Ermalone, a.k.a. methyldihydrotestosterone, mestanolone, and methyl-DHT is a modified version of dihydrotestosterone (DHT), an anabolic steroid that was designed to treat testosterone deficiency in males. Its c-17alpha alkylated modification allows it safe passage through the liver - the body's primary filter for everything that's orally ingested.
Since no further structural modification was added to protect the 3-ketone group, Ermalone is rapidly broken down within skeletal muscle tissue by the 3-alpha hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase enzyme. As a consequence, this oral androgen has an activity profile very similar to other non-aromatizing DHT-derived steroids like Winstrol and Oral Turinabol.
Ermalone is a white to off-white crystalline powder that generally comes in 5-10 mg tablets. Ermalone and methyldihydrotestosterone in general, is no longer manufactured for commercial use as a prescription medication. However, it is still being produced by underground labs and is readily available on the black market.
The recommended dosage for Ermalone users is 10-20 mg/day for 6-8 weeks, which is often enough to keep blood serum levels well above baseline with this particular drug. More specifically, Ermalones strength and muscle gains are largely on par with those of the DHT-derived anabolic steroid Winstrol (Stanozolol). Its anabolic and androgenic effects are typically dose dependent and extremely supportive of testosterone-based cycles. Experienced steroid users have been known to run more aggressive dosages of 30 mg/day of methyldihydrotestosterone.
Indications/Purpose & Side Effects
For the Indications/Purpose & Side Effects of Ermalone see the Anavar profile.
Ermalone stacks well with all compounds, and works to enhance both cutting and mass building cycles. Cycles with powerful mass gaining compounds like testosterone (enanthate, cypionate, and propionate), Dianabol, Trenbolone, and Deca-Durabolin benefit from its strength building properties. Ermalones Winstrol mimicking properties make it an ideally suited cutting cycle compound, which in a testosterone base, stacks very well with Primobolan, Masteron, Oral Turinabol, Trenbolone, Equipoise, and Anavar.
