It is very common for bodybuilders to use veterinary steroids for a precontest cycle. Since they are typically assimilated quickly, they do the best work in the shortest amount of time, and are generally out of the system relatively fast in comparison to other ‘roids. And, believe it or not, usually people see fewer side effects when using vet products than when using human ones. Why take anything else? Maybe not ‘why take anything else’, but why not include veterinary steroids, in one form or another, in every cycle? In my mind, veterinary drugs should really be everyone’s choice for extreme condition and definition. They combine well with androgens and other anabolics as well as any drug in the human realm of anabolic steroids. The only problem, these days anyway, is availability. You can find them in Mexico, but you risk fakes, counterfeits, lower quality, or lower dose per ml. You also, of course, face the possibility that you’ll be stopped.
Each user experiences their own unique feelings when using steroids and coming off the drug. When someone chooses to stop using they can experience a variety of withdrawal symptoms linked to addiction. Symptoms can include mood swings, fatigue, restlessness, loss of appetite, insomnia, reduced sex drive, the desire to take more steroids, and depression. Evidence for steroid addiction is certainly not as strong as it is for other drugs like cocaine or heroin. Though it is clear that people develop a tolerance and dependence on them and willingly experience negative consequences when using steroids - both of which are signs for drug dependence.
Anabolic steroids are synthetic substances related to male sex hormones (androgens). Although it is illegal in the United States to possess or distribute anabolic steroids for nonmedical use, a "black market" for them exists, and many amateur and professional athletes take them to enhance performance. In many cases, the athletes take doses that are extremely high—perhaps 100 times the doses that might be prescribed for medical use. As a result, they put themselves in real danger of short-term and long-term health problems. Blood testing, as has been used in the Olympic Games, can detect, identify, and quantify the presence of anabolic steroids in the blood of athletes, which can lead to the disqualification of an athlete.
