Oxandroxyl (also known as oxymetholone or anadrol) is a very pungent synthetic steroid, a 17-alpha-alkylated modification of dihydrotestosterone. Oxymetholone is most similar to methandienone in its performance parameters. Like methandienone, it provokes not only an active growth of muscle mass, but also a significant increase in strength performance. However, much of the weight gain is due to water retention in the body, which can lead to increased blood pressure on the cycle. Due to its ability to affect hemoglobin levels and increase blood volume in the body, oxymetholone can cause an extremely strong pamping effect in athletes, which consequently complicates the training process, as muscles ache almost immediately after the first heavy set. Oxandroxyl is a dihydrotestosterone derivative, which gives it an unscented chemical structure. Although oxymetholone does not convert directly to estradiol, it itself has pronounced estrogenic properties. Keep in mind that because of this property, only anti-estrogens, but not aromatase inhibitors, can combat the side effects of estrogen, since aromatase is not involved in this process. Some have suggested that the estrogenic activity of oxymetholone is related to the progestagenic activity, as is the case with the nandrolones. Side effects may be similar. However, medical studies have shown that oxymetholone has no progestagenic activity.
DOSAGE AND USE
The recommended daily dose for children and adults is 1-5 mg/kg body weight per day. The usual effective dose is 1-2 mg/kg per day, but higher doses may be required and the dose should be adjusted individually. The response is often not immediate, and the minimum course of treatment should be three to six months. After remission is achieved, some patients may go without the drug; others may remain on the lower daily dose prescribed. A maintenance dose is usually necessary in patients with congenital aplastic anemia.
Side effects of Oxandroxyl
Nausea, upper abdominal pain, rapid weight gain (face or mid-body), loss of appetite, dark urine, clay-colored stools, yellowing of skin or eyes (jaundice), painful or difficult urination, increased interest in sex, painful or prolonged penile erection loss of interest in sex Impotence, problems with orgasm, decreased sperm count during ejaculation, mild bruising or bleeding (nosebleeds, bleeding gums), bleeding that won't stop, painful swelling of breasts, changes in skin color, shortness of breath, swelling of hands or feet.
Specific to women:
