After taking AD, did your body changed?


Recommended Posts



My friend has been on a mood stabilizer since he was 18 and is in the tapering process. He has gained some weight and his hair has fallen a little (he is otherwise a very hairy dude), and we were wondering if after he finish his tapering will he have his old body back (lean and hairy)?


I would like to know of your experiences as he was fairly young when he started this evil drug (he is now 33), and we don't know if the body could bounce back or even completely change after the tapering (maybe changes in bone growth and muscle mass?).
