Anabolex is another name for Dianabol or Dbol, as it's more commonly known among bodybuilding and athletic circles.
It contains 3mg of the active ingredient Methandrostenolone (sometimes referred to as Methandienone).
Because of the number of generic, brand names, nicknames, and chemical names of anabolic androgenic steroids, it can often be difficult to tell the difference between them.
Anabolex Dianabol is manufactured by Ethical Pharma in the Dominican Republic – a country where steroids are legal to buy without a prescription. There is also another brand called “Euro Anabolex”.

Copycats are prevalent in the field of steroid manufacture these days.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re talking about Anabolex or other gear: do your homework.
Anabolex is manufactured by an underground pharmaceutical (“Ethical Pharma”) and sold widely in Caribbean and Latin American countries.
Because Dbol is illegal to buy in Australia, the US, and the UK without a prescription, many people turn to unregulated laboratories like this.
It purports to be a combination of methandrostenolone (Dianabol) and an appetite-stimulating drug known chemically as Cyproheptadine hydrochloride.
It is an oral form of anabolic androgenic steroid, just like Dianabol, but why mix the two?
One reason that separates Anabolex from other anabolic androgenic steroids is that Dianabol (as an ingredient in Anabolex) is known to mix or stack well with other anabolic androgenic steroids.
This makes just about anything stacked with Dianabol capable of providing moderate muscle mass gains – with a balanced and nutritional diet, exercise, and appropriate training.
No anabolic androgenic steroid will work on its own and provide a bodybuilder or athlete desired results without an adequate and appropriate diet as well as exercise!
However, the addition of cyproheptadine makes a difference.
About the other ingredient in Anabolex – cyproheptadine. What does that do?
It’s defined as an anti-histamine that also provides a number of anti-serotonergic, anesthetic, and anti-cholinergic activities and properties; also known as Periactin or Peritol (brand names).
Cyproheptadine is a drug recommended in the treatment of allergies to relieve allergy symptoms.
Its mechanism of action is to block histamine actions and therefore reduce many common symptoms of allergies.
Why would a bodybuilder use an anti-histamine for bodybuilding?
Most use it because they perceive it as an appetite-stimulating component that helps them consume often incredibly large number of calories required for accelerated and impressive muscle mass gains.
But there’s a catch – the gain in size and weight is produced by some muscle, but most of the gains are due to water retention.
While some bodybuilders don’t seem to care where exactly that weight gain or perceived muscle mass come from its, it can make a difference.
Some users claim anywhere between 10 and 30 pounds of weight gained within six weeks when using Anabolex.
As with the number of drugs used by bodybuilders and athletes, it’s important to be aware of exactly what cyproheptadine does in the body.
As an antihistamine that also has anti-serotonergic properties, it is often used as an antidepressant, and in some cases, to treat anorexia nervosa.
Even more so, cyproheptadine is perceived to increase the production of insulin-like growth hormone, which when combined with testosterone and growth hormone released by the testes and the pituitary gland respectively, can accelerate goals.
Another purpose is to aid in sleep. Increased levels of testosterone in the body can cause sleep disruptions, and for some, even insomnia. Cyproheptadine is quite potent and may help those with difficulty sleeping.
Some bodybuilders and athletes use cyproheptadine on its own without combining it with an anabolic androgenic steroid.
As with any combination of steroids, antihistamines, sympathomimetic amines, or growth hormone, dosage is often a matter of preference.
Anabolex milligram strength is approximately 3 mg. Some bodybuilding websites and forum board discussion threads suggest up to 12 capsules (a total of 36 mg) a day.
In milligram strength, what the user will get is approximately 12 mg of the cyproheptadine and approximately 24 mg of Dianabol.
It is recommended that those just starting out with begin with about half that Anabolex dosage.
Anabolex does have the potential for aromatization. A number of side effects are not only possible, but probable with use. For example:
Don’t forget to review the possible side effects associated with cyproheptadine, which can include:
Liver toxicity is also a potential, so it is recommended to use be limited to no more than four to six weeks.
Anti-aromatizing drugs (aromatase inhibitors like Arimidex), and anti-estrogenic drugs are commonly incorporated into a stack when using Anabolex to reduce the potential for side effects – with varying degrees of success.
When seeing the new nickname or product for an anabolic androgenic steroid that is marketed to be “exactly like Dianabol” or marketed as being identical to another popular and pharmaceutical grade steroid, it’s always recommended that the potential user do some homework and find out what it is.
Whether you’re a culturista (bodybuilder in Spanish) in the Dominican Republic, or visiting there on holidays, going to buy Anabolex is no different, be careful before using.
