The name Superdrol is short for “Super Anadrol”, however this drug is also known as methasteron and methyldrostanolone. Even though the name is linked to Anadrol (oxymetholone) they have nothing in common and the name was chosen more for marketing than reality. Superdrol is a close derivative of drostanolone (masteron). The only difference to the molecule is the addition of a c17 alpha methyl group, this was done to allow oral administration.
Methyldrostanolone was developed in 1959 by Synex, but Superdrol in its actual form was never sold as a commercial medical product. Instead a modified version known as dimethazine was sold for a short period before being discontinued.
In 2005, Superdrol was rereleased as an over the counter designer steroid. It was sold in many supplement stores without restriction. This was pulled off thanks to a “grey area” in the 1990 Anabolic Steroid Control Act and 2004 revision. The law is, in part, drug-specific and Superdrol was not declared a Schedule III class anabolic steroid in that act because it was not commercially available at the time the act, and its subsequent revision, were signed into law. Superdrol was therefore being sold as an over-the-counter dietary supplement.
Superdrol share many characteristics of its parent hormone Masteron, both are non-aromatizable so estrogenic activity is minimal. Androgenic side-effects are very rare, but still possible. Superdrol is c17 alpha alkylated compound, so hepatotoxicty is a real concern. Consequently it is recommended that cycles are limited to a maximum of 4 to 6 weeks.
Athletes mainly favor Superdrol for its moderate anabolic properties and fat burning ability. Dosages are in the range of 10 to 30mg per day and it’s advisable that a non-toxic injectable like testosterone or deca is stacked with it for best results. Superdrol cycles have a measurable impact on muscle gains accompanied by fat loss and increased definition.
Woman can use superdrol at 2.5mg per day. Cycles should be limited to 4-6 weeks to minimize the chance of virilization.
Superdrol should not be confused with the pro-hormone superbol. Methyldrostanolone is not a pro-hormone, because it’s not a precursor to another hormone. Instead it’s already in its complete active form and no conversion or alterations will take place after ingestion via enzymatic processes.
Suggested Dosage and Administration
There are many different methods to Superdrol cycles depending on your goal and situation.
Generally, 10mg to 20mg for 4 to 6 weeks is standard. If you take a higher dosage for longer you could have liver issues.
Since the half-life is approx 8 hours you might want to consider splitting the dosage depending on what type of result you’d like to achieve.
