    Can this be used.....

    I've been told, the corticosteroid, Dexamethasone Sodium Phosphate can be used as a performance enhancer, even though it is not an anabolic steriod . Is this true? Any help is appreciated.

    doubt it

    Corticosteroids are a group of anti-inflammatory drugs similar to the natural corticosteroid hormones produced by the cortex of the adrenal glands . Among the disorders that often improve with corticosteroid treatment are asthma , allergic rhinitis , eczema and rheumatoid arthritis.
    How these anti-inflammatory agents inhibit late phase allergic reactions occurs via a variety of mechanisms, including decreasing the density of mast cells along mucosal surfaces, decreasing chemotaxis and activation of eosinophils , decreasing cytokine production by lymphocytes , monocytes , mast cells and eosinophils, inhibiting the metabolism of arachidonic acid and other mechanisms. But for the side effects, corticosteroids would be the only drug needed for treating most allergic reactions. Much effort is underway to develop safer corticosteroids including topical application and modifying the molecules to preserve the anti-inflammatory properties while minimizing the undesirable side effects.

    I have never heard of that...I wouldn't bother...many cause sides that are not worth a "moon face" and water retention.
