Roid rage a term which is commonly misused and which also has a lot of distorted views from the general public. Although roid rage does in fact exist, which anyone that has been around AAS for a long time will tell you, it is not that common among the general steroid user. The majority of anabolic steroid users will never experience roid rage. The points below will try explain the cuase of roid rage and also differentiate between roid rage and increased aggression as these are two very different things..
What is “Roid Rage”?
Roid rage is a phrase hat is commonly associated with anabolic steroid use to infer violent aggressive behavior associated with the hormonal drugs. Generally this is usually seen as random outbursts of anger or violence far beyond what would be deemed appropriate to that particular situation. Situations which although irritating to a non-anabolic steroid user can sometimes irritate one who uses anabolics to a far greater degree, resulting in hostility or violent behavior or simply just a loud outburst while the user blows off some steam. With nearly all cases of roid rage, immediately after the outburst the individual will experience what we call a “Crash” and will quicky revert back to a more subdued persona.
So obviously it would not be fun being around someone that is using anabolic steroids and experiencing roid rage. Nobody loud adults that have tantrums and that is an easy way to describe the behaviour of these individuals. But also general steroid users cannot be labeled as having roid rage as 95% of anabolic steroid users will never experience roid rage or anything remotely resembling roid rage.
Another note is the type of products used and the users experience. Some novice steroid users may be overwhelmed if taking certain products without seeing what the effects of each are first. Products like Halotestin which is a pure strength gainer works from the increased aggression it causes, some users may underestimate the effects of halo prior to its use. Testosterone blends such as sustanon will constantly increase testosterone levels during a steroid cycle which may become too much for some users, hence why sustanon is only recommended for experienced steroid users and not beginners. Trenbolone is also commonly known to increase aggression.
Roid rage is a term given to people who act in very aggressive or hostile manner after taking large doses, usually on a regular basis, of anabolic steroids, sometimes nicknamed as roids. In recent times, several prominent murders and brutal attacks have been linked to roid rage, which might suggest a person is less responsible for committing a crime. This is not always an adequate defense given that people who take anabolic steroids tend to do so willingly. Further, roid rage resulting in violent behavior may be a little more complex than it is generally portrayed in the media.
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 equate 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.
There have been several clinical studies assessing roid rage, and it does turn out that people who are most likely to experience it are also most likely, prior to steroid use, to be extremely angry, hostile or violent. This suggests that roid rage may most occur in those who are already at risk for violent behavior. These studies further suggest that roid rage is not a suitable legal defense for committing violent acts, since the person who claims it as a defense may have already had tendencies toward violence. These tendencies or violent acts can further be a side effect of ending steroid use, since the mood elevation properties of steroids when suddenly cut off could result in acting in a violent manner. Long-term users of steroids should be carefully watched and helped medically to recover from what might be termed steroid addiction.
Despite clinical studies, any steroid user is risking the potentially dangerous effects of extreme behavior changes when taking steroids. Some people may be so vulnerable that behavior changes occur rapidly, causing the person to behave in a manner illegal or so disruptive that it can quickly ruin a life. What is clear is that anabolic steroid use is a dangerous practice with many potential long-term side effects that can be life changing. Like many other drugs, anabolic steroids are dangerous indeed, and the potential for roid rage adds the additional risk of a person hurting himself or others by extremely violent behavior while on steroids.
