Oxandrolone (brand names Oxandrin, Anavar, Lonavar, others), is a
synthetic, orally active anabolic-androgenic steroid (AAS) that
first become available as a prescription drug in the United States
in 1964. It is a 17α-methylated derivative of dihydrotestosterone
(DHT) that has an oxygen atom in place of the carbon at the 2
Researchers and medical professionals have used oxandrolone to
treat a wide variety of disorders. These include idiopathic short
stature, Turner syndrome, body mass loss from catabolic illness or
long-term corticosteroid treatment, severe burns, surgical or
general trauma, osteoporosis, anemia, hereditary angioedema,
HIV/AIDS-induced wasting, alcoholic hepatitis, and hypogonadism.
Oxandrolone is well-established as a safe treatment for patients
recovering from severe burns.Medical research has also established
oxandrolone's efficacy in aiding the development of girls with
Turner syndrome. Although oxandrolone has long been used to
accelerate growth in children with idiopathic short stature, it is
unlikely to increase adult height and in some cases may even
decrease it. Oxandrolone has therefore largely been replaced by
growth hormone for this use.
Some bodybuilders use oxandrolone for its muscle-building
properties, usually purchasing it from black market suppliers. This
is illegal in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and
many other countries.
This medication is used to help people regain weight they have lost
due to certain medical conditions (such as surgery, chronic
infection, trauma, long term use of corticosteroid medication such
as hydrocortisone/prednisone). It is also used to relieve bone pain
due to bone loss (osteoporosis). Oxandrolone belongs to a class of
drugs known as anabolic steroids. These drugs are similar to male
hormones made by the body.
Abuse of this medication (such as to improve athletic performance
or physical appearance) is very dangerous and may cause serious,
sometimes fatal problems.
This section contains uses of this drug that are not listed in the
approved professional labeling for the drug but that may be
prescribed by your health care professional. Use this drug for a

This medication may also be used to increase height in girls and
young women with a certain genetic disorder (Turner's syndrome).

Use this medication regularly to get the most benefit from it. To
help you remember, take it at the same times each day. This
medication is usually used for short-term treatment only.
Abnormal drug-seeking behavior is possible with this medication,
and it is frequently misused for its muscle-enhancing effects. Do
not increase your dose, take it more frequently, or take it for a
longer time than prescribed. Doing so may increase serious side

Anavar (oxandrolone), unlike most oral compounds is categorized as
a Class I anabolic steroid, most efficiently stacked with Class II
compounds such as Dianabol or Anadrol.
It adds little if anything to high-dose use of Class I anabolic
steroids such as trenbolone, or to high-dose testosterone, which is
classified as having mixed activity. It can be an aid, albeit an
expensive one, to moderate dose testosterone usage.
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
The proper conclusion is that such Anavar tablets were individually
weak, but not that the drug lacks potency.
As higher-dose Anavar tablets have become available, the
oxandrolone’s reputation has improved. However, it still is not a
particularly cost-effective Class I steroid, and if used alone
cannot match the performance of a good stack.
Pharmacologically, it has been found that oxandrolone binds weakly
to the androgen receptor. This seems inconsistent with the Class I
/ Class II system, but it is what has been found. Perhaps it is the
case that what occurs in the body is not the same as occurs in in
vitro study, or perhaps there is another interesting phenomenon
From the practical standpoint, however, oxandrolone’s stacking
behavior requires that it be classified as a Class I steroid: it
combines synergistically with those categorized as Class II, but
only additively with Class I compounds. From the practical
standpoint, it is a rather potent drug – that is to say, it has
good effectiveness per milligram. Stacked with a Class II steroid,
Anavar is quite effective at only 75 mg/day, or even 50.
Anavar does not aromatize or convert to DHT, and has an 8 hour
half-life. Thus, a moderate dose taken in the morning is largely
out of the system by night, yet supplies reasonable levels of
androgen during the day and early evening.
One study found oxandrolone to be superior to testosterone and to
Deca (nandrolone) for reducing abdominal fat in men, or at least in
obese older men at the specific low doses studied, which were not
necessarily equipotent. From this, some have made broad
generalizations to bodybuilding. However, this does not necessarily
carry over to anabolic steroid cycles at doses commonly used in
bodybuilding. In the case of the study in question, I expect the
difference in outcomes was dose-related.
In practice, at total androgen doses typically used, one can cut
just as effectively without oxandrolone as with, given any of
various possible substitutions for the oxandrolone. This is not to
say this drug is ineffective, but rather that other androgens
including testosterone are also effective at high dose for
abdominal fat loss.
In the case of low-dose use however, I do think it is a correct
conclusion that for most, low dose Anavar use is more effective for
cutting than equal dosages of most other anabolic steroids. This
may be partly or entirely from additive effect with natural
testosterone: such oxandrolone use may not suppress such its
production, the user may enjoy both the full effect of his natural
testosterone and the effect of the oxandrolone. In contrast,
low-dose testosterone or nandrolone use results in substantial
suppression of natural testosterone, and so there is less total
Oxandrolone, as with other 17-alkylated steroids, is hepatotoxic.
At one time it was thought that it is not, but both clinical and
practical experience with Oxandrin has shown that liver toxicity
can indeed be an issue with prolonged use. I believe the usual
principle of limiting 17-alkylated use to 6 weeks at a time should
be applied when oxandrolone is used, just as with any alkylated
Trenbolone or Primobolan are suitable substitutes for Anavar,
without the liver toxicity issues. As a substitute, Primobolan
shares the property of being low-suppressive, while trenbolone does
An interesting application of the drug that takes advantage of its
oral administration is use as a morning-only bridging agent between
cycles, which in my opinion should be done – if done – only after
fully recovering normal testosterone production from the last
cycle. At least 20 mg is usually acceptable in this application.
Ideally, testosterone levels will be measured to monitor such
bridging. A factor limiting to such bridging is the liver toxicity
With regard to use by women, while there is a common belief that
Anavar is minimally virilizing to female, in fact virilization is
not unusual at 20 mg/day and can occur at considerably lower doses
than that. Even 5 mg/day is not side-effect-free for all.
During a cycle, oxandrolone is not particularly recommended because
there are more cost-efficient choices that will fully accomplish
the same goals and do not add to liver toxicity.
The two best uses for Anavar are in optional bridging periods
between cycles, if such are employed, while keeping care to avoid
excessive duration of continuous 17-alkylated use; and, if
short-acting injectables are not available, to supplement cycles as
levels fall between the time of last injection and the start of
post-cycle therapy so that that time period can remain effective
