Anavar is a very well known steroid available in the market that is used by both men as well as women for their performance improvement. The generic name of Anavar is Oxandrolone however it has been observed that body builders often get different results by using the brand name of Anavar and while preferring its generic alternate. Therefore, body builders should know the difference between these two versions and learn to use them properly to obtain desired results.
Oxandrolone is the generic name of the trade name Anavar and their ingredients are also same. However, since they are produced by different manufacturers, the effect that you get may be different too.
What is Anavar/Oxandrolone
This is an anabolic androgenic steroid and quite popular among body builders and athletes of both sexes. Oxandrolone is manufactured in different countries under other brand names too however their generic name remains the same.

The chemical formula of Anavar/oxandrolone is C19H30O3. Under whatever name it is sold, it remains a synthetically created hormone, which has anabolic-androgenic properties. There is not much confusion when they are used for any medical reasons. However, when they are used for non-medical reasons then there are certain benefits and also associated with few side effects.
Application of Anavar/Oxandrolone
Like many other steroids anavar is also a prescribed drug, which is listed in schedule III category and available for purchase on production of prescription only.
However, when body builders and athletes use this drug for their performance improvement then they will use higher dosage. The dosage recommendation for generic version and the branded version may differ due to chances of various side effects. If you refer to body-builder’s website then you will find the dosage prescribed for generic version and the branded version is different.
