Steroid Abuse

As a group of drugs (medicines) steroids are the most abused drugs, especially in the field of sports (high performance sports like boxing, wrestling, bodybuilding, soccer, rugby, athletics etc.). Anabolic steroids are not only abused by sports persons, but are abused by doctors (supposed to have knowledge about every adverse things steroids might have and despite knowing everything about steroids they also abuse steroids), patients, teachers and members of every section of society. Every abuser of steroid has his/her own reason of abuse like body builders abuse steroids for quickly building huge muscle mass, sports persons abuse for enhancing their performance in competitions, patients abuse for fast relief of their medical problem without realizing the adverse effects (despite warning about the side effects by doctors) and so on.
Steroids abuse has become a nuisance in the field of sports and also in the field of medicine. Many sports events are shadowed by the controversies and accusations due to steroids abuse by sports persons. IOC (international Olympic committee) and many other sports agencies has banned the use of steroids in sports related activities. But the use (abuse) of steroids is still continuing. Steroids are labeled as a controlled substance and is banned for use in athletic purposes by WADA (world anti-doping agency).
Steroids like oxandrolone are used in cycles known as steroid cycles (used for specific duration of time and than off from steroids and that restart it for that particular period of duration). The advantage of using steroids is to reduce side effects without losing its efficacy. Steroid cycles, particularly used by athletes to be free during competition, because during off period they can test negative and clear anti-doping test. Another advantage of steroids cycle is the benefits remain same even during off period.
