Methandrostenolone, commonly known as Dianabol, was first produced and marketed by Ciba-Geigy in 1960. It was promoted as being highly anabolic, androgenic, with little progestational activity. Dianabol was also reported to enhance feelings of well-being. Dianabol was indicated for the treatment of disorders requiring increased protein synthesis and osteoporosis. There are many different pharmaceutical and generic varieties including popular Anabol and Naposim.

Dianabol is mostly used to cure problems like most anabolic steroids available in the market, with good results in little time. It is used to enhance anaerobic glycolysis, to produce sufficient amounts of lactic acid in the body. Lactic acid is a key component for the consumption of glycogen by muscles to produce energy, although this energy is only available for a short time. Lactic acid is also good for the disposal of dietary carbohydrates in order to reduce fat in the body. It also increases the appetite in patients who are very weak. It has also been recorded that in cases of osteoporosis, it is very effective with dosages of 5mg per day for 9 months. It is better than any calcium supplementation, as it not only aids calcium regulation but also helps muscles to bind with bone to give complete strength. It not only regulates calcium but also potassium in the body, which in turn is very useful for nerve induction and muscle health. One very interesting fact recently observed in laryngeal cancer patients is that Dianabol increases the sensitivity of laryngeals cells to radioactivity, which makes it a good drug to give these patients, to promote rapid results during radioactive therapy.

It has been found during research that high doses of Methandrostenolone can cause many liver problems, for example, hepatitis, jaundice, liver cancer, and liver tumors. There are also many other side effects associated with high doses, and it is recommended to take low doses to avoid these health problems. Anti Estrogen drugs can also be added to this anabolic in order to avoid further estrogenic side effects. It is also reported that acne, hair growth, deepening of the voice and many sex-related problems also become worse with its use.

Therapeutic dose: 4 mg orally daily (pain relief in osteoporosis), 6 weeks on, 4 weeks off
