The psychological effects of Anadrol and Masteron are noticeable, if not as pronounced as with some other DHT derivatives. It was not clear what, if any, psychological effects should have been expected from Superdrol, given how little its androgenic effects looked to be on paper. What the testers found, to begin with was that Superdrol felt “somatically clean,” meaning that there was zero sense of physical malaise or indisposition which is common to Anadrol and especially M1T. On the contrary, testers had a sense of physical well-being, a clean feeling of being ‘on’ – as distinct from the sure knowledge that one is growing, even if one doesn’t feel well, that one gets from M1T or Anadrol. This feeling was not as pronounced as with Dianabol. Psychologically, the following were attributed to the use of Superdrol: confidence, assertiveness, focus, increased libido, the need to do something, aggressiveness in the gym, a command mindset, and some irritability – especially upon ramping up to the next dosing level. One tester described the CNS stimulation he got from doing 30mg at once as being stronger than 50mg of M5, 32mg of M4OHN, or EC. Endurance and strength should be mentioned here as well, because while above I have offered physical explanations for them, some of this effect could well be psychological, in which case it would dissipate upon cessation of the use of Superdrol. There was some increase in appetite for some of the testers, a decrease for others; in either case this was not overwhelming.
The active compound in Superdrol is methasterone (systematic IUPAC name: 17β-Hydroxy-2α,17α-dimethyl-5α-androstane-3-one) – also known as methyldrostanolone and methasteron – which rose to superstar status during its run for the speedy results it can deliver when cycled, especially in terms of very hard and dry gains just after a couple of weeks of usage. Reports of achieving upwards of 20 to 30 pounds of muscle mass were not uncommon from users after cycling with Superdrol in the span of 4 weeks. Its half-life is timed at 6 to 8 hours.
Non-medical users of anabolic steroids often “stack” different anabolic steroids over the course of a “cycle” of use. They also administer various ancillary drugs and substances to enhance the desired effects of anabolic steroids or to minimize adverse side effects. The most common liquid (injectable) anabolic steroids encountered in these cases are (oil-based) esters of testosterone (., testosterone cypionate, testosterone enanthate, and testosterone propionate, and a blend of testosterone esters called Sustanon 250) or nandrolone (., nandrolone decanoate). Also popular are Equipoise (boldenone undecylenate) and trenbolone acetate and trenbolone enanthate, as well as the water-based injectable Winstrol (stanozolol). Popular oral anabolic steroids include methandrostenolone (Dianbol), oxandrolone (Anavar) and oxymetholone (Anadrol 50).
