    Anavar questions

    As some of you may know, I was prescribed 50 mg of anavar daily for metabolic syndrome. Since none of us can go to the gym, will it be useless to take it when I receive my prescription over the weekend? Unfortunately, I will have to start taking it because I need to have a liver function test performed in 12 weeks. In other words, whether it is useless or not, I'm still taking it...

    Also, I was performing some research and I could have sworn someone stated to take it with either a grapefruit in the morning or with a healthy dose of naringin to have more of the var in one's system. Is there any truth to this or is it just bro-science?

    Lastly what are the side effects of this, aside from liver processing? Someone I know who took it stated that I could expect headaches the first few days, but that is about it. I'm more worried about insomnia because I sleep like crap as it is...

    Yes, of course start using it.

    ride a bike pushups situps jumprope lift 5 gallon buckets of water etc.

    Anavar is a wonderful product youve hit the jackpot.

    Personally have never experienced any of those negative side effects.

    If you're prescribed it, then absolutely take it. You're taking it for a specific medical reason, don't let bodybuilding cloud that.

    It was created to help prevent muscle wasting, so at least it should help with that.

    I've used it, and the only side effect I got was lower back pumps while lifting. I had to be aware of them, and ride the line between pumps and painful cramps.

    I think your grapefruit theory is broscience

    When I use it, or did. Always with coffee - there is some science there. I no longer have access to those links.

    If your doc has you on it and you're doing blood work well... You should take it

    You aren't taking this for bodybuilding purposes as CJ said. You have a legit medical reason. 50mg?! Seems a little high. Especially if you're getting REAL var. Are you use it's not .5mg?

    It's been so long since I used var alone, I think really I just broke out badly. Due to the Andro vs. Anabolic raiting. If we are speaking science and bodybuilding, I feel superdrol is far more superior. I think var is over rated. I like it but, much rather superdrol.

    This is in my patient notes:
    BEGIN OXANDROLONE (Anavar) 50 mg everyday (or 25 mg by mouth 2 times a day). For metabolic syndrome, visceral fat loss.

    EDIT: I found this one, so with coffee it is: http://www.adop.pt/media/4114/Oxandr...ne_dosing_.pdf

    Yes 25mg twice a day is a very common anavar dose. Take it just as the doctor said to.

    as stated this is for medical purposes.

    with that said continue to train (even with gyms closed) push ups, pull ups, abs, curls, bike, whatever you have access to. If you dont have access to any types of weights then use your body weight.

    Now you are getting the benefits of the medical purpose with possible benefits from working out with it...win win

    Same here; lower back and calf pumps/cramps. Mine went away after the first couple weeks though, and with the addition of some electrolytes (can't say if that had an effect or not for sure).
    I never had any headaches or insomnia, and I seem to be somewhat headache-prone with a few other meds.

    I want your doctor. Hahaha.

    What do people attribute the lower back pumps too? I have never heard of this in relation to anavar/oxandrolone.

    Keep an eye on hdl and id recommend citrus bergamot to help raise those hdl levels while using var... It has a propencity to destroy good cholesterol... Other than that coffee up and drain that swamp (of visceral fat)
