The most common daily dose of Anapolon is 100mg, but even at that dosage side-effects like water-retention, elevated blood pressure, acne, hair loss, blood clotting changes, gynocomastia, liver toxicity and mood swings are very often reported. Using aromatase inhibitors to control estrogen aromatization will be ineffective as this drug does not directly convert into estrogen. It was suggested that oxymetholone can activate the estrogen receptor, similar to, but more profoundly than the estrogenic androgen methandriol. Supplements like Milk Thistle can be taken to help keep liver enzyme levels between safe ranges.
