its not plain steroids that is used for body building, its anabolic steroids which is more costlier, i took it, it really helped me to build the body. dont use for long time only for short time for 1-2 months. my gym coach also said most of the actors like amir or salman khan also take steroids for 6 packs and body buiding.

Steroids help you to gain weight, but it also has many sideeffects like causing low calcium in blood, high blood sugar, high blood pressure. So check with the doctor before taking this medicaions. Instead of taking these drugs you can go to Gym, eat high protein foods for weight gain

there are lot of side effects. body building is by work out and not by drugs which is aganist the ethics. dont you read news paper that people are getting caught in dope tests and are banned from the sports for life time? it is hormonal and will impair your bodys function.

I have been using steroid scalp application for my psoriasis for many years by now and this is the only medication that seems to be working on my condition. I only apply it when redness and itchiness occur. I have learned lately that using this type of medication which contains steroids may have serious side effects such as the effect on normal production of steroids in the body. What would that exactly mean? What are the symptoms in such cases? Does it have anything to do with metabolism or overweight issues?
