Though many people use anti-inflammatories like ibuprofen for a headache, they don't come without side effects, and some people aren't supposed to take these drugs. Ibuprofen puts people at risk of bleeds in the gastrointestinal tract and kidney damage. Using the drug in high doses also seems to raise blood pressure and increase the risk of heart attack and stroke — one reason the FDA recently warned that people should only use ibuprofen (and other "nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs," NSAIDS, like naproxen) for short periods of time and in small amounts. Yet ibuprofen (as well as naproxen) has been found in a number of supplements.
Anyone who experiences side effects after taking Anabolic Xtreme should refrain from taking additional doses of the supplement and must contact their physician. Side effects of Anabolic Xtreme might be an indication of underlying health problems, and a physician might need to conduct a blood pressure check and monitor the individual to make sure the cardiovascular system and nervous system are in good health. Discontinuing use of anabolic steroids might cause severe withdrawal symptoms including suicidal behavior, acute psychosis and severe mood changes. Anabolic Xtreme has not been reviewed or approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration, so the short-term and long-term side effects of taking the supplement are still unknown.
