Roid Rage : Common Steroid User Problem
When people use anabolic steroids, a dangerous practice for many reasons, they are essentially placing extra levels of testosterone in their bodies. This hormone can at first have positive effects on the psyche, which later turn negative. Steroid users at first may acquaint steroid use with feeling well, unconquerable or very happy. Continued use of steroids may result in much greater mood and behavior change. People may become more aggressive, more hostile, or they may manifest symptoms of various forms of mental illness, like schizophrenia, mania, and deep depression. Anabolic steroid use is linked not only to roid rage and sudden mood changes, but also to a higher incidence of suicide than in the general populace.
Could anabolic steroids account for severely violent acts?
Yes. It's been implicated in a number of murders and can result in extreme aberrations of behavior including the taking of one's life.
Another thing you have to be mindful of -- it may unmask an underlying psychiatric disorder that has been basically kept in check until the individual is exposed to this category of drugs. And so what you may be seeing is unmasked psychiatric disorder.
There is a problem with steroids and rage. Overtraining causes all these steroid symptoms like irritation, sleeping problems, sweating, nervousness, and so on. This is found in hard training athletes like marathon runners, water polo players, and cross country skiers who do not use steroids. As we all know, it is a lot harder to overtrain once doing cardio exercises than weight lifting. So, someone takes steroids and starts training way too much and maybe even dieting . It isn't too hard to figure out the effects of such overtraining.
