The truth about injectable Dianabol & Winstrol

Did you know that many oral AAS can be injected? The most commonly used and easy-to-find ones are Dianabol and Winstrol, but some users also make their own injectable Superdrol, Anadrol, Turinabol and Anavar preparations.

In this post we will be focusing on the most commonly used ones: injectable Dianabol and Winstrol.



There are two types of injectable Dianabol.

The first one is Equipoise, which has the same chemical structure as Dianabol without the methylation at the 17th position (in other words, Dianabol is oral Equipoise).

Equipoise is VERY different from Dianabol. EQ is a dry, long-acting injectable steroid known for providing lean gains, increasing endurance and maximizing vascularity, whereas Dianabol is a wet compound use for bulking cycles. In fact, Equipoise appears to have anti-estrogenic actions even though Dianabol is VERY estrogenic.

The other type of injectable Dianabol is ACTUAL injectable Dianabol. What does that mean? Well, Equipoise is simply Dianabol minus the methylation. Injectable Dianabol keeps the methylation (so it has the exact same structure as Dianabol) but is simply prepared in oil solutions for intramuscular injection.

Injectable Dbol differs from oral Dbol in that it appears to be less liver toxic (it still is) and less estrogenic (it still is), meaning that water retention won’t be as bad and the risk of gynecomastia and acne will be lower. Some users also report more gains on it, which would make sense if we consider that injectables are always more powerful than orals on a mg per mg basis due to better absorption.

Unfortunately, injectable Dianabol can have a terrible PIP (post-injection pain). Diluting the oil-based Dianabol solution in BAC water can help, so I would recommend pre-loading a syringe with bac water or sterile oil and then back-loading it with injectable Dianabol if you struggle to bear the PIP.

In terms of dosing, you should keep it between 150 and 250mg a week, always with AI on hand. It should be pinned at least every other day, but preferably every day since it has no ester. This means that only a small dose needs to be pinned daily, making it suitable for subcutaneous shots (which can be another great way to avoid serious PIP).



Injectable Winstrol is quite interesting and often preferable to the oral formulation to people who have tried both.

It has the same overall effects as oral Winstrol, except it is less liver toxic and more potent mg per mg (due to better absorption/bioavailability). Some users report that injectable Winstrol makes them look more dry and vascular than its oral counterpart

The biggest drawback to injectable Winstrol is the terrible PIP. Diluting the oil-based Winstrol solution in BAC water or sterile oil as explained in the Dianabol section is advised.

Since it is much stronger mg per mg, the dose should be kept between 200 and 350mg per week. There is no need to go higher in my opinion. The exact half-life is not known, but it is rumored to be somewhat longer than that of oral Winstrol. Most users inject it once a day or every other day. This means that only a small dose needs to be pinned daily, making it suitable for subcutaneous shots (which can be another great way to avoid serious PIP).


In conclusion, injectable Dianabol and injectable Winstrol are fascinating compounds that can be an interesting alternative to their oral counterparts. However, only experienced enhanced bodybuilders should consider running these compounds because pinning them can prove to be somewhat challenging.
