They also examined herbal supplements and non-steroid hormones commonly abused with steroids (e.g., human growth hormone, insulin-like growth factor, thyroid hormone, and levothyroxine). For each site, the investigators evaluated the selection of products, purchasing process, and accompanying directions for use.
According to results published online in the American Journal of Men’s Health, 87% of the top 10 direct-to-consumer websites
sold commonly used forms of anabolic steroids, injectable testosterone, and hormone therapies. In addition, 75% of websites sold at
least 1 post-cycle recovery agent (e.g., gonadotropins, serum estrogen receptor modulators, and aromatase inhibitors),
and 62% sold 1 or more erectile dysfunction medications. Most steroid users “stack” multiple agents at high dosages,
then “cycle” with recovery agents to minimize toxicity, according to other research cited in the study.
No website required a prescription for purchase of any substance, and 75% accepted common forms of payment including credit card.
Online vendors provided direct shipping to home addresses and shunted all legal responsibility to the consumer through disclaimers.
