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 .
As for bodybuilders, stanozolol has one interesting peculiarity demanded among them. It consists in the profound ability to lower sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) level resulting in efficiency growing of other steroids in stack with it. In particular, it raises the amount of biologically active free testosterone circulating in the blood. For this reason it is advisable always to use stanozolol in stack with testosterone. Another one reason for this is as follows: winstrol may be more prone than other anabolic steroids to increasing tendon brittleness. This happens due to winstrol`s possibility to dry out the joint fluid, which can lead to joint pain and damages. Also both stanozolol forms: tablets and injections have been noted to provoke adverse changes in cholesterol levels. Hence, monitoring of the lipid profile of the body (blood works) during cycle is advisable.
The use of anabolic steroids such as Winstrol may be associated with serious adverse reactions, many of which are dose related. Patients should be placed on the lowest possible effective dose.

Winstrol is known to cause birth defects in a fetus. Do not take this medication if you are pregnant or could become pregnant during treatment. It is not known whether Winstrol is excreted in human milk. Many drugs are excreted in human milk and there is the potential for adverse reactions in nursing infants from anabolic steroids.
