Anadrol Introduction

Anadrol (Oxymetholone) is commonly knows as one of the most powerful oral anabolic steroids in existence. First brought to the market by Syntex in the 1960’s for medical uses, including treating muscle and weight wasting diseases, its popularity quickly grew. Due to its effects on increasing red blood count in humans, its also been used medically to treat anaemia. Anadrol is also often referred to as Anadrol 50. Anadrol is a Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) related oral steroid in the same group as other androgens such as, Anavar, Winstrol and Primobolan. Known to be a powerful mass building oral anabolic steroids, Anadrol behaves like no other anabolic steroids in terms of how it interacts with the estrogen receptor, but doesn’t aromatase. Oxymetholone can still cause side effects including, gyecomastia, but its ability to add mass to the users frame are what sets it apart from other anabolic steroids.

Anadrol Doses and Administration

Anadrol has an anabolic rating of 320 with androgenic rating of 45 making it a powerful addition to any mass gaining cycle. On paper Anadrol is just over 3x more anabolic than Testosterone. Anadrol used medically was dosed at around 1-3mg per kg of bodyweight, which is a similar Anadrol dosage used now by steroids users. Due to the amount of mass Anadrol can put on ones frame, including water retention and possible a small amount of added fat mass depending on the steroid users nutritional approach, Anadrol is dosed at between 50-100mg every day. More experienced steroid users will run more, with advanced bodybuilders hitting 100-150+mg every day. Androl will increase the amount of extracellular water the user holds; increase nitrogen retention and protein synthesis, vastly increasing strength. Due to the toxicity of Adrol, larger dosages will cause more severe side effects so its suggested the Anadrol usage is limited to no longer than 6-8 weeks without a rest or pause of use.

Anadrol Cycles and Uses

Anadrol is an oral anabolic sterids that is from the DHT derived family. DHT’s usually increase the steroid users sex drive and labdio, but this doesn’t often mean they can be used along. Much like all anabolic steroids, Anadrol will cause an inhibition of endogenous testosterone when its used, even at low doses. This means it should not be used alone, but part of a bigger well planned steroid cycle. Due to its ability to suppress the steroid users own natural testosterone, a synthetic replacement Testosterone dosage should at least be used. A compound like Testosterone Enanthate, Sustanon, Testosterone Propionate or Testosterone Cypionate should be combined with Anadrol use in an Anadrol cycle for best and most optimal results.

Anadrol cycle example (10 weeks cycle time)

Weeks 1-10:

  • Testosterone Enanythate at 500mg/wk

Weeks 1-5:

  • Anadrol 50mg/day

Anadrol cycle example (12 weeks cycle time)

Weeks 1-12:

  • Sustanon 500mg at 500mg/wk
  • Deca-Durabolin at 400mg/wk

Weeks 1-5:

  • Anadrol 50mg/day

Anadrol cycle example (8 weeks cycle time)

Week 1-8:

  • Testosterone Propionate 100mg/day
  • Anadrol 50mg/day
  • NPP 50mg/day

These are merely Anadrol cycle examples but also include the necessary Testosterone and other anabolic steroids for an added synergistic effect for mass or cutting phases. These cycle examples do not contain an aromatase inhibitor, which we recommend, such as, Aromasin at 10mg/day or Arimidex at 0.5mg every other day. This will help limit estrogenic side effects whilst Tamoxifen (Nolvadex) should be kept on hand in case of the more problematic side effects Anadrol use can bring, including gynecomastia. Unfortunately, oral steroids cannot be used for extended periods due to their toxicity on the body. As well as being liver toxic, Anadrol can cause adverse side effects on lipids (cholesterol) and the kidneys, as well as raising bloog pressure and resting heart rate. Larger Anadrol doses will cause more side effects.

Anadrol Side Effects

Anadrol is a 17-alpha-alkylated oral anabolic steroid much like, Dianabol and Winstrol. There use needs to be controlled and for a limited time other side effects can worsen or build with time. Steroids side effects that may not be apparent in a couple of days or weeks of use can become apparent if the steroid user doesn’t take a break. These more serious Anadrol side effects are cholesterol problems, blood pressure, liver and kidney stress. Anadrol is also known to cause headaches in some users as well a acne in others. Although Anadrol cannot convert to estrogen via the aromatase enzyme, it can still cause estrogenic side effects by interacting with the estrogen receptor directly. Gynecomastia, acne and mood swings can prove evident in Anadrol users and harder to control. Anadrol can also be used with no or little side effects, the dosing of the compound and how long its used will often determine which side effects will be associated with Anadrol use or how severe this side are. As with any anabolic steroids, oral or injectable, if side effects appear lower the dose or stop use. Seek a physicians guidenece when possible and monitor your blood to see how your organs are effected and processing.
