Deca Durabolin will help you gain up to 10 kg per cycle (with proper nutrition and training). Deca is not toxic to the liver. Besides, it increases protein synthesis and metabolism, reduces the amount of cortisol, improves blood circulation in the body and also increases sexual desire in both men and women. Moreover, Deca Durabolin has a positive effect on the natural production of testosterone.
When using Nandrolone Decanoate, it is important to know that the substance accumulates very slowly. Therefore, do not expect quick results: the effect lasts for at least three weeks.
Nandrolone Decanoate – general information
Nandrolone Decanoate (the active ingredient of the drug) was popular in the early 60-ies of the XX century. It was used mainly for the treatment of various diseases associated with the suppression of anabolic processes, insufficient production of hormones, as well as anemia, chronic infections, etc. In a short time, Deca Durabolin became popular in bodybuilding and other sports. It was used to increase muscle mass and strength in male athletes.
Nandrolone Decanoate is one of the most effective drugs for the maximum increase in muscle mass and power performance with minimal risk of side effects.
Nandrolone Decanoate has a negative impact on the production of androgen testosterone, so it should be used preferably under the supervision of a physician.
Deca Durabolin and medical practice
Deca Durabolin is a steroid agent that helps promote fixation of Ca2+ in bone, increased bone mass in osteoporosis, as well as increased appetite and body weight.
The drug accelerates the growth of male reproductive organs and promotes the formation of secondary sex characteristics. When used in large doses, it reduces the synthesis of endogenous sex hormones. Deca helps activate the reparative processes in the epithelium, bone and muscle tissue by stimulating protein synthesis. It increases the absorption of amino acids from the small intestine (with a diet rich in proteins). This agent stimulates the production of erythropoietin and activates anabolic processes in the bone marrow (antianemic action).
Deca solution for intramuscular injection is used for the treatment of diabetic retinopathy, progressive muscular dystrophy, Werdnig-Hoffmann disease. It is also used in conditions characterized by a negative balance of Ca2 + (senile and postmenopausal osteoporosis, long-term GCS therapy).
Deca Durabolin is effective in case of chronic infections, glucocorticoid-induced myopathy, burns, severe injury. This drug is sometimes used in patients with anemia (congenital aplastic anemia, myelofibrosis-associated anemia, bone marrow aplasia, etc.).
As for adjunct therapy, Deca Durabolin is used in cytotoxic therapy of cancer (excluding prostate cancer), inoperable breast cancer in postmenopausal women or in patients after ovariectomy. It can be also used in children and adolescents with pituitary dwarfism.
Dosage and administration:
Patients usually use 50 mg of Deca Durabolin, once every 3-4 weeks. If necessary, the dose can be increased to 100 mg. Children should use 0.4 mg/kg every 3-4 weeks. The optimal duration of therapy is up to 12 months. If necessary, you can repeat the therapy after 4 weeks.
Higher doses are recommended for the treatment of severe conditions (including breast cancer, refractory anemia). Treatment should be combined with a high-protein diet.
Doses in anemia (with Fe preparations) – 100-200 mg (50-100 mg for women) 1 time per week.
Stimulation of anabolic processes – 50-200 mg (50-100 mg for women) once every 1-4 weeks; children 2-13 years – 25-50 mg once in 3-4 weeks.
Doses in breast carcinoma – 50-100 mg 1 time per week.
Doses in cytostatic therapy – up to 75 mg. Doses in severe chronic renal failure – 50 mg 1 time per week.
Deca Durabolin can lead to the progression of atherosclerosis (increased LDL concentrations and decreased HDL concentrations), iron deficiency anemia, peripheral edema, dyspepsia (epigastric pain, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting), hepatic dysfunction with jaundice, leukemia, bleeding, dark stool, vomiting with blood, headaches, respiratory failure, pharyngitis or tonsillitis, hepatocellular carcinoma, cholestatic hepatitis (yellow sclera and skin, dark urine, discolored feces), increased or decreased libido, diarrhea, bloating, cramps, sleep disturbance.
Deca Durabolin indications for athletes
Nandrolone Decanoate is one of the most effective drugs for male athletes. It has virtually no side effects. Note that beginners or young patients who have not yet reached puberty should use moderate amounts of drug and even under the supervision of a doctor, because Nandrolone Decanoate adversely affects the production of testosterone. Nevertheless, it has a positive effect on the formation of sex characteristics in men. As for women, the doses of Deca Durabolin should be minimal to avoid virilization symptoms.

Deca Durabolin Cycle and dosage
The optimal dose of Deca Durabolin is 200 to 600 mg per week. Nandrolone Decanoate can be used once a week. The optimal dosage for women is 25-50 mg per week. The duration should not exceed 12 weeks.
If you take the drug longer than two months, you should also take Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (starting from 4-5 weeks). Continue using Gonadotropin at the end of the cycle (included in PCT). Alternatively, Gonadotropin can be replaced by testosterone boosters to restore the secretion of testosterone. Progesterone activity can be blocked by taking Bromocriptine (starting from the 2nd week during the cycle and up to 2-3 weeks after) or Cabergoline (more preferably). Clomid is used to restore the function of the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis. Winstrol helps suppress progestin activity. The maximum effect is achieved if you follow a diet and use high-quality sports nutrition.
As for how to take Deca Durabolin in combination therapy, Testosterone is a perfect match for this drug. It will help compensate low libido and other unwanted effects.
Deca is successfully combined with many anabolic steroids. As for the cutting phase, the ideal combination is Nandrolone, Winstrol, Anavar, and Masteron. Deca Durabolin and Winstrol is an effective combination that helps build muscle and achieve sustainable results. If you want to gain more muscle mass, Deca will work well with Testosterone Enanthate and Danabol – this is a classic combination for solid amount of muscle mass. Also, Deca Durabolin can be combined with Sustanon, which is a blend of four testosterone esters. Deca can be taken with Nolvadex and Proviron to avoid accumulation of fluid in body tissues.
Do not use Deca with other progestogens, as well as with Trenbolone and Anadrol.
Deca Durabolin Side effects
The drug has extremely low probability of side effects (when used at recommended dosage levels). If you exceed the concentration of the active substance, Deca Durabolin will cause gynecomastia and edema. The following side effects may also occur at high doses: nausea, vomiting, jaundice, acne, mild hirsutism. All these negative effects will go away after discontinuation of the drug.
As for women, it is best not to exceed the dose of 200 mg per week in order to avoid dangerous side effects. If you take higher doses, the drug may cause masculinization (excessive hair growth, hypertrophy of the clitoris, sexual desire disorders).
As with all anabolic agents based on testosterone esters, Nandrolone suppresses the production of testosterone. Therefore, athletes should not increase the recommended duration of the cycle and should take certain medications to help restore natural testosterone levels.
