There is limited information available on the pharmacokinetics of oxymetholone.  It appears to be well-absorbed with oral administration .  Oxymetholone has very low affinity for human serum sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG), less than 5% of that of testosterone and less than 1% of that of DHT.  The drug is metabolized in the liver by oxidation at the C2 position, reduction at the C3 position, hydroxylation at the C17 position, and conjugation .   The C2 hydroxymethylene group of oxymetholone can be cleaved to form mestanolone (17α-methyl-DHT), which may contribute to the effects of oxymetholone.  The elimination half-life of oxymetholone is unknown.  Oxymetholone and its metabolites are eliminated in the urine .  
Although the debate rages on (and probably always will) there is a controversial solution for getting the best of both worlds, and that involves using both compounds together in a cycle. Although both of these oral compounds are liver toxic, you can use them safely at moderate doses during short cycles and alongside a liver protectant supplement. The most common Anadrol Dianabol stack involves a 4-6 week cycle during which you take 25mg of Dianabol and 50mg of Anadrol per day. The synergistic effects are quite noticeable at these doses. In short, using the two together counteracts many of the side effects due to the low doses of each, including appetite loss, aches and pains, and even fatigue.
