Steroid withdrawal symptoms treatment

A 21-year-old amateur bodybuilder came to a clinic feeling generally ill. His body temperature was slightly elevated and he had massive, deep ulcerations, abscesses and pustules on his chest and upper back. Persistent questioning revealed a history of continuous abuse of AASs (testosterone enanthate 250 mg and metandienona 30 mg twice a week). Physicians confirmed the diagnosis of severe AAS-induced acne conglobate. Additional lab work showed a substantial impairment in sperm concentration and reduced testicular volume. Skin lesions improved quickly after discontinuation of AAS abuse and antiseptic and antibiotic therapy, although the extensive scarring was thought to be permanent. 6

  • Detox facilities are usually inpatient, but can be outpatient as well. 5 Detox usually lasts approximately 1 week, but it can take longer if required.

  • Inpatient rehab treatment can take place in a private or hospital-type setting. The average stay is about 1 month, though treatment stays can be extended up to 90 days. Treatment can take place in individual therapy sessions, group counseling, and educational groups. Recovering steroid users develop and use the skills they need to thrive in recovery. Self-help meetings are also a vital part of many inpatient programs because they ease the transition from treatment to recovery and can make it much easier to develop strong sober supports. 5
  • Outpatient rehabilitation treatment is less restrictive than inpatient rehab, and the duration varies according to the needs of each person. These programs give people independence so they can work, attend school, and socialize with family and friends while practicing coping skills to effectively manage daily stress and triggers.
  • Partial hospitalization programs are outpatient programs that occur in a hospital setting. These programs often meet several hours a day on multiple days of the week. Treatment usually consists of group therapy, addiction education, and medical supervision and is more intense than what is provided through more standard outpatient treatment approaches.

Hello Amy and dJason, I too am in Florida and in the middle of an allergic reaction, but I am confused as I thought it was caused by the Prednisolone, am I now to understand Amy that you are saying the withdrawal causes the rash? Yesterday was my last day of the Prednislone pack, I also did a Prednisone pack before the Hurricane, (went through 36 hours with acute sciatica pain, no power, or ac) at first I thought it was a Heat Rash, was so focused on getting help for my Sciatica pain after the storm that I didn't deal with the rash except to put some aloe on it. The rash spread yesterday to my back and along the band of my underwear with red welts, the pain and itching was so bad we called the dr who recommended Benadryl which thankfully knocked me out! Back up this morning, same thing, itchy and red. So confused now, is it an allergic reaction or withdrawal, not sure how to deal...going to try and see a dermatologist next I guess...


--- Stress is often mentioned by CSS patients around the time of their diagnosis, and in a way this seems related to the adrenal glands as well. A patient in another support group reported reading in "The Stress of Life" by Dr. H. Seyle:.... "the adrenal glands are the processors of stress in our bodies. A person's stress resistance will vary with the competence of his adrenals. Continually stressing them, finally depletes them. When we become exhausted by life, on a mental or physical level, our adrenal glands often fail to keep up, and illness ensues".
