Dianabol (methandrostenolone, methandienone) has been one of the most important anabolic steroids in bodybuilding ever since its introduction in 1958. Also commonly known as “Dbol”, this oral compound is best used for steroid cycles in combination with injectable steroids, but can be of value used alone as well.
Stacking Dianabol with Injectable Steroids
The effect of most injectable anabolic steroids is greatly enhanced by addition of Dianabol. The improvement is greater than from simply increasing the amount of injectable by the same amount. A classic and dramatic example is trenbolone. Though the total amount of steroid used is the same in all three cases, 50 mg/day each of trenbolone acetate stacked with 50 mg/day Dianabol provides a far more effective steroid cycle than either 100 mg/day of trenbolone acetate alone or 100 mg/day Dbol alone. The side effect profile is superior as well. In other words, the compounds act synergistically: the whole is greater than the parts. This is likely due to different mechanisms of action.
Dianabol and Testosterone Stack
All injectables stack well with Dianabol, with partial exception that at higher doses of testosterone Dianabol becomes less useful and eventually entirely unnecessary. As examples, at 500 mg/week of testosterone use large improvement in a steroid cycle can be expected from adding Dianabol, but at 1000 mg/week only a moderate improvement is likely. At 2000 mg/week, possibly no noticeable further increase in effect will be seen except with individuals who have already reached a plateau at that amount of testosterone-only usage. For most this will not be the case.
The dosage range for Dianabol is typically 20-50 mg/day. Unlike most injectables, little further benefit occurs from going beyond this milligram amount. If wishing more effect, the answer is instead to add another anabolic steroid. My preference is for dosing to be 3-5 times per day, but some prefer to use it only once per day.
Typically, this usage is combined with about 500-1000 mg/week total of injected anabolic steroids.
Injectable DBOL offers immediate (100%) bioavailability to the body, active within a few minutes after administration, the direct injection of DBOL is far more potent than the oral version (with zero toxicity to the liver due to no oral first pass) and requires a greatly reduced dosage – 0.1-0.25ml injected is all that needed to match an oral dose of 50mg.
