Clenbuterol Side Effects. Clenbuterol, or "clen," is a veterinary drug originally used to treat respiratory diseases in horses. It has since been used to add bulk to livestock, though the United States has banned and monitors such use. According to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), clenbuterol is currently being used illicitly as a muscle-enhancing, fat-reducing agent among athletes, bodybuilders and others seeking a trim, muscular physique. Clenbuterol poses numerous side effects, some of which are life-threatening.
Psychiatric Side Effects

Clenbuterol has been shown to produce serious psychiatric side effects in women. According to research published in 2000 in "Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics," 33 percent of female athletes studied reported abuse of clenbuterol currently or in the past, often in addition to other performance-enhancing drugs. Of these women, numerous described addiction to clenbuterol. Fifty-six percent of the women who used clenbuterol reported hypomania, which is an elevated or irritable mood, and 40 percent reported depression during withdrawal from the drug.

Women and men may experience rapid or irregular heartbeat, muscle spasms and general nervousness. Since clenbuterol is easily absorbed and stays in the body for up to 39 hours after ingestion, these effects may last for one to two days. Women with a family or personal history of heart problems, kidney disease or heart defects may reap the most serious cardiovascular effects from clenbuterol. Severe cardiovascular disturbances associated with clenbuterol may result in death.
