Corticosteroids have been used as drug treatment for some time. Lewis Sarett of Merck & Co. was the first to synthesize cortisone, using a complicated 36-step process that started with deoxycholic acid, which was extracted from ox bile . [43] The low efficiency of converting deoxycholic acid into cortisone led to a cost of US $200 per gram. Russell Marker , at Syntex , discovered a much cheaper and more convenient starting material, diosgenin from wild Mexican yams . His conversion of diosgenin into progesterone by a four-step process now known as Marker degradation was an important step in mass production of all steroidal hormones, including cortisone and chemicals used in hormonal contraception . [44] In 1952, . Peterson and . Murray of Upjohn developed a process that used Rhizopus mold to oxidize progesterone into a compound that was readily converted to cortisone. [45] The ability to cheaply synthesize large quantities of cortisone from the diosgenin in yams resulted in a rapid drop in price to US $6 per gram, falling to $ per gram by 1980. Percy Julian's research also aided progress in the field. [46] The exact nature of cortisone's anti-inflammatory action remained a mystery for years after, however, until the leukocyte adhesion cascade and the role of phospholipase A2 in the production of prostaglandins and leukotrienes was fully understood in the early 1980s.

I've been on 20mg patches since January this year due to disc prolapse and nerve compression. I was in heaven, no pain at all. I had my spine op in April and after that reduced the dose to 10 mg, was on it for a week and Dr didn't say a thing I decided to stop it. Nightmare, 5 days without sleep, very restless, with reflux, anxious, sweating cold... Went back to the Dr and she prescribed me the 5mg patches, omeprazole and diazepam to sleep. I was as new again. After the 7 days course I decided to withdraw and did it 4 days ago. No sleep since then and all symptoms are back, I feel like scratching my chest a scream at night as can't sleep. I'm nearly putting the patch back for one more week but tomorrow I will ask my gp to prescribe me something to easy the symptoms. I was even researching detox clinics as it's being so hard doing it on my own.
How are you getting on now after all those years? I found this as can't sleep and it's sad but it's good to know that this is a common symptom.

The most commonly used AAS in medicine are testosterone and its various esters (but most commonly testosterone undecanoate , testosterone enanthate , testosterone cypionate , and testosterone propionate ), [53] nandrolone esters (most commonly nandrolone decanoate and nandrolone phenylpropionate ), stanozolol , and metandienone (methandrostenolone). [1] Others also available and used commonly but to a lesser extent include methyltestosterone , oxandrolone , mesterolone , and oxymetholone , as well as drostanolone propionate , metenolone (methylandrostenolone), and fluoxymesterone . [1] Dihydrotestosterone (DHT; androstanolone, stanolone) and its esters are also notable, although they are not widely used in medicine. [54] Boldenone undecylenate and trenbolone acetate are used in veterinary medicine . [1]
