Despite the fact that Winstrol has some relatively harsh side effects, men who choose to use it alone should always stack it with testosterone at the very least. What’s more, keeping the cycle length short – six weeks at most – is always a good idea, particularly when it comes to preventing liver damage. One great way to make the most of your cycle is to use the Winstrol for six weeks, take a six-week break, and then use another short cycle that combines Winstrol with another popular anabolic steroid like Deca Durabolin. This helps reduce the risk of joint pain and other harsh side effects while still offering profound gains.
Of concern to any user of Winstrol during a cycle should be its intoxicating effect on the liver . The drug is a 17aa structured steroid , meaning it has been structured in a way which allows it to be orally bio-available, yet this has the negative effect of making Winstrol potentially harmful to the liver. It is therefore paramount the duration of a Winstrol cycle is limited, the dose of the drug is not excessive, the user does not stack it with other hepatotoxic compounds, does not drink alcohol whilst on cycle, and does not use Winstrol if they have an underlying medical condition which effects the livers health. There are supplements available which also help protect the liver (Milk Thistle, Liv-52 etc), and these would be advisable during any Winstrol cycle .
