Dianabol is also capable of interaction with the enzyme aromatase resulting in the possibility of estrogenic side effects. Gynecomastia may become apparent even very early into a cycle, so the user must always ensure that they have the necessary drugs to treat the condition at the earliest possible opportunity. A Selective Estrogen Modulator (SERM) such as Tamoxifen (brand name Nolvadex) is usually used in these instances, perhaps with the addition of an anti-estrogen such as Proviron or Arimidex which will help hinder further estrogenic conversion. (For more information see the article Combating Oestrogens & Progesterone ).
Methandrostenolone (Dianabol) is the most popular oral steroid currently on the market. In the mid 1950’s during the Olympics, many of the events were being won by the Soviet Union. A doctor by the name of Dr. John Ziegler found out that the Soviet Union team was using Testosterone to enhance their performance. When Dr. Ziegler got back to the United States he immediately started administering Testosterone to a few of his athletes. A few weeks passed and the athletes were not seeing or feeling any effects from the Testosterone. Dr. Ziegler approached CIBA Pharmaceuticals with an idea to create an oral Anabolic Steroid which would be effective and fast acting. This led to the creation of Dianabol.
