A physician’s analysis of Anadrol-50 aka Oxymetholone and its side effects and properties. Anadrol is an oral steroid that is fast-acting, both in its bulking effects and toxicity, leading to serious side effects. Anadrol is interesting: even though it can’t be aromatized, it acts directly on estrogen receptors leading to estrogenic side effects. And while the molecule itself is not very androgenic, it is converted into a potent androgen, Mestanolone, leading to androgenic side effects. Of course it also causes liver and cardiovascular damage, and has unique effects on appetite and the GI tract. If you are considering taking Anadrol or have taken it, please watch this video!

Stay Strong and Healthy,
As the Anabolic Doc, since 2003, I’ve provided men who are using or have used anabolic steroids a confidential, ethical and professional medical venue to discuss their use. I do NOT in any way support the use of any performance enhancing drugs – PEDs, anabolic steroid or other medicine for muscle building or body transformation. The “off-label” use of PEDs, as such agents is considered elicit and may lead to adverse health outcomes. Please consult an expert health professional regarding any medical agent and do NOT use any medicine without the explicit advice and supervision of an appropriate medical expert.
