deca gone - now what?
Aug 5, 2002

Dr. Dieterich,

I understand that deca-durabolin is no longer being manufactured. What alternative would you suggest at this point? Would you be concerned about liver problems with a drug like oxandrolone?

Thanks in advance.

Response from Dr. Dieterich

Oxandrolone does not worry me at all, in terms of liver toxicity as long as it used at 20 mg per day or less. It is a good alternative to Deca and it is available in pill form. It works really well but you may have to take some testosterone supplements with it just as you would with deca. Good luck! DTD

Can you clarify?
wasting without meds
