Default Anyone use Anavar?

Anyone here use anavar? I am completely unsophisticated when it comes to supplements and meds, but I have heard various things about anavar. I came across it when talking about the Olympics with a friend of mine that has some knowledge of the inner-workings of some European teams. I know its not for "super bulk" but it also doesn't seem to have the same side-effects as a true anabolic (which anavar is not?).

The summary I have heard about anavar is that, while safer, it's just too expensive for the results you get. Anyone have thoughts or comments on it?

Primary Uses: Oxandrolone is an oral drug used to promote weight gain in humans experiencing atrophy of the muscles including HIV- and other muscle wasting ailments.

There are three principal uses of Oxandrolone in popular cycling. The first is to cut fat and to keep muscle mass. The second is to gain strength while staying at the same relative weight (i.e. athletes such as wrestlers and boxers). And the third is to bridge from one cycle to another.

Oxandrolone is a mild, low androgen 17-alpha alkylated anabolic steroid with very low toxicity. Preferred by thousands of men and women users because it promotes protein anabolism and rarely caused adverse reaction. Oxandrolone is primarily used to promote strength and muscle hardness. In the International Journal of Obesity, (1995; 19: 614-624), it was shown that Oxandrolone enhanced body fat reduction significantly in both the abdominal and visceral stores.

Cycles and Stacks: Oxandrolone is not a steroid to bulk up on; yet, it is often part of a bulking stack. It could be combined with testosterone or Methandienone to accent these highly androgenic compounds.

You can add Oxandrolone to a cutting stack, with Stanazol, or EQ for example. Also it has been included in bulking stacks along with a test. It is not toxic to the liver as with other 17AA steroids, again this makes it very sought after. Most novices who cannot bring themselves to try injectables look to Oxandrolone for a first cycle.

Effective Dose: 5-15mg p/day orally for women and 30-50mg p/day for men.

Side Effects: Athletes claim that this drug is unsurpassed in its ability to promote strength without water weight gains. Oxandrolone will not aromatize at any dosage, which makes it ideal for steroid users with potential hypertension complications as well as pre-existing gynecomastia.

anavar is one of my favorites. if i had only 4 AAS to build all future cycles, they'd be: Test, Tren, Anavar, Dbol.

anavar at 20mg/day has been enough for me to notice an improvement int he gym and recover as well as conditioning and body comp/hardness.

many claim its a weak anabolic (it IS an anabolic) but if you use it in doses of 50mg/day or so it's not hard to gain some real lean, quality mass and strenght.

as powder it can be found very reasonably priced.

lol, yeah a little vague huh

ok, I feel given the amount that I had to use in order to see any tangible results, I feel I could have gotten much better results with other methods/products/diet...this is all after the fact...
