In addition to the mentioned side effects several others have been reported. In both males and females acne are frequently reported, as well as hypertrophy of sebaceous glands, increased tallow excretion, hair loss, and alopecia. There is some evidence that anabolic steroid abuse may affect the immune system, leading to a decreased effectiveness of the defense system. Steroid use decreases the glucose tolerance, while there is an increase in insulin resistance. These changes mimic Type II diabetes. These changes seem to be reversible after abstention from the drugs.
A few weeks agao I’ve had a really stubborn sinusitis and after a few weeks my doctor told me I had to take antibiotics to get rid of it. The last time I’ve taken antibiotics was years ago. I haven’t had any side effects but after 3-4 days I’ve noticed that my skin cleared up. To be honest it didn’t occur to me that it may be the antibiotics. After the last pill (10 days) my skin looked better than it did in years. Seriously, so amazing. Then I’ve read that this medicine indicated for acne. After 1 1/2 weeks my skin got back to normal, though. So disappointing, but I’ve had already expected it.
