What's wrong?
Aug 27, 2002

I feel feverish and get a pounding headache when I take Winstrol or Oxandrine. My doctor took me off any steroid but does'nt know the cause. What are possible scenarios to this reaction?

Response from Dr. Boyle

Headaches and fevers are not commonly associated with either of these medications. It's tough to say why you are having them, but since these are both anabolic steroids it must be some hormonal shift that is taking place, potentially causing vascular instability. If your doctor thinks you need anabolic steroids, you might try a different one and start with very low doses.

Oxandrine or Winstrol
