Before using oral Anavar, a person should know its mechanism of action, dosage recommendations, results and potential side ffects.
Anavar is one of the brand names given to this anabolic androgenic steroid. Brand names can differ depending on pharmaceutical company that produces it. The same applies to nicknames it’s given by underground lab manufacturers.
Known generically as oxandrolone, Anavar tablets are one of the more commonly used forms of anabolic androgenic steroids that offer anabolic effects. Click here to visit our recommended supplier.

Benefits and results of oral Anavar tablets depend on how it’s used.
While oral forms of any drug are not typically as potent nor effective and injections, at least in regard to efficacy, Anavar in tablet form is are potent enough to provide a number of benefits for bodybuilders – when taken in appropriate doses.
Anavar is a prescription-only drug that has been discontinued in the United States because of its potential for more side effects than the benefits it provides in medical usage.
Available in different milligram strength tablets that may take on a number of difference shapes depending on manufacturer, oxandrolone is defined as an endocrine-metabolic agent.
Originally, Anavar was used to enhance weight gain in individuals dealing with:
Today the steroids is not generally recommended for such purposes due to the aforementioned side effects.
As a synthetic anabolic steroid designed to mimic the effects of testosterone, Anavar is also known to increase some organ tissue-building capabilities. It can also:
Anavar tablets, depending on dosage and frequency of dosage, is known by bodybuilders to be relatively effective in aiding gains of lean muscle mass in between cycles or during off-season.
Anavar/oxandrolone is derived from dihydrotestosterone, a metabolite of testosterone. The metabolite is quite potent but lacks the estrogenic properties of other anabolic androgenic steroids.
This lack of estrogenic properties is desired by bodybuilders who don’t want to deal with potential gynecomastia or other estrogen-like side effects such as fluid retention and bloating (mainly noticed in the abdominal region).
Despite the decreased influence of estrogenic-like effects, Anavar tablets are often combined with drugs that inhibit potential estrogenic or progestational side effects. Progestins are similar to estrogens.
Just because a steroid is not known for its estrogenic properties doesn’t mean that it doesn’t contain progestational properties.
A number of bodybuilders using Anavar tablets combine them with anti-estrogen and aromatase inhibitors such as:
Before combining Anavar tablets with other substances to reduce potential side effects, be aware of what each of those additional drugs does in the body, dosage recommendations for use, and potential side effects.
The more drugs you combine in an Anavar cycle, or to reduce potential side effects, the increased risk of other side effects that you might not have been expecting. Such side effects are not always dosage dependent.
A bodybuilder looking at the milligram strength of Anavar tablets may think they’re relatively useless, but such is not the case. Because of its low milligram strength, athletes and bodybuilders often take higher than recommended doses – often combined with other drugs – to boost benefits.
Anavar tablet dosage recommended for medical condoned treatments averaged 5 mg to 10 mg daily.
Bodybuilders often take anywhere from 15 mg to 25 mg of Anavar a day. That may not seem like much, but when combined with other forms of testosterone and the anti-estrogen/aromatase inhibitors, can contribute to a snowball of potential problems.
Before using Anavar tablets, take more than recommended, or combine/stack with other synthetic forms of testosterone, be aware of the increased potential for side effects and adverse reactions.
Some of the side effects linked to Anavar/oxandrolone usage are very serious and can include:
When looking at Anavar tablets, a bodybuilder or athlete may not consider that that tiny pill can influence hormonal and metabolic functions. However, it can.
Introducing exogenous (outside of the body) forms of testosterone into the body – and especially at higher than recommended levels – can disrupt and interfere with hormonal production, secretion, and activities in the body. Hormones have an influence over nearly every system in the body.
While Anavar tablets do produce benefits for bodybuilders and athletes, not all results are the same. Watch for side effects because they do happen.
