Anavar is no longer manufactured by legitimate pharmacies, so no matter what anyone tells you about this or that brand being “pharm grade”, all anavar is being manufactured by underground labs and the typical dosage is 10 mgs a pill – far greater than the original intended dosing. Then again, how can you ever be sure what the exact dosage is? Different underground labs may use their own title for the drug, but most simply call it, not by its chemical name “Oxandrolone”, but by the original brand name of “Anavar.”
The price of Anavar for 100 tablets () ranges anywhere from $100-$150. However, the drug is in high demand and there are a lot of reports about counterfeit Anavar formulations. Many suppliers sell fake drugs and because the buyer is performing an illegal act to begin with, he/she has little recourse. Always get your supply from a reputable dealer. Many body builders also get their supplies from Mexico, but the purity or the quality cannot be guaranteed. On the other hand, if you want to be safe and have the money, the “real” Anavar sold from the pharmacies costs anywhere from $700-1200 for 100 tablets.
In the case of low-dose use however, I do think it is a correct conclusion that for most, low dose Anavar use is more effective for cutting than equal dosages of most other anabolic steroids . This may be partly or entirely from additive effect with natural testosterone: such oxandrolone use may not suppress such its production, the user may enjoy both the full effect of his natural testosterone and the effect of the oxandrolone. In contrast, low-dose testosterone or nandrolone use results in substantial suppression of natural testosterone, and so there is less total effect.
