Although there is no doubt that the positive effects are spectacular,
it often comes at a price as it is an anabolic steroid which can cause
very significant complications. Oral form of this steroid is still
useful in a therapeutic setting but because of the potential for
toxicity, its use is far less than would otherwise be expected.
Part of the reason that the side effects of Anadrol are particularly problematic is that the steroid still remains somewhat of a mystery with science unable to fully explain why it causes some of the reactions it does.
