There are a number of sources on the internet which outline regimes (cycles) whereby steroids are taken as part of a training regime over a period of 6-12 weeks, gradually increasing then reducing the dose and then coming off completely (e.g. to enter a competition). These regimes commonly recommend dosages well in excess of recommended levels, sometimes 4-8 times the pharmaceutical dose.
The recommended route of administration for steroids is an intramuscular injection, which delivers the drug to the site of action and bypasses first-pass metabolism in the liver, as would occur with oral tablets/capsules, with an increased risk of liver damage as a result. Clearly, any medically-unsupervised injection practice carries with it the risk of blood-borne infections such as hepatitis and HIV.
Unlike most controlled drugs, the majority of steroids appear on the market as pharmaceutical preparations, in blister packs of tablets, glass ampoules for injection, or multi-dose vials, labelled with brand-names and/or contents. Such products can be either legitimate – manufactured legally by pharmaceutical companies, mainly overseas – or counterfeit, where the contents do not match the description and often contain either different substances or no active ingredients.
