Although therapy is still controversial, reports of recent experiments indicate that Oxandrolone may be effective as a growth hormone and may increase the effectiveness of growth hormone therapy.

Mechanism of Action and Pharmacokinetics

They reverse the catabolic processes and the negative nitrogen balance promoting protein synthesis and stimulating appetite if there is simultaneously a calorie and protein intake.
It is administered orally, as oxandrolone has a first half-life of 0.55 hours and another, 9 hours. It is eliminated by the kidneys and in small amounts in stool.


In adults, 2 to 4 weeks of therapy are usually adequate.

Precautions and Warnings

For Oxandrolone, no mutagenesis studies have been performed in vitro or in animals. Studies in animals that have received 9 times the human dose have shown that Oxandrolone can cause embryotoxicity, fetotoxicity and infertility and an increase in masculinization, so it should not be used during pregnancy. Employment in children and adolescents should be done with caution due to the possible premature closure of the epiphysis. The medication should be discontinued if at 6 months no results are obtained.


El uso de esteroide anabólico con adenocorticoides, glucocorticoides, medicamentos o alimentos que contienen sodio puede incrementar la posibilidad de edema.

La Oxandrolona empleada junto con anticoagulantes, puede aumentar el efecto anticoagulante.

Los esteroides anabólicos pueden disminuir la concentración de glucosa, los pacientes diabéticos deben ser monitoreados por posibles síntomas de hipoglicemia y debe ajustarse la dosis de los agentes hipoglucemiantes o insulina.

El uso simultáneo de los esteroides anabólicos con medicamentos hepatotóxicos, pueden aumentar la hepatotoxicidad, pacientes con enfermedades hepáticas deben ser monitoreados cuidadosamente.


Overdose treatment is symptomatic and supportive. In case of overdose, it is treated with emesis and / or gastric lavage. Liver function should be monitored, because hepatotoxicity is a serious possible adverse effect.

El uso simultáneo de los esteroides anabólicos con medicamentos hepatotóxicos, pueden aumentar la hepatotoxicidad, pacientes con enfermedades hepáticas deben ser monitoreados cuidadosamente.
