Oxymetholone is a synthetically produced anabolic steroid that resembles an endogenous form of the sex hormone testosterone and has a corresponding effect. In addition to injectable steroids, this active ingredient belongs to the oral steroids just like the steroids Methandienone (Dianabol), Methenolone Acetate, Methyltestosterone, Oxandrolone (Anavar), stanozolol tablets or testosterone undecanoate (Andriol) and is accordingly taken in tablet form.
Therefore, in this article we explain:
- What is Oxymetholone?
- What are the effects and possible side effects of the steroid?
- How is Anapolon used?
- What else is there worth knowing, for example the legal situation in Germany, about this anabolic steroid?
Note: This blog post is only intended to inform you about anabolic steroids (anabolic androgenic steroids – ASA) like Oxymetholone. The trade, acquisition and use of these substances are regulated in some countries – including Germany. We would like to inform here, but not to encourage or instruct consumption.
Oxymetholone: What is it?
The oral steroid Oxymetholone is popular in the bodybuilding scene and in weight training, as it has a strong androgenic and anabolic effect and accordingly supports muscle building and strength increase. It is considered here as one of the steroids with the greatest and most efficient effect. Strength, power and energy in training can be maximized by means of Anapolon or Anadrol and a remarkable mass gain can be achieved.
Oxymetholone (Anapolon): What can the steroid do?
Besides the positive effects of the steroid, various side effects can also occur. Like other steroids, Oxymetholone strongly interferes with the athlete’s body and should therefore always be handled professionally and responsibly. The athlete’s health and well-being are always the highest priority here and should be closely monitored.
A cure with the oral steroid Oxymetholone has the advantage that no injections are necessary, but a comfortable intake in tablet form is possible. The active ingredient provides an alert and stimulated, energetic feeling in the consuming athlete and can thus increase training motivation. Strength and performance can also increase significantly, with a large increase in muscle mass possible in a small amount of time. While some of the kilos gained are always due to water retention, a large amount of muscle gain can still be achievable via this steroid. Also, the substance is said to have a joint-sparing effect, which can be very advantageous especially during heavy training. Finally, an appetite-suppressing effect can come from the oral steroid Oxymetholone. Here you can see all the advantages of a cure with Anadrol or Anapolon at a glance:
- No injection, instead easy oral intake
- Awake, energetic feeling
- Rapid increase in strength
- Improved performance
- Significant muscle gain
- Protection of joints
Side effects Oxymetholone
Typical side effects of Anapolon and Anandrol are liver damage, nausea as well as vomiting and stomach pain due to oral intake. It can also cause typical androgenic effects such as acne, loss of scalp hair, growth of body hair, increased sweating, worsened blood lipids and increased blood pressure. Although the substance itself does not convert to estrogen, it also causes estrogen-typical side effects such as fat and water retention in other ways. Psychological effects such as increased aggressiveness and sleep disturbances may also occur.
The amount of Anapolon an athlete needs to consume for a good and safe effect should be determined individually in each case. Here it depends on the weight, the training condition of the athlete and his or her goals. Beginners can adjust to a dose of about ten to 15mg of the oral steroid, more experienced athletes can also take up to 50mg or more a day. A course of Anadrol is usually taken for about four to six weeks and should be stopped after that to protect the body. This use allows for good results and should be supplemented with a good diet to help the body build muscle. After the cure, the active ingredient should be skipped for some time or replaced with other steroids to avoid risking negative effects and to relieve the body. Women and newcomers are advised not to use it.
After a course of treatment with the steroid Anadrol, the body’s own testosterone production should be stimulated again to help the body restore hormone balance. For this you use a Post-Cycle Theraphy. This way you can also keep your gained muscle mass in the long run and boost your testo production again. But also during the steroid cycle you should support your body – especially the liver – effectively with an On-Cycle-Therapy.
Oxymetholone: Legal situation in Germany
Wondering if AAS (anabolic androgenic steroids) and Oxymetholone are legal in Germany?
Note: We cannot and may not make any legally binding statements, but we want to show you the legal situation as known to us (as of November 2021) in the following. Please always inform yourself about the respective legal situation in your country before buying and consuming anabolic steroids and other substances.
Synthetically produced anabolic steroids, which contain the body’s own steroid hormone testosterone, have been banned since 1984 according to ยง2 para. 1 of the Anti Doping Act (AntiDopG). It is therefore not permitted to manufacture, trade in, sell or dispense anabolic steroids. Anabolic steroids also fall under ยง6a of the German Medicines Act (AMG) and are therefore only available on prescription. But here’s the good news: there are exceptions!
In the DmMV (Doping Agent Quantities Ordinance) is regulated what is considered a “not small amount” and is therefore allowed under certain circumstances. According to this website, the limit for Oxymetholone is 100 mg https://www.gesetze-im-internet.de/dmmv_2023/BJNR0430B0023.html.
But beware: The substance may still not be used for the purpose of doping, i.e. to enhance athletic performance. So if you want to compete, stay away from anabolic androgenic steroids and testosterone replacement products.
You want to increase your performance, but don’t want to inject steroids or take them orally? Then you should look into legal anabolic steroids, SARMs (selective androgen receptor modulators), prohormones etc.. Some of these substances have a similar effect as AAS, but have less or no side effects.
