Anadrol (commonly called by athletes “A50” or “A-bombs”) was initially developed as a compound to help people with anemia, and has since been used very successfully to aid people who are suffering from many other diseases where weight loss is a

Arguably the most potent of all the oral steroids currently available, oxymetholone was first developed in 1960 as a treatment for anemias caused by deficient red blood cell production. Oxtmetholone’s ability to increase red blood cell count results from the enhanced syntehsis of erythropoietin (EPO) which in turn stimulates red blood cell production. Since Anadrol is also a very effective at stimulating muscle growth, other clinical uses include; HIV wasting syndrome, osteoporosis and as adjunct therapy
for underdeveloped or malnourshished patients.

As a drug used in athletics, oxymetholone has a reputation for fast, noticible gains in both strength and size making it particularly appealing for bulking cycles and/or strength contests. As a synthetic
derivitive of testosterone (specifically dihydrotestosternone), oxymetholone exhibits a postive effect on nitrogen balance in athletes who combine this drug with a high protein diet.

Side effects :

Hand-in hand with water retention, many users will also experience related side effects like, increased blood pressure, headaches, and back pumps. Increased liver enzymes is practically a given, as it will be with almost all oral steroids, and is certainly dose related.

Anadrol Dosage :

Male bodybuilders will often take 50-100mg of Anadrol per day for 4-8 weeks.

An effective dose for women looking to build muscle is 12.5-25mg per day for 4-6 weeks.

Due to Anadrol’s short half-life of 5-9 hours (21), doses should be split up and taken regularly throughout the day. Anadrol typically contains pills in 50mg doses, thus by using a pill cutter you can give yourself 2-4 doses each day.

Important: Anadrol pills are fat-soluble, therefore eating them with food may decrease their biological availability and hinder results. Thus, for best results take Anadrol on an empty stomach.The higher the dose, the more side effects a user will experience. Anything over 100mg per day will dramatically increase side effects, without much-added benefit in terms of results.
