Winstrol Depot is not without it’s side effects, in addition to it’s well known liver toxicity, it also has issues with increased tendon brittleness and decreased hormone production, along with some less frequent issues.
Liver Toxicity of Winstrol Depot is no joke, because it’s 17-alpha alkylated like oral anabolic steroids, it has a much higher liver toxicity than most other injectable steroids. it’s also to be noted that it’s liver toxicity (even when injected) is much higher than almost all other alkylated steroids.
It’s tendency to increase bone and tendon brittleness is a very important problem to look out for, i have known a number of bodybuilders that have suffered serious injuries which they attribute to their use of winstrol. Joint pain is also a potential side effect.
some of the warning signs to look for with using it are:
Frequent or persistent erections, or breast tenderness/enlargement (yes even in males)
or in females: voice changes, hair loss,k facial hair growth, clitoral enlargement and menstrual irregularities
in both sexes, look for swelling of the arms or legs (specifically the ankles)
or allergic symptoms
The side effects to be looked for which signify less dangerous side effects (but still you should seek a doctor if you experience any of them)
new or worse acne
changes in sexual desire
or frequent or strong headaches
Likely the best way to avoid sexual dysfunction while using this stuff would be to supplement it with testosterone. this would minimize the negative effects from the natural testosterone production shut down.
Because stanozolol does not aromatize (convert to estrogen) it does not convert to dihydrotestosterone. the lack of aromatization should decrease the likelihood for sexual side effects as well.
Seriously, this cannot be stressed enough, if you experience abdominal pain, light colored poop, dark urine, fatigue, nausea, vomiting or jaundice. Contact a doctor immediately. those are the signs of liver failure, you can die if you don’t.
