The common dose for Dianabol is 30-50mg each day , with a cycle that would usually last between 4 and 6 weeks . 30-40mg would be an effective dose for a person that is new to Dianabol, resulting in great gains in muscle mass and strength, whilst restricting possible side effects. More experience users may wish to take a slightly higher dosage, although like most other compounds, there is a dosage level where the muscle and strength gains plateau off and the side effects heighten, resulting in a point in which it is not worth increasing the dosage. Most experienced users will rarely take a dosage over 70-80mg per day.
Although the debate rages on (and probably always will) there is a controversial solution for getting the best of both worlds, and that involves using both compounds together in a cycle. Although both of these oral compounds are liver toxic, you can use them safely at moderate doses during short cycles and alongside a liver protectant supplement. The most common Anadrol Dianabol stack involves a 4-6 week cycle during which you take 25mg of Dianabol and 50mg of Anadrol per day. The synergistic effects are quite noticeable at these doses. In short, using the two together counteracts many Anadrol side effects due to the low doses of each, including appetite loss, aches and pains, and even fatigue.
Dianabol is a relatively strong estrogenic anabolic steroid due to the moderate level of aromatase activity it carries. While its aromatase activity is only moderate, this conversion actually leads Methandrostenolone to be converted to methylestradiol rather than estradiol, which is far more powerful than estradiol. This can make side effects like gynecomastia and water retention very possible with this steroid; in fact, they can appear seemingly overnight. Heavy water retention can also promote high blood pressure, which Dianabol is notorious for causing. Such effects can be controlled, and when it comes to high blood pressure this is something you’ll need to put some effort into ensuring does not become a problem.
In order to combat the estrogenic side effects of Dianabol, anti- estrogens are commonly recommended when supplementing with this steroid. You have two choices in anti-estrogens, Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulators (SERM’s) like Nolvadex ( Tamoxifen Citrate ) and Aromatase Inhibitors (AI’s) like Femara ( Letrozole ). SERM’s can be enough for some men and should be your first choice if they can get the job done. However, AI’s will be far more effective as they will directly inhibit aromatization and reduce serum estrogen levels. Unfortunately, AI’s can negatively affect cholesterol, as can Dianabol, and when conjoined this can prove potentially problematic. If an AI is used cholesterol management will be a priority, and it will be possible. However, SERM’s, while not always as effective will actually promote healthier cholesterol levels due to their estrogenic like activity in the liver.
