Anadrol/Oxandrin - AF
Oct 18, 2000

What is the difference between Anadrol-50 and Oxandrin??

Response from Dr. Fisher

Start with approved indications: Anadrol for anemia only, Oxandrin for weight gain after wasting.

O: several good published studies of its use in HIV-weight loss with and without exercise. Lots of clinical experience over the last 5-6 years in HIV/AIDS. Lots of safety data in HIV and other diseases (and a good safety record)

A: not as much research or clinical experience in HIV/AIDS, but seems effective and safe. Fewer pills than O, may be less expensive.

Hope that helps.
