Anabolic and androgenic steroid Methandrostenolone was produced in the early sixties of the twentieth century. This drug is marketed under various brand names: Danabol, Nerobol, Dianabol, Methandienone, Nanosim and DBOL.

Initially, it was used as a stimulating recovery process, raising tone, treating burns funds. Athletes today use methandrostenolone to increase muscle mass. Along with this effect, the drug, like other steroids, has other beneficial qualities.

Steroid Profile of Methandrostenolone

Methandienone exhibits the following steroid profile indicators:

  • 200% anabolic and 50% androgenic activity from testosterone;
  • low ability to flavor;
  • moderate effect on the liver;
  • exposure duration up to eight hours;
  • detection on a doping test up to three months.

Available in the form of tablets and injections.

Effectiveness of Methandienone

The drug contributes to:

  • A pronounced increase in muscle mass due to stimulation of protein production. A significant part of the weight gain is water retained in the body. If you do not take the appropriate pharmacological preparations, the phenomenon of rollback most often occurs.
  • Increased Strength Indicators.
  • Fat burning effect against the background of proper nutrition and methane intake.
  • Strengthen joint strength.

Against the background of methane consumption, a sense of appetite intensifies.

Solo Course

You should refrain from taking the course of Methandrostenolone until adulthood, for people with high blood pressure, diseases of the cardiovascular system, liver, prostatic hypertrophy and other pathological conditions in which the drug is contraindicated.

A safe daily dosage of steroid in tablet form is 30 milligrams. This amount of the drug is divided equally by 2-3 times and is taken after a meal. This pattern of use allows you to avoid sudden changes in the hormonal background. Injections suggest an increase in dosage, however, the duration of the course can not exceed one and a half months (6 weeks).

To reduce estrogen exposure, already on the eighth day of the course, aromatase inhibitors begin to use, which can get rid of puffiness and prevent fluid retention. Post-course therapy (PCT) begins on the third or fourth day after withdrawal of drugs.

Over the next two to four weeks, Tamoxifen is usually taken. The dosage is about 20 milligrams and gradually decreases. It is possible to normalize the synthesis of endogenous testosterone with the use of boosters.

The athlete must constantly keep under control his own physiological indicators, timely make the necessary adjustments.

Combined courses

The course of methandrostenolone solo demonstrates many negative aspects, which makes the combined intake a more common option. Combining the drug with AAC complexes is not recommended, since the latter have a bad effect on the liver. Methandrostenolone must be combined with testosterone-based products. Best suited: Testosterone, Sustanon, Nandrolone, Trenbolone, Primobolan.

To increase muscle volume, some sources advise using intermittent and interval non-traditional intake regimens. The first, as it is mistakenly believed, reduces the negative impact on the production of one's own male hormone, and the second eliminates addiction and reduces the harmful effects on the liver. In reality, none of the schemes works, and the drug itself is not suitable for the “bridge” between courses.

Side effects

To avoid any negative effects when taking Methandrostenolone, you must strictly follow the instructions. You can not start the course without determining the dosage and duration of administration.

Gynecomastia is the most common side effect of taking methane in tablets and injections. It occurs as a result of the conversion of the active substance of the drug into estrogens. The use of aromatase inhibitors allows this to be avoided. The toxic effect on the liver exerted by the presence in the 17-alpha position of the methyl group is reduced due to choleretic drugs, for example, Flamin and Tykveol.

Against the background of taking Metandienone, the cells begin to actively retain the fluid, which leaves after the course is canceled. This becomes the cause of the rollback that aromatase inhibitors prevent.


Bodybuilders taking the drug are most unhappy with the pullback phenomenon. As the athletes say, he manifests himself after the course quite strongly. Not everyone succeeds in minimizing the loss of gained mass.

Some athletes get a truly high-quality increase in volume, while others, on the contrary, are too watery. It depends on the quality of methandienone. Best of all, judging by the reviews, European and American brands have proven themselves, Balkan and domestic are less popular.

Being a classic steroid that does not lose its relevance to this day, Methandrostenolone perfectly demonstrates itself in combined courses, and not solo.
