Oxymetholone (also known as anapolon or anadrol) is a very drastic synthetic steroid, 17-alpha-alkylated modification of dihydrotestosterone. It was developed for the treatment of osteoporosis and anaemia, as well as to stimulate muscle gain in malnourished and debilitated patients. Oxymetholone has been approved by the American Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in humans. Later there where created non-steroidal drugs that effectively could treat anaemia and osteoporosis; because of this anapolon lost his popularity and by 1993 Syntex decided to cease the production of the drug, as well as other manufacturers did.
Winstrol will also drastically reduce HDL cholesterol levels and increase LDL levels which will bump up your blood pressure.

To prevent yourself from experiencing low T, it’d be ideal to run testosterone as your coming off winstrol to keep this muscle-building hormone high. This will also help cement your gains, helping you hang on to the muscle you’ve gained on winny.
