Methandriol Dipropionate. Active: Methylandrostenediol Dipropinate
Methandriol Dipropionate (M.D.) is a form of the water-dissolved Methandriol but it remains effective for a longer period of time. On the one hand, M.D. can be dissolved in oil for injection purposes and, on the other hand, it is produced in tablet form since it is also effective when taken orally. M.D. has a strong anabolic and androgenic component so that it is suitable for the buildup of strength and muscle mass. The effect can be compared to a cross between Deca and Testosterone Enanthate. Like testosterone it contributes to a gain in both strength and muscle but does not retain more water than Deca. The best results can be obtained, however, if M.D. is not taken alone but in combination with another steroid. This is because M.D. is able to magnify the effects of other steroid compounds. It does this by increasingly sensitizing the androgenic receptors of the muscle cell, allowing a higher amount of the steroid molecules of the additionally taken steroids to be absorbed by the receptors.
Combination steroids like Drive, use Methadriol Dipropionate in its preperations. The few athletes using this drug report good strength gains, a solid muscle gain, and low water retention. The combination steroids aromatize only slightly so, when taking only M.D, the use of anti-estrogens is perhaps appropriate. The injectable form is only slightly toxic.
The usual dosage for athletes is 100 mg every 2-3 days. It is beneficial to combine M.D. with another steroid, preferably an injectable one. The normal daily dose is 40-60 mg and is usually taken in 2-3 individual doses spread over the day. The tablets are usually taken for only 4-6 weeks since the effect decreases quickly, thus requiring higher dosages. They are also 17-alpha alkylated so even a low dosage and a short intake can be damaging to the liver. Because of its androgenic effect women rarely use M.D. Possible side effects of the tablet form can be elevated levels of liver toxins, gastrointestinal pain, acne, gynecomastia, increased aggressiveness, and high blood pressure.
