Thank you for asking
There is no such word as safe when it comes to anabolic steroids.the one you mentioned is oxandrolone and is indicated for some troubles as list resort like osteoporosis or hiv wastage or severe cachexia after extensive surgeries or debilitations etc. Your case is none of them.why do you wanna mess with your hormones?
Here are some adverse effects anavar is notorious for.

Bladder irritability

Nutshell, stay thousands miles away from it unless you are HIV or have BMI less than 17 or dying from cancer or bones as fragulfragile as paper. Which I am sure you are not.
I hope it helps. Take good care of yourself and don't forget to close the discussion please.
May the odds be ever in your favour.
