A 37-year-old member asked:

Addiction Medicine 41 years experience
Hangover: When you drink, your body metabolizes alcohol into a chemical that causes the symptoms of a hangover. Some people metabolize and excrete (get rid of) this chemical so quickly, they never have a hangover. The slower you metabolize the alcohol, the more symptoms you get. Most last for a few hours, some more than 6 hours, a ver few 8-12 hours.
A 43-year-old member asked:

Legal steroids?: The strength is not important, as increasing doses make the weaker stronger. The problem is using Anabolic steroids for non-medical bodybuilding or weight gain. This class has serious emotional and physical side effects and should be used for medical problems under strict medical supervision.

Side effects: Anabolic steroids have serious emotional and physical side effects and should not be used for any non-medical bodybuilding or weight gain. If prescribed for a medical problem you will need strict medical supervision.

Dear dr. Albers, thank you for your answer. It confirms all my symptoms and the treatment that I am taking (Singulair), unfortunately, it is not terribly effective
