Oxymetholone – this is one of the most powerful oral anabolic steroids, which are at our disposal today. The history of the drug begins in the distant 1960, when the drug Anadrol Oxymetholone actively used for therapeutic purposes. It was used to treat severe forms of anemia, diseases of muscle tissue. Later, he begins to be actively used by representatives of the world of sports to gain muscle mass. Steroid really gives a good result, but in large doses is very toxic to the liver.
Those who start Oxymetholone course can really expect significant gains in muscle mass, but for the most part it will depend on the amount of food that you consume during the cycle. Athletes who adhere to a serious diet can expect to gain up to 20 pounds a week, but with persistent training process can be achieved and 30 pounds.
Oxymetholone is also a positive effect on the increase in the indicators of strength and endurance, but the effect of the drug is not expressed as clearly as gain additional muscle relief. If intelligently combine the drug with other anabolic steroids, this tandem can give excellent performance as an increase in weight and an increase in indicators of strength and endurance. It should be noted that this drug is not recommended for use on an independent course. Plus to the above positive effects, Oxymetholone can show excellent results in the burning of excess fat cycles. Typically, these qualities are actively using steroid bodybuilders. Despite the fact that Oxymetholone is known for its quality, delay in the body excess fluid, the process is easy enough to manage. Many athletes use this property of the drug in the final phase of the cycle, shortly before the event to give his body more additional volume. However, those athletes who are prone to a significant excess of water in the body, should not take the drug just before a competition because they can lose a minimum relief and appear before judges in bad shape.
Like other anabolic steroids, Oxymetholone can cause a number of negative side effects, the most obvious of which is to delay the excess fluid in the body. The amount of excess water may become so significant that, during the training process athlete will feel unpleasant pain, especially in the lumbar region. Another no less common side effect – it is high blood pressure. If we talk about such manifestations as gynecomastia, and acne, they appear very often, important not to take counterfeiting, and drug quality. But such effects as delay of excess fluid and increase in blood pressure, it is easy to remove if you take aromatase inhibitors on the course. However, those athletes who initially have problems with blood pressure, need to recognize that Oxymetholone is not the best choice for them.
As mentioned above, the steroid sufficiently negative effect on the liver and increases its parameters enzymes. Therefore, the average duration of Oxymetholone should not exceed 6 weeks. Those athletes who had never taken anabolic preparations should begin with a cycle of 4 weeks duration. And despite the fact that it is quite a small duration of the course, remember that Oxymetholone – this is one of the few steroids, which do not increase their positive effect on increasing the duration of the course. In order to achieve a good anabolic result 6 weeks will be sufficient. The course of more than 6 weeks, will not give you anything except for the additional load on the liver. The only consolation the fact that all the indicators of liver enzymes, which have been changed, will come back to normal at the end of the cycle. In order to reduce the load on the liver in the course of the steroid it is recommended to limit consumption of alcoholic beverages and various drugs.
Like all anabolic steroids, Oxymetholone will suppress the natural production of testosterone by the body, so there is a need for additional reception of the substance. But this need not be afraid, because testosterone – it is one of the most versatile steroid that brings great majority of healthy men. And when using the tandem Oxymetholone / Testosterone, the athlete can achieve simply stunning results.
Oxydrol is the only oral anabolic-androgenic steroid indicated in the treatment of anemias caused by deficient red cell production. Oxymetholone is contraindicated in: male patients with carcinoma of the prostate or breast; females with hypercalcemia with carcinoma of the breast, women who are or may become pregnant; ipatients with nephrosis or the nephrotic phase of nephritis; patients with hypersensitivity to the drug or with severe hepatic dysfunction.
Anadrol (Oxydrol) is the U.S. brand name for oxymetholone, a very potent oral androgen. This compound was first made available in 1960, by the international drug firm Syntex. Since oxymetholone is quite reliable in its ability to increase red blood cell production (and effect characteristic of most anabolic/androgenic steroids), it showed great promise in treating cases of severe anemia. It turned out to be well suited for this purpose, and was popular for quite some time. But recent years have brought fourth a number of new treatments, most notably the non-steroidal hormone Epogen (erythropoietin). This drug is shown to have a much more direct effect on the red blood cell count, without the side effects of a strong androgen. Syntex stopped in the U.S. in 1993, which was around the same time they decided to drop this item in a number of foreign countries as well. Plenastril from Switzerland and Austria was dropped; following soon was Oxitosona from Spain. Many Athletes feared Anadrol 50 might be on the way out for good. But new HIV/AIDS studies have shown a new light on oxymetholone. These studies are finding (big surprise) exceptional anti-wasting properties to the compound and believe it can be used safely in many such cases. Interest has been peaked, and as of 1998 Anadrol 50 is again being sold in the United States. This time we see the same Anadrol 50 brand name, but the manufacturer is the drug firm Unimed. Syntex continues to market & license this drug in a number of countries however (under a few different brand names).
