What is Superdrol

Superdrol is an anabolic steroid with a unique history compared to many anabolic steroids. While an anabolic steroid, the active hormone Methyldrostanolone had never been placed on the controlled substance list in the U.S. In 2005, it would hit the shelves of most major supplement companies and enjoyed massive success. However, in 2006 due to tremendous FDA pressure, Superdrol was discontinued. While the Superdrol brand was short-lived, over-the-counter, and black-market, Methyldrostanolone would continue to appear worldwide until mid-2012. In 2012 Methyldrostanolone was placed on the U.S. controlled substance list and classified as a Schedule III controlled substance along with all anabolic steroids. Methyldrostanolone or Superdrol, while it did not appear on the market until 2005, is not a new anabolic steroid. Syntex first created the Methyldrostanolone hormone in 1959 at the same time as Drostanolone (Masteron) and Oxymetholone (Anadrol). However, the Methyldrostanolone hormone never received a pharmaceutical push like the other two hormones. The exception would be its inclusion in Dimethazine, a compound metabolically dissolved and converted to Methyldrostanolone post-administration. As we dive into the Superdrol compound, as you may have already guessed, we will find it is very similar to Drostanolone or the popular anabolic steroid Masteron.


The benefits of Superdrol

Through its marketing campaign, it was touted as being a more powerful mass builder than Anadrol. However, athletes who have used both will attest the effects of Superdrol will in no way lead to mass gains comparable to Anadrol's. However, significant improvements in lean tissue can be made as long as adequate calories are consumed. An increase of 5-10lbs is more than possible and will not be accompanied by the water retention Anadrol often brings. The individual should also find he can make cleaner off-season gains due to the effects of Superdrol promoting a more robust metabolism. This is not to say body fat cannot be gained, but you should be able to use your caloric surplus better when Superdrol is in play.

The effects of Superdrol can also be very beneficial to the dieting athlete as a cutting steroid. This compound will significantly preserve lean tissue during a caloric deficit, a key component to successful dieting. To lose body fat, we must burn more calories than we consume. This puts lean tissue at risk as the body will take what it needs to meet its energy demands from anywhere it can get it. The body's natural survival instinct will often take energy from muscle tissue rather than body fat. The key to successful dieting is ensuring that fat is lost and the lean tissue we hold is preserved. The effects of Superdrol will ensure this goal is met. Through the results of Superdrol, the individual should also notice greatly improved conditioning in terms of a dryer, more complex look. This isn't all that surprising when we consider this steroid is, in many ways, oral Masteron, a steroid well known for promoting such traits. Regardless of your reason for use, bulking, or cutting, the effects of Superdrol will improve recovery and muscular endurance. In this regard, we cannot call it the most potent steroid, but the improvements will be significant, as with all steroids, the most important. You will not tire out as fast, allowing work to be done at a maximum level for extended periods. This does not mean training time frames need to be increased; instead, they become more efficient. The entire point behind anabolic steroid use is to take what you're already doing right and do it better. Then we have recovery, where the effects of Superdrol, as with many anabolic steroids, become invaluable. Recovery is where progress is made. Progress isn't made in the gym when training. When training, we are tearing our muscle tissue down, and when we recover, this is where it is built, repaired, and becomes stronger.


Side effects of Superdrol

There are possible side effects of Superdrol all users must be aware of. This is not what we'd label an unfriendly anabolic steroid, but the possible side effects of Superdrol can be potentially problematic in a few key areas. Those with high cholesterol or existing liver issues must not use this anabolic steroid. If you are healthy enough for use, you will need to put a reasonable effort into controlling these areas of your health. To help you understand the possible side effects of Superdrol, we have broken them down into separate categories, along with all the information you'll need.


: The side effects of Superdrol do not include any of an estrogenic nature. Gynecomastia and water retention will be impossible with this steroid. An anti-estrogen is not necessary due to the use of Methyldrostanolone. The side effects of Superdrol can include those of an androgenic nature. However, the threshold for such products should be pretty high with most men due to their low androgenic nature. Possible androgenic side effects of Superdrol include acne, hair loss in those predisposed to male pattern baldness, and body hair growth. These effects are highly dependent on genetic predispositions, but even if sensitive, you will not be able to reduce the androgenicity of this hormone. The Methyldrostanolone hormone is not metabolized by the 5-alpha reductase enzyme making 5-alpha reductase inhibitors like Finasteride useless with this steroid.


Androgenic: the androgenic nature of Superdrol can also promote virilization in women. Such side effects of Superdrol include body hair growth, a deepening of the vocal cords, and clitoral enlargement. Despite carrying a low androgenic nature, the translating androgenic activity in women appears firmer than its rating would imply. Use without virilization is possible, but it will take shallow doses. Most women will find other anabolic steroids like Oxandrolone (Anavar) to be better choices. If a female athlete decides to try Superdrol, it should be discontinued immediately if virilization symptoms begin to show. If use is stopped at the onset of symptoms, they will fade away rapidly. If the symptoms are ignored, and use continues, they may become irreversible.



Cardiovascular: The side effects of Superdrol in this category can be some of the most concerning. The Methyldrostanolone hormone can have a strong, negative impact on lipids by significantly lowering HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol) and increasing LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol). Methyltestosterone may also hurt blood pressure despite carrying no estrogenic activity and no water retention. However, cholesterol issues are far more likely than blood pressure, but both are possible.


Due to the possible cardiovascular issues created by Superdrol, a healthy lifestyle will be imperative. Those with high blood pressure or cholesterol should not supplement with this steroid. A cholesterol-friendly lifestyle will be crucial if you are healthy enough to use blood pressure. The individual's diet should be rich in omega fatty acids; daily fish oil supplementation is highly advised. The individual should also strictly limit saturated fats and simple sugars and ensure he implements daily cardiovascular activity into his routine. The use of a cholesterol antioxidant supplement is also highly advised.


Testosterone: The side effects of Superdrol will include natural testosterone suppression in all men who use the steroid, and it will be significant. The use of exogenous testosterone is advised. Those who do not include exogenous testosterone of some form with their Superdrol use will place their body in a low testosterone state. The structure of testosterone you choose is inconsequential; all that matters is your body receives the testosterone it needs, as this hormone is essential to a healthy, properly functioning body.


Once the use of Superdrol has ended and all exogenous hormones have cleared the system, natural testosterone production will begin again. However, levels will still be low, and most are encouraged to implement a Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) program. A PCT program will stimulate natural testosterone production, which will protect your physique as well as your overall health. It will also significantly cut down the total time to recovery. A PCT plan will not return your testosterone levels to normal on its own, this will take some time, but it will ensure you have enough testosterone for proper bodily function.


An important note on natural testosterone recovery – natural testosterone recovery assumes no damage was done to the body due to improper supplementation practices. It also believes there was no prior existing low testosterone condition.


Hepatotoxicity: Superbowl, like all C17-aa anabolic steroids, is hepatotoxic and can potentially stress and damage the liver. Use must not be undertaken if the liver isn't healthy. During use, liver enzyme values will increase in all who use this steroid. However, an increase in liver enzyme values does not equate to damage but is instead an indicator of stress. However, it will lead to damage if possible precautions are not followed. All who supplement with Superdrol must follow the following recommendations: 

No other C17-aa steroids should be used during Superdrol use.

Excess alcohol consumption must be avoided. Heavy alcohol consumption is tremendously stressful to the liver on its own, and Superdrol use will lead to severe liver stress and greatly exasperate the probability of liver damage. Most are encouraged to avoid all alcohol consumption while using this steroid. Keep in mind the only reason to use this steroid is for performance purposes, and not only will the added alcohol damage your health there is no substance as anti-performance as alcohol.

Over-the-counter medications should be avoided at all times, when possible. Many over-the-counter medications are hepatotoxic and, in many cases, just as if not more than many anabolic steroids. Use should be limited to when only necessary.

Total use should not exceed eight weeks; most will find a six-week time frame best. No C17-aa steroids, including Superdrol, should be used for at least 6-8 weeks post Superdrol use, and a longer time frame of no service will be healthier.

The use of a liver detoxification supplement is highly advised when using Superdrol. If you follow the above guidelines, it will be possible to protect your liver's health, but you will need to keep an eye on it. All who supplement with Superdrol are strongly encouraged to keep a close eye on their blood pressure, cholesterol, and liver health.



Standard male Superdrol doses will fall in the 10-20mg per day range for 6-8 weeks. This will equate to 1-2 capsules per day taken with food. Those who enjoy a high level of toleration can consider 30mg per day their next go around with the steroid, but this is not advised for most. Doses of 30mg daily or more will incredibly stress the liver, and caution is strongly recommended.

Superdrol stacks well with almost all anabolic steroids. A simple stack of Superdrol and some form of testosterone is most common and will greatly benefit any bulking or cutting plan. Additional Nandrolone is a very common part of the stack during bulking phases, as is Trenbolone during the cutting phase. There is no reason any man could not enjoy success with such plans.
