Steroid treatment and Lyme. Contraindications?


As I understand it, when it's warned against steroid therapy and Lyme.
They are referring to the immune suppressant drug cortisol?

I have a medical condition which requires me to use the Androgenic/Anabolic steroid Durabolin. From what I can read, it's actions are nothing like those of cortisol, but when it's warned against steroids, I can't help but wonder if it's immune suppressant steroids they mean, or all types of steroids, regardless of actions..

If you know of any contraindications between Lyme and Durabolin (Nandrolone Phenylpropionate), I would really like to know...

Re: Steroid treatment and Lyme. Contraindications?

Hi jackson339, welcome to the board!

It is my understanding that people who have Lyme should not take steroids because they can make symptoms worse.

I do not know if the one you are taking would be included. Do you have Lyme disease? Are you being treated by a knowledgeable doctor? If so, ask the doctor to see what he/she thinks.
