Oxandrin / Fascial wasting
Apr 28, 2004

My Dr. recently started me on Oxandrin (10 MG 2x per day) He felt this would combat fatigue however I've noticed my fascial wasting is getting worse. Could the Oxandrin be a cause?

Thank you, BH

Response from Dr. Moyle

Yes, anabolic steroids strip fat to increase muscle mass. If you don't have much fat to begin with, the extra loss may become evident quickly. Since when is an anabolic steroid treatment for fatigue anyway?

Kind regards
