    Re: steroids and anti-depressants

    sorry to hear about your mate, but sooooo many variables could be responsible here, and its soooo anecdotal its not funny... I could easily claim that the recession is because of aas as it raises agression and makes bankers take stupid risks...

    Re: steroids and anti-depressants

    Had to study antidepressants as part of work for around five years and never came across anything that suggested a significant contraindication with AAS.

    What antidepressant was it?

    There's a big difference between types and some of them expressly require no alcohol as the interaction in the liver can cause malabsorption of the antidepressants and put large strain on the cells of the liver - or more likely can cause extreme drowsiness and other side effects (including nausea).

    Foaming at the mouth & can't breath sounds more like an anaphylaxic/allergic reaction.... or even a heart attack, but is impossible to say.

    Re: steroids and anti-depressants

    Sounds a little like anaphylaxis, however what gets me is that anaphylaxis is normally a pretty instant reaction. Would like to know what antidepressant it was and why he was given it tbh (I see above that you don't know)... pretty dodgy someone giving him something that was not prescribed for him. Mixing antidepressants with alcohol tend to give a massive sedation type of effect. Sounds a little unfortunate what happened to him :(

    Re: steroids and anti-depressants

    I have heard of some reactions from anti depressants but it seems a bit strange to cause death if his mate gave him the anti depressant was he sure that it was what his mate said it was and he was not given some different kind of pill by accident?

    True as i say he was a proper alcoholic at one time and used to drink with the people on the streets used to know them all (a right odd bunch).So it may well have not been an antidepressant but its just what i was told and what he told the hospital when he had his stomach pumped.

    Re: steroids and anti-depressants

    Im on amitryptaline 100mg per day and not had any adverse effects so far , ive also been on citalopram and prozac in past and had no problems.
    But thats me, and i did a little research before current cycle and didnt notice any problems from other people, (maybe i wasnt looking hard enough though), so would say to anyone else using any to have a proper look.
    Its a shame you didnt know what tab it was, as they do vary lots.

    It wasn't the cause.
    Sorry about your mate but it certainly wasn't an interaction between steroids and anti D's that caused his death.
