Description and a brief history of appearance
The agent is an anabolic steroid, taken orally. Made in Moldova by the manufacturer Balkan Pharmaceuticals.
Muscle mass increases against the background of protein stimulation, amino acid synthesis, fat burning effect, enhanced anabolism. The athlete becomes resilient, his body recovers faster after intense training.
In 1956, this drug was called Dianabol, it consisted of methandrostenolone. In the 1960s, the remedy was used by athletes who were involved in athletics.
In big sports, John Ziegler suggested using it. The drug maintained its leading position in bodybuilding until the end of the 70s of the last century.

How does it affect the body?
The tool is popular among bodybuilders, athletes because it has the following advantages:
- Quick set of muscle mass when combining anabolic steroids with other steroids. Thanks to the androgenic and anabolic effect, the athlete will gain 10 to 15 kg of muscle.
- Protein synthesis is stimulated, since “methane” acts with globulin, with the help of which sex hormones bind to different cell receptors.
- Appetite will increase, so myofibers will grow rapidly and the desired muscle relief will be formed.
- Strength will increase. When taking steroids for 1.5 months, the working weights in core exercises will increase by 50 or 90%.
- Glycogen quickly recovers after a hard workout.
- The level of cortisol in the blood will decrease. The anticatabolic effect will keep myofibers from being destroyed under stress.
- The protein breakdown process will stop.
- Bones will be strengthened, joint pains will be eliminated as fluid is retained in the joints. The body retains phosphorus, nitrogen, sulfur, sodium, calcium which is deposited in the bones.
- Sports performance will improve.
- The athlete will increase self-esteem, improve mood, as dopamine levels increase.
Pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics
With the penetration of medicinal components into the cell nucleus, the cellular genetic apparatus is activated. The production of RNA, DNA, structural protein compounds increases, enzymatic chains are activated, responsible for tissue respiration, which improves it. Metabolic processes are enhanced, in which the energy formed during the oxidation of nutritional compounds is accumulated in cellular mitochondria (oxidative phosphorylation), which leads to the synthesis of ATP, high-energy molecules.
The hematopoietic effect is associated with an increased synthesis of erythropoietin. Low androgen activity contributes to the manifestation of secondary male sexual characteristics.
Pharmacodynamics is characterized by rapid and complete absorption in the digestive system. The amount of the drug component that reaches the site of its action is low. In the blood, the binding to globulins reaches 90%. Biological transformation of the drug occurs in the liver, inactive metabolites are formed, the excretion of the drug components occurs through the kidneys. The duration of the exposure is 14 hours.
The anabolic comes in the form of 10 mg and 50 mg pink square tablets. The shaped cell pack contains 10 or 20 tablets. The packs, the vials can contain 5 or 15, 25 or 50, 100 tablets of 10 mg.
The active ingredient, the compromised methandienone, has a moderate androgenic effect. Additional components are magnesium stearate, dye, a mixture of lactose with povidone, crospovidone.
Benefit and harm
The effectiveness of an anabolic agent in beginners or experienced athletes will manifest itself quickly. After 7 days, the athlete’s vitality will increase, the muscles will become more voluminous, the power parameters and weight will increase. The person will feel cheerful, he will not be burdened with everyday affairs, the quality of life will improve.
If the steroid doses are not followed, the man will be temporarily sterile, his testicles will atrophy and female sexual characteristics will appear. Such manifestations are observed with prolonged use of anabolic steroids and a significantly overestimated single dosage. When using Danabol, the body “thinks” that the volume of the steroids is increased, so the synthesis of testosterone is suspended.

Possible side effects
If you use this steroid immensely, unwanted side effects will occur.
The glandular and fatty tissue of the mammary glands (gynecomastia) is hypertrophic. The manifestation of such a side effect indicates the transformation of part of the anabolic into estrogen. To prevent such an effect, it is necessary to be treated with Nolvadex, Clomid.
The toxic effect on the liver is associated with the methyl group in the α-17 position, due to which the drug is not destroyed in the liver. To prevent this effect, hepatoprotective agents are used after the use of a steroid, PCT. The best option for unloading the liver is a combination of methane tablets with an injectable steroid, for example, nandrolone is used.
Fluid retention will manifest as an increase in muscle mass. When the course of taking the steroid is completed, the liquid will merge, the weight will decrease. This rollback phenomenon is reduced by antiestrogens, competent post-cycle therapy.

During the first 7 days, the athlete should take 20 mg of the drug every day. Starting next week, take 3 tablets a day, which is 30 mg.

This effect will last a long time. Proviron is taken during the course of one tablet, starting from 2 to 4 weeks.
It is forbidden to take Dianabol for more than 10 weeks, otherwise the body will get used to this drug, the muscle reaction to the active substance will not manifest itself, liver dysfunction will occur, and muscle mass will not grow.
Experienced bodybuilders recommend combining Danabol with Stanozolol for beginners. Such an initial course will allow beginners to gain 6-10 kg of muscle mass, excess fat will not settle in them, water in the body will not linger.
The first week of Danabol with Stanozolol is taken at 20 mg per day. From 2 to 5 weeks, both drugs are taken at 30 mg.
There is another scheme – Danabol + Stanozolol + Tamoxifen. It has its pros and cons. Its disadvantages are overloading the liver, but the athletes are satisfied with the resulting effect. These funds are withdrawn for 25 days, so a course of rehabilitation therapy is required.
- From day 1 to day 25, first, take Danabol 4 tablets a day every 4 hours.
- From 26 to 50 days, Stanozolol is taken 4 tablets per day every 4 hours.
- From 51 to 53 days, post cycle therapy with Tamoxifen is performed, one tablet in the morning and one tablet in the evening.
- From 54 to 87 days, take Tamoxifen 1 tablet in the morning.

For 6 weeks, Stanozolol 40 mg is used. To reduce the synthesis of the hormone prolactin, which affects the sexual sphere, it is necessary to drink 0.25 mg of cabergoline every four days after a two-week course.
“Methane” can be combined with Sustanon, Anadrol, Turinabol.
Special diet food tones the body provides it with energy. It is recommended to eat high-calorie foods that are high in protein. The use of food additives, creatine, essential amino acids is acceptable.

In the last week, the dose should be slightly reduced, so the drug should be completely canceled.
