Contact lens wear can be an inflammatory influence under normal circumstances, but an alreadysensitized cornea can show rebound inflammation if proper steps aren’t taken. It is imperative to use the immunosuppressive benefits of steroids with a slow taper as contact lens wear is resumed, or the patient will suffer setbacks and require multiple office visits. We typically restart limited contact lens wear when the rehabilitating cornea can tolerate a limited steroid dosage of once to twice daily.
Dee, Mary, Leigh, May God bless you all. I am 110%+ back to normal. It took about 9-10 months for my body to fully recover from this drug. I learned a lot about this medication through my experience. I can assure you all there is hope for you. Even when you are at your worst. It just takes a very long time for your body to reset after taking this med. You are all in my prayers. Bless you! If you have any questions please feel free to ask, due to my experience and knowledge gained through this time I periodically look back at this form just to pray for people going through what I went through.
Even though anabolic steroids do not cause the same high as other drugs, they can lead to addiction. Studies have shown that animals will self-administer steroids when they have the chance, just as they do with other addictive drugs. People may continue to abuse steroids despite physical problems, high costs to buy the drugs, and negative effects on their relationships. These behaviors reflect steroids' addictive potential. Research has further found that some steroid users turn to other drugs, such as opioids, to reduce sleep problems and irritability caused by steroids.
