According to analysis of Androlic, oxymetholone is, in general, an oral anabolic steroid which has a powerful nature of dihydrotestosterone and is more often known by its famous brand name Androlic 50. People taking Androlic tablets for bodybuilding will find that they quickly become more active, and that dramatic muscle gains will be visible in a short time compared with many other types of anabolic steroids. According to British Dispensary, the supplement improves nitrogen balance when the diet contains a sufficient number of calories. The actions of Anadrol are very similar to those of testosterone and can cause some serious problems related to sexual and physical growth if this steroid is given to children.
In 2005, Superdrol was rereleased as an over the counter designer steroid. It was sold in many supplement stores without restriction. This was pulled off thanks to a “grey area” in the 1990 Anabolic Steroid Control Act and 2004 revision. The law is, in part, drug-specific and Superdrol was not declared a Schedule III class anabolic steroid in that act because it was not commercially available at the time the act, and its subsequent revision, were signed into law. Superdrol was therefore being sold as an over-the-counter dietary supplement.
Transdermal patches (adhesive patches placed on the skin) may also be used to deliver a steady dose through the skin and into the bloodstream. Testosterone-containing creams and gels that are applied daily to the skin are also available, but absorption is inefficient (roughly 10%, varying between individuals) and these treatments tend to be more expensive. Individuals who are especially physically active and/or bathe often may not be good candidates, since the medication can be washed off and may take up to six hours to be fully absorbed. There is also the risk that an intimate partner or child may come in contact with the application site and inadvertently dose himself or herself; children and women are highly sensitive to testosterone and can suffer unintended masculinization and health effects, even from small doses. Injection is the most common method used by individuals administering AAS for non-medical purposes.
