Anabolic steroids: D2-519/2016E-PDF

"There are two types of steroids - corticosteroids and anabolic steroids. Corticosteroids include drugs such as prednisone, cortisone, depomedrol and celestone and are useful because of their strong anti-inflammatory properties. Corticosteroids are prescribed by physicians for the treatment of many medical problems. Anabolic steroids include drugs such as Stanozolol, Danazol, Nandrolone and Androl.
