Anadrol is an oral steroid that was first developed in the 1960s to treat muscle wasting diseases and anemia. This potent steroid is well known for how quickly it can increase size and strength. Estrogen levels can climb considerably with the use of anadrol, making water retention and gyno major problems. Since much of the weight gained while taking anadrol is in fact water retention, much of it can expected to be lost once use is discontinued. Anadrol use is much more common than the other drugs discussed here. As with cheque drops and halotestin, anadrol is a 17aa oral steroid. Like all steroids in this category, anadrol is liver toxic. Liver enzymes increase dramatically with the use of anadrol. This steroid may not be as liver toxic as cheque drops or halotestin, but its ability to cause damage is a concern. Liver enzymes appear to return to normal when it is used for only 4-6 weeks and use is stopped. When anadrol is used at doses above 100mg a day or for extended periods of time, the potential for permanent liver damage does exist. The dangers of this steroid increase when it is combined with other oral steroids and/or alcohol.
Effects of steroid withdrawal are known to emulate and kick start many other medical complications as well. Weakness, loss of appetite, fatigue, nausea, weight loss, vomiting, diarrhea (further resulting in liquid and electrolyte complications), as well as abdominal pain are some of the most common effects that steroid withdrawal is often associated with. Constant decrease in blood pressure which simultaneously causes a person to faint or causes fits and dizziness are other complications the steroid use can cause.
Blood sugar levels are known to have dropped in many people who consume steroids. In women, menstrual changes have been reported widely. Muscle and joint pains, fever, changes in mentality, as well as elevation in calcium levels have been reported in some cases. Gastrointestinal contractions decrease dramatically which may ultimately lead to the swelling of the intestine .
It should be noted that in theory if one was to consistently suppress your natural estrogen levels for a long period of time, this would negatively impact your health, including your cholesterol. Due to the ability of Letrozole- to inhibit estrogen so much, this should definitely be a concern to most users. However the research that has focused on the relationship between use of letrozole and cholesterol levels is rather inconsistent in it's findings. Many studies have concluded that the compound is detrimental to both a user's HDL and LDL cholesterol levels, while other research has found no link. Obviously individuals are best served to monitor their cholesterol while using any compound via blood tests however barring that, letrozole should simply not be run for extended periods of time if at all possible. Doing so could cause serious medical complications.
Along with the issues related to blood lipids is the fact that many users complain that their libido is dramatically reduced when using the compound. This is related to the fact that estrogen is partly responsible for the regulation of an individual's sex drive. Since Letrozole- is so potent it can often drive estrogen levels too low and this inhibits a user's libido. To avoid this users can lower dosages, but some anecdotally report that even extremely low doses of the drug can cause problems. If this is the case a less potent compound such as exemestane or anastrozole may be a more appropriate option.
