| Articles | August 19, 2013

Often referred to as roids, hypes, juices, weight trainers, gym candies, stackers, arnolds, or pumpers, the Anabolic steroids are synthetic hormonal drugs derived from testosterone, the primary male sex hormone. These drugs are commonly used for treating hypogonadism, delayed puberty, and some types of impotence. These drugs are also proven successful against several chronic wasting diseases, such as AIDS and Cancer.

Anabolic steroids are often taken orally in form of pills, or injected intramuscular with a needle and typically in intervals of weeks or months, but anabolic steroids are one of the extensively abused drugs today. Often, these steroids are abused as performance enhancing drugs. They are commonly used by bodybuilders, weightlifters, athletes, and jocks, to increase their strength and stamina. They are also used by young boys, girls, and teenagers for various cosmetic purposes.

However, there are a number of severe fallouts and several health risks associated with anabolic steroids. The people who share needles for using injectable steroids virtually open themselves to risk of serious infections including Hepatitis B and HIV, the AIDS virus.

Fallouts of anabolic steroids are many, and cause the serious health problems. Some of the adverse and long lasting fallouts of anabolic steroids include premature balding or hair loss, dizziness, mood swings (anger, depression and aggression), hallucinations, extreme feelings of mistrust or fear, sleeping problems, vomiting and nausea, trembling, high blood pressure, aching joints, jaundice, liver damage, urinary problems, shortening of the final adult height, increased risk of developing heart disease, and strokes.

Anabolic steroids also cause some different fallouts in Males and females. The fallouts of anabolic steroids in males include- reduced sperm count, increase in nipple and breast size, impotence, and enlarged prostate. The fallouts of anabolic steroids females include- reduced breast size, increase in facial and body hair, menstrual problems, and deepened voice.

Because of these severe fallouts, Anabolic steroids have been put under Schedule III drugs by the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) in 1991. It is illegal to buy or sell anabolic steroids without prescription in the United States. Several other countries, such as Canada, have very strict policies on Steroids.
