Is there an effective alternative to anadrol 50?

Anabolic steroids. Anadrol (oxymetholone, a very potent anabolic steroid) is used by doctors to treat HIV wasting syndrome, and sometimes by body builders. Alternatives to anadrol depend on the reason for taking it. Body builders who take anadrol risk serious side effects, including acne, male breast development, water retention, and liver problems (hepatitis, cirrhosis, liver cancer).
