What is Ostarine?
Ostarine is one of the most popular types of SARMs, or Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators. These experimental drugs were developed by pharmaceutical companies to help people with cancer and other diseases avoid muscle loss and osteoporosis. Ostarine is also commonly used by bodybuilders at high doses.
How Does Ostarine Work?
Ostarine was developed by GTx Inc. and Merck & Co. in 2009, intended for use in cancer patients. Bodybuilders use Ostarine as an alternative to steroids because it specifically targets cells in bones and muscles, which causes fewer side effects in other areas of the body compared to traditional steroids and testosterone injections.
What is the Problem?
Bodybuilders often take Ostarine in extremely high doses to build muscle. Unfortunately, Ostarine and other SARMs are associated with severe side effects and unknown long-term risks.
FDA Safety Warning
In October 2017, the FDA warned bodybuilders about the potential risks of SARMs:
SARMs have not been approved by the FDA and are associated with serious safety concerns, including potential to increase the risk of heart attack or stroke and life threatening reactions like liver damage.”
What Else is Ostarine Called?
There are many other names for Ostarine, such as:
- GTx 024
- MK 2866
Ostarine is sometimes illegally advertised as a “dietary supplement,” when it is actually a dangerous pharmaceutical drug. It is also sometimes advertised as an experimental chemical that is not for human consumption, but the ads show people using the drugs.
If you were diagnosed with a severe side effect of Ostarine or another bodybuilding SARM, our lawyers may be able to help you file a lawsuit against the manufacturer. You could be eligible for compensation for your pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost income, and more.
