Deca Durabolin is widely regarded as one of the safest and effective steroids. Nandrolone is commonly used as a base in a steroid cycle. Nandrolone is an anabolic steroid that is both present in the human body and also made synthetic. The levels in the human body are very low to account for any significant effects. It is a byproduct when other hormones breakdown in our body. Of all the anabolic steroids, it is one of the most widely abused steroids by athletes and bodybuilders.
It is often sold under several names including DECA Durabolin or Durabolin. Both the synthetic forms are long acting drugs. The drug possesses both androgenic and anabolic activities. When taken at low doses, it is a powerful anabolic drug but at high doses, it also possesses significant androgenic effects.
Nandrolone was once used for the treatment of osteoporosis and aplastic anemias. In the 80s it was used to treat severely emaciated patients in hospitals. However, since the 80s and 90s, the widespread abuse of the drug has led to it removal from the clinical market. No clinical condition in medicine is treated with nandrolone.
When the drug is taken on orally, it is rapidly absorbed from the stomach. However, the oral pills are no longer available on the market. The synthetic formulations are longer acting and have to be injected intramuscularly. When the drug is injected intramuscularly, it should only be administered once a week. Nandrolone is a potent anabolic steroid and is known to cause an increase in muscle mass, stimulate appetite and increase red blood cell production.
This ability of nandrolone to increase red cells has been widely quoted as a cause of the improved exercise performance after taking the drug.
Nandrolone is slowly broken down by the liver and is also converted to estrogen by the enzyme aromatase. The levels of estrogen are responsible for causing the gynecomastia and water retention. However, this conversion to estrogen only occurs when high doses of nandrolone are used.
Nandrolone is often used in combination with many other hormones, like Clomiphene, Anavar and growth hormone. Most people cycle the drug every month. This avoids the side effects and maintains the body weight.
Nandrolone does have a wide range of side effects when it is used for a long time. When used at low doses, the side effects are rare and minor. Infact, except for bloating and nausea, most people do not notice anything significant. However, at high doses, the most common side effects include:
mood swings- depression, anger, aggressiveness
loss of hair
The majority of these side effects reverse when the drug is stopped. Some of the side effects like oily skin and acne do persist for a few months after the drug is stopped. In females, the virilizing effects are not always reversible.
Nandrolone is available as a pill and also a liquid for injection. The pill formulations appear to have disappeared from the market and many bodybuilders had difficulty putting on weight with the drug. The longer acting nandrolone in injection form is used today by all bodybuilders. The oily liquid formulation should only be injected into the buttock area and this site should be frequently rotated to prevent abscess formation. When large volumes are injected in the buttocks, there may be pain and a constant ache. The recommended dose of nandrolone decanoate is 200-1000mg/week. If no effects are seen after 6 months of use, the drug must be discontinued. One should be aware that when no effects are seen after long term use of the steroid, one must suspect a fake formulation- which is not unheard of.
Nandrolone liquid preparations do often breakdown and if the product is discolored or appears clumped it should not be used.
