Anavar (oxandrolone) is a synthetic anabolic-androgenic steroid that was first developed in the early 1960s. It is a derivative of dihydrotestosterone (DHT), and it has a high anabolic to androgenic ratio, which means that it has a strong anabolic effect while having a relatively weak androgenic effect.
One of the main benefits of Anavar is that it is known for having relatively low androgenic effects compared to other anabolic steroids. This means that it is less likely to cause androgenic side effects such as acne, hair loss, and prostate enlargement. This makes it a popular choice among athletes and bodybuilders who are looking to minimize the risk of these types of side effects while still experiencing the performance-enhancing effects of anabolic steroids.
Anavar is also known for being a relatively mild steroid, and it is generally well-tolerated by most people. However, it can have a range of side effects. These can include liver toxicity, cardiovascular problems, and changes in cholesterol levels.
In addition to its use as a performance-enhancing drug, Anavar has also been used for medical purposes. It has been used to help promote weight gain in individuals who have abnormal or involuntary weight loss, and to help offset protein catabolism that occurs due to long-term corticosteroid therapy. Anavar has also been used to treat osteoporosis and to stimulate growth in children with Turner syndrome or who are born small for gestational age.

Recommended working doses
For amateurs, 20-30 mg per day. More preferred drug for amateurs, because of its less toxicity to the liver.
For professionals, 50 to 80 mg per day. The dosage of more than 80 mg per week negatively affects the liver, thus negating the effectiveness of increasing the dosage, so it is necessary to limit the dosage to 50 mg per day.
