Many people like the sound of anadrol, when they hear about its benefits.

Huge muscle gains and crazy increases in strength…boom!

However, some people become wary/put off when they hear about A-drol's potential side effects. Hence how many people have conflicting opinions on this sterod from…



It gave me man boobs, I almost killed my girlfriend and had to ask Father Christmas for a new liver.

So, are anadrol's side effects overrated or is it simply a toxic steroid? You're about to find out right now in my anadrol review.

The following is knowledge gained from reading about people's real-life experiences with anadrol on various forums. In this article I've simply summarized all the pros and cons that they faced when they took the bulking steroid.


  • HUGE Muscle/Strength Gains

Anadrol is probably the greatest steroid in the world for building huge amounts of muscle mass.

…even ahead of dianabol!

Your muscles are going to blow up bigger and faster than ever. And you're going to be lifting weights that you could of only dreamed of lifting before. And this can all happen in just the first week of taking anadrol.

Many who have taken anadrol and have got on well with it, include it in their ‘best ever stack'.

Rich Piana did just this, claiming his best ever cycle was when he stacked anadrol with trenbolone and testosterone. It's thought that stacking it alongside androgenic steroids helps maximize its effects.

The recommended dose for taking anadrol is 50-100mg. If you've only recently started taking it you should start at 50mg, and if you've been on anadrol before you can go as high as 100mg. Anything above 100mg though is just asking for trouble.

Anadrol is powerful enough as it is.

…and if there's one steroid you shouldn't overdose on – it's A-drol.

However, all of these gains come at a price, as your side effects are going to be more (compared to taking other anabolics).


  • Bad for Liver
  • Water retention
  • Shuts you down
  • High blood pressure (hypertension)

Liver Stress

Like other steroids, anadrol can also cause damage to the liver. Thus it would be a good idea to keep your anadrol cycles as short as possible and supplement with milk thistle.

Your dose amount, the duration of your cycle and the amount of alcohol you drink, will determine how much damage will be caused to your liver on A-drol.

For this reason it's ideal to take a short cycle (3-6 weeks) and avoid any alcohol consumption whatsoever when taking this compound. Also if you're on any medication, check with your doctor to see if it's toxic on the liver. Because if it is, combining them it anadrol isn't a good idea.

Water Retention

Some people say,

“If you don't want to look fat on anadrol, get lean before taking it.”

The reason for this is because it causes significant amounts of water retention, making you look smooth and puffy. However, if you're already lean and eat a clean diet, you're less likely to look like a bloated, fat mess.

Because you'll gain a lot of water weight on anadrol, you'll also lose some size once you finish your cycle.

Testosterone Shutdown

There's no questioning your testosterone levels whilst taking anadrol…you'll feel like Superman.

However, post-cycle is a different story altogether. Anadrol will shut you down hard, compared to other compounds…meaning your test will take a while to recover. As a result, your immune system will be weak and you can become a bit fluey.

This is why many guys who use anadrol, take testosterone with it to reduce these low-T symptoms.

So, say you take anadrol for 5 weeks, you could take testosterone for 8 weeks.

High Blood Pressure

If you've got high blood pressure, you're not necessarily going to know about it through physical side effects; hence how it's known as ‘the silent killer'.

Some say you know your blood pressure is high on anadrol when you start to get regular headaches. However, it's better to get a health check from a doctor so you know exactly what's going on before/throughout your cycle.

As many precautions as possible should be taken when taking powerful drugs like steroids.


Anadrol poses the same side effects as other steroids; but they're just more intense. This is why dianabol is usually the preferred option, as it's not as toxic as anadrol and can almost match its gains.

However, the people who do decide to take anadrol will experience muscle mass and strength gains that no other steroid can match.

…That's if they stack it with other bulking compounds like dianabol, testosterone and trenbolone.

I hope you've learned something new from reading this anadrol review and have a good understanding of the pros and cons this steroid can bring to the table.
