Question: Anabolic steroids and increased eye pressure

 mboris_ns - Thu Apr 01, 2004 6:20 pm

I would like to use Anavar or Deca-durabolin for muscle building purposes,
6 week cycle.

Do anabolic steroids increase eye pressure, and can they lead to glaucoma?

Thanks very much for your help!

User avatar Dear mboris_ns,

Steroids can use increased intra-ocular pressure and may be glaucoma.

Anabolic steroids might do the same.

Steroids are medications that have lots of potential complications, please, use them only under strict medical supervision. Anabolic steroids are actually controlled substances in the united states. i would advise you not to use any medications (whether steroids or others) unless absolutely necessary.

Thank you very much for using our website and i hope that this information helped.

Yasser Mokhtar, M.D.
