Methandienone is an anabolic steroid banned from use by FDA under controlled substances act. Dianabol has been very popular in bodybuilders until its ban to increase strength and volume of their muscles. Dianabol acts strongly on androgen receptors and exerts its effects by protein synthesis and glycogen breakdown to increase muscle mass in short space of time. Dianabol produces estrogen as end product so water retention is also one of the contributors towards weight gain and increased volume. Dianabol effective dose is15-50 mg/day in men and its active life is 6-8 hours. Dianabol is excreted through kidneys and detection time in urine is 5-6 weeks. Until the ban Dianabol has been used as tonic by bodybuilders. Probably, Dianabol is effective in treatment of senile postmenopausal osteoporosis. Dianabol was also recommended in those individuals who are suffering from condition called pituitary deficient dwarfism. Dianabol was also used in those individuals who have weakened bones and always complain for exhaustion after small running and prolong walking. Still, Dianabol is prepared in large quantity in those countries where drugs regulations are weak and is used in human as well as in veterinary patients of the conditions described above.
For most, a Dbol cycle will only represent a small portion of a larger total cycle. For example, the most common point of use is to kick off a new off-season phase of growth. In this case, you would supplement with Dianabol for approximately six weeks along with your chosen steroids mentioned from the base section above. Once this six week period is over, your total cycle would continue without Dbol, but the base items would continue. This is the most common and popular Dbol cycle of all, but it's not the only one that's beneficial. Often forgotten, Dianabol is one of the best mid-cycle steroids we have; we're talking about mid-cycle use that aids us in breaking through a plateau; specifically, plateau busting. When you reach a sticking point, and you will, you'll need to provide some type of change to your diet, training or supplementation plan, maybe all three, and Dbol can be the change you need. It should be noted; if you used this steroid as a kick starter, you will need at minimum six weeks before you implement it again, and this means plateau busting is normally only going to be undertaken by hardcore advanced steroid users who are running extremely long and extensive cycles.
As we discussed above, Dianabol carries a strong aromatizing nature, and is a C17-aa anabolic steroid; as such, its side-effects will revolve around these factors. As an aromatizing steroid, this means there can be a testosterone to estrogen conversion, and if estrogen levels go to high it can lead to some complications. When estrogen levels increase, the hormone can attach to the receptors and cause gynecomastia (male-breast enlargement) and it can also promote excess water retention and high blood pressure; Dbol is notorious for promoting high blood pressure. Needless to say, if you already suffer from high blood pressure you should not touch this steroid, but if it's healthy you'll need to ensure it stays this way. For this reason, in-order to combat and avoid these estrogenic side-effects of Dbol, the use of an Aromatase Inhibitor (AI) is often advised. It shouldn't be too hard to see how this can help; after all, an AI inhibits aromatase, but it goes a step further by reducing the body's total estrogen levels. Of course, and this cannot be overstressed, you must keep your doses at a responsible level; most will need at least 20mg per day for any anabolic promotion, with a maximum dosing of 50mg per day. It should be noted; if you've never used this steroid before, you should not start with a high end dose; start low and see how you respond.
