Initially, oxandrolone has been developed for the treatment of debilitated HIV-infected patients with Turner syndrome, anemia, to recover from burns, strengthen bones, but soon it began to actively use in bodybuilding, then Oxan was listed as a controlled substance.

The first signs of liver damage is a pain in the right upper quadrant, light stools and dark urine.

Oxandrolone aka anavar is prefered by those individuals who are willing to gain gradually and with little to none side effects.
Oxandrolone has no significant effect on the level of natural testosterone production in moderate doses (does not inhibit the hypothalamic-pituitary-testes feedback mechanism axis). When the dosage of Anavar is high, the body reacts to a decrease in gonadotropin production, suggesting that endogenous testosterone level is too high. Lack of stimulation of Leydig cells leads to testicular atrophy. Oxan is used in a dose of 80 mg per day suppresses testosterone levels after 12 weeks of 67%
