Frequently Asked Questions

Is steroid bad for you?
 
 

Problems with steroids are rare. Cortisone is a steroid, but it is not the performance-enhancing anabolic steroid you've heard so much about. Cortisone is more likely to cause problems when it is used chronically, such as for treating rheumatoid arthritis or for asthma. A short series of ESIs rarely causes problems.
