Information about the drug
Anadrol is also known as Anapolone, a drug for oral use with the active component Oxymetholone. This product is an androgenic anabolic steroid (AAS). The drug was created in 1960 for the treatment of a number of diseases such as: anemia, osteoporosis, chronic exhaustion, to maintain muscle mass during the recovery period after surgery, to maintain body weight in bedridden patients.
Shortly after application in medicine, the main properties of the drug were evaluated in sports, it had characters that greatly improved the basic indicators of athletes, thereby improving their productivity.
A distinctive feature of this drug is that it has the property to influence on the hemoglobin production in red blood cells (erythrocytes). Hemoglobin is a protein that tends to connect oxygen and saturate body cells with it. Thus, getting more oxygen from each breath, using Anadrol athlete increases cell productivity by making the workout more productively and faster. As a result of this process, the athlete gets accelerated growth of muscle mass and increases the level of endurance.
Higher endurance level allows athlete to withstand strong loads longer, thereby allowing to train harder and longer.
Since Oxymetholone has excellent anabolic properties that increase pure testosterone three times, it becomes the great option for weight gaining, while its androgenic properties are lower than testosterone.
The method of application is presented for informational purposes only and is not a guide to action.
- Anapolon course can be prescribed to men over 21 years of age for an intensive set of muscle mass.
- The duration of the course of oxymetholone is 4-6 weeks. Do not take a course longer than 6 weeks, firstly, because the greatest results are observed during the first three weeks of the course, and secondly, due to possible toxicity to the liver.
- The maximum easily tolerated dosage of Anapolon is 100 mg per day. Firstly, because it has been proven that a larger increase in dosage does not lead to better results. Secondly, the risk of side effects of anapolone increases. The optimal dose for beginners is 50 mg per day. In this case, there are a number of regimens, daily dosages in which reach 200 mg. Taking the drug with a gradual increase in dosage makes sense only if there are concerns about its tolerance. Usually, the drug is taken in a stable dosage from the first to the last day of the course. A gradual reduction in dosage does not make practical sense.
- At the end of the course, rehabilitation therapy is performed. Start taking testosterone boosters and estrogen blockers (clomiphene, torimefen; you can not use tamoxifen, because it stimulates progestin receptors) for 3-4 weeks to restore the production of your own testosterone.
- To maximize the effectiveness of the course, take a complex of sports nutrition for gaining muscle mass and follow a diet for gaining muscle mass.
- Be sure to consult a specialist before taking oxymetholone.
Oxymetholone works well with some injectable drugs, but you should not combine it with 17-alpha alkylated steroids, as this will increase the load on the liver. Often Anapolon is used for the so-called “quick start” (the anabolic effect begins to manifest itself very quickly), providing significant gains in strength and body weight at the very early stages of the course, while other drugs in the stack gradually increase concentrations. Combination allows you to achieve a better effect, due to the fact that oxymetholone reduces the concentration of sex hormone-binding globulin, increasing the free fraction of other hormones, while it acts as a synergist for a very large number of drugs. Given that Anapolon has a low affinity for androgen receptors (it does not bind well), other highly androgenic hormones will be able to exert a full-fledged effect by interacting with these receptors without competition with anapolone.
- To gain muscle mass, anapolone is combined with Testosterone, Boldenone, Primobolan, but not with Nandrolone and Trenbolone, because this can lead to more pronounced progestin exposure.
- To increase strength, it is most often used with various esters of Testosterone. A very effective combination is the combination of Oxymetholone with a suspension of stanozolol, while athletes note a rapid increase in strength. But it is necessary to take into account the high injury risk of this combination, especially for people with chronic injuries.
- Oxymetholone is practically not used for drying and relief because of its ability to provoke a strong fluid retention.
- Competitive bodybuilders often use a single dose of 100-250 mg of Oxymetholone on the day they enter the scene. This gives fullness to the muscles of the athlete.
The 17-alpha-alkyl group in the structure of the drug allows you to bypass the liver without breaking down, but this makes Anapolon toxic to the liver.
It should also be noted that oxymetholone does not convert to estrogens, however, it can quite often cause accumulation of fluid in the body, gynecomastia, increase blood pressure and some others. It should be noted that oxymetholone has a relatively low progestin activity (in comparison with progestins: nandrolone and trenbolone). Therefore, in extreme cases, it is recommended to use prolactin blockers
In some cases (when using large doses), the drug can cause diarrhea, impair appetite, and cause mild nausea. Oxymetholone to a lesser extent than most steroids suppresses the production of testosterone.
