Stanozolol review





Stanozolol is the generic name for an anabolic steroid which is a derivative of testosterone. It also goes under the brand name of Winstrol. It is used to treat a condition called angioedema, which is a hereditary condition somewhat like hives, but going deeper into the skin and producing more painful and longer lasting symptoms.

The use of any anabolic steroid is very risky and may be associated with severe side effects. Your doctor should always prescribe you the lowest possible dose, and you should always take it exactly as directed. In most cases, your dosage will start at a certain level, then be tapered off gradually over time, until you are taking a minimal dosage, perhaps even every other day instead of every day.

Since hereditary angioedema is rare in childhood, and since the risks of anabolic steroids are higher for children than for adults, it is not recommended that children be given stanozolol. Tests have shown that continued use of stanozolol in children can inhibit growth and result in a shorter stature as adults.

Side effects of any steroid drugs can be uncomfortable, even severe. They may include jaundice or changes in liver function. In boys, there is the possibility of enlargement of the penis and more frequent erections; in men, genital side effects may include reduced functioning of the testicles, impotence, shrinking of the testicles, low sperm count, epididymitis (an infection of the epididymus, a small gland near the testes), gynecomastia (the development of breasts) and bladder irritability. In women, side effects may include enlargement of the clitoris, deepening of the voice and irregular periods. Both sexes might experience either increased or decreased libido, nausea and vomiting, insomnia, depression, diarrhea, excessive hair growth or hair loss, and acne. In part because of these potential side effects, stanozolol is considered to be a controlled substance and is very carefully regulated.

Some side effects are even more serious than the ones mentioned above. Some patients develop a condition known as peliosis hepatic, a condition in which liver tissue is replaced with blood-filled cysts. These cysts are difficult to detect until the patient is very ill, and can be life-threatening. Liver cell tumors are also reported in users of stanozolol. Most of these are benign, but some become fatal. Simply withdrawing the drug usually results in the symptoms clearing up immediately.

Stanozolol can interact with some anticoagulants, both those which occur naturally and those which are taken as medications. It causes an increased sensitivity to anticoagulants, making them more effective, and their required dosages less. Anticoagulants may have to be decreased while the patient is taking stanozolol or any other anabolic steroid.

There are several conditions which preclude the use of stanozolol. Men with breast cancer should not use it, nor should men with prostate cancer. Women with breast cancer should not use it, either, nor should pregnant women, as an anabolic steroid can cause significant harm to a fetus. People with nephrosis, a disorder of the kidneys, or nephritis, an inflammation of the kidneys, should avoid anabolic steroids as well.
