History of Methenolone:
In 1960, methenolone (also known as Primobolan) was discovered. In 1962, the Squibb Company began developing injectable drugs. Methenolone was first given for muscle loss following operations, infections, long-term illnesses, harsh corticosteroid medication, or starvation, and it was also used to treat osteoporosis and breast cancer in some circumstances.
Chemical Formula of Methenolone:
Indication of Methenolone:
Methenolone enanthate was routinely used without negative effects to increase weight gain in newborns who weighed less than average. Methenolone is an anabolic steroid that is a modification of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) with a modest anabolic effect and weak androgenic activity. Methenolone is renowned for its ability to bind to androgen receptors more strongly than testosterone.
Mechanism of action of Methenolone:
It does not produce estrogens when it interacts with the aromatase enzyme. It’s utilized by persons who are sensitive to estrogenic adverse effects because it’s less estrogenic than nandrolone.
How to use methenolone enanthate:
Adult doses for aplastic anaemia treatment typically vary from 1–3 mg/kg per day. Naturally, the injection is thought to have better bioavailability. It’s an enanthate ester with a long half-life. It has a greater survival rate since it bypasses hepatic breakdown on the first run. The tablets are made of acetate, which has a short half-life. For oral bioavailability, methenolone is 1-methylated rather than 17-alpha-alkylated. Methenolone enanthate has no estrogenic side effects and has a negligible influence on cholesterol levels.
Fluid and electrolyte retention, hypercalcemia, accelerated bone growth, and skeletal weight is some of the negative side effects. Priapism, azoospermia, hirsutism, male pattern baldness, acne, and edema are all common adverse effects in men.
