This drug was first produced in 1964 by a company called Searle. It was designed to be a safe and mind anabolic steroid and in low doses was well tolerated by women and children. Oxandrolone is a Class I anabolic, mildly androgenic steroid, which makes it safe to use in many cases. This drug has been used for anything from, burn victims to treatment of osteoporosis as it provides calcium to the body which will aid in bone regeneration. However in 1989 this drug was discontinued by Searle Laboratories partly due to the illegal use among bodybuilders. Around 6 years later Bio-Technology General Corp negotiated a deal with Searle where they would continue to manufacture the drug Anavar and supply it to BTG. This is when a press release went out stating its effects on involuntary weight loss and focused itself on HIV/AID’s wasting indications which were approved by the FDA where they were able to dictate the price by it being granted Orphan Drug status by the Food and Drug Administration.
Steroids can make pimples pop up and hair fall out. They can make guys grow breasts and girls grow beards. Steroids can cause livers to grow tumors and hearts to clog up. They can even send users on violent, angry rampages. In other words, steroids throw a body way out of whack. Steroids do make users bulk up, but the health risks are high. It's true, on steroids biceps bulge; abs ripple; and quads balloon. But that's just on the outside. Steroid users may be very pleased when they flex in the mirror, but they may create problems on the inside. These problems may hurt them the rest of their lives. As a matter of fact steroid use can shorten their lives.
Although Tbol had expressed an incredible record of valid application and safety, in 1994 Jenapharm halted production. This was a time in the early 1990s when the majority of anabolic steroids had been discontinued and pulled from markets all across the world due to the increasing anti-steroid stigma at the time. The increasing amounts of negative attention drawn to the use of anabolic steroids in sports in the early 1990s did not help Turinabol’s case, and its fate at the time was similar to many other anabolic steroids at the time as well. Jenapharm was eventually bought by Schering AG in 1996, but did not resume the manufacture of Turinabol . The halted production in the early 1990s coincided with the details concerning East Germany’s state sponsored doping program coming to light, and its abrupt production halt alongside the news in regards to the doping program is likely what contributed to the popular attitude among athletes and bodybuilders that Turinabol was a very mysterious, special, and prized anabolic steroid to obtain.
