When injected daily Winstrol Depot can become a very expensive compound. It also has the disadvantage that, because of the frequent injections, the already mentioned scar tissue will develop in the gluteal region (buttocks) which leads many athletes to inject Winstrol in their shoulders, arms, legs or even calves. Although this was originally intended as an expedient, injecting Winstrol Depot into certain muscles has become increasingly popular since athletes have noticed that this leads to an accelerated growth of the affected muscle. An American pro bodybuilder who is known for his cross striated, horseshoe- shaped triceps owes this in considerable part to his regular "triceps Winstrol-Depot injections." A confusion with the also often used Esiclene is excluded. Athletes who want to avoid daily injections usually take 2-3ml Winstrol Depot twice a week. in the . injectable stanozolol is manufactured only for veterinary medicine.

The use of androgenic anabolic steroids may be associated with development of cholestatic hepatitis and jaundice. Other, more serious hepatotoxicities such as peliosis hepatis and hepatocellular neoplasms are rare but may occur with prolonged use or high dosages. These latter toxicities may be fatal and often not recognized until they become life-threatening. Patients with preexisting liver diseases should be monitored more closely during therapy with anabolic steroids if they are used. If liver function declines or toxicity occurs, therapy should be withdrawn and the cause investigated.
