Prohormone DymethazineDymethazine is a relatively new over the counter steroid. Dymethazine was introduced to the supplement market by iForce Nutrition in late 2008. The product Dymethazine contains dimethazine (17b-OH-2a, 17-dimethyl-5a-androstan-3-one-3.3′-azine). Dymethazine is two Superdrol molecules bound together by a nitrogen atom. While Dymethazine is similar in effect to Superdrol, they are not completely the same which is demonstrated in their differing anabolic to androgenic ratios. Superdrol has an anabolic to androgenic ratio of 400/20, while Dymethazine has a ratio of 210/95 making it less anabolic and more androgenic than Superdrol.

Dymethazine is a “dry” compound which is usually used alone during a cutting phase or stacked with a “wet” anabolic during a bulking phase for a balanced stack. Dymethazine also has the effect of loading water into the muscles as it is an inhibitor of 11b-hydroxylase like Superdrol. In combination with the lack of subcutaneous (under the skin) water retention experienced with Dymethazine, this should produce a lean, hard look and put on pounds fast. Unfortunately with these types of steroids, much of the weight gained is water rather than muscle tissue and may be quickly lost when the cycle is discontinued.

Dymethazine can not convert to estrogen so estrogenic side effects in cycle should be non-existent when Dymethazine is used standalone. It is, however, fairly androgenic so androgenic side effects such as hair loss are a possibility with Dymethazine. Dymethazine is dimethylated, so it does put significant stress on the liver. Dymethazine will cause more liver stress than most other methylated steroids, but because it is two Superdrol molecules bound together it should cause less liver stress than Superdrol itself. A common side effect experienced with Dymethazine is painful muscle pumps/cramps, especially in the lower back and calves.

Dymethazine was supposed to be a lower side effect version of Superdrol. Unfortunately, most users report that at the recommended dosage (2-5 capsules per day at 15mg dimethazine per capsule), the results were disappointing in comparison. iForce has discontinued Dymethazine, but there are some clone products that are still available. This steroid is not actually legal as it is not found naturally occurring, but it is able to be sold because it is not specifically listed as a controlled substance. Products like this may not be around for long, as they do not meet the requirements for what can be considered a dietary supplement. There are, however, legal prohormones that are available that will still give good results. For completely legal and effective prohormones, click here.
