Selective Androgen Receptor Modules

Thank you

Military drug tests would not detect these substances.

They would need to be sent to a specialized laboratory to test urine for such substances.

Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.

Do you know if the military steroids test includes SARMs?
Military Lawyer: P. Simmons, Military Lawyer replied 11 months ago

If they are controlled (meaning they are listed on the federal controlled substances list? Then yes...the various labs that DoD contracts with to perform anabolic steroid testing will test for them.

IF they are not controlled (not on the federal controlled substance list)? Then they are not tested for

So it will depend on if they are scheduled (on the controlled substance list).

Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.
