Anticoagulants: Patients on anticoagulants such as warfarin should be carefully monitored during anabolic steroid therapy as anabolic steroids may increase sensitivity to oral anticoagulants which may require a concomitant reduction in anticoagulant dosage to achieve a desirable prothrombin time (PT). Anticoagulant patients should be monitored regularly during anabolic steroid therapy, particularly during initiation and termination of therapy. Warfarin patients should have INR and PT monitored throughout androgen therapy and warfarin dosages titrated to achieve the desired INR and PT. Such patients should be monitored for occult bleeding.
Many Anavar studies have been done using elderly males and young boys as the subject, what the studies found were that the effects of the medication were no age dependent. Subjects should use a period of “time on,” and “time off,” when using anabolic steroids, this means people lose a large amount of fat during time spent on the medication and maintain fat loss until the next cycle.
Anavar® is used for strength training and cutting purposes, but not for use in bulking up or losing a significant amount of weight. With a low dosage of Anavar®, serum testosterone, Sex Testosterone Binding Globulin (SHBG), and Leutenizing Hormone (LH) levels were lightly suppressed, considerably less than with other compounds.
In contrast, Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH), Insulin Like Growth Factor-1 (IGF1) and Growth Hormone levels for patients using a low dose of Anavar® were raised to significant levels, however, LH levels will rebound when a person stops using Anavar®.
