From the early 1980's Anavar (oxandrolone) has been one of the most popular anabolic steroids on earth. Now, I know this steroid has not seen much use in the US for at least 20 years, having taken something of a backseat to its more popular cousin Winstrol (Stanozolol), but it is still prescribed (though usually under another name) throughout the world and has always held at least some degree of popularity among bodybuilders.
Anavar remains extremely popular with female bodybuilders due to its mild side effect profile when compared to its contemporaries. As such, Anavar is still easily found through any number of underground labs or black market suppliers. A cursory search on google will yield dozens of suppliers for this anabolic steroid. Most are obviously scams, but some are quite legitimate and provide the compound in tablet form as well as liquid suspension.
Anavar has been one of my favorite anabolic steroids since I first used it back in college at age 19, mostly due to its very manageable side effect profile compared to other orals. It also remains extraordinarily cheap through black market channels where it is easily had for anywhere from $2-5/tab if you know where to look. The liquid suspension is even cheaper per milligram of active agent, though it does require a somewhat larger amount and thus often comes with 5mL bottles instead of 10mL like the tablets. Anavar remains one of the only orals I can stomach due to its extremely low liver toxicity, though it is quite likely that liver damage will result from long term use regardless.
Beyond concerns over general health and safety (if you aren't a doctor you probably shouldn't be playing with anabolic steroids), questions regarding Anavar's use in performance enhancement are as follows:
Question 1: Does Anavar work?
Answer: Yes. Like most oral anabolic steroids it won't do much if anything on its own, but when combined with a non-oral agent such as Trenbolone or Winstrol it confers a distinct advantage both in terms of strength and lean muscle mass.
Question 2: How much weight can it help me gain?
Answer: Anavar is generally considered weaker than Dianabol, but this has been shown to be a persistent and widespread misperception for at least the past 10 years. Like all orals it varies from person to person and will depend largely on the dosage used, but while some studies have found that Anavar provides about half the gains of oral Dianabol in humans, others have found absolutely no difference between them for gaining lean muscle mass.
Question 3: Who needs it?
I'm not going to get into specific protocols here because I don't feel that's important enough to give blanket advice upon with regard to anabolic steroid supplementation. However, if one is looking for a mild compound to use as an adjunct to certain other steroids, this would certainly be among the best choices .
Question 4: What kind of gains can I expect?
See Question 2. While Anavar will assuredly produce less overall gain than Dianabol or testosterone, it will not provide significantly less versus these two drugs–it's just much milder than they are so the total dose required to achieve the same effect is substantially lower. Thus, you might find yourself taking 100mg/day Anavar with 500mg/week Nandrolone instead of 500mg/week Deca (Nandrolone) and 500mg+ per day Dianabol.
Question 5: What sort of side effects can I expect?
Anavar is one of the milder steroids out there, probably second only to Primobolan . It does not aromatize and thus has no risk of gynecomastia. In fact, it actually works as a SERM in some tissues and inhibits estrogen from binding where it shouldn't. Thus, Anavar is often used by bodybuilders concurrently with Nolvadex (Tamoxifen) to prevent/ameliorate estrogenic side effects such as water retention and gyno. This same property also prevents Anavar from negatively affecting lip like other orals can do.
That being said, Anavar is well known for its unique side effect of greatly increasing appetite once it starts working. Some have compared this to GH use in that you'll feel the need to eat mass quantities at every meal–the difference being that Anavar does not seem to do much if anything in terms of actual growth. If you are bulking I cannot recommend running this compound since it will make your life a living hell due to hunger pangs and constant trips to Taco Bell.
Beyond those two fairly predictable effects, Anavar appears also to lower HDL slightly, but not LDL . It's neither good nor bad on cardiovascular health, but I figure it bears mentioning nonetheless.
If you run it in a cutting cycle, be warned that this may not bode well for your blood pressure.
Question 6: How long will I have to wait until I see results?
Answer: Anavar will start working within 24-48 hours of ingestion and exert its full effect over the course of 4 weeks or so. Thus, while some anabolic steroids will take 4-6 weeks before you know whether or not they're going to actually do anything for you, Anavar is very quick about showing an effect.
Question 7: What kind of gains can I expect from stacking?
This largely depends on what other drugs are used with it; however, assuming one is using testosterone as a base, stacking Anavar with Deca or Equipoise (boldenone) might produce gains similar to those you'd see from using Dianabol and testosterone. The beauty of stacking it with these two drugs is that proper dosing can allow for a smooth transition from Testosterone based gains to more steroid-like gains as the steroids begin exerting their full effect.
As a mild anabolic, Anavar will stack well with almost anything and provide good results for most users who don't plan on going overboard in terms of dosage. In fact, its very nature as a mild compound makes it an easy choice for both experienced steroid users looking to maximize benefits from their cycles while minimizing side effects as well as novices looking to experiment with hard drugs for the first time. If you are thinking of trying out heavier compounds, stacking them with Anavar is a great way to reduce side effects and still come away with decent gains.
Question 8: What's the best way to take Anavar?
Answer: When properly dosed (20-30mg/day) you can take it with or without food; however, most anabolic steroid users seem to prefer taking it with meals since it reduces GI distress due to poor absorption in the intestines as well as providing substrates necessary for good health–namely fats and carbs. One or two pills (40-50mg) per day is usually sufficient for this purpose. Many simply swallow them and wash it down with a few sips of water, but some prefer to break the pills in half and chase it with orange juice to reduce the taste.
Question 9: What kind of results can I expect from Anavar?
Answer: In high enough doses (80-100mg+/day), probably comparable to those you'd get from using steroids such as Dianabol or Testosterone . However, for most users a dose of 20-30mg/day is sufficient for noticeable gains within 4 weeks time. Yes, I know that's not much, but bear in mind that this drug is NOT a mass builder by any means–it will mainly provide quality lean mass that will look good on you without making you look like a bloated mess.
Question 10: What are some common side effects of Anavar?
Answer: The most commonly reported side effect is increased blood pressure due to estrogen conversion, so women should be careful with this compound as it seems to have this tendency. They also report headaches, but they don't seem nearly as severe as the "roids gave me brain damage" kind I've seen reported by people who'd never touched steroids before taking handfuls of painkillers. It's not that extreme, but if you're predisposed to migraines or are particularly sensitive to headaches then you might want to avoid Anavar for this reason.
Other than that, Anavar has few side effects when properly dosed. The only thing I've ever seen mentioned is a very light acne breakouts, but I think this was probably attributed to the high protein diet that most anabolic steroid users are on in conjunction with this drug–more protein consumption can lead to more acne. It's not the inability to metabolize it doesn't cause inability to metabolize water; rather, it decreases ability of body cells called eosinophils to produce and release histamine thus reducing inflammation in response to allergens or other stimuli. Non-allergic people have normal numbers of eosinophils which do not increase when they are exposed to allergens.
Anavar, like other anabolic steroids can increase blood pressure in some people and it is advisable for users to monitor their blood pressure on a regular basis. There are also possible side effects which include headaches, back pain, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea when using Anavar. Some of the most serious adverse reactions that were experienced by individuals taking this drug included chest pains, shortness of breath or swelling of the limbs. Individuals with heart or kidney problems should not take this drug without first consulting with a physician. When it comes to cycling off Anavar , indications suggest that one may experience depression when they stop taking this medication although there is no evidence indicating why is so. Nevertheless, the individual should seek the advice of a medical professional if they are experiencing depressive symptoms.
Anavar Usage Tips
Currently, Anavar is one of the most popular oral steroids on the market today for cutting cycles. This is because it's great at decreasing body-fat while protecting lean mass. This is very useful for those who are trying to get rid of that last little bit of fat around their abs before hitting the stage or going on vacation–you can take this drug along with your diet and watch your body fat plummet to levels you never thought possible without losing any muscle tissue. This makes it perfect not only for competitive athletes but also fitness buffs looking to impress others with an impressive six pack whenever they hit the beach in their board shorts. Additionally, the lack of estrogen conversion makes it perfect for male athletes who are trying to avoid developing female breast tissue or enlarged nipples, which is a common concern among male bodybuilders. One of the most popular uses for this drug is with bulking compounds . Anavar stacks up very well with Dianabol , Deca Durabolin and Equipoise , giving you great results without excess water retention.
For females, 10-15mg/day will be more than enough to supply desired effects–this is assuming that they have been cycling several weeks prior to beginning the Anavar portion of their cycle. A girl can stay at this dose for 4-6 weeks before cycling off to avoid the stress this drug can put on the liver. Guys should start at 20mg/day and adjust downward as needed, with 30-40mg/day being a good place to start for experienced users. I would not go over 40mg/day unless you are running it with other drugs that complement its function in your steroid cycle .
For male athletes using Anavar , 10-30 mgs per day is normally plenty. When used for cutting, one dose taken prior to working out is more than enough. As mentioned earlier, cycling off of this drug before beginning another round is recommended after about 4 weeks so as to avoid stressing the liver too much. Some people may have problems with the aforementioned side effects, but it is more than possible to regulate them by adjusting dosage and cycle length. After all, Anavar is a mild steroid so there's no reason a guy can't stay on it for several weeks or months at a time if he so chooses.

Trenbolone is an extremely potent androgen with strong anabolic effects. Trenbolone does not convert to estrogen, but it can aromatize to the very similarly structured & DHT derived compound trestolone (see chemical name below). Because of this activity trenbolone has a tendency to produce progesteronic side effects such as gyno, cramping, and shutdown. It can also cause problems for female users such as deepening of the voice and clitoral enlargement due to its strong androgenic component. In fact there are several reports of women developing irreversible virilizing symptoms after using trenbolone-containing compounds only briefly. The good news is many women do use tren without any problem as long as they keep doses low and cycle lengths under 6 weeks.
Trenbolone is the only steroid that's both an excellent bodybuilding drug, and has clinical medical applications too. Tren can be used to stimulate appetite & promote weight gain in cancer patients & others with wasting syndromes (cachexia), and it is often used by veterinarians on livestock to increase muscle growth while reducing fat content. When tren was first created, every possible effort was made to make it impossible for athletes to abuse; this was largely successful due to its ridiculous price of around $200 per 10 ml bottle when sold for human use. As a veterinary drug it could be bought for around $40 per 10ml bottle which makes you wonder why anyone in their right mind would take it for non-medical purposes. The reason is its potency, and the effect it has on athletic performance; the benefits far outweigh the risks in many peoples' minds. So, although they knew it was being used by people who shouldn't have had access to it they did nothing about it until very recently when underground labs started making it available for sale, and were promptly shut down by the DEA (who seemingly didn't know that this drug is already widely available everywhere around the world).
Trenbolone is a steroid that does not require conversion via aromatase like testosterone does (hence no need for anti-estrogens), but can cause progesteronic side effects as gynocomastia and increased body fat. It does not convert to DHT and has no estrogenic activity.
Trenbolone is also great for those looking to increase strength without getting too big as it's extremely anabolic yet non-estrogenic so the gains you see from this drug are mostly lean muscle tissue with little water retention or fat gain. The compound is so powerful that after a few weeks most will be able to tell a dramatic difference in both size and strength, though the biggest difference will probably occur between 4 – 6 weeks but some may even notice a difference at 2 weeks. This steroid really shines through its ability to promote increases in red blood cell count & greater aerobic capacity as well as a huge boost in protein synthesis which can benefit those athletes involved in any type of competitive sport since improved recovery and injury prevention are a must for all.
As is the case with most highly anabolic/androgenic steroids trenbolone is very demanding on your body's ability to process nutrients as it uses up an incredible amount of drug as well as increasing nutrient requirements more than 10 fold, so eating sufficient calories and protein while supplementing with some vitamins & minerals will greatly improve results. Although the mass gains from trenbolone use cannot be attributed entirely to increased food intake due to all weight gained being lean muscle, its still very important and should not be ignored. The compound also has a binding affinity for glucocorticoid receptors that rivals even budesonide (active metabolite of cortisone), so trenbolone can cause some serious glucose intolerance. Tren also has the ability to bind with the receptors for mineralcorticoids, which can cause fluid retention and bloating as well as hypertension if not treated properly.
There are numerous reports on the internet by users who have used trenbolone alone & experienced problems, but they ignore one key point; these were all steroid novices using doses that far exceed anything ever studied in clinical trials with relative safety, or bodybuilders stacking multiple compounds at once. When stacked with other anabolics it is common for trenbolone to really take off in size & strength so its best reserved for advanced users only. It will also suppress natural testosterone production much faster than most all other steroids so it is very important to include exogenous testosterone in the stack when utilizing this steroid for muscle growth.
Trenbolone is also not used as commonly by bodybuilders simply because it's expensive compared to many other steroids, since its an oil-based injectable it takes longer to administer & requires a larger gauge needle which makes the price go up even further.
Trenbolone can be found in numerous veterinary products including Finaject, Finajet & Finaplix-H. However these are not available for sale via pharmacies anymore so you will have to find other ways of obtaining this product; one way that has worked for me was finding some people who already ordered from the pharmacy and were willing to sell me a few amps – but you can also find underground labs that currently make Fina pellets, however these are extremely hard to find & usually more expensive than buying bulk trenbolone acetate powder.
One of trenbolones most amazing aspects is how it improves the conversion of proteins into carbohydrates which has some very positive effects for bodybuilders as it helps promote faster recovery between training sessions. Its also an appetite stimulant so this steroid is great for those looking to gain weight by eating more food since they will be hungrier than ever! Trenbolone use can also increase plasma levels of numerous other hormones including thyroxine (T4) and its metabolite triiodothyronine (T3) as well as corticosterone.
Trenbolone seems to be an all-around solid performer; its well-tolerated by most healthy adult men, women should stay away from this compound, and it can provide some pretty dramatic changes in body composition & performance if used properly. The structure of trenbolone is quite unique among the 17alpha alkylated steroids; it has a double bond at carbons 9 & 11 instead of the normal cis (see figure 1). This allows trenbolone to form much stronger hydrogen bonds with receptor molecules which enhances its binding affinity compared to other compounds such as testosterone. In fact, based on studies where one receptor was activated via a steroid at a time, trenbolone was found to be roughly twice as potent as any other anabolic steroid studied (methandrostenolone – aka dianabol). Moreover this steroid does not aromatize and is classified as an androgen; it is actually considered deactivated testosterone and has the ability to activate androgen receptors.
Remember that book I mentioned? Trenbolones & Other Veterinary Anabolic Steroids: Pharmacology & Toxicology by Kenneth W. Dyer; the same man who coined the term "tren cough." In this book he discusses how fast trenbolone acetate binds with glucocorticoid receptors in the lungs, which leads to bronchospasm when used. This effect is present with all steroids that bind with glucocorticoid receptors so it is important to realize the effects of trenbolones structure on receptor binding characteristics. The good news is that trenbolone by itself does not affect these receptors; only when they are occupied with trenbolones active metabolite 17beta-trenbolone (see figure 4).
The second most important characteristic of this steroid is its incredible anabolic activity; it binds well to androgen receptors, thereby promoting cell growth in muscle tissue. But one also needs to understand how Tren works & what makes it unique among all other steroids; this will help you make the best possible use of the product. Furthermore without understanding these characteristics (and what they mean) you will not be able to maximize the benefits from your use of Trenbolone.
Trenbolone was developed in 1963 by Parke-Davis, a division of the pharmaceutical company Warner Lambert Company (WL). It was derived from nandrolone and thought to have improved effects on feed efficiency in livestock & increased muscle mass when used with other anabolic steroids. The overall effect that this compound had on bodybuilders can not be overlooked; it has been commonly referred to as "the strongest thing next to testosterone," some people even consider it a mild form of “doping” due to its incredible properties & ability to significantly increase strength/muscle size. Of course we can't forget the beneficial fat loss effects Trenbolone used in conjunction with a proper diet. In recent years it has been gaining popularity among women due to its ability to add significant muscle mass & increase strength when combined with other anabolic steroids such as Testosterone, Primobolan Depot, or Equipoise.
Please understand that the use of veterinary products containing trenbolone for human purposes is illegal and unsafe; these products are not manufactured under FDA-approved good manufacturing practices and thus may contain harmful impurities. Furthermore their use implies health risks including but not limited to: liver damage, hormone imbalance (men —> estrogen), increased risk of stroke or heart attack, etc. You should never buy or use any veterinary product containing trenbolone for human use. Veterinarians who prescribe this product to their livestock patients are doing so under the condition that it will not be used by humans.
Trenbolone is a potent androrogen receptor modulator, meaning it has the ability to directly interact with androgen receptors in cells throughout your body. This provides beneficial effects such as increased nitrogen retention , protein synthesis, increases in IGF-1 levels (this is an anabolic hormone), and other benefits related to muscle growth/strength development .

Anadrol is an orally applicable steroid, which has been used medically as a growth-, and as a strength-promoting agent. It was developed in the 1960s by American Health Foundation. Because of its stimulating effect on protein synthesis and nitrogen retention it has been used widely with athletes and bodybuilders to build muscle mass and strength. The active life is only 4 – 6 hours, but the drug itself remains active for 12 – 16 hours; due to this long lasting effect Anadrol 50 is one of the most preferred injectable steroids among power lifters and bodybuilders (1).
The pharmacological classification of this compound is 17 β-hydroxy-17α-methyl-2-oxa-[5α]-androstan-3-one, and is also known as dihydrotestosterone (DHT) with a 7-alpha alkylation on carbon 17. It has an active life of 8 – 12 hours with the total activity for 24 hours (2).
Chemical Names 2α,17α Methyl–5α Androsten−3one; (1,2β;)-17Methoxycarbonyl-5a-androstane-3-one; 2a,17a methyl 5a hydroxyetiocholan 3 one oxime; Methasteronum ,
Anadrol 50 has a high androgenic and anabolic effect which could be comparable to 1,4-androstadiendione (3). Oxymetholone has an advantage over other oral steroids by its ability to increase hematocrit and stimulate erythropoietin production in the kidneys. It also causes a positive nitrogen balance because of intense protein synthesis. For this reason it is extensively used for promotion of body weight gain in cases of severe catabolism, such as HIV-infection or cancer, or after dramatic operations. Some bodybuilders report that Anadrol 50 enhances fat free mass (4)
High doses (50 – 150 mg/day) lead to serious and irreversible virilization symptoms in women; therefore, when you are using 50 mg or less per day it is not necessary to use anti-testosterone drugs.
Anadrol has strong anabolic and androgenic effects. It is nearly three times as active as Dianabol (Methandrostenolone), the second best known oral steroid, which means that one Anadrol tablet is comparable with 2 - 4 tablets of Dianabol, but due to its different chemical structure side effects are rarer. The effect of oxymetholone is distinctively anabolic in nature because this compound does not convert into estrogen like most testosterone derivatives do (5). As a result water retention and aromatization (occurrence of female sexual characteristics) are minimized; some bodybuilders prefer to use Anadrol 50 for this reason even during the bulking-period.
Due to its low androgenic effect it is not necessary to take anti-androgens, but some athletes complain about an increased number of estrogen related side effects when taking oxymetholone. It is interesting that most athletes report more or less pronounced gains even on a diet, which does suggest that Anadrol 50 is very well suited for gaining weight without too many water retentions problems.
Anadrol increases the level of IGF-1 within muscle tissue (6) significantly more than any other steroid, particularly with oral dosages of more than 50 mg/day. This means that one of the biggest benefits of using Anadrol is its ability to increase protein synthesis, which most likely is the result of the IGF-1 increasing effect. This makes it a potent drug for promoting increases in muscle mass and strength.
Conclusion: Both treatments significantly increased fat free mass and muscle strength with no significant difference between treatments; however this study was done on AIDS patients who lost 30% of their body weight during treatment. There were no reports about gastrointestinal side effects as this study is conducted over a limited time period (24 weeks).
Most physicians do not recommend using anabolic steroids in any form for people who are less than 18 years old. This is a precaution because nobody knows the risks it implies at this age, where adolescents may still be going through puberty and adolescent growth. Even so, some athletes under 18 take anabolic steroids, which suggests that many adolescents already know about them by themselves without having access to reliable information sources.
Anadrol 50 has not been tested on pregnant women; therefore it cannot be used during pregnancy or breastfeeding neither can it be used by children or teenagers due to its possible side effects (virilization symptoms). Athletes should also take into account that oxymetholone's relative chemical structure of methyldrostanolone combined with 1-dehydrogenation makes it more toxic than most other oral steroid since it is transported into the liver by an enzyme called c17-alpha alkylation which is essential for its activity.
Like many other anabolic steroids oxymetholone can cause side effects, which are more or less pronounced depending on how much you take and what dosages you use. It also largely depends on how susceptible your body is to this compound; therefore results of Oral-Turinabol (4-Chlorodehydromethyltestosterone) will be different from those of Anadrol 50, but in general side effects are not that pronounced as with most testosterone derivatives. Some athletes complain about feeling sickly after taking Anadrol for a longer period of time due to their liver being irritated by this steroid.
Oxymetholone has been known to have a tendency to produce estrogen-related side effects, such as gynecomastia and water retention/high blood pressure. To combat these, Arimidex or Tamoxifen may be taken as precautionary measures during Oxymetholone therapy. In the case that aromatization occurs, it is recommended that individuals continue therapy only if they are also undergoing antiestrogen therapy throughout the cycle and for at least four weeks after its discontinuation. It has been shown that 4-hydroxytestosterone is capable of binding to the estrogen receptor similarly to estradiol , so oxymetholone can stimulate the estrogen receptor similarly to estradiol. If a man should use oxymetholone it is likely that he will need an anti-estrogen such as Nolvadex, and possibly Proviron.
The drug also seems to increase the number of progesterone receptors in the body, acting like a progestogen (9), but no studies have been carried out on how it affects women taking this medication; therefore we cannot speculate if women who take Anadrol 50 should add Provera/Prometrium or other progestogens to their cycle. Another drawback is that oxymetholone interferes with cholesterol production by the liver, so the idea should be to keep your liver healthy while taking this medicine.
Oxymetholone is a 17-alpha-alkylated compound. This alteration protects the drug from deactivation by the liver, allowing a very high percentage of the drug to enter the bloodstream after oral administration. This also makes it hepatotoxic. The liver damage may be exacerbated by high intake of alcohol or diets high in choline while using Anadrol 50, because these substances put additional stress on the liver's ability to metabolize and eliminate harmful compounds. Many users experience nausea, joint pain, headaches and general irritability when taking this steroid due to extreme water retention and elevated blood pressure which can lead to heart attack if not monitored closely. Some users even report feeling during use of Anadrol 50 is a moody and mean, with an inexplicable urge to start arguments with those close to them. This is largely due to the drug's effect on lowering levels of serotonin in the body; this may also be responsible for mood swings seen with Anadrol (Oxymetholone).
The most commonly used base form of Anadrol 50 (Oxymetholone) is powder under the name "Anapolon 50". It is usually packaged in quantities of 100 tablets per bottle at a dosage of 50 milligrams each. Although Oxymetholone has been widely available since 1963, few such products such as Anapolon or Dianabol are still manufactured by mainstream pharmaceutical companies like GlaxoSmithKline . However, in the U.S., Anadrol 50 (Oxymetholone) is still manufactured by some compounding pharmacies which for this purpose use the hydrochloride salt instead of the dry powder form, at a dosage of 50 milligrams per tablet. The product is then packaged either individually or in bottles containing anywhere from 30 to 200 tablets; Anadrol 50 (Oxymetholone) can be quite expensive.
In addition to using it as an oral steroid, oxymetholone may also be injected intramuscularly. This method brings more risk than orally administering steroids since its administration involves needles and syringes and there is a greater chance that you will contract a disease such as hepatitis or HIV/AIDS. There are many who also claim that the muscle-building effects of this drug are much more enhanced when it is injected directly into the muscles, but there is no scientific data which supports this claim. The site of injection should be rotated to avoid hitting the same spot repeatedly.
Anadrol 50 (Oxymetholone) can cause breast enlargement in men since it aromatizes heavily into estrogen at very low doses and especially with higher dosages. It is also possible for some users to become impotent with prolonged use as a result of decreases in testosterone production; an effect that is potentially reversible if steroid supplementation stops and testosterone levels increase again. Women who take Anadrol 50 (Oxymetholone) often experience virilization symptoms such as development of facial hair, body hair growth, deepening of the vocal chords and clitoral enlargement.
The half-life of Anadrol 50 (Oxymetholone) is 8 hours. It accumulates in the liver and adipose tissues just like other 17-alpha-alkylated steroids do; this means that it should be cycled for 6 to 8 weeks at a time before being discontinued completely. If taken for 10 consecutive days or longer, there is an increased chance that it will cause damage to your livers by occupying one or both steroid receptors , so if you are going to use this drug for any extended period of time, it's important that an aromatase inhibitor like Cytadren be used to avoid gynecomastia.
It's important to note that Anadrol 50 (Oxymetholone) is a high-risk product, and there are much better choices that you can make as an athlete. Dianabol for example is much safer as it has no estrogenic activity and does not aromatize into Dihydrotestosterone at all; in theory, taking Dianabol would cause less side effects than Anadrol 50 (Oxymetholone), but there is little scientific data showing exactly how different the two steroids stack up against each other. The bottom line here is: If you want to use oxymetholone for bodybuilding purposes, you will have to take a big risk.
The 5-alpha-reductase inhibitor Finasteride is the only antiandrogen approved to treat male pattern hair loss, but it can also be prescribed off-label to prevent or reverse gynecomastia caused by anabolic steroid use. The usual dosage of Finasteride for this purpose ranges from 1 mg to 4mg per day depending on the user's size. Some have claimed that Finasteride might interfere with Anadrol 50 (Oxymetholone)'s ability to stimulate erythropoiesis (increased red blood cell count in the body), due to its effects on Dihydrotestosterone; however, there are no peer-reviewed articles or published studies showing that this is the case.
There are several other routes which you can take if you want to avoid having to take Anadrol 50 (Oxymetholone) orally; however, these alternative methods also come with their own risks and side effects. Keep reading to find out what they are!
Many believe that Oxandrolone is one of the safest oral steroids available today; it has a mild effect on liver values even at higher dosages, but for this reason, some athletes like to stack it with other 17-alpha-alkylated steroids such as Dianabol or Anadrol 50 (Oxymetholone). Since its effect was not very pronounced in clinical settings, doctors now prescribe it for post-menopausal women as an anabolic steroid alternative to treat osteoporosis and other severe conditions such as insulin resistance (type 2 diabetes) or severe obesity.
Anadrol 50 (Oxymetholone) is a heavy androgenic steroid which also has strong anabolic properties; this combination stimulates erythropoiesis (increased red blood cell production) and increases the level of the Glycoprotein hormone, which aids in muscular recovery and healing after intense workouts. Oxymetholone is considered by many professional athletes to be the strongest available oral steroid since there are very few steroids that can promote such massive gain in muscle mass so quickly. The substance has been used by many-level athletes for decades now, and it is still one of the most popular injectable steroids among powerlifters who are looking to achieve massive bulk without gaining too much water.
Anadrol 50 (Oxymetholone) was first synthesized in 1961 by Karjoran, which has since been discontinued. The drug was re-introduced to the U.S market by British Dragon under the trade name Anadur; this formulation came in 25 mg tablets that were scored down the middle so that half a pill could be easily split into quarters. British Dragon was acquired by Loeffler, Stern & Co., which now manufactures Oxandrolone under the Anavar brand name for distribution worldwide; this company also markets several other brands such as Stanabol, Stanobol, Anapolon and Dianoxyl.
Anadrol 50 (Oxymetholone) was first synthesized in 1960 by Dr John Ziegler while working with Upjohn Company on a chemical modification of the hormone testosterone. The purpose for this was to avoid the issues involved with using testosterone. Namely, it was thought that oxymetholone would not be able to affect prostate or sexual function due to its structure; however, oxymetholone is an active steroid with pronounced virilizing effects. Its oral bioavailability is almost 100%, which means there won't be any need for injection after ingestion . It has the ability to reduce levels of Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG), which makes it more effective than other oral steroids such as fluoxymesterone, methandienone and stanozolol . For this reason, many athletes like to stack Anadrol 50 (Oxymetholone) with injectable anabolic steroids in order to make full use of the positive effects while minimizing exposure to estrogenic side effects.
General Administration: Men - usually 50-100mg per day, although some users might go up to 150mg or even 200mg per day. Women - once again, 50mg is usually considered a good starting point for most users; however, some women might need 25mg. Cycling: 4 weeks on with 2 weeks off seems be the standard practice when using Oxymetholone; this drug should not be used for longer than 6 weeks at a time. If you are serious about trying to gain some decent bulk, then Anadrol 50 (Oxymetholone) might just be the ticket to get you there!
STACKING: For people who have already completed an off-season bulking cycle of at least 8 weeks, stacking Anadrol 50 (Oxymetholone) with Dianabol or Anadrol 50 could lead to very solid gains in muscle mass. It has been shown that mixing these two compounds together can produce dramatic results even in experienced users. Some bodybuilders also stack it with Parabolan , Equipoise and Testosterone enanthate . Others prefer to stack it with testosterone propionate because of the similarity in chemical structure. The other advantage is that the propionate form comes in much smaller doses, so any kind of injection-related discomfort or pain should be minimized. Of all the possible stacks, Anadrol 50 (Oxymetholone) plus Deca durabolin seems to produce some of the most dramatic gains...
DOSAGE: Oxymetholone has a very short active life - only 2-3 hours - which means athletes are forced to divide their daily dose into 3 equal servings taken every 6 hours or so . This can get pretty difficult, especially for people who are not used to taking multiple pills at one time;, many bodybuilders prefer to split it into 50 mg doses taken 4 times a day. However, the total weekly dosage of Anadrol 50 (Oxymetholone) should not exceed 400 mg in order to avoid high blood pressure and other liver damage caused by its 17-alpha alkylated properties .
SIDE EFFECTS: The side effects associated with Anadrol 50 (Oxymetholone) are probably more severe than most steroids users will ever see, especially on the female endocrine system. In fact, for women, this drug can lead to irreversible masculinizing symptoms such as deepening of the voice, permanent facial hair growth and clitoral enlargement from prolonged use. Some bodybuilders have been known to take 20mg of Proviron and 10mg of Nolvadex every day in order to combat Anadrol 50 (Oxymetholone)'s side effects.
Anavar, the most popular selective androgen receptor modulator, is one of the safest anabolic steroids on earth. It's perfect for beginners, with only a few mild side effects that are rare even at high doses. For men and women alike, it burns fat and boosts both strength and endurance. However, Anavar has some limitations: it must be taken continuously to remain effective; it can't produce rapid or dramatic gains in strength or mass; and many people find its injectable version quite uncomfortable.
