Oral steroids carry a much shorter half-life than the injectable steroids, therefore, daily use (sometimes spread out over the entire day in small doses) is adviced to receive the maximum benefit. There are many anabolic steroids that are available in both injectable and oral form, yet the user will notice far greater success from injectable steroids. One of the most common concerns of oral steroids is liver damage. Unlike their injectable cousins, oral steroids are notorious for possessing a toxic liver effect. However, alcohol is far more toxic to the liver than most any anabolic steroid. If you are not abusing your anabolic steroids, you’ll be okay. However, you should use oral steroids only for 6 to 8 weeks at a time.
