Using Oral Spironolactone

Hear me out here.

I’ve been screwed over on the internet too many times and now I’m thinking it’s time to get an actual prescription for steroids. Problem is my testosterone levels are normal so I would likely not get a prescription.

I was thinking about temporarily going on an anti-androgen like spironolactone. Spiro from what I have heard is well tolerated and not toxic to your liver like other anti-androgens are.

There are a couple of potential problems with this though.

  1. Would the tests used to detect hormone levels pick up this drug? If so my doctor would probably tell me to stop taking the spiro rather than writing the steroid prescription.

  2. Say I actually do convince my doctor to give me a prescription. Problem is, I’m afraid he’ll only write a prescription for some shitty topical testosterone like androgel which doesn’t do shit. Has anyone who has gotten a prescription for steroids ever convinced a doctor to write them something which actually helps for performance enhancement like anavar or testosterone cypionate?

Thanks for your help.
