Oxymetholone (also known as anapolon or anadrol) is a very drastic synthetic steroid, 17-alpha-alkylated modification of dihydrotestosterone. It was developed for the treatment of osteoporosis and anaemia, as well as to stimulate muscle gain in malnourished and debilitated patients. Oxymetholone has been approved by the American Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in humans. Later there where created non-steroidal drugs that effectively could treat anaemia and osteoporosis; because of this anapolon lost his popularity and by 1993 Syntex decided to cease the production of the drug, as well as other manufacturers did.
It is unclear how iron supplements might affect the body's absorption of mycophenolate mofetil. It has been suggested that iron might decrease how much mycophenolate mofetil (CellCept) the body absorbs. Therefore, taking iron along with mycophenolate mofetil (CellCept) might decrease the effectiveness of mycophenolate mofetil (CellCept). However, not all research has found that iron affects the body's absorption of mycophenolate. Therefore, it is not clear if this potential interaction is a serious concern. Until more is known, you should take iron at least four to six hours before, or two hours after taking mycophenolate mofetil (CellCept).
