"The Clear", or tetrahydrogestrinone, is an anabolic steroid developed by Patrick Arnold and distributed by BALCO. It is often taken in conjunction with "The Cream", which is also distributed by BALCO, to mask the steroid from doping tests. It is often taken as a number of liquid drops, taken under the tongue where it will be absorbed into the body.
Side effects from taking the clear for prolonged periods will result in infertility, acne and hirsutism. Unlike other anabolic steroids, another side effect may be immunosuppression.
