Oxandrolone®, brand of Oxandrolone tablets, is an anabolic steroid, a synthetic derivative of testosterone. Each tablet contains 5 mg and 10 mg of Oxandrolone USP29, micronized grade. It is designated chemically as 17β-hydroxy-17α-methyl-2-oxa-5α-androstan-3-one.
It occurs as white odourless crystalline powder. Soluble 1 in 5200 of water, 1 in 57 of alcohol, 1 in 69 of acetone, 1 in less than 5 of chloroform and 1 in 860 of ether.
Each tablet also contains lactose monohydrate, sodium starch glycolate, polyvidone 25,000, microcrystalline cellulose and magnesium stearate as excipients. The 10 mg tablet also contains yellow ferric oxide (E172) and indigo carmine aluminium lake (E132) as colouring agent and the 5 mg tablet do not contains any colouring agent.
Oxandrolone® is a well tolerated 17-alpha alkylated anabolic steroid with very low hepatic toxicity. It promotes anabolism through androgen receptor activity and has a low incidence of adverse reactions. When taken in clinical doses, Oxandrolone® promotes improvements in strength and moderate increases in muscle mass. Oxandrolone® has been demonstrated to enhance body fat reduction significantly in both the abdominal and visceral stores (Int. J. Obesity, 1995; 19: 614-624). Oxandrolone® will not aromatize and therefore the anabolic effect of this compound can promote linear growth. Oxandrolone® has shown great promise in nerve regeneration, skin healing in burn victims, and increased rate of healing after traumatic events.
