Superdrol is a powerful oral anabolic steroid derived from dihydrotestosterone. It’s structure is a relative of Drostanolone. The only difference — added a methyl-radical in 17 alpha position, to increase the bioactivity when taken orally. These two drugs are very similar. Drostanolone and Methyldrostanolone does not aromatize, do not have estrogenic activity and have the same ratio of anabolic to androgen.
Laboratory studies have shown that Methyldrostanolone has 4 times more powerful anabolic activity than Methyltestosterone and at the same time is only 20% androgen. It was in demand among athletes, due to its ability to increase the dry weight without water retention or fat gain. In medicine is indicated in treatment of tumor.
Superdrol is not aromatizing and has no estrogenic activity. Anti-estrogens are not necessary, sensitive people do not feel the symptoms of gynecomastia. Typically, estrogen causes water retention, but this steroid increases quality weight without excess liquid. This makes it good for applications to «drying» when the main problem is the water retention and fat.
Superdrol is classified as an anabolic, but androgenic side effects are still possible. These may be: oily skin, acne, hair growth on the body and face. High doses are likely to cause them. This may include deepening of the voice, irregular periods, change in skin texture, facial hair growth and clitoral enlargement. Superdrol do not react with 5a-reductase and its androgenic properties can not be changed by parallel use of Finasteride or Dutasteride. This steroid with low androgenic activity, which threshold androgenic side effects are much higher than that of Testosterone, Fluoxymesterone or Methandrostenolone.
Superdrol is not recommended in case of hypersensitivity to the drug, prostate or breast carcinoma, prostate hyperplasia symptoms, nephrosis, edema, hypercalcemia, liver function disorders, diabetes, heart failure or coronary myocardial infarction, atherosclerosis in elderly men, pregnancy and lactation. Adolescents should use it caution to avoid premature cessation of growth and puberty. In case of acute overdose toxicity is low. In case of chronic overdose is possible to develop priapism.
For men effective Superdrol dose to improve the physical form is in the range of 10-20 mg per day, no more than 6-8 weeks. This level provides a significant increase in muscles and is accompanied by the burning of fat and improved rendering. Do not expect to gain 30 pounds, most will be able to add only 10 pounds. Higher doses give more stress to the liver. Sometimes (20 mg) is combined with non-toxic drugs, Testosterone type, Deca 300 or Boldenone, which increases muscle growth. For drying it is often combined with Primobolan or Trenbolone.
For women effective Superdrol dose to improve the physical form is in the range of 2,5 mg per day, no more than 4-6 weeks, to avoid the chance of virilization.
