Max-Drol (Anadrol) (Oxymetholone)
Oxymetholone is a potent oral anabolic steroid that first appeared in the 1960’s under the trade names Max-Drol (Anadrol) (Syntex) and Androyd (Park Davis & co.) To this day the Oxymetholone hormone is normally referred to as Anadrol in most circles. When the steroid was first released it was touted as holding numerous therapeutic benefits. The range of benefits included the treatment gastrointestinal disease, osteoporosis and anemia, as well as treating chronic underweight issues and combating any catabolic disease or condition.
Over the years Anadrol has fallen under heavy scrutiny from the U.S. FDA as have most anabolic steroids. Currently, the Oxymetholone hormone is only approved in the U.S. for the treatment of anemia, as well as muscle wasting diseases like HIV and AIDS. The compound is also no longer manufactured by Park Davis & co. and Syntex would sell its right to Unimed Pharmaceuticals in the late 1990’s eventually finding its way to Alevan Pharmaceuticals in 2006.
Max-Drol (Anadrol) Functions & Traits
D-Anabol 25 The Oxymetholone hormone known, as Anadrol, is a dihydrotestosterone (DHT) derived anabolic steroid that is closely related to methyldihydrotestosterone. Specifically, Oxymetholone is DHT with an added 2-hydroxymethylene group, which greatly enhances its anabolic activity. It is also a C17-alpha alkylated (C17-aa) anabolic steroid. This refers to a structural change of the hormone at the 17th carbon position that allows it to be orally ingested. Without the change the majority of the hormone would be destroyed before any benefit could be obtained. Unfortunately, this also makes Anadrol toxic to the liver (see side effects section).
Anadrol carries an extremely high anabolic rating that is three times greater than testosterone. However, its androgenic rating is rather low, but also a bit misleading. Anadrol has a tendency to be more androgenic than its rating would imply. The metabolism of this steroid easily removes the 2-hydroxymethylene group, at least in part, thereby reducing the hormone to methyldihdrotestosterone.
Effects of Max-Drol (Anadrol)
The effects of Max-Drol (Anadrol) are without question some of the strongest among anabolic steroids. This is largely considered one of the most powerful steroids in existence, especially on the prescription market, and the results will be rapid. Anadrol is one of the premier mass building steroids, and it will significantly boost the individual’s strength. This steroid is so rapidly powerful it is not uncommon for the individual to gain as much as 20-30lbs in as little as 4-6 weeks of total use. Some of this will undoubtedly be water weight. Anadrol is a non-aromatizing steroid, but it is one of the few non-aromatizing steroids and one of the only DHT compounds that is highly estrogenic. Water retention can be controlled, but this will take some effort in the form of anti-estrogen medications as well as diet.
Due to its fast acting nature, the most common time a performance enhancing athlete will supplement with Anadrol is at the frontend of a new mass gaining or off-season phase. Often referred to as kick-starting, this will produce rapid gains while the slower injectable steroids are building in your system. This brings us to an important point; Anadrol is not a base steroid but rather a secondary steroid that can be added to a total stack. Those who use Anadrol alone will find rapid gains occur, but they will find they disappear just as fast when the cycle does not continue with base steroids like Testosterone, Nandrolone or Trenbolone.
Another excellent time to use Anadrol is mid-cycle. During any cycle, at some point and time the individual will hit a wall. The gains and progress will slow or even come to a screeching halt. When this occurs something must change. It may be a call for a change in training or diet, or it could be a call to introduce a new yet powerful anabolic agent. Mid-cycle use, often referred to as plateau busting will see the gains continue again. You very well may not gain as much weight as you would with a kick-start, but progress will be made nonetheless. It should be noted; if Anadrol is used as a kick-start it should not be used as a mid-cycle plateau buster. This steroid carries a strong hepatic nature and such double use will provide an enormous amount of stress to the liver.
The final time for a performance enhancing athlete to use Anadrol is during a cutting cycle; however, this will only apply to a select group. Anadrol can be a great steroid for a competitive bodybuilder at the tail end of his contest prep. This will aid him in providing a fuller look on stage as he will be able to fully maximize his carb load. This is without question a more advanced technique and one many people will need to avoid. If you have never used Anadrol before the last thing you want is to use it for contest prep purposes. You need to understand how your body reacts to the hormone, you need to understand how to control water during such a phase of use, and most importantly, you need to be in excellent shape. By excellent shape we’re referring to body fat levels of below 6%. These are levels that most steroid using gym rats will never see. Failure to abide by these rules could easily ruin your contest prep and months of hard work. For those who qualify for this period of supplementation, if conditioned, which is the most important factor, the result will be a physique that appears larger and fuller.
Side Effects of Max-Drol (Anadrol)
Max-Drol (Anadrol) is not what we’d call an extremely side effect friendly anabolic steroid. This is largely why its use has become limited in a therapeutic sense. However, the effects can be controlled in most cases. In order to understand the side effects of Anadrol, we have broken them down into their separate categories with all the related information you’ll need.
The Oxymetholone hormone does not aromatize. The aromatase enzyme does not affect it, which is responsible for the conversion of testosterone to estrogen. Further, it is not a progestin and carries no progesterone nature, however, it remains highly estrogenic. How or why it is so estrogenic is a bit of a mystery. There are some theories and the most solid is that Oxymetholone can activate the estrogen receptors to a stronger degree than many other steroids.
Due to the estrogenic nature of Anadrol, gynecomastia can be a real concern, as can excess water retention. In order to protect from gynecomastia you will need an anti-estrogen medication. Anti-estrogens will also have a positive effect on water retention, but when it comes to their use with Anadrol there is an interesting note. The common anti-estrogens used by performance athletes include Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulators (SERM’s) like Tamoxifen Citrate (Nolvadex) and Aromatase Inhibitors (AI’s) like Anastrozole (Arimidex). AI’s are by far the most effective at controlling estrogen as they inhibit aromatization and lower the body’s estrogen levels. SERM’s do not inhibit or lower estrogen but attach to the receptors in the place of estrogen. However, in this case it’s important to remember there is no aromatization going on, there is nothing for an AI to inhibit. They will still be the most effective means of protection due to their reducing properties, but some will find SERM’s to be enough. As an added bonus, SERM’s will not negatively affect cholesterol, while AI’s most certainly will.
A final note, controlling excess water retention is very important. If excess water retention gets out of hand it can have a negative impact on blood pressure.
