A well-planned diet is essential in all sports, and BodyBuilding is no exception, the diet in BodyBuilding plays a major role in training and is now well known. While the BodyBuilder is in Bulk or Cut mode, calorie and macronutrient counting remains fundamental, however, on the other hand, consuming enough Bulk is not always easy for everyone, even during an AAS cycle; this is especially true when the diet exceeds 4000-5000 kcal per day.
Athletes resort to appetite stimulants to address this problem. Among the main remedies we find the use of vitamin B12 (especially injectable) and vitamin B9 supplements, although some AAS like Boldenone have been shown to increase appetite, but this is not always enough.
Regarding the combination “AAS / appetite stimulants”, there is a very interesting drug called Anabolex, an oral drug from Ethical Pharma, which is mainly found in pharmacies in the Dominican Republic. Anabolex is mainly composed of a mixture of 2 parts methandrostenolone (dianabol) and 1 part cytoheptadine hydrochloride (periactin), it is sold in 3 mg tablets (2 mg dianabol and 1 mg periactin).

Many of you will think that there is nothing interesting about Anabolex other than the “strange” presence of cytoheptadine. Only by knowing in detail the reason for this “strange” (obviously) related, it will be possible to realize its potential: not only the drug itself, but also the contribution that it can give the most attentive minds.
As already mentioned, the drug consists of methandrostenolone and cyproeptadine.
Methandrostenolone : As many of you know, Methandrostenolone (trade name Dianabol) [ 17a-methyl-17b-hydroxy-1,4-androstadien-3-one] is by far the most used (and overused) anabolic steroid along with testosterone. In circulation since the late 1950s, methandrostenolone has helped many athletes overcome muscle growth limitations. Among its characteristics we find methylation in C-17, which gives such characteristics of the molecule as:
- increased affinity of its metabolite methyloestradiol for estrogen receptors, which makes the compound much more estrogenic than testosterone; this largely explains the reason for its strong antigonadropic activity: a decrease in the level of free testosterone by 30-49% with the introduction of 20 mg for 10 days; its strong estrogenic activity also leads to a sharp proliferation of androgen receptors and an increase in IGF-1 synthesis;
- a significant decrease in the affinity for SHBG, which makes the molecule more biologically active;
- an increase in anticortisemic activity, which makes it similar to the reverse cortisol receptor and a 50-70% decrease in the level of free cortisol in the blood already at 20 mg per day for 10 days during the first weeks of intake, after which the ACTH rises to compensate .
With an anabolic / androgen ratio of 210/60 (although some report a 300/90 ratio) and due to the characteristics mentioned above, this molecule is very popular, as it is used on average at a dose of 5 mg every 11-12 kg of body weight body. But there is already enough information about this, so I will not go further.
In fact, what makes Anabolex “interesting” is not the usual methandrostenolone, but the addition of cytoheptadine hydrochloride (periactin).
Cyproheptadine: Cyproheptadine is a first generation antihistamine drug that also has anticholinergic, antiserotonergic and local anesthetic properties. The drug is used in various dermatological diseases and in the treatment of serotonergic syndrome. Usually prescribed for allergies, edema and urticaria or for the treatment of dangerous anaphylactic reactions, its possibilities are not limited to this.
In fact, cyproheptadine can also be very beneficial for those looking to gain weight and gain weight quickly due to its serotonin inhibiting activity. Hence, it increases the user’s appetite, allowing him to eat more food and do it more often.
The combination of methandrostenolone (Dianabol) and cyproheptadine hydrochloride makes Anabolex an important appetite stimulant. Dianabol is already known as an appetite-boosting molecule (like Boldenone, from which it comes), but when combined with periactin, an appetite increase is much more relevant. Thus, the use of the drug results in much more noticeable weight gain than using a single molecule (methandrostenolone).
Obviously, exponential weight gain is associated not only with muscle mass, but also with fat and water. For example, weight gains of 5, 10 and even 15 kg were recorded after 4-6 weeks, when using Anabolex this is a logical result, since more food is consumed and weight increases. > Of course, users also report increased strength (more food = more energy) and athletes with poor appetite manage to significantly increase their daily calorie intake.
We are all aware of the possible side effects of methandrostenolone: water retention, increased blood pressure, and gynecomastia, to name just a few.
Side effects of periactin are: dizziness, drowsiness, headache, nausea, diarrhea, abdominal pain, urinary retention, rash, thrombocytopenia, dysfunction in women is observed in the menstrual cycle, shortness of breath, hypotension, diplopia. In the literature, growth hormone (GH) suppression has been reported with doses of 8-12 mg cytoheptadine for 5 days. 
Currently, as mentioned above, Anabolex can be purchased in the Dominican Republic simply by contacting a pharmacy. Cost starting in 2010 is about $ 1 for three 3mg tablets. this part of the ocean “is practically nothing, but you can easily fix it: getting preactin from the pharmacy is not difficult.
You can combine it with Dianabol or any other AAS during the “Bulk” period. Ideal proportions are 1 mg of cyproheptadine per 5 mg of methandrostenolone; this would mean a total dose of 6 mg cyproheptadine per 30 mg methandrostenolone per day. Another combination that has proven to be very beneficial for gaining weight and mass is the combination of cyproheptadine with oxymetholone (Anadrol), which can induce loss of appetite, at a dosage of 8 mg.
Obviously, nothing prevents you from combining cycloheptadine with a cycle with injectable AAS.
A useful advice would be not to exceed 8 mg / day of cytoheptadine in order to avoid a possible suppressive effect on GH.
