This steroid is used for both
strength and weight gains but it does not come without a price (both in
actual cost and side effects). Most users of this steroid report getting
gyno about 50% of the time. This baby is very hard on the body and there
is major water weight gain. The gains that you will get on
Anadrol will go away after you get off of it. This is pretty hard to
take when you take into account how much it costs and the long term side
Anadrol Side Effects
Anadrol has been associated with liver toxicity. Peliosis hepatis, a condition in which liver and sometimes splenic tissue is replaced with blood-filled cysts, has been reported in patients receiving androgenic anabolic steroid therapy. These cysts are sometimes present with minimal hepatic dysfunction, but at other times they have been associated with liver failure. They are often not recognized until life-threatening liver failure or intra-abdominal hemorrhage develops. Withdrawal of drug usually results in complete disappearance of lesions. Liver cell tumors are also reported. Most often these tumors are benign and androgen-dependent, but fatal malignant tumors have been reported. Withdrawal of drug often results in regression or cessation of progression of the tumor. However, hepatic tumors associated with androgens or anabolic steroids are much more vascular than other hepatic tumors and may be silent until life-threatening intra-abdominal hemorrhage develops.
May affect the levels of certain substances, called lipids, which have been associated with an increased risk of heart and artery disease. Blood lipid changes that are known to be associated with increased risk of atherosclerosis are seen in patients treated with androgens and anabolic steroids. These changes include decreased high-density lipoprotein and sometimes increased low-density lipoprotein. The changes may be very marked and could have a serious impact on the risk of atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease. Edema may be a serious complication in patients with pre-existing cardiac, renal, or hepatic disease.
Because Anadrol is chemically similar to the main male hormone (testosterone), women taking Anadrol are at risk for developing such masculine characteristics as facial hair, hair loss, or a deeper voice.
