Um, Than, the NSAID's are NON-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs ie) ibuprofen and cousins.

If they are the prescription steroidal anti-inflammatories, they are not anabolic steroids, but cortico-steroids. Take 'em all you want, but you won't pack on muscle. Take 'em long term, though, and you might develop diabetes, osteoporosis, adrenal gland failure, fluid retention...lots of fun stuff. A short burst and taper usually fine.

On a side note, Razor lifted weights next to Ferigno not all that long ago...just happened to be at his gym w/out his hulking green make-up.

These are in fact, presciptions SAIDs, and they are indeed cortico-steroids, prescribed after some dental surgery to make sure the gums don't swell up and prevent proper re-adherence to the repaired bone. Apparently swelling is by far the biggest concern -- they had me icing, taking Ibuprofen, AND on this tapered does of cortico-steriods.

 

But that still ends in "roids"!!!!!!!

 

Henceforth I shall blame all temper tantrums on Roid Rage. :)
