Anavar is the brand name of the chemical Oxandrolone – steroid for oral administration, production of which began in 1964. Despite the fact that it was originally developed as a stimulant for the growth of children as well as for the treatment of many other diseases, Anavar quickly gained popularity among athletes.

Due to the negative reputation that steroids found in the 80s, doctors began to look with caution on the use of oxandrolone in the treatment of certain diseases. After that, the production of the substance was not profitable for the pharmaceutical company «Searl», and Anavar was discontinued. But it did not last long – not so long ago, «BTG» bought the rights to manufacture this drug to treat wasting syndrome associated with HIV. With this Anavar has become more available in the market.
