Can you tell me how drug dealers get dianobol and all these other anabolic steroids?

Can you tell me how drug dealers get dianobol and all these other anabolic steroids?

Many places: For the most part, pharmaceutical drugs are diverted by corrupt workers in retail pharmacies, more so in wholesale pharmacies and the pharmaceutical companies themselves, as well as their warehouses. In some cases, there are chemists with their own labs who actually make the stuff, and that can be a problem because quality control isn't what it could be. Bad docs and clinics prescribe them too. ...Read more

Can you rec some vitamins and herbal supplements or OTC drugs that can help kick heroine addiction?

Can you rec some vitamins and herbal supplements or OTC drugs that can help kick heroine addiction?

There aren't any: The chances of an individual kicking on one's own is very, very low. Opioid withdrawal results in widespread pain, chills, aches/pains, diarrhea and vomiting, as well as anxiety and insomnia. It is usually too severe by day 2-3 for people to stand it, and they use again. Some meds can help a little (tylenol, motrin, pepto bismol) but real help means a doctor helping you. Please get into treatment. ...Read more

Hereditary angeoedemia . How can it be treated?  Benedryl and steroids do not work,  antihistamines do not help. angeoedemia coupled w/ uticaria

Many options: There are currently several drugs in the market to treat this potentially deadly problem. Anabolic steroid had mostly been used for this disorder until the past few years. Consult an allergist ASAP since this disorder has nothing to do with histamine and thus antihistamine, steroid , and even epinephrine won't help. It can easily be treated nowadays. Make the appointment now. ...Read more

Can you mix nitrofurantoin and levofloxacin or are they antagonists?

Can you mix nitrofurantoin and levofloxacin or are they antagonists?

You *may*, but ...: The only time I would see using these at the same time is in the unfortunate circumstance that you were treating a urinary tract infection with the nitrofurantoin and a different infection with the levofloxacin - a highly unlikely circumstance. There's no reason to be using the two together to be treating the same infection. When it comes to antibacterials, never ever use more than you need. ...Read more
