Stanozolol (Winstrol) Print E-mail

Dr. Kennedy Stanozolol, commonly sold under the name Winstrol (oral) and Winstrol Depot (intra-muscular), developed by Winthrop Laboratories in 1962, is a synthetic anabolic steroid derived from testosterone and approved by the FDA for human use. Unlike most other injectable anabolic steroids, Stanozolol is not esterified and is sold as an aqueous suspension, or in oral tablet form. The drug has a large oral bioavailability, due to a C17 α-alkylation which allows the hormone to survive first pass liver metabolism when ingested. It is because of this that Stanozolol is also sold in tablet form. Stanozolol is considered a safer choice for female bodybuilders in that it produces a great amount of muscle increase for a small masculinization effect, however virilization and masculinization are still very common, even at low doses. Stanozolol is ligitimately used in both animal and human patients for a number of conditions. In humans, it is successful in treating anemia and hereditary angioedema. Veterinarians prescribe the drug to improve muscle growth, red blood cell production, increase bone density and stimulate the appetite of debilitated or weakened animals. It is routinely used in race horses, usually by an intramuscular injection once each month. Stanozolol is one of the anabolic steroids commonly used as a performance enhancing drug and is banned from use in sports competition under the auspices of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) and many other sporting bodies. It is one of the drugs Barry Bonds stands accused of using.
