Methandienone (Naposim) is the best known and most used oral anabolic steroid. It was created in 1956 by Dr. John Ziegler was developed on behalf of Ciba-Geigy as an alternative to injectable testosterone and launched in 1960 by this company under the name Dianabol on the market. In no time at all, “D-bol” conquered the sports world and for decades was known as the “Breakfast of Champions”.
By the end of the 70s, Ciba had patent rights. Thereafter, many other companies worldwide acquired the right to distribute generic drugs, so that Ciba ceased production in 1982 completely.
To date, methandienone (in the US, the active ingredient methandrostenolone) is offered in many countries as a generic. The most widespread are the many Thai products (Anabol Tablets, Metabolone, Danabol, Dronabol, Melic, Methandone etc.) but also from Russia, Bulgaria and India d-bol tablets come to us on the black market.
In the past, D-bol was also available as an injectable drug, but only in veterinary medicine (exception: Trinergic from India). It was water-dissolved methandienone at a concentration of 25 mg / ml. In addition to the need for daily injections, there have been repeated reports that the injectable variant is not supposed to work as well as the oral version. Today, D-bol Inject is only available as a “black” underground laboratory product.
Effect and application:
Dianabol is an exceptionally effective and strong drug. Almost everyone who uses it has a very strong increase in mass and strength and, in most cases, comparatively low dosages (15-30 mg).
A reasonable dose of methandienone taking into account the body weight and experience of the athlete is between 20 and 50 mg per day. A high dose is 50 mg and more, although athletes who take up to 100 mg are not uncommon. Whether these higher dosages can bring more may be doubted. Even experienced super heavyweights can handle 50-60 mg Dianabol in most cases. A smaller athlete, who weighs perhaps 75 kg and does not have much experience with anabolic steroids, certainly needs no more than 20 – 30 mg to achieve outstanding results.
The tablets are best taken 2-3 times a day with meals to prevent possible stomach problems. The normal application consists in bodybuilding in mass building (off-season) or in powerlifting in competition preparation.
D-bol is often used by steroid beginners as a single agent, which is actually not objectionable in this group of people. Experienced (competitive) athletes always use D-bol in the stack with an injectable Roid. In the past, nandrolone (Deca Durabolin) was the drug of choice, but today testosterone is preferred. Thus, the user achieves a very strong increase in mass and strength, which, however, is accompanied in many cases with a very pronounced water storage.
Women should not be advised to use Dianabol, as androgenic side effects (deepening of the voice, hair loss, enlargement of the clitoris, masculinization of the facial features) can not be avoided in the long term. If so, then women take 10-15 mg with remarkable results.
Naposim is a 17-alpha-alkylated anabolic and therefore potentially hepatotoxic. In the lower dose ranges (20 – 30 mg), however, there are rarely any problems. Nevertheless, it is reasonable to restrict the use of this drug to 5-8 weeks with a reasonable break afterwards. In general, the injectable roids are taken continuously for several months and Dianabol stabs only sporadically.
Like all steroids, methandienone also suppresses the pituitary-gonadal axis, that means the body’s own production of testosterone is reduced or completely suppressed, which after discontinuation drugs such as Clomid u.U. necessary.
Dianabol does not aromatize as much as testosterone, but it is partially converted to 17 alpha methyl estradiol, which is a more biologically active form of estrogen. This can lead to gynecomastia, water retention and female fat deposits in sensitive individuals.
