Oxymetholone (anadrol) is a synthetic anabolic steroid available in both tablets and capsules. Originally developed in 1960s by Syntex Pharmaceuticals, Anadrol was used to treat medical conditions such as anemia and myelofibrosis. Today Anadrol is mainly used by bodybuilders who are looking to put on serious amounts muscle mass and strength. Anadrol is arguably the strongest steroid available today and nothing puts on mass faster than Anadrol does.

Anadrol Dosage

Anadrol is a 17aa (C-17 alpha alkylated)  Anabolic Steroid, this means it has been chemically altered to allow it to enter the bloodstream without being completely destroyed by the liver. 17aa Steroids are extremely harsh on the liver and for this reason, high dosages should never be taken and cycles should never last longer than 4 weeks. A dosage of 50mg is more than enough for most bodybuilders to see great results.

Anadrol Cycles

Anadrol is used in bulking cycles, where users are looking to get as big and as strong as possible in a short period of time. Due to is short half life, this steroid is usually run in the beginning of a cycle to ‘kick start’ gains, together with 1 or 2 injectable steroids, usually with Testosterone Enanthate and Deca Durabolin. You should never run Anadrol with another oral steroid, as to much strain will be put on the liver and this can lead to serious health problems.

Anadrol usually coming in 50mg tablets and due to its short half life, if you opt for a dosage of 50mg a day, you would need to buy a pill cutter to split the tablets in half, so that you can spread the dosages out.
