Hey, great list!
I don’t use them personally, but I train with a few women who do. I’ve noticed some of the side effects and they’ve mentioned it too.
But I didn’t know what to look for and how many alternatives there were – so while I’ll probably still choose not to use any (my goals are just to stay active), I’ll pass this along to my friends who want different results than I do. Maybe it’ll help them make some good choices, or to switch to something with fewer (or no) side effects.
Like all DHT anabolic steroids Anavar side effects can include acne and hair-loss but there are important things to note. Most who supplement with this steroid will not fall prey to acne if they keep their skin clean and generally only those who are predisposed to serious acne problems will have a problem. Further, one reason some run into problems is because they purchase products of an unsanitary nature; as always, buy human grade and only human grade and so many of your concerns will be eliminated. As it pertains to hair-loss, it is true, Anavar side effects can include this as can almost all DHT steroids but its not as cut and dry as you think. If any DHT derived anabolic steroid causes you to lose any hair guess what; you were going to lose it any way. DHT based hair-loss only speeds up the process, you were already going to go bald. If you are not predisposed to male pattern baldness there is no DHT steroid on earth that will cause you to lose the first hair, not even Anavar.
While 50mg-80mg is the average range, Anavar dosages can safely reach the 100mg per day range. However, there are two important things we must consider. The Oxandrolone hormone is by no means cheap; 10mg tabs can cost anywhere from $2-$5 a piece depending on the source and brand. Further, regarding the 100mg mark, Anavar dosages above this mark will not make a massive difference. The Oxandrolone hormone appears to have a fast falloff point past the 100mg mark. Granted, past 100mg you might see a little more progress, but nothing of any true substance and by no means in any way that has that justified what you’ll be paying for it.
