Dbol.com recommends starting with a dosage of 20 milligrams per day. The dosage can be increased to 30 to 50 milligrams per day if desired. The drug should not be used for more than four to six weeks due to its severe liver toxicity.
Dbol is the brand name of an anabolic steroid called Dianobol, or methandrostenolone. A study published in Clinical Science in 1981 treated weightlifters with 100 milligrams of methandrostenolone or a placebo for six weeks. The subjects on the drug gained more weight and mass than the subjects on the placebo, but the flesh gained by the drug users did not have characteristics of lean muscle tissue. The researchers stated that the weight gain induced by methandrostenolone is not normal muscle.
