Dianabol is an effective steroid that helps to gain weight and strength. Similar to Testosterone and Anadrol 50, Dianabol (Dbol) 20 is a potent steroid, but also one which brings about noticeable side effects. Methandrostenolone (Dbol) is quite estogenic. Gynecomastia is likewise often a concern during treatment, and may present itself quite early into a cycle. At the same time water retention can become a pronounced problem. It causes notable loss of muscle definition as both subcutaneous water and fat build. Sensitive individuals may therefore want to keep the estrogen under control. By adding an anti-estrogen such as Nolvadex and/or Proviron. The stronger drug Arimidex would be a better choice. This can also be quite expensive in comparison to standard estrogen maintenance therapies. In addition, androgenic side effects are common with this substance. It may include bouts of oily skin, acne and body/facial hair growth. Being moderately androgenic, Dianabol is really only a popular steroid with men. When used by women, strong virilization symptons are of course a possible result. Some do however experiment with it, and find low doses (5mg) of this steroid extremely powerful for new muscle growth. Whenever administered, Dianabol will produce exceptional mass and strength gains. As a result it is a popular choice for bulking purposes. Dosage: A daily dosage 20-50mg is enough to give anybody dramatic results. Some do venture much higher in dosage, but this practice usually leads to a more profound incidence of side effects. Deca-Durabolin mixes very well when run together. Together one can expect an exceptional muscle and strength gains, with side effects not much worse than one would expect from Dianabol alone. Testosterone can be used to good effect when all out mass is the goal. With the similarly high estrogenic/androgenic properties of this androgen, side effects may be extreme with such a combination however. Gains would be great as well, which usually makes such an endeavor worthwhile to the user.
