Anavar is a relatively weak and expensive steroid, however it is much safer than most. For these reasons, it is popular in the medical community over the more harsh alternatives. It is used medically for HIV, cancer, and hepatitis related wasting. It is also used in the treatment of osteoporosis in both men and women.
Anavar (Oxandrolone) was introduced in 1964, and became popular among athletes who preferred using it over the more harsh alternative, dianabol. Anavar production was halted in 1989, but with more interest in the medical community, has restarted in 1995.
Anavar causes little or no virilization properties, which makes it attractive to female athletes. It also does not aromatize. So aside from being safe, it doesn't produce estrogen which prevents it from causing water retention and the more serious estrogen related side effect of gynecomastia.
Anavar has little effect on the body's natural production of hormones. The suppression of Gonadotropin releasing hormone is not noted with its use. That said, gains made on anavar can easily be maintained post cycle. Therefore, the use of ancillary drugs post cycle such as clomid or nolvadex were not required. There is a low, but strong binding to the androgen receptor caused by anavar, resulting in small, but retainable gains. Rarely are doses of anavar higher than 20 mg used on a daily basis. As a result of these low doses, gains and side effects are minor, albeit easy to maintain post cycle. For better results, another steroid may be more suitable, leaving anavar to the medical community. That said, anavar may still be used for those looking to make increases in speed and strength without making increases in muscle size.

Since anavar is a 17-alpha-alkylated steroid, it has hepa-toxicity properties, but not to the extent of other steroids in the same class such as dianabol, halotestin or anadrol. Other side effects include headaches, loss of libido, diarrhea and dizziness.
STACKING AND USE
Back To Top
Anavar should be stacked with a highly androgenic compound. This can be included in a mass building stack or an injectable steroid to add a little extra boost, or in conjunction with a non-estrogenic compound. Since anavar has a low propensity for side effects, it can be used to boost other steroid gains. 0.125 mg of anavar can be used daily per pound of body weight. Men should opt for closer to 0.2 mg per pound, with women seeking 0.8 mg (per pound per day in both cases).
