steroid concern
Feb 23, 2008

hi, today i started using steroids and to be completely honest i have no idea what i am doing i did research it before using although alot of sites answers vary. i have 10ml of Deca & 10ml of Testosterone Cyp. im under the impression this dosage is not enough to achieve anything!, i done my first shot today and half way through it i experienced extremely hot flushes and dizziness and heavy palpatations and had to stop id like to know is this normal? i dont know whether i had a panic attack or was it actually the fluid entering that caused this doscomfort??

Response from Dr. Young

If you don't know what you're doing, you shouldn't be using anabolic steroids, especially without medical supervision.

I don't recommend their use (though fashionable it may be), unless there is a documented medical reason for their use-- ie, hypogonadism or AIDS wasting.

Outside of that, I don't think that the medical risks warrant the benefit.
