Re: Has anyone given up inhaled steroids & used Intal & ended up better?

Sorry about what your son is going through. However, I have never heard of "roid rage" from using an inhaled corticosteriod, like Flovent. Corticosteroids are not the same as ANABOLIC steriods...the kind that are popular with bodybuilders and professional sports. Corticosteriods are anti-inflammatory steriods, and I have never heard of "roid rage" being associated in any way, with their use. Sorry, but I think your son's former psychiatrist is mistaken and frankly, uneducated on the differences between anabolic and catabolic sterioids.
