I'm just getting into weightlifing and considering using PED's (performing-enhancing drugs) but I have issues with depression and wondering what affect this might have on me physically, emotionally and psychologically including sexually. I'm 21 years old and need some direction.

I personally wouldn't recommend them. You would be better off just sticking with a exercising and a free weights regiment with a proper diet included.

When you start to notice a difference in your physique (the natural way) depending if your depression is caused by your physique, then you may start feel better about things. But the emotional and psychological problems may have another cause... in which you may want to seek professional help. And there would absolutely be no shame in that, if it gets you the help you need.

I would say stay far away from PED's and stay all natural. But I couldn't see what it would hurt to talk to your physician about it. In fact, it would be highly recommended to talk to a professional about all of the above.

This is my best guess anyway, and thought I would try to help. But this site is not exactly advisable for questions that may contain any sort of life altering situations.

You may have a joker step in from time to time and give you some highly questionable advice... like try and get yourself a wife. You see... wives have an opinion on everything,(so no professionals needed), they are always right(in their not so humble opinions), and they will immediately replace the need for exercise with endless honey-do lists. Hmmm.... which come to think of it, usually involves lots of work... and that sort of resembles exercise. And I seem to be serving her needs most of the time.

Now that I think of it, I do believe that I have been snookered :).

Good luck weight lifter...

I concur with Mr. Will Munny.

Additionally, if you are already experiencing depression the use of PED's can exacerbate those symptoms. Also, user's of Ped's reportedly have severe shifts in their mood. Often time these mood swings can be very aggressive in nature. The medical term for this is roid rage.

Liver damage and jaundice is associated with the use of performance enhancing drugs. Males can become infertile and experience breast growth. Other side effects also include abnormal enlargement of the hands, feet, and face, enlarged heart, kidneys, tongue, and liver; and heart malfunction.

Before making a decision I URGE you to speak with your physician prior to any use of performance enhancing drugs.

You are young and have a full life ahead of you; it is important that you make the right choice with regards to this issue.

Best Wishes
