    Anadrol Use in the Medical Field 
    #1
    Bluelight
    I've found medical use of oxymetholone pretty interesting as it is revered by bodybuilders as a very potent drug and it's one of the few drugs that has been used in much higher doses in clinical settings than in performance enhancing settings. It has a common and eemingly misplaced reputation as being extremely liver toxic among other things.

    I had access to a large medical database at my old job and pulled dozens of studies detailing dosages of 100-250mg/day for anywhere from 6 months to three years - primarily treating anemia patients.

    Don't have those studies anymore but figured I would link a few here that I have found and see if anyone had any others or personal experiences. Anadrol is used in fairly large doses by many pros and probably going to try a higher dose run myself here soon.

    Oxymetholone ameliorates insulin sensitivity in maintenance hemodialysis patients: a randomized controlled trial.
    Men and women given 100mg per day -

    Bone marrow treatment failure - women started at 100mg per day, men started at 500mg per day

    The PDF of this one has therapy at 150mg per day for 30 weeks with no virulization in females

    This one is 100-150mg administered daily for 16 weeks to men and women

    I have a selection of papers on anadrol that I'll try to fish out later, particularly pertaining to its use in elderly women. I used them to convince my Mum to do the occasional cycle to maintain muscle mass and bone density now she's in her 60s

    Damn that's interesting to hear! What was the dose/duration and results/side effects like for her?

    I wanna say isnt the therapeutic dose like 1-3mg/kg of bodyweight? I saw a study of people running over 300/day anadrol for anemia over the course of 6 months or so.

    Yeah the guideline I've seen listed is 1-5mg/kg...can't even imagine 500mg a day for someone my weight. Honestly though I may try it just for shits and to see if I can snag a 650-700lb deadlift PR
