Background & Uses

Oxymetholone is one of the strongest steroids available and is a prescription drug that you must get from a doctor. It us a synthetic anabolic steroid that is related to the male hormone testosterone. It is basically insoluble in water but is very soluble in ethanol, dioxane, ether, and chloroform. When people first started using Oxymetholone reports of patients developed leukemia, liver cancer, and esophageal cancer following Oxymetholone treatments. Even though there have been reports of these, Oxymetholone is used to treat a variety of conditions including hypogonadism and also delayed puberty. It also corrects hereditary angioneuroedema, manages breast cancer, promotes nitrogen balance after an injury or types of surgery, and also stimulates the making of red blood cells. Oxymetholone is most commonly consumed by athletes that are trying to improve their performance. They take Oxymetholone because it helps weight gain and counteracts weakness from diseases like HIV infections, burns, and also trauma. Oxymetholone is also a treatment for anemia but has so many side effects that they have since discovered new and better ways to treat it.
