Up-to-date information on Anabolics in the United States

Aug 29, 2011

Where can one find relatively up-to-date information (i.e. less than two years old) on what anabolics are legal in the United States, available in the United States, and have been studied for their effectiveness in people with HIV related wasting and/or weight loss? Most of the information I see online is several years old. It seems a lot of website have information on drugs that one can't even obtain any more in the US and this makes it difficult to discern what is useful information and what is not.

Response from Mr. Vergel

My book Built to Survive contains all the information on anabolics for HIV wasting. It was published 10 years ago but it is still pretty relevant since most studies were done before 2000 and we have had no new studies on anabolics in HIV since then. You can find it here:
