Oxandrolone (better known under the trademark Anavar 50 by Dragon Pharma) is an anabolic steroid, which was first released under the trademark Anavar in 1964. The drug is known due to the fact that it has a high level of anabolic activity (400% of testosterone), at the same time an extremely low level of androgenic activity (20% of testosterone).

Side Effects of Anavar 50
Although oxandrolone is an alpha-17-alkylated steroid, its toxic effect on the liver is negligible. Studies show that Anavar at a dose of 20 mg per day taken for 12 weeks does not affect the level of liver enzymes (indicators of liver destruction). The first signs of damage to the liver is pain in the right hypochondrium, light stools and dark urine.
Since Anavar 50 by Dragon Pharma is a derivative of dihydrotestosterone, it does not aromatize (does not turn into estrogens, which cause side effects such as gynecomastia and fluid accumulation in the body).
Oxandrolone does not have a significant effect on the level of production of own testosterone in moderate doses (the axis of the hypothalamus-pituitary-testes does not inhibit the feedback mechanism). When the dosage of Anavar is high, the body reacts with a decrease in gonadotropin production, assuming that the endogenous testosterone level is too high. Lack of stimulation of Leydig cells leads to testicular atrophy. Oxandrolone used at a dose of 80 mg per day suppresses testosterone levels after 12 weeks of administration by 67%.
Suppression of testosterone production is manifested by a decrease in libido and sluggish erection. To eliminate this side effect of oxandrolone, you can add to the cycle of gonadotropin or conduct combined cycle with androgenic drugs.
Also, such side effects of Anavar as loss of appetite, abdominal pain, nausea, headaches, rise in blood pressure, and some others are sometimes encountered.
In general, side effects of oxandrolone are quite rare, Anavar is one of the safest steroids.
