To optimize the use of Dianabol, you should restrict it to short term use of about 5-6 weeks when starting a longer bulking stack of 10+ weeks, preferably through injection. This will kick start the process to enjoy all the benefits which are largely non-AR mediated, and aromatized efficiently, leaving limited stacking partners.
The best combinants for Dianabol are crtainly Nandrolone and Testosterone. The dosage should be a maximum of 50 mg, 20-40 mg being the normal dose, which should be spread over split doses for best effects, in the stack or when a single morning dose is taken without mixing with other drugs. Dianabol (DBol) remains indisputably the most popular drug today.
As a methylated compound Dianabol contains a certain level of toxicity, and hence, for safety, its use should not be prolonged in excess of 6 weeks, perhaps 8 weeks maximum and always supervised by a medical professional who is competent to monitor liver values. Because of its tendency to heavily aromatize, it is not ideal for use when cutting.
With 6-8 weeks of maximum use, it leaves just two options, namely, either stack it with another injectable steroid for longer terms use (introduced when other compounds are least active), or doing many short cycles. In that case, the break should be at least for as long as the length of the cycle, or even longer, eg. 6 weeks on, followed by 6-10 weeks off. These cycle variations were successfully adopted by professional bodybuilders of the 70's with most satisfactory results.
For stacking with Testosterone Enanthate, or Cypionate or Deca Durabolin, or even Equipoise, all longer-acting steroids, the best result would be to start in the beginning of the stack. Dianabol is a much faster acting steroid than most other injectables which are slow in showing their real value for the initial 2-3 weeks. That makes Dianabol a particularly rewarding drug for commencing a cycle.
In the normal course, steroids like Deca-Durabolin or Primobolan, and even Equipoise may be stacked with Dianabol in the form of daily injections of 200-400 mg/week. Sometimes Testosterone has also been used along with any one of the other stacks. It was found that oral Primobolan matched well in short cycles, and there was also a milder match with oral Winstrol.
Both these matches provide a lean base for Dianabol, both being 17-alpha alkylated, requiring short-term use. Not having much androgen receptor action, Dianabol synergizes with compounds that do have such strong activity, like the drugs already mentioned.
Similar to secondary products like Arimidex, an anti-aromatase may be suitable. When used along with Deca Durabolin in stacking, Clomid or Nolvadex, possibly even in combination since both are receptor antagonistic, may find good application. As Dianabol aromatizes rapidly, stacking with another rapid aromatizing compound involves the risk for gyno complications, and invariable water retention must also to be considered.
The use of Clomid or Nolvadex after the cycle is completed can also help the body produce natural testosterone. To sustain muscle and bulk gain after completing the cycle, Clomid or Nolvadex may be of some assistance, though it must be noted that existing post-cycle estrogen circulating in the body may cause some adverse reaction.
