Usage: a synthetic male hormone (androgen or anabolic steroid) used to
treat a low red blood cell count (anemia). It works by increasing
the amount of the hormone (erythropoietin) involved in the
production of red blood cells.

Anadrol (oxymetholone) is most likely second only to Dianabol
(methandrostenolone) as a bodybuilding anabolic steroid.
Additionally, it has had considerable medical importance
particularly for treatment of anemia, and more recently to help
maintain lean body mass in HIV-compromised patients.
Oxymetholone, marketed as Anadrol and Anapolon, is a synthetic
anabolic steroid developed in 1960 by Zoltan 'Anadrol Z' F. Its
primary clinical applications include treatment of osteoporosis and
anaemia, as well as stimulating muscle growth in malnourished or
underdeveloped patients. The drug was approved for human use by the
FDA. Later, non-steroidal drugs such as epoetin alfa were developed
and proven to be more effective as a treatment for anaemia and
osteoporosis without the side effects of oxymetholone. The drug
remained available despite this and eventually found a new use in
treating HIV wasting syndrome. Presented most commonly as a 50 mg
tablet, oxymetholone is one of the strongest androgenic steroids
adding Anadrol to 50 mg/day of Dianabol gives little added benefit
to a steroid cycle; in contrast, adding Anadrol to 50-100 mg/day
trenbolone acetate or 60-80 mg/day Anavar (oxandrolone) gives
dramatic improvement. In this its stacking behavior is similar to
that of Dianabol, but not to that of trenbolone. Likely this is
because unlike trenbolone, oxymetholone does not bind strongly to
the androgen receptor, and most of its anabolic effect is likely
not genomically mediated via the AR
The tearing of pectoral and biceps tissue is commonly associated
with heavy lifting while massing up on heavy androgens. There is
such a thing as gaining too fast. Pronounced estrogen trouble also
puts the user at risk for developing gynecomastia. Individuals
sensitive to the effects of estrogen, or looking to retain a more
quality look, will therefore often add Nolvadex to each cycle.
This medication should not be used if you have certain medical
conditions. Before using this medicine, consult your doctor or
pharmacist if you have: breast cancer (males), breast cancer with
high blood calcium levels (females), prostate cancer, severe kidney
disease, severe liver disease.
It may take up to 6 months of using this medicine before your
symptoms improve. Tell your doctor if your symptoms do not improve
after 3 months of treatment.
While it’s common for bodybuilders to suspect that Anadrol would be
an even riskier choice for use by women than most anabolic
steroids, actually the reverse is true. Medically, once per day
dosing of 50 mg/day over extended periods has shown only a moderate
rate of virilization problems. The same certainly cannot be said of
Anavar, Dianabol, or Winstrol (stanozolol.) While not necessarily
sufficient for high level female bodybuilding competition by
today’s standards, such a dose actually is considerably more than
needed by most women for excellent results in adding muscle, losing
fat, and generally improving their physiques. Half this dose — 25
mg/day, preferably taken as divided doses — is very effective and
is so far as I know the lowest-risk way to obtain this degree of
benefit from anabolic steroids.
Even 12.5 mg/day in divided doses can be remarkably effective.
