The Russian Dianabol is packaged in push-through strips of ten tablets each. Ten push-through strips are contained in a green box or are held together by a black rubber band and a rag similar to toilet paper. The imprint on the push-through strips is either blue or black. The tablets are not indented and it is of note that the substance amount is given in grams ( g/tablet) Since the price is low the Russian Dianabol is often taken in two-digit quantities. Although the tablets cost only 2-4 cents in Russia, a price of $ is quite acceptable on the black market. The situation with the Russian compound is a little different since, in the meantime, numerous athletes have experienced unusual side effects with these tablets. They range from nausea, vomiting, and elevated liver values to real cases of illness, which have forced one or more athletes to stay in bed for several days.
