The side effects of Durabolin are few. Water retention, high
blood pressure, an el-evated estrogen level, and virilization
symptoms occur less often with Durabolin than with
Deca-Durabolin. Female athletes therefore take Durabolin in
weekly intervals since, due to its short duration of effect, no
undesirable concentration of androgen takes place. They achieve
good results with 50 mg Durabolin/week, 50 mg Testosterone
Propionate every 8 -10 days, and 8-10 mg Winstrol/day, or 10 mg
Oxandrolone/day. Three to four day intervals between the
relative injections are to be observed.
Durabolin is one of the
safest non-toxic steroids offering satisfactory results.
Durabolin has no negative effect on the liver function so it can
even be taken in cases of liver disease. Side effects occur only
in rare cases and in persons who are extremely sensitive.
Virilization symptoms in women such as huskiness, deep voice,
hirsutism, acne, and increased libido are possible but occur
only rarely if reasonable dosages are taken at reasonable
intervals. Men usually experience no symptoms with Durabolin.
Since the release of gonadotropins in the hypophysis is
inhibited, there is a chance that the body's own testosterone
production in a male athlete will be lower when the compound is
taken over a prolonged time and in excessive doses.
