Lately, anabolic steroid forums have experienced a flood of questions regarding injectable Anadrol 50. As you may or may not be aware, Anadrol is an oral anabolic steroid that comes in a 50mg tablet. There have been reports that a few underground laboratories have successfully developed Anadrol Enanthate, but this is a bit far-fetched. Here’s why.
A Short Lesson in Molecular Chemistry
The first thing that you should understand when it comes to the Anadrol steroid is the fact that it was designed specifically for oral ingestion at the molecular level. Oral steroids, such as Anadrol 50 and Dianabol, pass through the liver instead of entering the bloodstream directly, and that is what makes these products so very potent.
These compounds have a methylation at the 17th position, which allows them to survive the trip through the liver, in turn giving them their potency. Without the methylation, most of the steroid would simply be destroyed as it passes through the liver.
This would mean that its bioavailability would suffer, and you would need to take far more Anadrol to get the same effects. The methylation makes Anadrol easier to take, cheaper, and more effective in the long run. Unfortunately, it poses problems for those trying to make injectable Anadrol a reality.
What Is Enanthate, Anyway?
The term “enanthate” describes a fatty acid chain, or ester, that delays the release of an injectable compound into the bloodstream. For example, consider testosterone enanthate. This is synthetic testosterone that has been modified in such a way that it releases more slowly into the bloodstream over time.
Certain enzymes must work to remove the ester from the molecule in order for the body to effectively “absorb” the testosterone. This simple ester addition means that users can enjoy all of the benefits of a steady testosterone supply without having to inject it every day.
The claim is that a group of “underground” chemists have created a form of Anadrol with an attached enanthate ester. Were this true, it would mean a brand-new form of a popular anabolic steroid for those who prefer the action of injectable compounds.
In many cases, athletes prefer injectable steroids because they offer longer-lasting and more potent benefits than their oral counterparts, and in many cases, they do this without fear of liver damage. Most injectable steroids are not methylated or alkylated, which means they are not hepatotoxic.
Methyl Groups and Esters
In understanding the logic behind a product coined “Anadrol 50 Enanthate”, you must also consider the fact that adding a methyl group (such as that found in Anadrol at the 17th position) and an ester (such as the “enanthate” portion of testosterone enanthate) is very, very difficult.
What’s more, all commercially-available forms of Anadrol, including the powder, contain these methyl groups. When the methyl group is present, attaching an ester, which is necessary for injectable serums, becomes nearly impossible and far out of reach for underground laboratories.
That’s not to say it is impossible to add an ester to an Anadrol molecule, though. Someone with the right technology and know-how could potentially do it, though it is highly unlikely. The technology required to pull off such a feat would cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, and most people outside of well-known pharmaceutical companies simply do not have access to those tools and the controlled environment.
Even Success Is a Failure
Finally, there is one more thing to consider regarding the development of Anadrol 50 Enanthate for injection. Even if an underground laboratory could successfully attach an ester to a methylated compound like Anadrol, the body would not know what to do with it.
The methyl group, designed to block enzymes to keep it alive during its trip through the liver, would also block the enzymes necessary for shearing off the ester. Theoretically, then, the user could inject 100mg of Anadrol and there would be no active compound in the body whatsoever.
With this information in mind, the reasons why Anadrol enanthate doesn’t already exist are plain to see. Pharmaceutical laboratories have developed hundreds of different anabolic steroids derived from testosterone and DHT, and when it comes to steroids like trenbolone and testosterone, they’ve even added different esters.
If there were any way to create a legitimate version of injectable Anadrol 50 that would provide a benefit, it would have already been done – and in a professional setting, as well.
Alternatives to Injectable Anadrol 50
If you had your heart set on trying injectable Anadrol only to find that such a thing does not truly exist – and wouldn’t work even if it did – there are other options. Oral Anadrol is quite potent. In fact, it’s one of the most potent bulking agents available to men today, even in pill form
Some men prefer to stay away from it due to its hepatotoxicity, but unless you have existing liver problems or you’re taking a necessary medication that could lead to liver damage, this shouldn’t be a concern. You can add milk thistle to your anadrol stack for extra protection, and as always, you should remember to avoid alcohol and drugs like acetaminophen, which can exacerbate potential liver damage.
If you’re looking for an injectable alternative, it should be noted that the most potent bulking steroids come in oral form. It is difficult (if not impossible) to duplicate the effects of Anadrol or Dianabol, which are the two kings of bulking, in an injectable form.
If you prefer injections, consider using the pill form of Anadrol 50 at the front-end of a cycle with Trenbolone or even Deca Durabolin for four weeks. This will help you jumpstart your gains, allowing you to swap off to the injectable steroid at the fourth week. The chart below shows this and other alternatives for you to get your gains with injectable steroids.

*Though Equipoise rarely makes its way into bulking cycles, it makes sense in this instance. It has been shown to drastically increase appetite, which is necessary when using Anadrol.
In all of these examples, remember that Dianabol and Anadrol should be used at the start of your cycle for at least four but no more than six weeks. This gives the injectable steroid time to build up to full effect in your body. All of these cycles need to contain testosterone at a dose of somewhere between 300mg and 600mg a week, and you should also use an aromatase inhibitor to prevent estrogenic side effects. Arimidex at 0.5mg every other day should suffice.
Of course, this is not to say that you cannot find injectable forms of Anadrol 50 from a couple of different labs on the internet. Some of them certainly offer it, and many users claim that it works wonders. However, with enanthate being a popular ester among athletes due to its long half-life, it should be noted that Anadrol Enanthate is a near impossibility among underground steroid labs.
