Oedema, cholestatic jaundice, hepatic carcinoma. Gynaecomastia. Precocious puberty & shortening of stature due to early closure of epiphysis. Rashes, cramps, dyspepsia. Virilisation which appears in sensitive women as hoarseness, acne, hirsutism, and increased libido and menstrual irregularities.
Patients with the following conditions should be monitored:
1) In cardiac failure, renal dysfunction, hypertension, epilepsy or migraine (or a history of these conditions), since anabolic steroids may induce salt and fluid retention.
2) Diabetes, since anabolic steroids may improve the glucose tolerance and decrease the need for insulin or other antidiabetic drugs.
3) Incomplete statural growth, since anabolic steroids in high dosages may accelerate epiphyseal closure.
4) Skeletal metastases, since anabolic steroids may induce hypercalcemia and hypercalciuria in these patients.
5) Liver dysfunction.
6) If signs of virilization develops, treatment should be discontinued.
