Oral Steroids

There is no doubt about it, oral steroids have a welcomed place in the anabolic steroid family. With their very fast-acting nature, short half-lives and generally very potent nature, oral steroids can often provide the missing link to any successful cycle as well give it an octane boost unlike any other. For many anabolic steroid users the start of a new cycle is an exciting time; looking forward to the impending increase in size or strength is often as exciting for some as Christmas morning is for a little child. If you know anything about the muscle game you understand patience and consistency are two of the biggest factors to success but sometimes patience is asking a lot when excitement takes the leading hand. For this reason, although oral steroids wont provide the long-lasting effects many injectable steroids will, oral steroids will however provide a flame in the front end as well as some benefits throughout.

Oral steroids are those that come in tablet or liquid suspension forms. Some common examples include Anadrol, Dianabol, and Halotestin. They require daily dosing, either all at once or broken down into two or more doses throughout the day, and they are generally the most hepatotoxic (liver toxic) of all of the steroids out there. What’s more, oral steroids carry side effects that include significant bloating, high blood pressure, and headaches. However, expert steroid users all agree that there is nothing like a powerful oral steroid to promote massive gains in short order. For this reason, many bodybuilders choose oral steroids over their injectable counterparts.

Oral steroids like all other forms of medication come with their respective quota of side effects. While some of these effects can be ignored, others can be life threatening. But users need not worry as steroid usage within the limits and guidelines designed by your doctor will keep any side effects under check. However, steroid abusers need to be very careful about the amount of dose they consume.

Oral steroids are 17-alpha alkylated, which means they have been modified to adapt during the administration phase and survive entry into the bloodstream. These modifications to oral steroids ensure that the liver fails to dissolve the steroid through its filtration attempt and the steroid can successfully initiate its desired action.

As is with all forms of anabolic steroids the same rule applies to oral steroids and that is responsible use. It is without a question those who abundantly abuse anabolic steroids inevitably give them a bad name and this “bad name” can be given in a much easier fashion with oral steroids than perhaps any others. Oral steroids are in many cases quite toxic to the liver, they can increase blood pressure dramatically in some individuals and for the already hostile individual increase aggression to means unacceptable. It is very important to keep your oral steroid use to a minimum. In general six weeks of a particular oral steroid is long enough; many will find four week periods to be far more suited. As it should be with all anabolic steroids, keep an eye on your body; consult with your physician on a regular basis to make sure problems do not arise.
