Anavar is an anabolic steroid is available in 2.5-or 10-mg oral tablets. The drug has an active life of 8-12 hours, the average daily dose for a man is between 20-50 mg per day and for a female the media does not range is between 5-15 mg per day.
Anavar therapy is denoted as adjunctive therapy and is used to promote weight gain after weight loss following surgery, chronic infections, trauma, and for patients that have certain health conditions that prohibit the increase of weight. The medicine is also used to offset protein catabolism due to prolonged use of corticosteroids, and for the relief of bone pain caused by osteoporosis.
Anavar has often been called a weak steroid. Part of the reason for this is that use of a Class I steroid alone never is maximally effective. The other cause is that bodybuilders and authors in the field sometimes make unfortunate and unreasonable comparisons when judging anabolic steroids. If say 8 tablets per day does little, then a drug is pronounced useless or weak. And traditionally, oxandrolone was available in 2.5 mg Anavar tablets, proving only 20 mg daily with such usage, which totals to only 140 mg/week. For comparison, testosterone at that dose also gives little results. Indeed, few anabolic steroids give dramatic results at that dose, but they are not called weak on that account. The proper conclusion is that such Anavar tablets were individually weak, but not that the drug lacks potency.
More information about Anavar (Oxandrolone):
Oxandrolone is one of the few steroids, which does not cause an early stunting of growth in children since it does not prematurely close the epiphysial growth plates. For this reason oxandrolone is mostly used in children to stimulate growth and in women to prevent osteoporosis. In obese individuals, oral oxandrolone has been shown to decrease subcutaneous abdominal fat more than testosterone enanthate or weight loss alone, and it also tended to produce favorable changes in visceral fat.
Athletes like oxandrolone for three reasons. First, oxandrolone causes a strong strength gain by stimulating the phosphocreatine synthesis in the muscle cell without depositing water in the joints and the muscles.
Secondly, oxandrolone is one of the very few steroids that does not aromatize into estrogen, at any dosage, which has various advantages for the athlete.
The third reason for the popularity of Anavar is that oxandrolone does not influence the body’s own testosterone production. This special feature of Anavar can be explained by the fact that the oxandrolone is not converted into estrogen.
Oxandrolone causes very light virilization symptoms, if at all. This characteristic makes Anavar a favored remedy for female athletes since, at a daily dose of 10-15 mg., masculinizing symptoms are observed only rarely.
