  • Anabolic Steroids and Withdrawal

Athletes who use steroids can experience withdrawal symptoms when they quit. The symptoms include mood swings, depression, fatigue and irritability, loss of appetite, insomnia, and aggression. Depression can even lead to suicide attempts, if untreated.

  • Cycle: A period of steroid use often 8 or more weeks in length, followed by a similar period of disuse. This is known as cycling on and off AAS.
  • Pyramiding: This is when users build up to their heaviest dose on a cycle. Though prevalent in the early days of steroid use, this method was found unnecessary and is virtually no longer practiced.
  • Stacking: The process of combining drugs, or using more than one drug within a cycle.
  • Tapering: This is the opposite of Pyramiding. Users begin with their highest dose and gradually decrease in an effort to minimize the side effects associated with coming off.  As with pyramiding, this method is obsolete.
history of steroids
History of Steroids
  • While the modern history of steroids is still relatively young, the complete history of steroids can be traced back to ancient Greece. This part of the history of steroids is when Olympic athletes were thought to have used plant derivatives, all meat diets and animal testicles as performance enhancers.
  • The more modern history of steroids begins in the 1930's. This part of the history of steroids is when anabolic steroids were born, but they didn't really take off as a phenomenon yet. In the 1950's at a World Weightlifting Competition, people noticed the Soviet team taking pills and this is the part of the history of steroids where people started taking notice of the drugs' true abilities
blood doping
Blood Doping
  • Endurance sports such as cycling or distance running put a significant amount of stress on an athlete's entire system, from the lungs to the bloodstream to the muscles. In order to maintain stamina, an athlete's muscles require steady supplies of oxygen contained within red blood cells. In theory, more red blood cells should give an athlete a natural edge during competition. This questionable training philosophy is behind an illicit practice called "blood doping," also known as "blood packing."

Blood Doping
  • Blood doping involves harvesting an athlete's own blood before a competition or finding a matching blood donor. This blood is usually processed in order to create a concentration of red blood cells, then frozen until needed for transfusion back into the athlete shortly before the event.
