It also may lead to sterility and cause endocrine problems. If any of these problems does occur, no treatment will be helpful. On the other hand, a very small amount of Winstrol can prevent the appearance of this side effect. In men, gynecomastia may develop as a side effect of combining Winstrol with other drugs. The signs that foretell gynecomastia are reddening of the nipples and itching in that area. It is highly recommended that men consume 0.25 mg of Arimidex everyday during one cycle, or 20 mg a day of Nolvadex. The side effect that can lead to death is liver damage. If you want to avoid this type of Winstrol side effect, you can take some form of a liver support. Vitamins E and C, selenium and zinc can also increase antioxidants that are good for liver.
