What Should You Know About Anavar?

What is Anavar? Anavar was first developed in 1964 by a scientist Raphael Pappo. It was artificially produced in the Searle Laboratories. Initially, this was designed to treat the muscle wasting disease, which ispredominantly seen in patients with HIV and AIDS. Later in the early 1990’s, it was adopted by Pfizir and soon marketed with the brand name Anavar. It gradually became popular among the body builders and fitness trainers as a muscle gaining pill.

Anavaris recommended to be used by people who perform rigorous workouts. But, it has been known to be in use not only among sports personal but also by people who want to gain muscles mass and strength, while being lean.

About Anavar

The usage of Anavar is specifically done by those people who work out on regular basis and is used in response to resistance exercises.

The usage is medically prescribed for patients who undergo surgery, trauma, chronic infections or people who make long term usage of steroid known as corticosteroid. Since it provides muscle strength, it is known to relieve pain which is caused by osteoporosis and arthritis.

Anabolic property of Anavar:

The steroidal drug Anavar is an anabolic compound in nature. As a steroid, it has many side-effects associated along with it.

Among many potent steroids available in the market today, Anavar is known to be of the mildest version. Thus, it is a favourite pill among female athletes too.

For male athletes, it is suggested to use up to 100 mg of dosage per day to attain the desired results.

For females, it is recommended to use the half quantity of dosage recommended for men. Since, female bodies do not contain high amount of steroids in their blood, usage of high doss may create potential side-effects.

How is Anavar formed as a mild steroid?

Anavar is formed by altering the dihydrotestoserone with oxygen atom and replacing it with two carbon elements and methylation. Since, only one position of oxygen atom is altered; the body does not treat it as a dihydrotestoserone; instead it treats it as a new chemical androgen which works to improve the muscles of the body.

The earlier version of Anavar (oxandrolone) contained few side-effects; however there is no possible risky side-effect associated with usage of Anavar.


The possible side-effects when the usage of this drug is abused are: imbalance in cholesterol levels, liver damage, improper functioning of kidneys or stones in kidney and heart strokes.

Since the drug contains anabolic properties, few noticeable and immediate side-effects are body hair, acne, oily skin, harsh, depend voice and shortness of breath or anxiety issues.


The dosage of Anavar changes between male and female. Females are suggested to start from lower doses by taking a dose of 5 to 10 mg only.

For men the dosage may vary from 10 mg to 20 mg. A moderate dosage of Anavar is between 40 to 60 mg of Anavar per day.
