Methenolone acetate (Brand name: Primobolan) is a synthetic, orally
active anabolic-androgenic steroid and dihydrotestosterone (DHT)
derivative. It can be used for the treatment of bone marrow disease
and anemia. Methenolone acetate is known for its higher therapeutic
efficiency and lower hepatic toxicity compared with its 17 alpha-
alkylated analogs. However, it is frequently abused in human sports
because of its capability of increasing muscle strength as well as
promoting performance and aggressiveness. It is capable of enhancing
performance in racehorses.
Methenolone acetate is an anabolic steroid.
This is a controlled substance.
