Dronabol is also known as Dianabol or dbol (generic names: metandienone, methandrostenolone, and methandienone).
Created in 1957 as Dianabol, it was the first anabolic androgenic steroid that bodybuilders and athletes widely used.
Still, it is one of the most popular steroids.
You can find this steroid in tablet form and as an injection with other brands, but it is more commonly used as a tablet.
The main reason Dronabol is so popular is due to the massive gains people can get, but it can also come with serious side effects.
The FDA had initially approved this drug for the treatment of osteoporosis, but is no longer available or approved in the United States.
The generic version of Dronabol comes in many forms.
It can now be found in the UK with a prescription, and in other countries such as Mexico often without a prescription.
It is also manufactured in Asia in countries such as Thailand and many Eastern European countries.
The brand Dronabol DS is made by Bangkok Lab and Berich. The tablet dosages are in 5 mg and 10 mg. You can find bottles of 500 tablets with a pink label, or with 1000 tablets with a light blue label.
Don’t get it mixed up with Danabol DS, although the same active ingredient is used.
You can buy Dronabol for around $75 to $80 for 500 tablets through online retailers. Even though dbol is plentiful, you should be careful to not purchase counterfeit versions.
The packaging looks very similar to British Dispensary Anabol.
Dronabol Dosages & Cycles
Dronabol is often stacked with other injectable steroids like testosterone propionate, Deca Durabolin, Primobolan, and trenbolone acetate.
It shouldn’t be stacked with oral steroids like Anadrol Oxymetholone or Anavar Oxandrolone because it’s already too toxic on the liver.
It is most commonly used to start an off-season cycle for gaining mass. As the slower acting injectable steroids start to work, Dianabol can provide fast and noticeable gains.
Another way to use Dianabol is mid-cycle as a way to bust through a plateau of growth. It is able to restart this growth cycle and allow growth to continue.
Dronabol comes in 5mg and 10mg doses and for a typical cycle, a bodybuilder will take at least 15 mg on a daily basis.
One can try to go to 20mg to all the way up to 50mg, but an increase in dosage will likely mean an increase in side effects.
Finding the right dose that can enhance your training may take some experimentation, but the results of using Dronabol should be notable.
As you experiment on the right dosing, one thing to remember is the half-life of drugs like Dronabol, which is around 3 to 5 hours.
Splitting your doses can help keep the drug at peak levels in your bloodstream. On the other hand, taking your daily dose all at once can make your training time more potent.
Because of the androngenic nature of Dronabol, this steroid is more suitable for men than women.
Women can be more susceptible to virilization (e.g., acne) as a result, but can at times tolerate lower doses, such as 2.5mg to 5mg and can promote new muscle growth.
Cycles are usually 6 weeks at a time, with a 6 week break and post cycle therapy (PCT) at the end. The best way to take Dronabol is on an empty stomach.
You should also stack with an exogenous testosterone due to the testosterone suppression that occurs.
Dronabol can bring dramatic, rapid benefits in as little as a few weeks. One can gain as much as 20lbs in mass.
More mass can bring an increase in speed, power, and strength, as well as improved endurance and recovery.
Because of these kinds of fast results, dbol has been a favorite of athletes as well as bodybuilders.
One’s caloric intake can greatly impact how much one can gain while on Dronabol. If you take in enough calories, then you will be able to see the big results that you’re seeking.
Dronabol Side Effects
Although Dronabol brings a lot of impressive results, it can also cause a number of side effects:
Estrogenic side effects: Dbol can cause gynecomastia and water retention just as quickly as it can bring desired results. Water retention can also cause high blood pressure.
If you take anti-estrogens such as selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERMs) or aromatase inhibitors (AIs) this can help with the estrogenic effects. AIs can also cause higher levels of unhealthy cholesterol, but SERMs can help to increase levels of healthy cholesterol.
Androgenic side effects: Dronabol is not a strong androgenic steroid, but it can cause androgenic issues such as acne, increased hair loss for those who already have male-pattern baldness, and an increase in body hair growth.
Virilization in women can include symptoms such as deepening vocal chords, increased body hair growth, and clitoral enlargement.
Cardiovascular issues: An increase in unhealthy cholesterol (LDL) and a decrease in healthy cholesterol (HDL) can occur while on Dronabol.
This increase in LDL can cause heart disease through the build-up of arterial plaque. It can cause an increase in blood pressure due to an increase in water retention.
Testosterone issues: Natural testosterone is suppressed while on anabolic steroids, so you may develop low testosterone also known as Low T.
It may take time (several months) to recover from Low T so going on a post cycle therapy will help bring your body back into balance.
Liver toxicity: Although dbol is not the most toxic oral anabolic steroid, it is not the mildest either. As a C17 alpha alkylated oral anabolic steroid, it can cause liver damage.
Liver enzymes will increase while on it, but if it is limited to a 6 week cycle with a 6 week cycle of rest, then the chance of hepatotoxicity will be greatly reduced.
You should watch your alcohol usage and your usage of over the counter medications. It’s not as harsh as Anadrol Oxymetholone, but is still a very powerful drug.
When used carefully and for limited periods of time, brands of Dianabol like Anabol or Dronabol can provide substantial increases in muscle mass and strength, but must be used very cautiously.
