Which is the most potent anabolic steroid we can use? When it comes to orals, there’s one clear answer: it’s Anadrol (Oxymetholone). You might not hear it talked about as often as Dianabol, but Oxymetholone has a cult following for guys who know their anabolic steroids.

This isn’t always an easy AAS to use. But get your dosage and cycle planned well, and you can get unmatched results from Anadrol. So, are you ready to learn all there is to know about Oxymetholone?

Let’s go!

What is Anadrol?

Anadrol is an oral steroid known alongside Dianabol as one of the two best orals for bulking.

Anadrol AAS
Anadrol AAS

Anadrol can be a challenging steroid to use and comes with its share of risks, and it’s not an AAS that I usually recommend to the beginner. But once you’ve worked out what dose works best for you, your gains on Anadrol are huge in size and strength.

History and Overview

Anadrol is another old anabolic steroid dating back to the late 1950s. Although it’s an incredibly effective steroid for some medical uses, its use declined due to the risks associated with the liver.

Anemia is the primary medical condition that Anadrol has been used to treat. The red blood cells increasing effects of Anadrol made it appealing as an anemia treatment. In fact, it has been found to boost red blood cells up to five times their normal production level[1]. Anadrol has also been used medically for osteoporosis and muscle wasting due to its excellent muscle growth effects, even in those people who don’t participate in regular resistance training.

Anadrol is just one brand name of Oxymetholone, but it’s by far the most well-known one. Anapolon, Oxyanabolic, and Nastenon are just a few of the other brands this steroid has been sold under. It remains a top-rated oral steroid among male and female bodybuilders.

Mechanism of Action

Anadrol is a modified form of the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Most of my favorite “cutting steroids” belong to this DHT-derived category of anabolic steroids (Winstrol, Masteron, and Anavar, to name a few). But Anadrol has very different effects on the body to those AAS. With a minor chemical modification, Anadrol becomes active in muscle tissue, which is where DHT, when unmodified, becomes inactive.

The result?

Anadrol can promote potent activity in muscle tissue, making it such an effective bulking AAS. We can get a good idea of Anadrol’s potency by comparing its anabolic and androgenic rating to the standard 100/100 of testosterone:

  • Anadrol anabolic rating: 320
  • Anadrol androgenic rating: 45

Even though technically, DHT-derived AAS shouldn’t result in estrogenic conversion and side effects, Anadrol is well-known for these adverse effects (water retention and gynecomastia, for example). This makes Anadrol a very different user experience than the other well-known DHT-derived steroids and is a good reason we shouldn’t assume that all DHT steroids are alike.

Effects of Anadrol (Benefits)

Anadrol is a potent steroid, and its use shouldn’t be taken lightly. While its beneficial effects are fantastic, they come with equally potent side effects (see below where I detail these). Here are the benefits you can expect when you use Oxymetholone:

Muscle Gains

Many of us consider Oxymetholone to be the most potent muscle-building AAS. Anadrol’s ability to promote muscle growth is exceptional. Still, just like Dianabol and unlike most other DHT-derived AAS, you need to expect some (or even a lot) of your volume gains to be water retention, so some weight will always be lost post-cycle. Anadrol will pack size on you very quickly if you’re eating the calories required; in fact, within just the first week, noticeable physique changes will kick in.


Significant strength gains are always desirable with a bulking steroid, and Anadrol more than delivers in this area. Your strength will skyrocket on Oxymetholone, and with its quick-acting effects, you’ll often feel it a short time after taking a dose (which is why it’s often taken 1-2 hours before working out).


We don’t often associate bulking steroids with a significant boost to endurance, but Anadrol excels in this area. More endurance means you’ll be able to stave off fatigue for longer while training – resulting in more significant and faster gains. This is thanks to Anadrol’s ability to substantially increase your red blood cell count, which allows increased oxygen and nutrient transport to the muscles.

Joint Support

A risk factor with the sudden increase in strength Anadrol provides is the possibility of injury when you start lifting weights that your joints might not yet be up to handling. Anadrol can likely provide some level of joint strengthening and support, especially with it not being a dry compound; however, you should still take care to avoid injuries to joints and tendons with your newfound strength ability.

While Anadrol provides more benefits, the above are the primary ones of most concern to us. Faster recovery, great pumps, increased aggression, and the speed at which Anadrol takes effect are all additional benefits to look forward to with this AAS.

Anadrol Dosing and Administration

Anadrol is one of few anabolic steroids where many clinical studies exist to guide us in dosage ranges. Regardless, I always recommend starting at a lower dose when using a powerful oral like Anadrol and working your way up if you can handle the side effects.


Clinical use of Anadrol in treating muscle wasting was typically dosed at under 10mg per day, but at one point, some prescriptions were written for up to 30mg daily for medical patients.

When Anadrol’s use for muscle wasting conditions decreased, and the focus became almost exclusively on treating anemia, the recommended dosage was changed to take body weight into account – 1mg to 2mg per day per kilogram of body weight. This results in a surprisingly high dose for clinical use – sometimes over 100mg/day.

Due to Anadrol’s potency, we do not stray far from those medical doses. Liver toxicity, water retention, and cholesterol impacts mean that very high doses of this harsh steroid should be avoided even by experienced users.


Although Anadrol isn’t a beginner’s steroid, your first time using it should be conservatively dosed regardless of your experience with any other AAS. You’ll want to evaluate your response because it can be variable among individuals (and tracking your cardio and liver health is recommended with bloodwork). Beginners can start at 50mg daily, although even 25mg will produce noticeable results, often with minimal side effects.


50mg is a dose many users won’t ever want to exceed, but if you’re tolerating it well, then doubling the dose to 100mg will boost strength and size gains to an incredible level.


With clinical studies sometimes using doses of 150mg per day or even more, we know it’s possible to use Anadrol at these dosage levels. If you’re an individual who responds poorly to Anadrol (whether it’s water retention, cholesterol, or your liver), then 150mg can be challenging to tolerate.


Female doses of Anadrol can be surprisingly well tolerated at higher levels. Past medical studies have found that virilization was minimal in females who received no less than 50mg per day for at least three months[2]. Female bodybuilders typically take between 25mg to 50mg per day. Virilization is always possible at any dose, and females should be looking for voice changes or body hair growth.

Dosing Schedule, Half-life, and Cycle Length

Anadrol’s half-life is not well understood. As an oral steroid, we can expect it to have a very short half-life, at least compared to injectables. Estimates of the half-life of Oxymetholone put it somewhere in the range of 5 to 9 hours.

  • One option is to take Anadrol twice daily by splitting your dose.
  • Some users will split the daily dose into three administrations – this is entirely personal preference but also depends on your dosage.

But a good number of users still swear by taking the entire Anadrol dose all at once each day. Why? It can be quite effective when taken an hour or two before working out. Although we shouldn’t think of it as a pre-workout compound, most guys will find there’s a noticeable boost in strength and pumps when timing it this way.

Anadrol cycle lengths should be kept short mainly due to what Anadrol will be doing to your liver and cardiovascular system. If you can’t keep water retention manageable through your diet, then this is another reason to limit your Anadrol cycle length: Excess water retention leads to increased blood pressure.

Would I use Anadrol and not be getting regular bloodwork? No way. I want to know what’s going on. With that said, if you’ve done a few Anadrol cycles and have a good handle on how you respond at specific doses, then you might choose to be less worried about getting blood done so often.

An 8-week cycle is a comfortable balance between benefits and risks, but there are extensive anecdotes and even studies of people using it well beyond that time limit. But I can’t state enough: the longer you use Anadrol, the closer you’ll need to monitor liver health and make use of a supplement like TUDCA (Tauroursodeoxycholic acid) for liver support.

Likely Results

If you’ve ever used other DHT-derived steroids before, you’ll be used to their dryness and lack of water retention. This is not the case with Oxymetholone, and it can cause a significant amount of fluid retention!

The results from Oxymetholone are exceptional when it comes to size gains, and water weight contributes to this – expect impressive fullness and volume and an overall pumped look and feel.

Anadrol can blow up your muscles big and fast. How fast and how big?

  • 10 lbs in the first week is possible
  • 25-30lbs for a standard cycle is common

Yes, a lot of it will be water and lost soon after. But you’ll look fantastic, and people will be in awe at the rapid change in your physique. You won’t feel pumped and huge only after working out, either. You can expect that fullness to be with you 24 hours a day.

The downside to all this is that you obviously lose muscle definition, and if you suffer terrible water retention, you’ll be walking around with a moon face and an over-bloated look – a sure sign to others that you’re using AAS. But Anadrol was never an under-the-radar steroid; you should know that before entering.

Surprisingly to some, women will also use Anadrol occasionally for its muscle and strength gains and lower risk of virilizing side effects compared to most other AAS.

Anadrol Cycles

Anadrol’s high-level hepatotoxicity, and to a lesser extent, its cholesterol-altering and water retention effects, combine to make this a steroid that isn’t suitable for long cycles.

As always, there will be people using it for ten weeks or more, but in my (and many other people’s) opinion, I will always want to limit Anadrol to a 6-week cycle. Even four weeks is long enough to have you putting on considerable size; remember that this is a very fast-acting steroid that has you gaining within the first week!

Author Note: I’m currently using Anadrole by Crazy Bulk. It’s an ideal swap for your risk-laden Anadrol (Oxymetholone). The stuff truly works!


Most men will be using Anadrol alongside a modest dose of testosterone. Test dosed at 400mg/week with Anadrol at 100mg or less is a surefire path to incredible results for males.

Men can expect significant increases in strength within just the first two to three days, and it only gets bigger and better from there. Noticeable fullness and thickness to the muscles become prominent early on, but with that comes some bloating (which varies among each of us).

Taking more than 50mg will give most of us a noticeable decrease in appetite. This can be the point where you’ll reduce the dose or not want to take it any higher – you want to maintain your target intake of calories each day to make it worth using Anadrol.

One theme that continually pops up is guys find a big difference in their Anadrol experience from one dosage to the next. Some of us don’t do well with 100mg but do amazingly well at 50mg. This comment sums it up nicely: “At 50mg, huge strength gains and fullness. At 100mg, I feel very fatigued, bloated, and tired”. This is why you must evaluate your response and prepare to adjust your dose up or down to get the best results.

All men are going to be happy with the size gains made with Anadrol. Keeping them on after the cycle is where the big challenge is. I see plenty of comments like “gained 15lbs, but it was mostly water!” – resulting in a drastic loss of weight after your cycle. This is normal for Anadrol and should be expected.

Like most men who take AAS, mood changes can be very noticeable, which you’ll hear about often with Anadrol. Guys are saying things like “feel way more aggressive” after taking a first dose of Anadrol because it kicks in quickly. Aggression can be a welcome effect if you know how to use it properly and leave it in the gym.

Lower back pumps become an issue for some guys. This can impact some movements like deadlifts, and it’s worth considering a taurine supplement to try and combat this.


Despite its potency and the fact that most females will look at using Anavar and even testosterone instead, Anadrol is a pretty tolerable steroid for women.

  • When used clinically on female patients, high doses have been prescribed and generally tolerated by women.
  • Virilization becomes a secondary concern with Anadrol. It’s the liver toxicity that’s of greater significance here.

What results can women get with Anadrol?

Women will see gains in strength that are rarely achievable with any other PED. Naturally, this leads to being able to lift heavier weights, but caution should be taken not to overextend and cause injury to the ligaments or joints.

Overall, weight gain is also going to include water, and women will need to work hard after the cycle to maintain any muscle gains. 10lbs of weight gain on a 25mg/day cycle for eight weeks is achievable for females. Acne and some virilization are possible at this dose, but as long as the cycle runs for no longer than eight weeks, these effects should fade away completely.

On the downside, women suffer the same bloating as men do with Anadrol. This can even extend to fingers swelling up, so females should undoubtedly be monitoring blood pressure on the cycle (as well as cholesterol and liver enzymes).

Women note “awesome pumps” on Anadrol and praise this AAS, which females often overlook due to its harsh reputation. In reality, Anadrol’s impacts on the liver are ultimately the most significant risk for women rather than temporary virilization.

Anadrol vs. Other PEDs

The most obvious AAS you will want to compare Anadrol to is Dianabol. These are the two most potent oral bulking steroids available, and you can only use one at a time – which is better for you? Superdrol is another AAS worth lining up alongside Anadrol. And finally, Trenbolone is often called THE most potent and harsh steroid. But how does it compare to Anadrol?

Anadrol vs. Dianabol

Dianabol will almost always come to mind when thinking about oral bulking steroids. After all, Dbol was one of the favorite AAS of the golden era bodybuilders and remains as popular as ever today.

Dianabol AAS
Dianabol AAS

Dbol and Anadrol have a lot in common:

  • Both work fast and give huge gains
  • Both cause water retention
  • Both are liver-toxic

But despite Anadrol often considered the harsher of the two, it’s much more suitable for female use than most other AAS (including Dianabol). I consider Anadrol to be harsher overall. It will stress the liver more and pose an increased risk to the cardiovascular system.

I’d never recommend Anadrol for beginners, but new male users can usually tolerate short cycles of Dianabol very well as long as the dose is kept moderate. Another downside to Anadrol is how it can decrease your appetite, while Dianabol can increase the appetite in some users.

Dianabol is more famous for good reason – it’s a more manageable steroid to use and less taxing on the body overall.

Anadrol vs. Superdrol

Superdrol is also a DHT-derived oral AAS. Superdrol is the oral version of Masteron, but its effects are nothing like Masteron. Masteron is mainly a cutting AAS, while Superdrol is one of the most potent muscle-building steroids.

Superdrol AAS
Superdrol AAS

But Superdrol comes with a benefit over Anadrol: Both are amazing muscle gainers; however, Superdrol gives you those gains without water retention. Superdrol can be harsher on the joints than Anadrol. This is no surprise, considering it’s a dry compound.

Both Anadrol and Superdrol are very liver-toxic, so there’s no difference in the recommended length of time we should be using them. Most people who have used both Superdrol and Anadrol find that the sides of Superdrol are worse to deal with. This includes things like roid rage and severe changes to cholesterol and the liver.

Personal preference and response will be your deciding factors between Anadrol and Superdrol. Guys typically find that one is more tolerable to use than the other, but make no mistake: both can deliver incredible size and strength gains within a short time.

Anadrol vs. Trenbolone

Trenbolone is notorious for its harsh side effects. Although an injectable steroid, Tren is very liver toxic, although Anadrol is still considered riskier to the liver.

Trenbolone AAS
Trenbolone AAS

I will use Tren for longer than Anadrol – 8 weeks on Trenbolone is usually my minimum (many will use it for 16 weeks or longer). Trenbolone will give you relatively fast results, but not as fast as Anadrol. But here’s the thing… Trenbolone’s gains are going to be dry and maintainable, whereas much of the weight gained with Anadrol is lost.

Trenbolone’s additional side effects (and it’s a very long list) are worse than anything that Anadrol can throw at you. Your testosterone will bounce back fairly quickly with PCT following Anadrol use, whereas with Tren being a Nandrolone AAS, you can stay suppressed for months afterward. I find Anadrol to be the more tolerable AAS to use between these two.

Stacking Anadrol

At the very least, Anadrol will always be run with a testosterone base in a stack (for men only). This can be a TRT dose of testosterone to maintain estrogen levels and normal function. Or you can increase the test dose to contribute more anabolic effects.

As for stacking Anadrol with any other AAS? We shouldn’t stack Anadrol with any oral AAS unless you want to kill your liver (not recommended). Anadrol can be used as a kick-start compound in cycles with injectables like Deca-Durabolin. In any case, Anadrol will only be used for bulking cycles because its water retention makes it unsuitable for cutting.

Anadrol + Testosterone (Bulking Stack)

This stack uses a higher dose of testosterone than just a base, and it’s the most common way that Anadrol is stacked because you can never go wrong with adding testosterone to a cycle where muscle gains are your primary goal.

There are several ways to combine these two, but I like Anadrol as a kickstart when using a medium to slower-acting testosterone. You can then choose to extend your testosterone use for as long as desired, but I limit mine to 12 weeks here.


  • Big muscle and strength gains
  • Fast gains early on
  • Quick recovery
  • Full and pumped look
  • Enhanced mood and energy
  • Possible fat loss
  • Bone and joint support


  • Week 1-4: Anadrol: 50mg/day
  • Week 1-12: Testosterone enanthate 600mg/week

Possible side effects

  • Water retention
  • Testosterone suppression
  • Gyno
  • Acne and hair loss
  • High blood pressure
  • Increased cholesterol
  • Liver toxicity


Strength and muscle gains will come on very early, with Anadrol kicking off this cycle while you wait for Testosterone to take effect. While water retention can be high in those first few weeks, it should moderate after you come off Anadrol, and lean muscle will become your prominent weight increase.

Testosterone can improve vascularity, and if you want to harden and dry up toward the end of the cycle, we can optionally run Anavar for two to three weeks to finish off.


If using Testosterone Enanthate, wait two weeks before starting PCT. For PCT, use Enclomiphene: 25mg for the first three weeks and 12.5mg at week 4.

Anadrol + Deca-Durabolin (Bulking Stack)

Here, Anadrol is used as a kickstart compound, with the slower-acting Deca kicking in later and testosterone being used mainly for support purposes only. Both Anadrol and Deca are going to give you water retention challenges, but by moderating your dose and eating well, this doesn’t have to become a big problem.


  • Big strength gains
  • Significant size gains
  • Joint support
  • Nice pumps
  • Fast recovery


To give Deca time to kick in, we start it two weeks before Anadrol:

  • Deca: 300mg/week (Weeks 1-10)
  • Anadrol: 50mg/week (Weeks 3-10)

Possible side effects

  • Testosterone suppression
  • Liver toxicity
  • Cholesterol and blood pressure increase
  • Water retention
  • Gyno
  • Deca dick
  • Decreased appetite
  • Mood changes


Strength gains will come on slow and steady early on, but kick up several gears once you start Anadrol. How much weight you can gain is entirely up to your effort, but once water weight is lost post-cycle, lean gains of up to 15 lbs are achievable. Deca will introduce additional joint support to this cycle, which is welcomed and will support your ability to lift heavier with Anadrol’s massive strength increase.


Deca will leave long-lasting metabolites in your system and potentially shut you down for many months. Regular PCT may not work effectively after this cycle, and ongoing testosterone cruising is often needed.

Anadrol + Trenbolone + Testosterone (Bulking/Recomp Stack)

You could use Sustanon if you prefer on this cycle or your own choice of testosterone, but I recommend a fast ester if using injectables. This is a very advanced stack (both Tren and Anadrol can be considered two of the most potent AAS, including their sides). But serious mass can be gained and gained very quickly. Anadrol is only used for the first three weeks, and then Trenbolone will help dry out some of that water weight.


  • Huge gains
  • Fast results
  • Massive strength
  • Hardness and vascularity (after stopping Anadrol)
  • Pumped and full look
  • Fast recovery
  • Big pumps
  • Enhanced energy, mood, and confidence


  • Testosterone: 600-700mg/week
  • Trenbolone: 300mg/week
  • Anadrol: 50-100mg/day (first three weeks only)
  • 0.5mg Arimidex daily
  • Cycle length: 8 to 10 weeks

Possible side effects

  • Testosterone shutdown
  • Water retention
  • Gyno
  • Liver toxicity
  • Cholesterol and blood pressure increase
  • Acne
  • Hair loss
  • All known Trenbolone sides: night sweats, insomnia, jealousy, anxiety, Tren cough
  • Appetite suppression


This cycle is all about making fast, huge gains. Prepare to work hard and eat a lot to get the most out of it. Anadrol will blow you up early on, but once Tren takes over, that water weight will start receding, and you’ll notice increasing muscle hardness and vascularity. Gains of 20lbs are possible if your diet supports it.


Trenbolone will leave long-lasting metabolites in your system and potentially shut you down for many months. Regular PCT may not work effectively after this cycle, and ongoing testosterone cruising is often needed.

Anadrol PCT

Anadrol will suppress your natural testosterone function and will require PCT only for MEN. Women require no PCT after using Anadrol or any other steroids.

But there’s this to consider: Anadrol is almost always used for only the first few weeks of a cycle, whereas other AAS are continued on for potentially another month, two months, or much longer.

What does this mean for you? PCT only starts once all exogenous hormones clear your system. In most cases, this won’t be Anadrol, but instead, the other steroids you’re using and your PCT cycle will need to be planned based on what’s required for those other AAS.

When it comes to Anadrol being the primary compound where you need to run PCT, it should be started the day after your last dose. HCG is optional but provides a more aggressive PCT, which can be needed if you’re heavily suppressed.

An example PCT cycle is:

  • hCG at 2000IU every other day (20 days)
  • Nolvadex – 40mg for three weeks, 20mg for one week.

For more detailed information about post-cycle therapy, make sure you check out my PCT guide here.

Anadrol Side Effects

Anadrol is a serious AAS that can give you more trouble with side effects than most other steroids. There’s a good reason (actually several) that we only use Anadrol for short cycles of just a few weeks (yes, some guys will run it for longer than eight weeks at their own risk).

But despite all its potency and genuine side effect risks, Anadrol CAN be tolerated well by many people, and sides can be minimized with sensible use. In fact, one study showed that while patients frequently experienced side effects, they were primarily mild and always reversible[3].

Here are the main side effects Anadrol can cause:

Testosterone Suppression

Anadrol will suppress or shut down your natural production of testosterone. Without any aromatizing activity, estradiol levels can drop enough to cause debilitating symptoms without the use of a testosterone base in any Anadrol cycle (generally 150-250mg/week of Testosterone). PCT is required to speed up the restoration of testosterone function after using Anadrol.

Water Retention

Anadrol is notorious for its water retention and associated bloat appearance, but in some ways, this contributes to the desired full and blown-up look that Anadrol users are chasing. It’s simply a matter of preventing fluid retention from becoming extreme, and you’ll want to do that anyway to prevent high BP.


Despite having no aromatizing ability, Anadrol can bring on gyno symptoms by potentially having direct activity on estrogen receptors. Low-dose Nolvadex taken on cycle can stop the development of gynecomastia in male users if early signs start showing.


Anadrol can have a severe impact on cholesterol levels. Both HDL decreasing and LDL increasing are virtually guaranteed; it’s simply a matter of how bad it will get. Consuming plenty of omega-3 and including some cardiovascular activity is recommended.

Blood Pressure

Anadrol’s ability to cause fluid retention is one contributor to increased blood pressure. High blood pressure can also lead to negative impacts on your kidneys.

Liver Toxicity

Anadrol is one of the most liver-toxic AAS we can use, and this is the main reason for limiting its length of use. Although changes in your liver enzymes should be temporary, with continual use of Anadrol, you risk developing more severe and potentially deadly liver conditions.

Appetite Suppression

Not every user will feel a decreased appetite, but when it happens, it’s obviously a problem when you’re trying to bulk. From my experience and based on research from a lot of Anadrol users, suppressed appetite is more likely at higher doses (100mg and above). Still, it isn’t always dose-dependent and can come down to individual response.

If you’ve experienced loss of appetite on other orals, then there’s a good chance the same will occur with Anadrol. Want to know more? Make sure you check out my in-depth guide to all things AAS side effects.

Where to Buy Anadrol?

Anadrol is still one of the most popular oral steroids, so its availability is relatively widespread, and you shouldn’t have a problem locating it for purchase from the usual suppliers. The main question will be whether you can source the best pharmaceutical grade Anadrol or if underground lab Anadrol is more accessible for you.

So, where to buy it? You can buy safe and legal Anadrol from Crazy Bulk (the best AAS supplier). Give it a try – the stuff truly works!!

Availability of Anadrol

In the US and some other countries, Oxymetholone is no longer used medically or was never approved. In the US, it’s now listed by the FDA as discontinued. With the variation in the quality of the underground lab (UGL) Anadrol, you will want to make an effort to find a good supplier and stick with them.

Underdosing of Anadrol is a common issue. While it’s difficult to pinpoint if you’ve bought a slightly under-dosed product without testing, you’ll often hear about people who have bought 50mg tablets only to have their actual dose be 45mg or less. It’s not just underdosing that you can run into either; some UGL buyers of Anadrol find their tablets are overdosed by up to 12mg per tablet.

Besides inaccurate dosing, poor-quality Anadrol products might contain other anabolic steroids or other substances (unknown to you).

Anadrol is a Schedule III controlled substance in the US, and it is illegal to sell, manufacture, buy, or possess. Similar strict laws about anabolic steroid use exist in Australia and some European countries.

On the flip side, there are many countries where possessing and using Anadrol for personal use is legal. The UK and Canada are two prime examples.

If you’re a competitor in any sports or contests, Anadrol falls under the same rules as all other AAS in that it’s completely prohibited to use.

Typical Pricing

Oxymetholone is one of the more affordable steroids and certainly cheaper to use than a cycle of Anavar. The fact that we mainly use Anadrol for only a few weeks also keeps overall cycle costs down:

  • Standard 50mg pharmaceutical-grade Anadrol tablets can cost as much as $2.50 or as little as half that amount.
  • UGL Anadrol is often priced similarly to pharma grade, so cost is unlikely to be your deciding factor between the two.

Where you live and your access to suppliers will make a big difference to what you pay. If you purchase from a local gym contact, you should expect some markup as they aim to make a profit.

Final Thoughts

Anadrol has a reputation as a harsh steroid, and I’d certainly agree with that. It comes with real risks to liver and cardiovascular health when you’re not careful with how you use it. But it’s also not as bad as it’s made out to be. We only have to look at some of the doses given in medical trials to see that men and female users tolerate Anadrol well.

I’m not one of those guys who feel comfortable using Anadrol for long periods, but I do feel confident using it at moderate doses (say 100mg at most) for a few weeks to get those incredible and FAST results.

Anadrol isn’t for everyone, but it’s one AAS that gives impressive results in our two most critical areas: muscle and strength. And you really can’t go wrong with that.
