Thanks for writing to us.
Oxandrolone is known to prevent normal growth in children as it causes premature closure of the bone ends where growth occus. Children who take oxandrolone may end up shorter than their counterparts. Thats why serial X rays are done for children who are prescribed these drugs.
Hope that helps
