A Guide to Steroids…


A
nadrol
is a synthetic anabolic steroid with an active component called
Oxymetholone
which makes it the strongest androgenic steroid
available. It was initially developed for therapeutic purposes due to its
pharmacological properties useful for patients of anemia and osteoporosis.
It is an effective agent for promoting weight gain, increasing appetite,
gaining strength and increasing red blood cell count.
 

Therapeutic
features of Anadrol:

Many people
with chronic illnesses, such as cancer, certain types of infections, or
renal diseases etc. are also anemic. Anadrol is the only oral
anabolic steroid that has been approved by Food and Drug Administration
(FDA) for anemia treatment as it enhances the erythropoietin production
which further increases the production of new red blood cells. Unlike some
other anabolic steroids, which must be injected often, Anadrol is an easy
to use oral tablet. However, in order to make Anadrol more effective it is
often stacked with other drugs like nandrolone, boldenone and/or
testosterone
.

Possible Side
Effects of Anadrol:

  • Hepatic Toxicity:
    Anadrol has been associated with liver toxicity, specifically,
    Peliosis hepatic
    which a condition in which liver and sometimes
    splenic tissue is replaced with blood-filled cysts which are sometimes
    present with minimal hepatic dysfunction, but may also lead to complete
    liver failure in extreme cases. They are often not recognized until
    life-threatening intra-abdominal hemorrhage develops. So, patients with
    nephrosis (edema and large amounts of protein in the urine and usually
    increased blood cholesterol) or the nephrotic phase of nephritis and
    patients with hypersensitivity to the drug or with severe hepatic
    dysfunction should not be administered with Anadrol.
  • Hepatic
    Carcinoma:
    Some cases of benign and androgen-dependent, hepatic
    carcinoma have been reported along with few fatal malignancies in patients
    receiving Anadrol treatment. These tumors are much more vascular than
    other hepatic tumors and may be silent until life-threatening
    intra-abdominal hemorrhage develops.
  • Cardio-vascular
    complications:
    Anadrol may also affect the levels of certain
    lipids that have known association with an increased risk of certain types
    of cardio-vascular diseases. Many patients treated with androgens like
    Anadrol have shown increased susceptibility to atherosclerosis and
    coronary artery disease.
  • Miscellaneous:
    As Anadrol is chemically similar to the predominantly male hormone –
    testosterone, women taking Anadrol are at risk for developing various
    masculine features like facial/body hair &/or a deeper voice.

However, withdrawal of
Anadrol often results in regression or cessation of hepatic toxicity or
progression of liver carcinoma.



Precautions:

Various reports indicate that Anadrol should neither be administered to males with prostate carcinoma nor to females with hypercalcemia (presence of abnormally high levels of calcium in the blood), breast carcinoma or those women who are or may become pregnant in near future.
