i'm on anabolic steroids, small doses for muscle. i took two vaccinations today, one for tetanus and the other for hepatitis A. I didn't mention it to the doctor since they are illegal. will i be ok?

Response from Dr. Fried

This type of information should not be withheld from your physician because it has implications if you get other illnesses that could be related to the anabolic steroid use, particularly severe liver damage. These types of steroids can be dangerous with long-lasting consequences that you will not be happy about. I am not aware of any adverse effects of vaccines with anabolic steroids.

85y/o male w/ hepatitis C what are TX options?
