    So, these can be injected? (I remember reading of something simular a WHILE ago, but it seemed the guy talking about it in the thread had a few consistancy issues).
    I understand these can get into the bloodstream orally, but, amount of active aside (meaning, orally, you might have to take more) is there ANY bennifit or truth to the anabolism here via injection that can't be obtainied orally?

    Beta-2 Adrenergic Agonists

    When inhaled, beta-2 agonists relax the smooth muscle in the airways of asthma patients by mimicking the actions of epinephrine and norepinephrine, substances that are secreted by sympathetic nerves. However when injected into the bloodstream, these drugs can build muscle mass (anabolic effect) and reduce body fat (catabolic effect). The anabolic effect appears to directly affect building proteins in the muscles, which is independent of nervous or cardiovascular effects. Some examples of beta-2 agonists include:

    Clenbuterol
    Tertbutaline
    Salbutamol
    Fenoterol
    Bambuterol
    Some of these substances are permitted in inhaler forms with written medical consent.
