When T-bol was first re-introduced to the market about a decade ago, it was fairly pricey, being sold for as much as $10 per 10 mg pill. This prevented many BB’rs from administering an effective dose for any reasonable period of time, so most chose to use other orals instead. Fortunately, the price of many raw materials has dropped significantly in recent years, leading to an increase in availability and dramatically reduced prices. I have seen UGL’s offering legitimate versions of T-bol for as little as $1 per 10 mg pill when purchased in bulk, making this hard to obtain steroid affordable to all. Oddly, even with lower prices and easy sourcing, it did not grow in popularity as much some thought it would. Some UGL’s have even dropped the steroid from their product list due to lack of demand. I believe this is primarily due to ineffective advertising and a lack of public awareness. If you find yourself repeatedly using the same orals over and over again and want to try something new, you might want to consider giving T-bol a shot.
Why mention all this? First, this history has created a mystique, whether warranted or not. And second, it has provided us with a great deal of toxicological information. Last, one should be sure that if choosing the drug, the decision is not simply from the mystique. Being the old East German doping drug of choice should be irrelevant to whether an athlete or bodybuilder should choose it today. Instead it should be considered in terms of its positive and negative effects. Among available anabolic steroids, OT offers nothing outstanding here, though it’s certainly usable.
