablets were taken all at one time, so there might be a trade off with this choice. The steroid researcher Bill Roberts also points out that a single-episode dosing schedule should have a dramatic effect on the hypothalamic-pituitary-testicular axis, because there’s a sufficient period each day where steroid hormone levels aren’t extremely exaggerated. Maybe this is the better choice. Because we know the blood concentration will peak about 1.5 to 3 hours after administration, we may further wonder the best time to take our pills. It appears logical that taking the pills earlier in the day, preferably some time before training, would be ideal. This could allow a substantial number of daytime hours for an androgen rich metabolism to heighten the uptake of nutrients, especially the crucial hours following training.
