This is the strongest oral for bulking on the market.
First made commercially available in the 1960’s, Anadrol – or oxymetholone as it is referred to generically – was developed as a compound to help treat anemia by promoting a significant increase in the red blood cell count in the body when administered in a regular basis.
It was initially released in the mainstream pharmaceutical market as Androyd (Park Davis & Co.) and Anadrol 50 (Syntex). These companies have already discontinued manufacturing Anadrol, but its rights for production was signed over to Unimed Pharmaceuticals in the late 1990’s and subsequently to Alevan Pharmaceuticals in 2006.
Technically, Anadrol is classified as a C17-alpha alkylated (C17-aa) steroid, which means it can be ingested orally, and belongs to the dihydrotestosterone (DHT) group.
Moreover, Anadrol was also publicized as an anabolic steroid that offered several other therapeutic benefits like staving off osteoporosis, combating gastrointestinal issues as well as helping remedy any muscle wasting conditions that are usually prevalent among individuals suffering from HIV and AIDS.
Interestingly, further clinical studies on Anadrol revealed that it is a very effective agent when it comes to stimulating weight gain, particularly by enhancing lean muscle growth and development.
This easily paved the way for this steroid to become a mainstay in the checklists of bodybuilders looking to pick up the pace on achieving serious lean muscle gains. In fact, Anadrol is one of the most popular – if not the top anabolic steroid – used for bodybuilding purposes until now.

Recommended Anadrol Dosing and Administration
According to experienced Anadrol users, this anabolic steroid should be administered daily mainly because of its active half-life of more or less 16 hours. Recommended dosing is 50mg every day, which should be continued for 4-6 weeks.
Although administering Anadrol at 100mg daily can still trigger the same benefits in terms of lean muscle growth and development, going over this amount can already set off negative side effects. Same goes for running a cycle with Anadrol for more than 6 weeks.
- Significantly promotes mass-building
- Enhances strength and endurance levels
- Increases red blood cell count
- Helps stimulate appetite (but administering too much can already inhibit the same)
Anadrol Side Effects
The following side effects have been observed based on the several medical studies conducted on Anadrol:
- Promotes excessive water retention
- Accelerated male pattern baldness and slower hair growth
- Can significantly suppress healthy HDL cholesterol
- Can trigger cardiovascular issues
- Has a strong level of hepatotoxicity
However, these side effects can be prevented by administering Anadrol in recommended doses and observing protocols that can set off liver problems during the same such as limiting the use of over the counter (OTC) drugs and refraining from the consumption of alcohol.
Additional Notes on Anadrol
Now while Anadrol is no doubt very effective in promoting lean muscle gains, it is not recommended for women who are extremely vulnerable to adverse side effects like enlargement of the clitoris, deepening of the vocal chords and accelerated hair growth. This anabolic steroid is not also highly recommended for people who are predisposed to liver issues.
