A clinical assessment of an anabolic agent —Oxymethalone (Anapolon)

The present observations in a small series of cases indicate that oxymethalone is an effective anabolic agent at a dose of 10 mg. daily. Considerable weight gain was seen in a high proportion of the patients together with an improvement in the appetite and sense of well-being. The only side-effect encountered was nausea which was experienced by two patients of the series. These results would tend to support the work of other investigators who have studied the anabolic activity of oxymethalone.
