Oxymetholone is used for debilitating geriatric diseases. It is also used for various diseases which cause muscular atrophy and weight gain. It is an anabolic steroid which is available under the brand name of Anadrol or Anadrol 50. When compared to other oral anabolic steroids, Oximetolona (Oxymetholone) has maximum potency. However, it is known to be equal to Dianabol. Anabolic steroids like Dianabol have been used by athletes for many years. Other synthetic compounds or anabolic steroids are considered to be dangerous. Even other steroids are classified as DHT anabolic steroids like Anavar, Primobolan, Winstrol, and Masteron. Oxymetholone retains the anabolic rating of 320, which is three times more potent than testosterone. In the 1990s, there was fear of using steroids and the drug vanished from the markets in the United States. Despite that, Anadrol was re-established Unimed Pharmaceuticals in 1998. It is further used to treat patients who have HIV/AIDS.
Dosage and Cycle
In the beginning, the steroid was available in 2.5, 5, and 10 mg tablets. The dosage was 2.5 mg thrice a day. It has been restricted in the present day and can be bought only for treating anemia. Owing to this, the Anadrol 50 was made, which contains Oxymetholone to 50 mg in a single tablet. The dosage of Oximetolona depends upon the cycle, the individual and the purpose of taking it. The drug produces the results in a certain period of time. The dose-response happens in a quick period of time. When taken on a dosage of 50 mg, the steroid gives good better results. A person can experience even better results when using 100 mg. The 50 mg of drug is not that impressive when compared to 100 mg which gives lean muscles and fat loss in a quick time. It has to be taken for a certain cycle. However, taking it in a higher dose is not recommended and can be toxic. Oxymetholone tablets can also be added to the cutting cycle especially by bodybuilders.
Effects and Side-Effects
Oxymetholone is also used in treating anemia. It accelerates the production of hemoglobin and red blood cells. It cures osteoporosis and fights infection. The steroid is a derivative of DHT or dihydrotestosterone. Anadrol 50 is altered dihydrotestosterone. Anadrol also decreases the androgenic potency levels when compared to testosterone. Apart from being a derivative of DHT, Anadrol increases the levels of estrogenic activity. It converts into estrogen and leads to estrogenic effects. The process is done through the aromatase enzyme. The drug is popular for treating various ailments like bloating, water retention, and gynecomastia. It helps to give estrogenic effects way before getting converted into estrogen. One should know that despite being a derivative of DHT, Anadrol does not help in providing lean and hard muscles. It has the alkylated C17 alpha which successfully passes through the liver without getting destroyed. However, it is known to be extremely hepatotoxicity and is chemically induced for the damage of the liver. The C17 alpha alkylation makes it resistant to the breakdown of the liver. Since the substance is known to be a hepatic rupture, it can lead to severe toxicity. It also puts pressure and stress on the liver. Anadrol is considered one of the most oral anabolic steroid which has maximum liver toxicity.
