Side effects that are a little more exclusive to Winstrol Depot have much to do with the uncomfortable and highly irritating injections (resulting almost exclusively from the suspension format). It is not uncommon to have very sore injection sites in the hours and days following administration, and to have a significant loss of range of motion of that muscle due to the pain. Often times, bodybuilders will even have to shift and schedule workouts around their Winstrol Depot injections, as the muscles injected might be too sore and tender to train soon afterwards. Winstrol itself carries with it comes significant side effects as well, most particularly the significant negative impacts on cholesterol levels in the body. Winstrol is notorious for reducing HDL (good cholesterol) levels and increasing LDL (bad cholesterol) levels in the body, which can contribute to increased risk for cardiovascular disease if left negatively altered for extended periods of time. Proper supplementation with cardiovascular supportive nutrients and compounds are highly advised. Being that Winstrol Depot is also C17AA modified, it does exhibit potential liver toxicity, although less so than its oral counterpart. Regardless, it is highly advised to include proven effective liver support compounds (such as TUDCA and/or NAC) during a cycle of Winstrol Depot.
Users of winstrol often report good gains in strength, vascularity, and muscle tone. People often report very intense muscle “pumps” during workouts when using this compound. Some studies have also shown that winstrol has estrogen and progesterone blocking abilities, making it a good choice to use with other steroids such as Testosterone, Nandrolone, or Trenbolone. Winstrol also does a very good job of reducing the amount of SHBG in the body, thus allowing other steroids to be much more abundant in their free state in the body. Due to this fact, Winstrol Depot makes a great addition to all cycles.
