About METADEC 50MG INJECTION

METADEC 50MG INJECTION belongs to the group of medications called ‘anabolic steroids’ used to treat osteoporosis in post-menopausal women. Osteoporosis is a medical condition in which bone becomes thin or weak. When a woman reaches menopause stage, ovaries stop making estrogen, a female hormone responsible for bone health. Due to the deficiency of estrogen, inadequate bone formation occurs, resulting in the weakening of bones. The earlier a woman reaches to her menopause, the more the chances of osteoporosis. This condition can result in brittle or broken bones if prompt treatment is not given.

METADEC 50MG INJECTION contains ‘Nandrolone’ which is a steroid used to prevent bone loss. It works by inhibiting bone resorption (breaking down of bone tissue) and promote bone formation. It can effectively delay bone loss.

METADEC 50MG INJECTION is available in the form of injection. You should take this medicine as prescribed by your doctor. The common side-effects of METADEC 50MG INJECTION are fluid retention in the tissues (swelling of the ankles or feet or increased blood pressure), masculinization (an increase in male characteristics in women) such as a change in voice, hoarseness, increase in body or facial hair or acne, increased libido (sexual desire), nausea and itching. It may also alter blood tests such as increased haemoglobin levels, changes in blood lipids (fats) and liver function tests. Inform your doctor if any of these side-effects persist or worsen.

Do not take METADEC 50MG INJECTION if you are allergic to ‘Nandrolone’ or any ingredients such as Arachis oil or peanut oil and benzyl alcohol present in it. It should not be given in conditions such as breast cancer in women with hypercalcemia (high calcium levels in the body), diagnosed or suspected breast cancer in men, kidney diseases and diagnosed or suspected prostate cancer. It should not be used in pregnant or breastfeeding women.
