Dianabol (dbol) is one of the more popular and well-known orals one can take. But there are often many questions surrounding how to use dbol, when to take dianabol, among other things. I will try to address these concerns and lay out possible solutions the best I can.
Liver toxicity is a concern when taking orals, but with proper protection and dosing, it is unlikely any harmful situations should arise. Common doses range from 20mg everyday (ED) to 50mg+ ED. The higher the dose generally translates to shorter duration of use. Those looking for benefits in the 20mg ED range can feel safe running dbol for around 8 weeks. This is of course a guideline and proper bloodwork should be taken to minimize risk. Those looking for more pronounced benefits, namely strength and pure size, can get away with running around 40mg ED for 3-6 weeks.
Timing can play a large role with this drug due to its 6-8 hour half-life. Those looking for mainly strength increases would benefit from taking the majority of their daily dose pre-workout; usually an hour or so before hand. This will not translate soley to strength gains, but moreso than spreading the dose throughout the day. That leads me to the next way of dosing dianabol. Other users may chose to take 5-10mg every few hours to keep a steady stream of the drug in their system; thus leading to being more anabolic. However, there can be a compromise. Users can also benefit from taking a large portion of their daily dose preworkout and the rest a few hours postworkout. The only disadvantage to this route is that there is not as steady a stream of the drug in your system throughout the day. However, you get the best of both worlds by getting a great workout and being very anabolic postworkout. This will aid in muscle recovery when it is most important, postworkout, and when you should be getting in the majority of your high protein meals.
First and foremost, bloodwork should be kept track of to make sure blood levels remain in a reasonable and healthy range. Although liver toxicity is generally over-emphasized, it still is an issue that needs to be addressed. Therefore, a liver support such as NAC is a great addition to any cycle containing a liver-harsh drug. High amounts of water (ie 2+ gallons) should be consumed daily with Dianabol and other orals. Sodium intake should also be watched more carefully due to the fact that it increases water retention and bloat. That is not something you want alot of while taking dbol. Now what about alcohol? It should be avoided at all costs and that's all I'll say on the subject. If you're serious about this then you should already have a good answer.
What To Expect:
One should feel the effects (namely in the gym) within the first week of beginning the regimen. Increased blood pressure and intensity are common. Rapid weight gain within the first two weeks are also very common, but don't be fooled. Most of this gain is water based. The "real" gains will begin to show usually after the first few weeks once your body is able to synthesize more protein more effectively, therefore increasing lean body mass. As noted earlier, strength increase is a major side effect of this drug. Therefore, one should pay extra attention on the new weight they are lifting in order to minimize risk of injury of the tendons and ligaments. This is because the tendons and ligaments do not grow in conjunction with the muscles, so as your muscles continue to grow, you are asking more and more from the same tendons and ligaments.
Since Dianabol only cycles are generally a bad idea, it is assumed you are using test as a base for this cycle. Running test for a longer duration than the dbol is usually a good idea as your body is still very anabolic and thus, the ability to retain new muscle is increased. This is just a general rule of thumb and does not equate to holding onto any portion of your gains as there are many factors involved. Another factor, and probably the biggest factor, is diet. Diet during your dbol use and after will be the biggest determining factor on what you gain and what you hold on to. For the most part, expect to lose ~5 or so pounds once the dbol is out of your system. This number will usually be around the same to as much weight (bloat and water) that you initially put on. Your post-dbol diet should not differ too much than when you were taking dbol, but increasing calories and protein slightly is usually a good idea. You will need to "eat at your new weight." If you were originally 200lbs and now you're 215lbs, you need to eat like a 215 pounder to STAY at 215lbs. The inverse is also true.
All in all, Dianabol is a great compound and should meet every one of your expectations, but it isn't perfect and considerations need to be taken based on your goals and YOU. Therefore, in order for you to get the most from it, you need to understand what is going on and what you need to do to maximize your results. Hopefully this piece has helped you to do that and has answered any other questions and concerns someone new to dbol may have.
lol... Dbol Bump 2
I made a Dbol/test iso mix.
I like it well
Dbol in oil form slows down the dbol and takes longer to get into your system.
and only goie threw the liver once from the info i was given.
They say the process of injectable takes like 24 hrs to get into your system.
The way my body seems to react the info seems true.
after 3 days i noticed that my urine was not so dark and after 1 week my urine seems normal.
Anyone else ever do injections over oral.
100mg dbol/100mg iso/50mg prop eod my incline bench went to 305lbs from 275 fairly easy for 2 reps.
Im back in action boys!
and thats with a torn tendon on my elbow i go for surgery to fix it.
I can do no curls just push motion sucks.
Good do people
Very good article
I much rather take 10 or 20mg dianabol daily for a longer cycle duration than take 50mg daily for a couple weeks, at least i think i would prefer that lol, im not a fan of dianabol, and have run the 50mg daily course for 2 weeks during a testosterone only cycle, well it was omnadren cycle, anyhow, i think i would prefer the small dosages of dbol over many weeks than the shorter one
Okey, guys, this is a really nice article, without any doubt. It is informative and based on facts. Alright that’s great, but I would like to share with you guys with one more. I think it will be helpful for you - https:111111111111111111111.It has become the real reveal for me, I’ve found out much needful and important information. Hope, you wouldn’t mind.
Dbols my shit. I love it because it's the only steroid that actually makes me feel good. I don't know about you guys but I can feel it working from the very FIRST dose. Not necessarily in terms of strength or size, lol, but I can literally feel my blood pressure pick up and I get a little anxious then I get super energetic and motivated and in a really good mood. It's very noticeable. Since then, I've used Halotestin, Var, Anadrol, Superdrol, but I always seem to go back to good old dianabol. Superdrol Imo is the strongest of them all, but it was almost impossible for me to run because it fucked my blood pressure up too badly, too quickly.
I've used 50-60mg's of dbol up to six weeks at a time. No ill effects whatsoever. I ran 100mg's a day for two weeks leading up to a meet, and 200mg's for the day of the meet.
All in all, I really don't think anymore then 30-40mg's is needed for most people tops. However, 50mg seems to be my personal fav. dose.
Also, like to stack 50mg's of Dbol with 50mg's of Anadrol. Sweet combo. It's a way to get benefits from both, without having to run a really high dosage of either one.
I have always seen articles like this say 20mg is an acceptable dose yet I have never know anyone to run just 20mg.
Not sure why that came to mind lol, i guess i just think most people are full of shit when they say they do this or that, or eat this many calories daily lol, the saddest part is human beings know what to do, right from wrong, yet still dont do it!

Good to read! Thanks for sharing and thanks for bump. lol
I've never tried DBOL, I might try it sometime in the future.
With my trt I do bloodwork every 6 months. I have taken dbol for 6 weeks at 10-20 and stopped 4 weeks before labs. My liver enzymes always within range. My insurance covers my trt except for deductible for labs of $400 a year. Some people handle stuff better than others. I like to know now that I am clear with good labs before I blast a cycle. Years ago was on winny had to do labs for life insurance for a business loan. Liver enzymes were so high they checked me for liver disease. I take nac, Ala, and milk thistle. I figure it doesn't hurt taking the milk thistle and doesn't affect my receptors. I have done same thing with superdrol and with low dose enzymes good 4 weeks later cholesterol too. For whatever it's worth it take fish oil and garlic everyday with b-complex plus multi vitamin.
