Patients are at increased risk for many types of infections, from minor fungal infections in the mouth (“thrush”, caused by Candida ) to life–threatening infections such as Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia. The higher the steroid dose and the longer the duration of therapy, the greater the risk of infection. The risk is also increased when patients receive combinations of immunosuppressive medications, such as cyclophosphamide (cytoxan) and prednisone. The risk of some infections can be greatly reduced by taking specific types of antibiotics prophylactically.

In some countries, such as Mexico, there are very few laws or restrictions in place when it comes to where to buy steroids. It’s possible to get them in pharmacies without a prescription, and some even obtain them from veterinarians. Keep in mind that while this practice is considered legal in these countries, there are very strict laws that prevent you from carrying steroids across international borders. These penalties often include jailtime and large fines, and they can have lifelong impacts. If you choose to purchase anabolic steroids for sale in other countries, do so safely.
