steroids and hepatitis
Jan 1, 2007

does taking anabolic steroids have any effect on hepatitis vaccination

Response from Dr. McGovern

I would not favor taking steroids at the time of vaccination because I would be concerned that they could dampen the effect of immunization.

owever, if you have already finished taking the vaccine, you can just check for effectiveness of the vaccine, by having a blood test for hepatitis B surface antibody. If it is positive, the vaccine worked just fine.

Please, help me!!!!!
