GHB's unique attributes have some legitimate uses. In Europe, it is still used as an anesthetic, for alcohol and opiate addiction therapy, and for narcolepsy therapy. Only this last indication of narcolepsy is recognized by the US Food and Drug Administration, which recently approved GHB (ie, sodium oxybate [Xyrem]) to treat a small subset of patients with narcolepsy who have episodes of weak or paralyzed muscles (ie, cataplexy). Because of sodium oxybate's history of abuse as a recreational drug, the FDA approved it as a Schedule III Controlled Substance. A limited distribution program that includes physician education, patient education, a patient and physician registry, and detailed patient surveillance has been established. Under the program, prescribers and patients will be able to obtain the product only through a single centralized pharmacy.
We've already discussed this steroids strong hepatotoxic nature above, and as such, caution must be applied. Beyond this factor, like all DHT anabolic steroids Anadrol 50 will not aromatize; however, for reasons that are to this day still somewhat of a mystery it will carry strong estrogenic properties. Those who supplement with Anadrol 50 can fall prey to Gynecomastia, massive increases in blood pressure, and of course, water retention as discussed above. Each and every one of these adverse reactions can occur, and in a significant fashion, but for the healthy adult male, all hope is not lost; far from it. To combat such issues, those who supplement with Anadrol 50 will find the use of aromatase inhibitors (AI's) to be tremendously beneficial; the same AI's we often use to combat aromatizing steroids. Further, living a lifestyle that promotes a healthy blood pressure is imperative, as well as making sure you're not overeating abundantly; especially carbohydrates. If you can do these things, assuming you had a healthy blood pressure to begin with you will enjoy successful supplementation; it should go without saying, those who have preexisting high blood pressure should not supplement.
