Stanozolol is the generic name of stanozolol in English , German , French , and Japanese and its INN , USAN , USP , BAN , DCF , and JAN , while stanozololum is its name in Latin , stanozololo is its name in Italian and its DCIT , and estanozolol is its name in Spanish .    Androstanazole , stanazol , stanazolol , and estanazolol are unofficial synonyms of stanozolol.   The drug is also known generically by its former developmental code names NSC-43193 and WIN-14833 . 
Stanozolol is banned for use by all sports organizations and its use is actively screened in the urine. The drug is easily detected in the urine for up to 5-7 days after the last dose. Most bodybuilders use this drug just before a sports event because of the mistaken belief that it is not detectable after a 2 week washout period. Recent advances in detection can identify metabolites of winstrol in the urine for up to 2 months. And one note of concern – the majority of bodybuilders are found to be users of anabolic steroids not because of the intellect of the scientists but because a colleague or someone close brags about the use.
