Oxymetholone comes in form of tablets that makes it easy to administer. Doses are set individually considering the weight, age, expected results and existing medical conditions. Generally, there is a dose range that is indicated for the first cycle of therapy. Each user should start with a lower dose and increase it until the most suitable dose is set. The duration of the therapy depends on how the drug works, and it may take a period of 3 months until all the desired results are obtained. It is recommended to take oxymetholone with food or milk in order to not experience stomach upset. Take the doses at the same time each day in order to better remember the schedule and not miss the doses. Benefit most of the drug by taking it as indicated and following certain doses. Do not increase the doses even if you consider that the drug does not show any results; better use it in combination with another steroid. As it is a strong steroid, increased doses may lead to severe side effects and overdose.
As alluded to above, one very important thing to acknowledge when using AAS (whether taking one hormone, stacking or cycling) is the risk of harmful side effects. Within a steroid cycle, the users will often stack other non-anabolic hormones into their program to maximize specific cycle objectives for example: the addition of drugs like Clenbuterol and/or Cytomel /T3 augment cutting/definition cycles; others called aromatase inhibitors (estrogen reducing drugs) like Letrozole . Letro and Anastrozole Arimidex are often included to inhibit the conversion of excess testosterone to negatively cycle impacting estrogen and; incorporating post-cycle therapy (PCT) drugs such as the synthetic estrogens Tamoxifen . Nolvadex , or Clomiphene Citrate . Clomid (which act as anti-estrogens in the male body), can be used alone, together, or in conjunction with those like Mesterolone . Proviron and Human Chorionic Gonadotropin ( HCG ) during PCT to bridge the gap between the end of a steroid cycle (synthetic testosterone usage) and the restoration of the bodys natural testosterone production. These drugs too must be researched, and controlled in similar fashion to AAS. Thus, steroid cycles can be as simple or complex as the users individualized goals, cycle histories and levels of understanding. Below are three samples of AAS stacked cycles of varying complexity along with a beginning PCT sample, and an explanation of goal intention & rationale for the selected compounds, dosages & durations. These illustrations and commentaries will provide a better understanding of what stacking and cycling are along with the many nuances they require.
Oxandrolone is a synthetic androstane steroid and a 17α-alkylated derivative of DHT.    It is also known as 2-oxa-17α-methyl-5α-dihydrotestosterone (2-oxa-17α-methyl-DHT) or as 2-oxa-17α-methyl-5α-androstan-17β-ol-3-one, and is DHT with a methyl group at the C17α position and the C2 carbon replaced with an oxygen atom.    Closely related AAS include the marketed AAS mestanolone (17α-methyl-DHT), oxymetholone (2-hydroxymethylene-17α-methyl-DHT), and stanozolol (a 2,3- pyrazole A ring -fused derivative of 17α-methyl-DHT) and the never-marketed/ designer AAS desoxymethyltestosterone (3-deketo-17α-methyl-δ 2 -DHT), methasterone (2α,17α-dimethyl-DHT), methyl-1-testosterone (17α-methyl-δ 1 -DHT), and methylstenbolone (2,17α-dimethyl-δ 1 -DHT).
