    Classification of Methasterone (Superdrol) as Schedule III Anabolic Steroid under CSA


    I was researching the SD alpha/beta structural differences, specifically why the beta isomer would be completely inactive and came across these...





    Proposed Rules - 2011 - Classification of Two Steroids, Prostanozol and Methasterone, as Schedule III Anabolic Steroids Under the Controlled Substances Act

    Conclusion
    Therefore, based on the above, DEA concludes that prostanozol and methasterone meet the CSA definition of "anabolic steroid" because each substance is: (A) Chemically related to testosterone; (B) pharmacologically related to testosterone; (C) not an estrogen, progestin, or a corticosteroid; and (D) not DHEA (21 U.S.C. 802(41)). All anabolic steroids are classified as Schedule III controlled substances (21 U.S.C. 812). Once a substance is determined to be an anabolic steroid, DEA has no discretion regarding the scheduling of these substances.
    http://www.reginfo.gov/public/do/eAg...&RIN=1117-AB31

    This rule classifies the following two steroids as "anabolic steroids" under the Controlled Substances Act (CSA): prostanozol and methasterone. The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) believes that this action is necessary to prevent the abuse and trafficking of these steroids. If the regulations are amended, these steroids will be listed as schedule III controlled substances subject to the regulatory control provisions of the CSA.

    I posted about this not that long ago

    http://anabolicminds.com/forum/showthread.php?t=184260

    The FDA was forcing one company to recall and prosecuted another company for selling it. They called it an unapproved drug at the time but it was only a matter of time before it was official but in all reality it was never really legal to begin with.

    yea it was only a matter of time. It's gonna go the way of phera, x tren, etc.. They probably will have it go into effect at the beginning of the new year. Don't quote me on that bc i'm just guessing however there will surely be more news of it to come.

    When methasterone get's banned, it is the nomenclature that get's banned.

    5a-androstane = eiotoallocholane = alpha isomer (true Superdrol)

    5b-androstane = etiocholane = beta isomer (inactive Superdrol)

    What's funny is almost all superdrol clones which are out today are listed as the 5b isomer... which is completely inactive and unable to bind to the androgen receptors. Yet most clones usually produce gains indicating it is the 5a isomer in the bottles and a mislabel on the back. The 5b would also be hard to synthesize and there would never be a reason to make it so whether it even exists is questionable. Mdrol as an example was listed as the 5b isomer and when the consumers were complaining about 5b being weaker than 5a CEL showed RTP labs indicating it to be the true 5a isomer. The listing on the back as 5b was noted as a mislabel.

    I'm assuming the nomenclature that will be banned is the 5a isomer and companies knew this--maybe why so many clones had the mislabel of the 5b isomer when in reality it probably doesn't even exist. Whether it will provide some sort of protection is questionable as Superdrol was already in the grey area and how the labelling and 5a/5b isomers will play into all of this in regards to the ban is anybody's guess... I'm also wondering if Superdrol can continue to be sold through some loophole afterwards but I doubt it at this point...

    There is no gray area as it was never really legal. Also it doesnt matter if something is listed as a controlled substance or not in the eyes of the FDA. As you can see iforce was prosecuted over superdrol and found guilty before superdrol was even listed as a controlled substance. Remember superdrol is an active actual steroid.. Far from DSHEA compliant and thus a drug and not dietary supplement so it is classified as a "unapproved new drug" and illegal according to the food, drug and cosmetic act. Companies have just been flying under the radar all these years but the FDA is starting to wise up more recently.

    DEA Wants to Classify Superdrol and Prostanozol as Schedule III Anabolic Steroids
    By Millard Baker ~ source

    The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) wants to add Superdrol (methasteron) and Prostanozol to the Controlled Substances list. They have argued that these steroid compounds meet the criteria for Schedule III Anabolic Steroids as defined by the Anabolic Steroids Control Act of 2004. The proposed rule was published in the Federal Register on November 23, 2011.

    The popular Superdrol and Prostanozol have been sold as “dietary supplements” for several years. They have been often marketed as “prohormones” or “pro-steroid” supplements.

    Superdrol and Prostanozol are not currently legally defined as an anabolic steroids under the Controlled Substances Act. However, this never necessarily made it legal for sports nutrition companies to market and distribute these steroids as dietary supplements.

    These particular steroidal compounds did not meet the definition of a dietary supplement under the Dietary Health and Supplement Education Act.

    The DEA’s proposed new rule comes just after Anabolic Resources, Inc., doing business as Anabolic Xtreme, pleaded guilty to a felony charge involving Superdrol. The company admitted that Superdrol was fraudulently marketed as a dietary supplement when it was a synthetic steroid. The company was sentenced to paying a $500,000 fine.

    Anabolic Resources was only one of the most recent company pursued by the federal government for illegally selling prohormone and steroidal ingredients as dietary supplements.

    Numerous other supplement companies, such as Advanced Muscle Science”, “Culver Concepts”, “Bradley Asgard”, “Bjorklund”, “Axis Labs”, “IForce Nutrition” and “American Cellular Labs”, have also pleaded guilty to illegally selling steroid compounds that were really “unapproved new drugs” or “misbranded drugs”.

    The DEA’s proposed rule to legally reclassify Superdrol and Prostanozol as “anabolic steroids” is yet another indicator that the federal government is serious about removing steroid compounds from the supplement marketplace.

    IMO the DEA is shafting us, I have two clones left good thing. Might need to buy a few more to stock up on, to consider SD a type III is just redicolous. Interesting point chocolatemilk, on the nomenclature. Both of my clones are 5B, and to consider them not a true SD conversion is wrong. I have Methastadrol and Mdrol both 5B, but the companies must be misprinting on purpose to protect this great chemical. Great thread chocalatemilk!

    Wait... so $16 for 450mg sd would be like $32 for a bottle of mdrol... still not bad, but there's still cheaper. Anyone try methyl depot by gat? Lol times limited, need answers before sd is $70 like mdrol atm

    Dynamic Formula's M-Stane is 19.95 consistantly. Solid SD as i've run it before.

    I have 4 bottles of LGI SD-10 and i feel like the M-Stane was more powerfull. So when i buy more i'll be picking up M-Stane for sure.

    Definately true, I have had great results with Methastadrol. Although, some people have mixed reviews I have ran two bottles with complete success. 26$ for 90 pills is reasonable too.

    methyldepot by gat sucks and is bunk.

    forged sd extreme is gtg.

    i went with ironmag labs because i prefered the 5mg tabs. it was a tough decision, but i've ran heavy dosages of sd enough.

    and na, dont drop the orals, just add in test.

    The FDA doesn't go by labels it seems. They would probably have the product tested to verify what it contains and if said ingredient is different from the label they could just as easily accuse them of mislabelling. The fact that we see designers as a loophole, is what is causing all this company hunting that the FDA is starting to pursue again. There was never a loophole

    And I don't see evidence for the complete anabolic/androgenic inactivity of the 5b-isomer of superdrol. I would agree it is highly inactive, but maybe not entirely. I realize you were just regurgitating what has been said over and over. Reps for the original post choc.

Far from DSHEA compliant and thus a drug and not dietary supplement so it is classified as a "unapproved new drug" and illegal according to the food, drug and cosmetic act. Companies have just been flying under the radar all these years but the FDA is starting to wise up more recently.
    Exactly!!!!! This certainly doesnt just target SD , it can be said for all PHs. The FDA is letting the invid. state offices investigate and they have even gone after very small "retailers" -guys that sold 50 bottles over the internet

    And I don't see evidence for the complete anabolic/androgenic inactivity of the 5b-isomer of superdrol. I would agree it is highly inactive, but maybe not entirely. I realize you were just regurgitating what has been said over and over. Reps for the original post choc.
    The mislabeling is what will doom many companies in the future. These products are either unapproved drugs or mislabeled....either way u are f8cked
