steroids and hiv
Aug 24, 2003

does steroids proggress the virus? Is it dangerous to use steroids as a positive athelete?

Response from Mr. Vergel

Corticoid steroids (anti-inflammatory stetoids like corticone, prednisone, ect) may speed up AIDS. Anabolic steroids have not been shown to be suppressive to the immune system, but they can have side effects, so it is important to be monitored by a physician that knows about this therapy.
