The original brand name of oxandrolone was Anavar, which was marketed in the United States and the Netherlands .   This product was eventually discontinued and replaced in the United States with a new product named Oxandrin, which is the sole remaining brand name for oxandrolone in the United States.   Oxandrolone has also been sold under the brand names Antitriol ( Spain ), Anatrophill ( France ), Lipidex ( Brazil ), Lonavar ( Argentina , Australia , Italy ), Protivar, and Vasorome ( Japan ) among others.     Additional brand names exist for products that are manufactured for the steroid black market. 
Legal Anavar is the legal version of Anavar. Although Anavar is fairly mild when it comes to side effects, it can still injure the user. Many users report not suffering from side effects as much as they do with other steroids. However, it may cause disturbances in cholesterol levels and cause or exacerbate acne. It is generally well tolerated by women, and very few develop deeper voices, enlarge clitorises, or hirsutism. In fact, some users have even referred to it as a “girl steroid” because relatively few women suffer its side effects. Other steroids present more risk of masculinaizing features.
