Durobolic (nandrolone phenylpropionate)
This medicine belongs to the group of medicines known as anabolic steroids. They are related to testosterone, a male sex hormone. Anabolic steroids help to rebuild tissues that have become weak because of serious injury or illness. A diet high in proteins and calories is necessary with anabolic steroid treatment.
Nandrolone is chemically related to the male hormone. Compared to testosterone, it has an enhanced anabolic and a reduced androgenic activity. This has been demonstrated in animal bioassays and explained by receptor binding studies. The low androgenicity of nandrolone is confirmed in clinical use. In the human, nandrolone has been shown to positively influence calcium metabolism, to increase red blood cell production and bone density and to increase bone mass in osteoporosis. In women with disseminated mammary carcinoma, Nandrolone has been reported to produce objective regressions for many months.
Clinical studies have shown it to be effective in treating anaemia, osteoporosis and some forms of neoplasia including breast cancer, and also acts as a progestin-based contraceptive.
Furthermore, Nandrolone has a nitrogen-saving action. This effect on protein metabolism has been established by metabolic studies and is utilised therapeutically in conditions where a protein deficiency exists such as during chronic debilitating diseases and after major surgery and severe trauma. In these conditions, Nandrolone Phenylpropionate serves as a supportive adjunct to specific therapies and dietary measures as well as parenteral nutrition, due to it's faster acting nature Nandrolone phenylpropionate is preffered in situations where a faster clinical response is required over it's chemical variant Nandrolone decaonate.
Because nandrolone is not broken down into DHT, the deleterious effects common to most anabolic steroids on the scalp, skin, and prostate are lessened to a degree. The lack of alkylation on the 17a-carbon drastically reduces the drug's liver toxicity. Estrogenic effects resulting from reaction with aromatase are also mitigated as a result of the drug being a progestin, but effects such as gynaecomastia and reduced libido still occur in larger doses. Other side-effects can include erectile dysfunction and cardiovascular damage, as well as several ailments resulting from the drug's effect of lowering levels of luteinizing hormone through negative feedback.

Legitimate Medical Use:
The steroid durabolin was developed and is used to treat breast cancer. It is also prescribed when a decrease in red blood cells occurs due to conditions such as kidney failure.
Durabolin can cause a host of side effects including a reduction of the body's natural testosterone, masculinization, enlarged breast in men and the shrinkage of the testicles.
Warning signs requiring medical attention:
Acne, excitation, insomnia, nausea, diarrhea and bladder irritability.
Identifying the Steroid:
Powder and injectable forms.
