Oxandrolone is widely used due to its exceptionally small level of
androgenicity accompanied by moderate anabolic
effect. Although oxandrolone is a 17-alpha alkylated steroid, its
liver toxicity is very small as well
In the past decades, it was used to treat individuals with a
variety of anemias, weight loss in HIV patients and was once tried
out as treatment for osteoporosis. Today, some physicians do
prescribe Oxandrolone to treat moribund patients gain weight after
trauma, burns or serious infections. The drug is also used to
offset protein catabolism due to prolonged usage of corticosteroids
and for the relief of bone pain caused by osteoporosis.
Oxandrolone is both an anabolic steroid and has all the properties
of an androgenic drug. The actions of the Oxandrolone is similar to
testosterone. But Anavar is often called a weak testosterone. It
has two advantages compared to other steroids. Firstly, it does not
converted into estrogen and it does not significantly influence the
hypothalamic pituitary tract at low doses. What this means is that
because it is not broken down to estrogen, males will not develop
breast enlargement Secondly, because it does not affect the
hypothual pituitary axis. It dose not affect the suppression of
testosterone. This means that the individual taking Anavar will not
have such side effects like loss of libido, impotence or testicular
atrophy- features that are commonly seen with other anabolic
Among bodybuilders it is most commonly used during cutting phases
of training when water retention is a concern. The standard dosage
for men is in the range of 20-50mg per day, a level that should
produce noticeable results.
It can be further combined with anabolics like Primobolan and
Winstrol to elicit a harder, more defined look without added water
retention. Such combinations are very popular and can dramatically
enhance the show physique. One can also add strong non-aromatizing
androgens like Halotestin, Proviron or trenbolone.
Clinically, this drug is used to treat body wasting diseases and
bone pains caused by osteoporosis, muscle gains. Anavar is referred
to as a mild anabolic androgenic steroid since it exhibits great
results with slight side effects.
The basic Anavar cycle is one of the most popular among performance
enhancers and anabolic steroid users. Without question, while a
solid cycle can be planned around this hormone by men, the Anavar
cycle is far more beneficial to women. In many circles, the
Oxandrolone hormone that is Anavar has for years been labeled the
official â€œGirl Steroidâ€ by many and for several good reasons.
To begin, this is one of the few anabolic steroids women can use
without severe virilization. Absolutely, virilization can still
occur, but individual response will largely dictate this as well as
total dosing. Regardless, it remains to be one of the few steroids
that rest in a womanâ€™s favor. Another reason so many label it as
â€œThe Girl Steroidâ€ is because women respond to it at a much
higher degree than men. It normally takes a massive amount of
Oxandrolone for a man to see results, but for a woman the smallest
amount can do enormous things.
Anavar(Oxandrolone) really started to catch on big time with
bodybuilders, athletes and recreational steroid users when the
publication “Muscle Media 2000” (the first national magazine to
talk openly about steroids) gave Anavar the highest rating in
regard to benefit to risk ratio. The magazine made the point that
Anavar gave incredible benefits and this “fringe” drug suddenly
became the most coveted of all steroids.
Oxandrin (oxandrolone) is indicated as adjunctive therapy to promote weight gain after weight loss following extensive surgery, chronic infections, or severe trauma, and in some patients who without definite pathophysiologic
reasons fail to gain or to maintain normal weight, to offset the
protein catabolism associated with prolonged administration of
corticosteroids, and for the relief of the bone pain frequently
accompanying osteoporosis (See DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION).
DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION
Therapy with anabolic steroids is adjunctive to and not a
replacement for conventional therapy. The duration of therapy with
Oxandrin (oxandrolone) will depend on the response of the patient
and the possible appearance of adverse reactions. Therapy should be
