Drive (Boldenone Undecylenate & Methylandrostenediol Dipropionate)
SHORT DRIVE DESCRIPTION:
Drive is a very rare and exotic veterinary steroids manufactured in Australia. The usually dosage for Driveis 55-220 mg per week.
Drive is a mixture of two steroids, containing 25 mg boldenone undecylenate and 30 mg methandriol (methylandrostenediol dipropionate) per ml. Together the two compounds produce exceptional gains in strength and muscle mass. As with almost every effective steroid, Drive can produce a noticeable set of side effects. Androgenic side effects like oily skin, acne and increased aggression are all possible with this product. Sensitive individuals may therefore opt for the addition of an antiestrogen such as Nolvadex and/or Proviron. Women may want to stay away from Drive, fearing the androgen content will produce virilization symptoms.
LONG DRIVE DESCRIPTION:
Drive is an extremely unique veterinary steroid, available only in Australia. This is actually a very interesting place for steroids, possessing a number of unusual compounds. Strange methandriol mixes, unusual esters (such as nandrolone cypionate, see Dynabol) and probably the only place in the world that produces 500 ml bladders of testosterone. Quite the place to visit. Laws regarding steroids have become stricter in recent years, so travelers should not expect to be able to run into a veterinary shop to load up. There is of course an active black market catering to bodybuilders.
This particular item is an oil based injectable, containing 25 mg boldenone undecylenate and 30 mg methandriol (methylandrostenediol dipropionate) per ml. Boldenone is familiar to us as the preparation Equipoise, but methandriol is very rarely seen on the U.S. black market. It is a strong anabolic with a notable androgenic component. Methandriol can come in one of two forms actually, there is a 17-methylated compound designed for oral administration, or the methylated & esterified (dipropionate) version commonly seen as an injectable in Australian vet compounds. Methandriol produces notable muscle mass and strength gains, usually without accompanying water retention. In this mix it works nicely when mixed with the anabolic boldenone. Together the two compounds produce exceptional gains in strength and muscle mass.
As with almost every effective steroid, Drive can produce a noticeable set of side effects. While the boldenone is only mildly androgenic, methandriol shows slightly more pronounced activity. Androgenic side effects like oily skin, acne and increased aggression are all possible with this product. Women may want to stay away from Drive, fearing the androgen content will produce virilization symptoms. Estrogen can sometimes become troublesome with this drug, presumably from the aromatization of boldenone which is slight. Methylandrostenediol itself cannot directly aromatize, however it has been shown to display some low affinity for the estrogen receptor (possibly enhancing estrogenic activity as well). Sensitive individuals may therefore opt for the addition of an antiestrogen such as Nolvadex and/or Proviron, in an effort to avoid any chance of developing gynecomastia and to minimize any slight smoothness due to subcutaneous water retention. In comparison to stronger stacks however, water bloat is usually not a major problem with Drive. This combination is in fact often noted for producing a very hard, quality physique.
Since methandriol is a c17 alpha alkylated compound, liver toxicity can be a concern. The injectable dipropionate does offer us less toxicity however, as your liver will not have to process the entire dosage at once during the first pass. It is therefore the preferred form of administration among bodybuilders, on those rare instances that both might be available. Of course the possibility of liver damage cannot be excluded with the injectable though. It is also interesting to note that once the esters have been removed, we see that structurally methandriol is just a methylated form of 5-androstenediol. This is clear when we look at the chemical name (methyl-androstenediol) or a methylated form of this hormone (which is of course a popular pro-hormone supplement).
Drive is rarely smuggled into the U.S. in noticeable quantity, but can be found on occasion. The packaging of many Australian vet compounds, Drive included, is quite simple and easy to duplicate, so beware should an abundance of any particular substance begin to circulate.
