Some people have heart attacks with one cycle. Just because YOU have reacted well, does not mean that they are safe.
Source please. Compared to many other prescription drugs and hard drugs, they are very safe and definitely don't deserve to be Schedule III... If
someone is taking multiple oral steroids as well as injectibles at the same time, I would consider that abuse and their liver will suffer. Many of
the people that have issues are self medicating and have not done the research to do it safely. They don't get bloodwork before, during, and after
to keep them selves safe and healthy. The majority of people have no problems at all though.
Commonly Prescribed Drugs May Cause Fatal Heart Attacks
Originally posted by captaintyinknots There are MANY different types of steroids, however. Most have not been tested over any
Official medical studies? No, there are not a lot of medical studies done on schedule III drugs. Many thousands of anecdotal reports from people
that are experimenting on themselves? Most definitely - with the majority report mainly positive results from a sample size much greater than any
study could muster. In the body building community, there are generally accepted practices that the veterans encourage the novices to follow. If the
newbies are planning something that is not a good idea or potentially unhealthy the vets will hammer them and let them know they are being stupid (As
well as point them in the right direction). Most of the vets are more knowledgeable about the effects and use of steroids than a lot of doctors
because the medical community doesn't do a lot of steroid studies.

say 'roid rage' is BS is ignorant. It is very real, and proven so.
Yes, on MY reaction as well as MANY others that have no aggressive side effects. Are there some that show increased aggression? Sure - but they are
the minority and most likely predisposed to anger and with the increased confidence brought on by the strength/size boost steroids, they think they
are a bad ass and can get away with it, or perhaps they have some insecurity that they are making up for now that they are bigger and stronger.
Originally posted by captaintyinknotsNo, not everyone who has used steroids will be a rager.
Again, different people react differently to different things.
But the media would have you believe otherwise and that the instant after an injection they will go on a rampage. This is simply not true.
I think most people would be surprised at how many "normal" people use steroids.
I think we are getting a little off topic though... It's obvious that there is an increase amount of violence from law enforcement, but I don't
think steroids are a significant or direct cause - I think there are a lot of other factors that have contributed to it.
