Oxymetholone (also known as anapolon or anadrol) is a very drastic synthetic steroid, 17-alpha-alkylated modification of dihydrotestosterone. It was developed for the treatment of osteoporosis and anaemia, as well as to stimulate muscle gain in malnourished and debilitated patients. Oxymetholone has been approved by the American Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in humans. Later there where created non-steroidal drugs that effectively could treat anaemia and osteoporosis; because of this anapolon lost his popularity and by 1993 Syntex decided to cease the production of the drug, as well as other manufacturers did.
To the dieting competitive bodybuilder bulking steroid, Anadrol cycles are useful. The period of use should be at the end of the cycle, shortly before the competition take place. The reason why it should be taken before tournament start is, the steroid works by allowing the individual to fill out to a greater degree. It gives the muscles a fuller and round look when on stage. Before trying an individual must have some experience on Anadrol cycles to know exactly how they respond to the steroid. It causes retention of water, but with a good understanding of how to control the steroid, you can enjoy the benefits.
