While an anabolic steroid, the active hormone Methyldrostanolone had never been placed on the controlled substance list in the U.S. and in 2005 it would hit the shelves of most major supplement companies and enjoyed massive success. However, in 2006 due to tremendous FDA pressure Superdrol would be discontinued. While the Superdrol brand was short lived, over the counter and black market Methyldrostanolone would continue to appear around the world until mid-2012. In 2012 Methyldrostanolone would be placed on the U.S. controlled substance list and classified as a Schedule III controlled substance along with all anabolic steroids.
Methyldrostanolone or Superdrol, while it did not appear on the market until 2005 is not a new anabolic steroid. Syntex first created the Methyldrostanolone hormone in 1959 at the same time as Drostanolone (Masteron) and Oxymetholone (Anadrol). However, the Methyldrostanolone hormone never received a pharmaceutical push like the other two hormones. The exception would be its inclusion in Dimethazine; a compound that metabolically dissolved and converted to Methyldrostanolone post-administration. As we dive into the Superdrol compound, as you may have already guessed we will find it is very similar to Drostanolone or the popular anabolic steroid Masteron.
