DIANABOL also known as methandienone or methandrostenolone is a derivative of testosterone, and exhibits a strong anabolic effect along with a moderate androgenic effect.

Being an aromatising steroid, oestrogen related side effects can be expected with the use of methandrostenolone. Gynecomastia could be experienced during the course, or after, when excessive oestrogen levels may be experienced. Gynecomastia is the formation of breast tissue, and is commonly first noticed as puffy and/or sore nipples. If this is observed by the user the introduction of an anti-oestrogen such as nolvadex may help relieve the condition. A better option if available however would be the inclusion of an anti-aromatase such as arimidex, femara, or aromasin.

Water retention is common with the use of methandrostenolone, which can give the user a much less defined look. Blood pressure should ideally be checked when using this drug. Back and shin pumps are common, making cardiovascular activities difficult. This makes methandrostenolone not a common choice for cutting cycles.
