the use of oxandrin and megace together
Jan 19, 2000

my doc had prescribed oxandrin and megace together for my d4t related wasting in face and legs.since one is testosterone and the other a female hormone do they cancel each other out? it seems a strange mix to me...thanks

Response from Dr. Dieterich

The megace may add some fat to your face and the oxandrolone will help add muscle. However they will both drive your testosterone down to the floor, and if you are not on testosterone supplementation, you had better consider it soon!

Women prescribed steroids
Have you Drs. ever heard of this...
