Oxandrolone is a tablet anabolic steroid, a 17-alkylated steroid, which makes it highly toxic to the liver, but this drug is less toxic than all other oral steroids when the same dose is compared. The drug is a derivative of DHT, for this reason it has extremely low androgenic effects and high anabolic effects, and it is not aromatised.
The drug was developed in the 60s of the 20th century, in 1964 and released under the brand name Anavar. It was used for recovery from burns, strengthening bone tissue. It was used as an adjunctive drug for HIV-infected patients to increase protein synthesis and maintain muscle mass.
Often used by women due to its low androgenic activity, causing fewer side effects associated with androgenic activity.

Oxandrolone side effects:
- Increase in blood pressure.
- Toxic, negatively affects the liver.

Recommended working dosages of oxandrolone:
For amateurs – 20-30 mg per day. More preferable drug for amateurs, because of its less toxicity to the liver.
For professionals – 50 to 80 mg per day. A dosage of more than 80 mg per week negatively affects the liver, thereby levelling out the effectiveness of increasing the dosage, so it is necessary to limit the dosage to 50 mg per day.
