Chlorodehydromethyltestosterone, the generic name for the more recognized brand Oral Turinabol, is a potent derivative of Dianabol. This oral steroid is structurally a cross between methandrostenolone and clostebol (4-chlorotestosterone), having the same base structure as Dianabol with the added 4-chloro alteration of clostebol. This alteration makes chlorodehydromethyltestosterone a milder cousin of Dianabol; the new steroid displays no estrogenic and a much less androgenic activity than its more famous counterpart. The anabolic activity of chlorodehydromethyltestosterone is somewhat lower than that of Dianabol, but it maintains a much more favorable balance of anabolic to androgenic effect. This means that at any given level of muscle-building activity, chlorodehydromethyltestosterone will be less likely to produce androgenic side effects.
Oral Turinabol became a steroid of infamy during the 1990s when it was revealed that the drug had been one of the closely held secrets inside the “East German Doping Machine.” This refers to the state-sponsored doping program, called “State Plan Research Theme 14.25,” that operated in East Germany between 1974 and 1989. It was an aggressive anabolic steroid administration program designed to create the Olympic drug test. In many cases, the Olympic athletes, both male, and female were unwitting participants, told by their trainers and coaches that they were being given “vitamins.” Many of these blue vitamins turned out to be Oral Turinabol, a potent and undetectable (at the time) anabolic steroid. As many as 10,000 athletes were given anabolic steroids during the time the program was active, and many took Oral Turinabol.
When used by men for physique- or performance-enhancing purposes, this drug is commonly used in the range of 15-40 milligrams per day, taken in cycles lasting no more than six to eight weeks to minimize hepatotoxicity. This level is sufficient for measurable increases in lean muscle mass and strength. This agent is most often applied as a pre-contest or cutting steroid for bodybuilding purposes. It is not viewed as an ideal bulking agent due to its lack of estrogenicity. Women commonly use five milligrams per day, taken in cycles lasting no more than four to six weeks. Virilizing effects are unlikely at this level of use, though they cannot be excluded. Much higher doses were often used with female athletes in the former GDR doping program, but often to the detriment of strong virilizing side effects.
