The most common side effect is dry joints aka your joints are painful, so you need to take some joint supplements. Winstrol is usually complimented well by a combination of glucosamine, chondroitin, msm, calcium and collagen/vitamin C. If you take joint support formulas with those ingredients, you should remedy most of your joint problems. The next issue is liver problems, which are common for all oral steroids (even injectable to some degree); therefore, you should take N2Guard to make sure your liver is protected. N2Guard does a great job at protecting your liver, kidneys, heart and overall health during a winstrol cycle.
Stanozolol appears to offer less hepatic stress than an equivalent dose of Dianabol (methandrostenolone). Studies giving 12mg of stanozolol per day for 27 weeks failed to demonstrate clinically-significant changes in markers of liver function, including serum aspartate amino-transferase, alanine amino-transferase, gamma-glutamyltransferase, bilirubin, and alkaline phosphatase. 621 Relative hepatotoxicity increases as the dosage escalates, so hepatic dysfunction should still be a concern. In rare instances, high doses (alone or in combination with other steroids) have been implicated in cases of serious life-threatening hepatotoxicity in bodybuilders. Injectable stanozolol has also been implicated in severe hepatotoxicity in an otherwise healthy bodybuilder, 622 and should not be used as an alternative medication when liver toxicity precludes oral stanozolol use.
