Oxymetholone 50 mg was first developed in the 1960s by Syntex Pharmaceuticals as an agent to treat anemia and muscle wasting disorders. As is common with many medications designed for this purpose, Anadrol would soon find a welcome home in the performance-enhancing world. This can be easily seen because this particular anabolic steroid consists of the drug Oxymetholone 50 mg which easily promotes weight gain by increasing appetite and red blood cells, as well as increasing strength. There is one interesting note though, too much Anadrol can seriously reduce your appetite and make weight gain very difficult; after all, if you can’t eat, you can’t grow.
Anadrol Oxymetholone 50 mg, commonly known as Anadrol because of the first manufactured name of the steroid is derived from Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and is a 17-alpha-alkylated steroid (17-aa.) The 17-aa change simply means that the steroid has been chemically altered at the 17th carbon position to allow it to survive ingestion by surviving the first pass through the liver; without the 17-aa change, the steroid would be destroyed before it ever entered the bloodstream. The good news is that through this change we can pick up a useful and powerful anabolic steroid; the bad news is that it is toxic to the liver. Since most oral steroids are 17-aa, the toxic effect can be quite high,
Once Anadrol enters the body, which is allowed by its 17-aa form, it will become active very quickly and the effects will be dramatically fast. When we understand anabolic androgenic steroids, the half-life associated with them largely affects the initial potency; Oxymetholone 50 mg has a very short half-life of about 8.5 hours which makes the steroid’s activity almost immediate but with a very short active duration. For this reason, many athletes will split their Anadrol dosage into two doses per day to keep a maximum amount of the steroid active in their system around the clock during periods of use. However, one dose per day is sufficient to maintain an active amount of steroid function in the body, but not at peak levels.
The benefits of Oxymetholone 50 mg:
As a steroid designed to treat weight loss and muscle wasting disease, this is one of the more prominent bulking steroids we can use for bulking. While many anabolic steroids can serve both bulking and cutting purposes, most have a primary role and Anadrol is no exception. There is a purpose for Anadrol during a cutting cycle and we will touch on that as we go but for most steroid users bulking and only bulking is the only time they use this steroid.
With its immense power, Oxymetholone 50mg is one of the most powerful oral steroids ever made, individuals can see their weight increase by as much as 20-30kg in just a few weeks of use as well as see their strength shoot through the roof. Since this steroid is almost always used as part of a stack and not alone, due to its low androgen binding properties, it will allow other steroids you take to more appropriately fill this role and more or less create a higher level of synergy between the different anabolic androgenic steroids you are taking.
The side effects of Anadrol:
As we have discussed, Anadrol is very taxing on the liver and will raise liver enzymes well beyond optimal levels when consumed. However, with responsible use, serious damage is largely avoided as the liver has amazing healing properties and will normally return to its original state once use is discontinued; provided we use responsibly and assuming our liver is healthy to begin with. Despite this, hepatotoxicity is not the only negative downfall of this steroid; there are estrogen-related side effects. Most steroids that carry these potential side effects do so by converting to estrogen via the aromatase process but Anadrol as a DHT based steroid does not aromatize. Although it will not convert, Anadrol has been shown to affect estrogen release in the body in a way that increases it and for this reason caution is advised. Negative effects such as Gynecomastia and high blood pressure can all occur due to this effect as well as water retention, which is notorious with this steroid. For this reason, most athletes will supplement their use with an Aromatase Inhibitor (AI) such as Arimidex or Letrozole to keep the effects at bay; both of these AIs have been shown to greatly reduce estrogen in the body.

Anadrol & Cutting:
It is easy to see why this steroid is perfect for bulking as its attributes lend themselves to this purpose and because of these very attributes very few individuals will use Anadrol during a cutting cycle. However, there is an exception and quite a big one in competitive bodybuilding. Many competitive bodybuilders will supplement with Anadrol in the last few weeks before a show; by building up a large amount of the steroid in the body over a period of weeks, they can use up their carbohydrates in the end. Through this process, the competitor will have a much fuller look, but again, care must be taken. A person who is very sensitive to waterproofing from this steroid will need to stay away from this process but if such a diet is on point and such sensitivity is not a problem,
Anadrol Cycles & Doses:
Oxymetholone 50 mg is almost always available in 50 mg tablets and the most common dose is simply 50 mg per day. While 50 mg per day will prove to be very effective, 100 mg per day is not uncommon; however, 100 mg per day will prove to be the most anyone would ever want to take if they want to remain in a responsible range. It should be noted that Oxymetholone 50 mg does not have the same risk to reward ratio that most other anabolic steroids do. This risk/reward ratio revolves around the dosage and benefits of a particular steroid; meaning, the more you take the greater the results but the more you take the greater the risk of potential side effects. Oxymetholone 50mg has been shown to really taper off in terms of benefits when doses start to go well past 100mg per day and this adverse reaction can start to occur at doses above just 50mg per day in some individuals. What this means is an extremely high dose of Anadrol does not normally produce better results than a lower, more optimal dose; the only effect will be a higher level of liver damage.
The majority of Oxymetholone 50mg users will find that their use of the steroid is best suited for bulking cycles but only for a portion of the cycle for shorter periods than the full cycle. 4-6 weeks is a good rule of thumb as going past this point not only causes unnecessary stress on the liver but the benefits of the steroid will start to drop as you stretch past the 6 week mark. The most optimal time to use this steroid is the first 4-6 weeks of the given cycle and most people will find Oxymetholone 50mg stacks very well with testosterone of any form with additional Deca-Durabolin for those really looking for a kind.
