Oxandrolone will not aromatize, and therefore the anabolic effect of this compound can actually promote linear growth. Women usually tolerate this drug well at low doses, and at one time it was prescribed for the treatment of osteoporosis. It also has a reduced androgenic activity. This product is known as a good agent for the promotion of strength and quality physique improvement, although the mild nature of this compound makes it less than ideal for adding a significant amount of body weight. Studies using moderate dosages of this compound note minimal interferences with natural testosterone production. Likewise when it is used alone, even in larger amounts, there is typically no need for auxiliary drugs like Clomiphene Citrate/Tamoxifen Citrate or HCG , as it will not aromatize at any dosage. It is particularly suitable for users over forty years old.
The standard dosage for men is in the range of 20-30mg (2-3 tablets) per day, a level that should produce noticeable results. It can be further combined with anabolics like Stanozolol to elicit a harder, more defined look without added water retention. Such combinations are very popular and can dramatically enhance the physique. Women would be quite comfortable with Oxandrolone at a daily dosage of 5mg. Oxandrolone has a half-life of 8 hours. 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. Alternatively, the tablets can be taken two to three times daily after meals thus assuring an optimal absorption of the substance.
Oxandrolone also combines very well with Testosterone Undecanoate (Andriol), since it does not aromatize easily and has only a slight influence on the hormone production. The daily intake of 240 mg Testosterone Undecanoate and 15 mg Oxandrolone results in a good improvement in physique quality without excessive water retention and without significant influence on testosterone production.
