Dinandrol is to nandrolone what Sustanon is to testosterone, well sort of. This product is an injectable anabolic steroid from the Philippines that contains a blend of one short and one long acting ester of nandrolone. The intent, as with Sustanon, is to provide the user more of a sustained-release effect compared to that obtained with single-ester injectables. Each ml of Dinandrol contains 60mg of nandrolone decanoate and 40mg of nandrolone phenylpropionate, for a total steroid concentration of 100mg per ml (200mg per 2ml vial). Although this product lacks the propionate and isocaproate esters that would make it a true nandrolone equivalent of Sustanon, I suspect it still provides a release profile very similar to this drug. After all, the difference in steroid release time between propionate and phenylpropionate esters are not that great, and with a good dose of decanoate it is difficult to think the isocaproate will be tremendously missed. It is about as close as we can get to a real "Sustanon", and with a product like this there would seem little added benefit in actually developing one.
As with all nandrolone products, Dinandrol offers a moderate anabolic effect with only mild androgenic or estrogenic side effects (for a more comprehensive discussion, please see the Deca-Durabolin profile). Although designed as a long and steady acting product, bodybuilders are not looking for a nandrolone replacement drug that is injected once a month. With this in mind Dinandrol is most often injected on a weekly basis. The dose, as with regular Deca-Durabolin, would be in the range of 200-600mg per application. If anything, one would only be noticing a difference between Dinandrol and Deca when first starting a cycle (due to the faster onset of action), and only if they tended to notice the benefits of steroid therapy very quickly. Otherwise the drug will build to pretty significant and "steady-state" levels within a few injections, making it impossible to distinguish from regular Deca-Durabolin. For the bodybuilder it is, therefore, not any type of "must have" steroid to go run out and start searching for, but most certainly is an acceptable option if found at a fair pric
Dinandrol is one of those odd steroid products that are rarely found in an actual pharmacy. This is because it is not registered as a prescription drug in the country in which it is made (so don't expect to take any home if you visit). Instead, it is an export only item, sold to importers in other countries who likely are quick to divert it to the black market. Although you may not have the benefit of obtaining it through legitimate channels, it is not that difficult to recognize real Dinandrol when one crosses this item on the black market. Its packaging is unique, and would seemingly be difficult and costly to duplicate. Well, maybe the multi-dose vials are not that unique, three of which are packaged in a blue shaded box that is also pretty easy to copy. But you do open the box to find the vials sitting nicely in a clear-plastic tray that bears the firm's name (Xelox). It is not printed on the tray but molded directly into the plastic, which would obviously be some task for an underground manufacturer to duplicate. Being that this item is rarely even heard of at this time, I do not expect fakes to be a problem very soon.
Drive (boldenone/methylandrostenediol blend)
Drive is an extremely unique veterinary steroid, available only in Australia. This is actually a very interesting place for steroids, possessing a number of unusual compounds. Strange methandriol mixes, unusual esters (such a; nandrolone cypionate, see Dynabol) and probably the only place in the world that produces 500ml bladders o testosterone. Quite the place to visit. Laws regarding steroids have become stricter in recent years, so traveler; should not expect to be able to run into a veterinary shop to load up. There is of course an active black marke catering to bodybuilders.
This particular item is an oil based injectable, containing 25mg boldenone undecylenate and 30mg methandric (methylandrostenediol dipropionate) per ml. Boldenone is familiar to us as the preparation Equipoise®, bu methandriol is very rarely seen on the U.S. black market. It is a strong anabolic with a notable androgenk component. Methandriol can come in one of two forms actually, there is a 17-methylated compound designed fo oral administration, or the methylated & esterified (dipropionate) version commonly seen as an injectable Australian vet compounds. Methandriol produces notable muscle mass and strength gains, usually withou accompanying water retention. In this mix it works nicely when mixed with the anabolic boldenone. Together th( two compounds produce exceptional gains in strength and muscle mass.
As with almost every effective steroid, Drive can produce a noticeable set of side effects. While the boldenone only mildly androgenic, methandriol shows slightly more pronounced activity. Androgenic side effects like oily skin acne and increased aggression are all possible with this product. Women may want to stay away from Drive fearing the androgen content will produce virilization symptoms. Estrogen can sometimes become troublesorm with this drug, presumably from the aromatization of boldenone which is slight. Methylandrostenediol itself can directly aromatize, however it has been shown to display some low affinity for the estrogen receptor (possibly enhancing estrogenic activity as well). Sensitive individuals may therefore opt for the addition of an antiestrogei such as Nolvadex® and/or Proviron®, in an effort to avoid any chance of developing gynecomastia and minimize any slight smoothness due to subcutaneous water retention. In comparison to stronger stacks however water bloat is usually not a major problem with Drive. This combination is in fact often noted for producing a ver hard, quality physique.
Since methandriol is a c17 alpha alkylated compound, liver toxicity can be a concern. The injectable dipropionate does offer us less toxicity however, as your liver will not have to process the entire dosage at once during the firs pass. It is therefore the preferred form of administration among bodybuilders, on those rare instances that botl might be available. Of course the possibility of liver damage cannot be excluded with the injectable though. It is also interesting to note that once the esters have been removed, we see that structurally methandriol is just methylated form of 5-androstenediol. This is clear when we look at the chemical name (methyl-androstenediol) o a methylated form of this hormone (which is of course a popular pro-hormone supplement).
Drive is rarely smuggled into the U.S. in noticeable quantity, but can be found on occasion. The packaging o many Australian vet compounds, Drive included, is quite simple and easy to duplicate, so beware should an abundance of any particular substance begin to circulate
