    Anavar and RBC count

    Hey,

    So I've been getting typical symptoms of polycythemia.

    Pains In chest, blurred vision, dried skin after washing etc..

    Does Anavar increase your rbc a lot compared to other chemicals?

    I'm also seeing a cardiologist soon just to get checked up, sure nothings up with my heart it's either high rbc or anxiety. Had an echo a 7 months back after a black out incident, and heart was healthy.


    I gave blood today, and feel good. No pains as of yet, no palpitations etc..

    Any Input will be appreciated

    Thanks

    I've never experience any increase of RBC with var, I've also not experienced those sides when I have.

    How much are you using and how long have you been on anavar? Oxandrolone/oxandrin is associated with an increased risk of polycythemia and CHF but the occurrence o each is extremely rare. So, it is possible, though very uncommon. Was there evidence of clotting factor suppression in your blood work? Liver function tests normal?

    When i was running 500mg test enth a week and 50mg anavar a day i had elevated RBC. I ended up in A&E because of chest pains and palpitations and then got admitted. Ive never experienced these sides when using just test enth so i put it down to the var, or it never agreed with me.

    I'm not on at the moment, I should be but I'm not because I want to see cariodligist before I do.

    This is post cycle that I finished about 3.5 months ago, was 60mg per day 6 weeks . It's only the past month I've been getting these sides, I was thinking rbc stayed elevated and also increased even off cycle.

    There wasn't evidence when I had blood work, will get blood work this week and see what happening. Liver function is spot on.

    I going to say its anxiety or something's up with my heart but I highly doubt it, had tests done for heart less than 7 months. I was thinking the var was pretty light so surely couldn't be!! Thanks for input

    I monitor my bloods frequently and never have seen an increase in RBC that
    would be a problem.

    None of those are normal symptoms of polycythemia.
