General information about Anadrol in the US and the UK
Anadrol (oxymetholone) - an anabolic androgenic steroid, which is second in the field of bodybuilding, most likely, only Dianabol (methandrostenolone). In addition, it takes a particularly important role in medicine, particularly for the treatment of anemia, as well as to maintain muscle mass in HIV-infected patients in recent years. While many have a subjective opinion that from the point of view of side effects of Anadrol is severe, medical practice, as well as the experience of many athletes shows that this is not the case.
Another interesting topic is the question Anadrol combination with other anabolic steroids. For example, at a daily dose of 50 mg Dianabol, and Anadrol reception More practically does not give additional advantages. On the contrary, the inclusion of Anadrol in a course consisting of 50-100 mg of trenbolone acetate per day or 60-80 mg Anavar (oxandrolone) a day, will bring much more tangible results. This AnadrolВ® Dianobol very similar to, but not trenbolone. This is probably because, unlike trenbolone, oxymetholone binds to androgenic receptors in a very small extent and mainly its anabolic effect is not likely to be mediated through AR.
As for the severe side effects that are sometimes seen bodybuilders, they appear mostly or exclusively in the case where the estrogen level is increased. Although oxymetholone itself aromatizing and has no estrogenic activity, it is possible that it could affect the metabolism of estrogen. Regardless of whether it is or not cause problems, with appropriate control estradiol Anadrol side effects are not much different from other oral anabolic steroids. The level of estradiol can be controlled either using aromatase inhibitors such as letrozole or Arimidex, or limiting the use of aromatizing steroids such as testosterone.
The main side effect of Anadrol, like any other alkylated oral anabolic steroid is liver toxicity. This problem can be overcome by limiting the duration of use Anadrol for no more than 6-8 weeks, then stop taking the drug at the end of the course. Because the liver is restored quickly, the rest period must be at least half of the period during which the drug is taken. However, a conservative and preferred approach, a rejection of the drug for a period equal to the duration of the course Anadrol.
Milligram per milligram AnadrolВ® apparently less toxic to the liver than any other alkylated anabolic steroid, but in terms of anabolic, in calculating the ratio of toxicity and anabolic effects, it is flush with the others.
Other side effects are not different from those observed when taking almost all of anabolic steroids and include, inter alia, a possible increase in blood pressure and / or hematocrit, deterioration of blood lipid profile and prostate enlargement, which may be temporary. It is also possible occurrence of acne and increased hair loss, if there is a genetic predisposition for male pattern baldness.
A typical daily dosage in the US and the UK of 50-150 mg. In some cases, are used in more massive doses up to 300 mg per day, but when properly compiled to date, in combination with other anabolic steroids, the additional benefit of receiving doses greater than 150 mg per day, will be a little.
Although there is a perception in the bodybuilding environment that Anadrol - is even more harmful drug for women than any other anabolic steroid, in fact it is the opposite. From a medical point of view, a single daily dose of 50 mg for a long period causes only a moderate degree of masculinization. The same can not be said about Anavar, Dianabol or Winstrol (stanozolol). Although by today's standards, it is not always sufficient for women, speakers at the professional bodybuilding competition, this dose is actually much larger than necessary for most women to achieve excellent results in increasing muscle mass, fat loss, and improve the body as a whole. Half of this dose, ie, 25 mg per day, preferably broken into several smaller ones - this is a very effective and, as far as I know, the least risky way to get a benefit from the anabolic steroids.
