For average gymrats who never plan on stepping upon a bodybuilding state, Nandrolone may still be a perfect drug for you! You can enjoy its mass building effects in the off-season, and it’s effects upon muscle hardening when caloric restriction takes place. Remember that 99% of the people in a gym will never step on a competitive stage, so 99% of them don’t need to worry about drug testing. Likewise, if you plan on competing 2-3 years down the road once you’ve gained a great deal more mass and definition, then Nandrolone might be perfect for you. Just don’t play with the drug if you plan to be tested this year!
Fondaparinux should be used cautiously in geriatric patients, particularly in those 75 years of age and older. Renal clearance in this population is reduced by roughly 25% and accumulation of the unbound, active drug may lead to serious adverse events, including major bleeding. The risk of major bleeding increases with age. During clinical prophylaxis trials in patients with hip fracture, or hip or knee replacement surgery, major bleeding occurred in % of adult patients less than 65 years of age, in % of those 65—74 years, and in % of those 75 years of age and older. Similarly, during clinical prophylaxis trials with fondaparinux after abdominal surgery, major bleeding occurred in 3% (19/644) of patients less than 65 years of age, in % (16/507) of patients aged 65—74 years of age, and in 5% (14/282) of patients aged 75 years of age or older. In the DVT and PE treatment clinical trials, the risk of fondaparinux-associated major bleeding increased with age: % in patients less than 65 years of age, % of those 65—74 years, and % of those 75 years of age and older. Renal parameters should be assessed prior to use of fondaparinux in the elderly; in addition, careful attention to dosing directions and concomitant medications that affect hemostasis is advised. According to the Beers Criteria, fondaparinux should be avoided in geriatric patients with a creatinine clearance (CrCl) less than 30 mL/min due to an increased risk of bleeding.
