Considered by many to be the first “anabolic steroid” (since methandienone is a testosterone derivate testosterone pre-dates methandienone obviously) methandienone was developed in the 1960s as an athletic aid for increasing muscular size and strength.

An American doctor named John Ziegler synthesized dianabol as an answer to Soviet bloc athletes using testosterone for performance enhancement.

In creating dianabol, Ziegler was hoping to provide a compound with all the strength building attributes of testosterone with one of the side effects.

Even though in practice, methandienone is neither as powerful as testosterone or completely side effect free, Ziegler’s early ambition gave the world a very powerful and useful anabolic agent while opening the door for the development of other such compounds. 

This anabolic steroids is offered to the market by Kalpa Pharmaceuticals under the name Dianoxyl and comes in 10 mg, 20 mg and 50 mg pills.

Dianoxyl is often compared to oxymetholone (Anadroxyl 50) when describing this compounds ability to make dramatic changes in appearance and strength. Dianoxyl is a very popular oral steroid used by both beginners and veterans alike.

By itself Dianoxyl can produce noticeable results but used in conjunction with other steroids, as a part of a stack, is where this product really shines.

It is not uncommon to have users report employing methandienone to “kick-start” a cycle of injectable steroids in order to see results quickly.

Reported to have a synergistic effect on whatever compound(s) it is stacked with, Kalpa Pharmaceuticals Dianoxyl can really be used at any point in a cycle.

However, as an alkylated compound, users often keep the administration of Dianoxyl (Methandienone) to under eight weeks in order to limit potential liver problems and other side effects.
