Superdrol (Methyldrostanolone)

First of all, before you read this article, I will say that the first portion of this page is heavily borrowed from this article on It is a fantastic article and I highly recommend reading it if you want to learn more about Superdrol. What I will add to it is my own personal experience which is what I feel that I do best. I won’t BS you and tell you that if you use something like this, that life will be magical and your bodybuilding dreams will come true. In fact, I am not recommending to anyone that they use Superdrol. This steroid is no joke and can carry some life-threatening risks if not used correctly. (Seriously, people have died from misuse) Read on if you want to learn more:

Superdrol Functions & Traits:

Superdrol is an anabolic androgenic steroid comprised of the active steroidal hormone Methyldrostanolone. This is a dihydrotestosterone (DHT)derived anabolic steroid or more specifically a structurally altered form of Drostanolone. Superdrol is simply the Drostanolone hormone with an added methyl group at the 17th carbon position that allows the hormone to survive oral ingestion and officially classifies it as a C17-alpha alkylated (C17-aa) anabolic steroid. It also carries an added methyl group at the carbon two position, which greatly increases its anabolic power.These slight alterations will also reduce Superdrol’s androgenicity compared to Masteron, which isn’t all that androgenic to begin with.

On a structural basis, Superdrol carries an anabolic rating of 400;nearly four times that of Masteron. It will also carry an androgenic rating of 20, which is extremely mild. This is a non-aromatizing anabolic steroid carrying no estrogenic or progesterone activity.

Effects of Superdrol:

When looking at the effects of Superdrol, the best way to describe the steroid as is a total body transforming product. Through its marketing campaign it was touted as being a more powerful mass builder than Anadrol, hence the name Superdrol; a play on words“Super Anadrol.” However, athletes who have used both will attest the effects of Superdrol will in no way lead to mass gains even comparable to Anadrol. However, significant gains in lean tissue can be made so as long as adequate calories are consumed. A gain of 5-10 lbs is more than possible and will not be accompanied by the water retention Anadrol often brings. The individual should also find he is able to make cleaner off-season gains due to the effects of Superdrol promoting a stronger metabolism. This is not to say body fat cannot be gained, but you should be able to make better use of your caloric surplus when Superdrol is in play.

Side Effects of Superdrol:

There are possible side effects of Superdrol all users must be aware of.This is not what we’d label an unfriendly anabolic steroid, but the possible side effects of Superdrol can be potentially problematic in a few key areas. Those with high cholesterol or existing liver issues must not use this anabolic steroid. If you are healthy enough for use, you will need to put in a good bit of effort into controlling these areas of your health.

Androgenic: The side effects of Superdrol can include those of an androgenic nature. However, due to a low androgenic nature the threshold for such effects should be fairly high with most men. Possible androgenic side effects of Superdrol include acne, hair loss in those predisposed to male pattern baldness and body hair growth. These effects are highly dependent on genetic predispositions, but even if sensitive you will not be able to reduce the androgenicity of this hormone. The Methyldrostanolone hormone is not metabolized by the 5-alpha reductase enzyme making 5-alpha reductase inhibitors like Finasteride useless with this steroid.

The androgenic nature of Superdrol can also promote virilization in women. Such side effects of Superdrol include body hair growth, a deepening of the vocal chords and clitoral enlargement. Despite carrying a low androgenic nature the translating androgenic activity in women does appear to be stronger than its rating would imply. Use without virilization is possible, but it will take very low doses.Most women will find other anabolic steroids like Oxandrolone (Anavar) to be better choices.

Cardiovascular: The side effects of Superdrol in this category can be some of the most concerning of all. The Methyldrostanolone hormone can have a strong,negative impact on lipids by significantly lowering HDL cholesterol(good cholesterol) and increasing LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol).Despite carrying no estrogenic activity, therefore no water retention, Methyltestosterone may also have a negative impact on blood pressure. However, cholesterol issues are far more likely than blood pressure, but both are possible.

Testosterone: The side effects of Superdrol will include natural testosterone suppression in all men who use the steroid, and it will be significant. The use of exogenous testosterone is advised. Those who do not include exogenous testosterone of some form with their Superdrol use will place their body in a low testosterone state. The form of testosterone you choose is inconsequential, all that matters is your body receives the testosterone it needs as this hormone is essential to a healthy a properly functioning body.

Hepatotoxicity: Superdrol, like all C17-aa anabolic steroids, is hepatotoxic and can potentially stress and damage the liver. Use must not be undertaken if the liver isn’t healthy. During use, liver enzyme values will increase in all who use this steroid. However, an increase in liver enzyme values does not equate to damage but is rather an indicator of stress. However, it will lead to damage if possible precautions are not followed.

  • No other C17-aa steroids should be used during Superdrol use.
  • Excess alcohol consumption must be avoided. Heavy alcohol consumption is tremendously stressful to the liver on its own, and with Superdrol use this will lead to severe liver stress and greatly exasperate the probability of liver damage.
  • Over the counter medications should be avoided at all times when possible. Many over the counter medications are hepatotoxic, and in many cases, just as if not more than many anabolic steroids.
  • Total use should not exceed eight weeks and most will find a total time frame of six weeks to be best. No C17-aa steroids including Superdrol should be used for at least 6-8 weeks post Superdrol use, and a longer time frame of no use will be healthier.
  • The use of a liver detoxification supplement is highly advised when using Superdrol. (TUDCA, NAC at least)

Superdrol Administration:

Standard male Superdrol doses will fall in the 10-20 mg per day range for 6-8 weeks. This will equate to 1-2 capsules per day taken with food. Those who enjoy a high level of toleration can consider 30 mg per day their next go around with the steroid, but this is not advised for most. Doses of 30 mg per day or more will greatly stress the liver and caution is strongly advised.

My Experience

After conducting my research which consisted of hours of scouring the internet for articles such as this, combined with asking questions from people who were “in the know”, I decided to prepare for a Superdrol cycle. First I bought my Superdrol (duh), then I bought some TUDCA, NAC, along with some other antioxidants. I wanted to make sure to protect my liver; after all you only get one.

I took 20 mg per day (2 capsules) for just shy of 2 weeks, I was starting to wonder if I got good stuff. I had heard it was super powerful and that I would know when it kicked in. Well, it had better do something soon because I was losing faith in it by the day. Literally, on day 14 I was at the gym and it was like a light switch flipped on. I was super pumped, my strength was through the roof, and I just kept adding to my workout! I think I stayed an extra half hour and could have even gone longer.

That is how every workout seemed to go for the next month. I absolutely loved it! I put on almost 10 lbs which most of was muscle. I was almost out of my current bottle. Do I continue on with another bottle or call it good for now? I decided that I didn’t want to push my luck and ended my cycle.

Now, on to the bad part of Superdrol that I was not prepared for: the suppression. I ran my normal PCT, which consisted of an over-the-counter herbal supplement which normally works for SARMs. Everything seemed to go well for about a week but then I started to experience brain fog; I had trouble concentrating. I even did a YouTube video here that you can definitely tell that I was suppressed. I had troubles forming thoughts and it was a good example of what a guy looks like when he is suppressed. I kept most of the gains that I made from my cycle but will admit that while I was suppressed, I didn’t work out much and didn’t eat that well while recovering.


Overall, I loved Superdrol. I am on trt (testosterone replacement therapy) now and IF I ever use Superdrol again I shouldn’t have much problem if any rebounding from it. I always understand the risks and I prepare myself for the possibility of negative side effects or things of that nature. As always, I am not recommending that anyone use Superdrol. It is classified as a Schedule III controlled substance along with all anabolic steroids.
