This means that it will be out of your system quite fast.

The half-life of Anavar is as follows:

Adults: Adults: 9.4–10.4 hours

Elderly: 13.3 hours

However, this also means that you need to take Anavar more frequently. This is primarily due to Anavar being taken orally instead of injected intramuscularly like most other steroids.

Anavar should be taken two or three times per day to maintain peak levels in the blood. This usually increases as you see how your body responds to the compound.
