Is there a best time of day to take anabolic steroids?

Dangerous & illegal: Are you kidding me. Unless they have been prescribed by a doctor for one of the few genuine medical uses, Anabolic steroids are illegal because they are extremely dangerous. If you are using them illegally, they are always illegal and dangerous, no matter the time of day. ...Read more

NO!!: Too many problems, side effects and long range health issues with taking steroids. I would consider a personal trainer who can coach you and exercise and nutrition for your body type. ...Read more

Can a man with klinefelters syndrome take anabolic steroids?

Testosterone needed: Men with kleinfelters usually have small testes that do not make enough testosterone. Therefore, testosterone replacement is often needed. However, once the t replacement gets your t to a normal level, more is not better. How do you judge a normal level of t replacement? It is not as straightforward as with thyroid. You need to judge bone health, male characteristics, and side effects. ...Read more

Is it safe to take anabolic steroids for those younger than 20 years old?

Dr. Holly Maes

If prescribed: If steroids were prescribed by physician for a legitimate reason, and the benefits outweigh the potential side effects of the steroids, then it is ok. But just using Anabolic steroids without a medical reason to beef yourself up is a terrible idea, no matter what your age, but even worse in developing bodies. You can cause so much long term irreversible damage - don't risk it! ...Read more

What are the best natural substitutes for anabolic steroids? At 47yrs I have low production of testosterone but still train

None: There are no "good" natural substitutes for testosterone - virtually all otc preps are taken orally and increase one's risk of peliosis hepatis/hepatitis/liver cancer, in addition to further suppressing one's native testosterone production. You should be seen by a urologist or endocrinologist. (very common - occurs in 1/4 men in our lifetimes...). ...Read more

Third time im asking this question. Which is safer? Testosterone or anabolic steroids? I know both are bad. Dont tell me "neither" which is less bad?

Testosterone worse: 'they're both bad.' (i had to say that first.) taking testosterone if you have normal levels is worse. It will shut off the production of testosterone by your testicles, which will shrink to the size of little hazelnuts. When you stop, it will take time before they get back to work. But anabolics can hurt the liver, give you acne, and make you aggressive. Skip the hormones and do more pushups! ...Read more
