Methyltestosterone on Steroids

Methyltestosterone is a synthetic anabolic steroid used widely in clinical medicine. It is essentially a derivative of testosterone but more stable. It is chiefly used to treat individuals who have either a deficiency or lack of testosterone in the body. Testosterone is essential for the development of sexual characteristics and growth of the body. In the last decade, the drug has also been used to treat advanced breast cancer in females.
Methyltestosterone is one of the oldest available oral steroids. It is produced by various manufacturers and sold in a number of countries including the U.S. It is an androgenic drug with moderate anabolic effects. In medicine, methyltestosterone is administered on a daily basis for a few months. It has been shown to promote the development of secondary sexual characteristics and also aids in the growth of the body. Methyltestosterone Pills


Bodybuilding Picture Methyltestosterone has been widely used by athletes and bodybuilders. The steroid is taken principally to enhance the body and stimulate the psyche. Most bodybuilders who take this drug claim that it causes spontaneous bursts in energy associated with increased aggression. This feature of the drug is used primarily by weight lifters and professional wrestlers. Many athletes also claim that the drug improves their ability to perform exercise at intense levels.

While the drug can be taken orally, some athletes crush the tablets and place the drug underneath the tongue for faster absorption. Within minutes after placing the drug underneath the tongue, the drug can be found in the blood circulation. However, methyltestosterone rarely produces any immediate effects and the mental changes claimed are believed to be a placebo effect.


Methyltestosterone is converted into estrogen in the fatty tissues and will induce gynecomastia and fluid retention. Thus, some bodybuilders take Arimidex or Tamoxifen to counter these side effects. The drug is usually taken for a few weeks and then recycled with Arimidex during the washout phase.


Methyltestosterone is not a very potent anabolic agent and it is also often combined with thyroxin or growth hormone. The weight gain seen with methyltestosterone is gradual and not very pronounced. Most bodybuilders prefer this drug because it does tend to increase aggression and improves performance for short duration.


Side Effects


When methyltestosterone is taken at low doses, the side effects are rare. However, long term use is known to be associated with a varied number of side effects- all of which are reversible when the drug is stopped. For the female who decides to take methyltestosterone, there are virilizing side effects which are not always reversible when the drug is stopped.  Like all anabolic steroids, methyltestosterone also has a number of side effects which includes:

  • nausea, vomiting
  • abdominal cramps, diarrhea
  • swelling
  • increased /decreased libido
  • headaches
  • acne, oily skin
  • mental change including anger, depression, insomnia
  • diaphoresis
  • loss of hair
  • gynecomastia
Side Effects of Methyltestosterone
When taken by females, the drug definitely can cause virilizing effects like
  • deepening of voice
  • hoarseness
  • excess hair growth
  • enlarged clitoris
  • irregular menstrual cycles



Methyltestosterone can be taken by mouth and is rapidly absorbed in the blood stream.


It has a relatively short half life. While it is only recommended for once a day dosing in medical patients, some bodybuilders prefer to take it twice a day.  This increased dose is also associated with more side effects.


Methyltestosterone is typically taken once a day for 3 weeks and then stopped to allow the hypothalamus and testes to recover. Short duration treatments are recommended to avoid the side effects.


Over dose


Overdose with methyltestosterone can occur but unlikely to cause any harm. The drug does not have any acute complications, except for making you feel like crap. Nevertheless, when an overdose has occurred, a visit to the ER department is recommended.




There are many fake and counterfeit anabolic steroids on the market and frequently they are contaminated with methyltestosterone. Methyltestosterone is widely available and can be easily mixed with other steroids. The majority of bodybuilders who buy anabolic steroids from cyberspace are infact buying products which have been contaminated with methyltestosterone. And there is no way to know unless the steroid is analyzed in a chemistry laboratory.




Methyltestosterone is classified as a schedule 3 drug under the Controlled Substance Act. It is only available with a physician‘s prescription in the USA. Intention of selling or distribution the drug for any other condition is considered unlawful.




Photobucket Any individual who consumes methyltestosterone must be followed up by a health care professional. The anabolic steroid can cause an increase in the liver enzymes. There are rare reports of liver masses developing in individuals who take anabolic steroids for a long time.




All anabolic steroids including methyltestosterone are banned from use in sports. The drug is actively screened for in the urine. The latest measurement techniques can identify methyltestosterone and its metabolites for up to a week in the urine after the last dose.




The cost of the methyltestosterone is quite variable. On average for 100 tablets (25 mg), the cost can vary from $50-$100.
