Boldione, also known as androstadienedione, is a synthetic anabolic steroid. It is a prohormone, meaning it is a precursor to testosterone. It is used to increase muscle mass and strength, as well as to improve athletic performance.

Boldione is illegal in the United States and is classified as a Schedule III controlled substance. It is also banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency.

The toxic effects of boldione include liver damage, increased risk of heart attack and stroke, increased risk of prostate cancer, and masculinization in women. It can also cause aggression, depression, and other mental health issues.
