Do anabolic steroids interfere with low dose combination birth control? If so, which steroids?

Do anabolic steroids interfere with low dose combination birth control? If so, which steroids?

They may: I cannot find any studies of this issue, but did find several articles indicating that there are concerns that there may indeed be some interactions, especially in adolescents and young adults. WHY are you concerned about anabolic steroids? Are you using them for body building, and if so, are they prescribed? Talk to your health care professional and/or pharmacist asap as this may be harmful. ...Read more

Are the any creams that have Triamcinolone Acetonide BP 1 mg Econazole Nitrate BP 10 mg Gentamicin Sulphate BP 1 mg Sold in America?

Are the any creams that have Triamcinolone Acetonide BP 1 mg
Econazole Nitrate BP 10 mg
Gentamicin Sulphate BP 1 mg
Sold in America?

Don't think so: Haven't heard of that combination cream. However, individual creams can be prescribed if needed, and a patient can use a little bit from each tube of cream, to treat a particular rash if her doctor feels that such medications are the proper treatment of that rash. Usually, there is more than one type of cream able to treat a rash, which means that alternatives should also be available in the US. ...Read more

Can one build up a tolerance to either Alrex (loteprednol) and Pred Forte eye drops over time, decreasing their effectiveness?

Can one build up a tolerance to either Alrex (loteprednol) and Pred Forte eye drops over time, decreasing their effectiveness?

Probably not: Alrex (loteprednol) is extremely weak and you would not be likely to notice the difference. Pred Forte has a good deal of anti-inflammatory strength but is a cognate of a natural hormone so you would not lose response. The condition you are treating might get more severe however which you would interpret as the drop losing effectiveness. ...Read more

Are stridex maximum strength pads good for preventing breakouts, as well as healing scars and reducing hyper pigmentation if used daily?

Salicylic acid -acne: Salicylic acid is a very reasonable daily treatment for acne management. It is unlikely to do anything for scarring or for hyper pigmentation. There are some topical skin lighteners that can help with this. Laser treatments can also help with scarring and pigment.

Used low dose steroid suppositories 1-2x a week for a few years, and used steroid cream on legs 2x week for few years. would these cause high cortisol?

Not using now?: Hi. It sounds as if you are no longer using glucocorticoid (GC) suppositories or topical GC cream. Such treatments can SUPPRESS your own cortisol production. If you're not on those treatments anymore, your cortisol being HIGH is unrelated to the fact you used those treatments. Was cortisol hi in a 24-hr urine? People can develop Cushing's from taking a lot of GC medication. See an endocrinologist ...Read more
