TO WHOM THIS MAY CONCERN:
My husband is using steroids and is also a member of your forum. What I am sure he has not disclosed is he suffers from a serious case of high blood presure, he takes "Metoprolol"(beta blocker) , which slows down the heart so it doesnt have to work as hard,
all the while he is taken steroids to get bigger. Needless to say I am very worried for his wellbeing, I struggle everyday with him about this, I have even broken his bottles, he gets more. I am asking someone out there with a kind heart to post a note about how serious it is to take steroids with a heart condition. I do not know what he takes I only know he shoots himslef every other day. He admires the knowledge on this forum and this is the last thing I wanted to do but I will do anything to keep from losing my husband, PLEASE HELP ME. My husband will be home from work after 4am (cali time) I am sure the first thing he will do is sign on to read you guys. If you could put up a note I could not express my gratitude, also if someone could erase this note by then that would help sooo much I wouldnt want him to suspect anything. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE HELP ME FROM LOSING MY HUSBAND

If he has heart disease then it may or may not be a good idea, but it doesnt sound like he does.

High blood pressure here too.
Not all steroids make your blood pressure rocket up. And for the ones that can (like tren ), you can compensate with medication (ACE inhibitors work for me).
I completely understand your concern as his wife. But understand that there are a lot of flat out lies, and even more misconceptions about steroids. So sit back and take a deep breath (no need for you to have high blood pressure too). Because unless there is some insidious underlying condition for his high blood pressure, odds are that things will be just fine.

As another note, I wouldn't just go breaking his bottles randomley. Im sure it makes you feel better because you think you are doing something good for him. You could in reality be breaking something that is of crucial importance of him during his cycle like his clomid, nolva, or test.

Your his wife, give him an ultimatum.

If she trusts her husband at all, then she should at least give him the benefit of the doubt and see if anyone else backs up what he's telling her.
I think an ultimatum should be an absolute last resort.

Buy your self a piece of mind go buy a $65 bp monitor. Use it daily. If its higher than 180/110thats severe hypertension. This in itself is a concern because it can lead to heart desease. The reason is to much pressure in the walls the heart works harder the tiny vessels swell leading to possible stroke. Having said that realize its normal for BP to shoot up evan much higher ie. during a workout. The key is does it stay there all the time. I agree work with him because the added stress is also contributing to raise bp. If he uses the steroids sensible watching his diet, limit sodium intake & fluids he should be fine... best wishes
