Anadrol is known generically as oxymetholone.
When looking for information about “super” Anadrol (Anadrol 50) don’t forget to reference medical journal articles, side effects, and potential adverse reactions and damage to organs by using the term oxymetholone.
The number of terms and names given to anabolic androgenic steroids can be confusing. When in doubt, refer to its molecular/chemical formula: C21H32O3.
Following are just a handful of the names commonly given to Super Anadrol/Anadrol 50:
Actually, super Anadrol/oxymetholone has over two dozen sometimes near un-pronounceable names, and another hundred or so chemical names and synonyms.
At its most basic description, super Anadrol/oxymetholone is defined as a laboratory created (synthetic) hormone that has anabolic and androgenic properties similar to that of testosterone.
In most medical environments, oxymetholone was used in the treatment of several different types of anemia. One of the main uses has been in the treatment of anemia caused by inefficient production of red blood cells due to chemotherapy.
In such cases, the drug worked effectively, but not without side effects.
Taking it when your body is producing adequate ratios of red and white blood cells can cause problems and using oxymetholone to increase erythropoiesis (synthesis of red blood cells) to enhance physical athletic performance is neither beneficial nor recommended.
Oxymetholone is used cautiously in the United States for such treatments because of its potential as a carcinogen.
As with other anabolic androgenic steroids, increased dosage and length of use can increase the potential for side effects or adverse reactions.
Super Anadrol (Anadrol 50) comes in oral tablet form. Dosage recommendations in medical environments depend on why it’s being used.
For example, as a treatment for anemia (caused by lack of red blood cell production) dosage recommendations are/were as follows:
Compare that to the dosage often taken by athletes and bodybuilders:
Super Anadrol has been linked to a number of side effects. The higher the dose, the higher the risk for side effects.
Even though the super Anadrol comes in a 50 mg tablet, it can be cut in half and taken in doses of 25 mg a day, which is recommended for beginners. Even so, the potential for side effects is quite high due to its potent anabolic properties.
Some beginning users claim up to 20 pounds or more in increased bulk within eight weeks.
However, because if it’s properties, oxymetholone also produces water retention, which accounts for much of that gain in bulk and weight.
A few of the typical side effects caused by most anabolic androgenic steroids:
Anabolic androgenic steroids including oxymetholone also have a negative influence on cholesterol levels.
High levels of low-density lipoprotein/LDL cholesterol increases the risk of atherosclerosis, which can contribute to heart attack or stroke.
High doses of oxymetholone/super Anadrol/Anadrol 50 can also contribute to other unexpected and often alarming adverse reactions including:
It should be noted that while oxymetholone may be beneficial in treating a number of conditions when supervised and in recommended dosage therapies, the dangers associated with nonprescription use by bodybuilders can create both short-term and long-term issues in regard to health and wellness.
Use of super Anadrol is no different. Benefits are temporary and will gradually decline over time after the drug is discontinued.
Some of the side effects and damage to organs caused by use of super Anadrol/oxymetholone/Anadrol 50 are chronic.
