ProHormones and drug testing...

This may be a stupid question, but keep in mind Iv'e been out of this for years and just coming back into it. I am going into the Police Department and I'm not sure if ProHormes will help or hinder me. Do these show up on drug tests? Some have told me not to kid myself this stuff is like a drug, but some of my cop buddies told me if its sold OTC its ok to use. I know lots of cops who juice as well, but I dont want any problems. So bottom line, does this stuff show up in tests?

Thanks!!

    I know when I went thru testing in Corrections, even OTC substances would show up as a potential drug. Your best bet in all honestly if you are going for a test is simply not to be on anything that you don't need for medical reasons. There's some allergy medicines that show up as speed. Now that has to suck. I'm not sure of the procedure but if you go thru the packets of into they give you on the drug screening, a lot of times it will list what is acceptable.

    When in doubt, don't do it.

    I'm going to guess that a prohormone will show up as nothing. But it might show up as something in a pee test.

    I'm no DR. so I really don't know. I have just always followed the take the test as clean as possible and then.. after you are in it's much easier. You don't need the hassle of getting bumped out for some OTC substance that some drug lab shows as whatever.

    From what I've been told, and by no means should you consider me a credible source, the cheapest drug tests (the one most likely to be used) only test for pot and coke. Testing for steroids is very expensive, and only done if there is already a suspicion. Testosterone levels are measured and then compared to levels from a group of people within a similar demographic to see if it is considerably higher.

    Prohormones will not show up on standard drug tests such as employment tests. Some prohormones will cause positives on tests for anabolic steroids, and many will cause positives on drug tests by athletic organizations that specifically ban prohormones. The ones that are most likely to lead to a positive test are precursors to illegal anabolic steroids such as 1,4-andro, 19-nordiol, 4-AD, DHT precursors, and the methylated versions of any of these. Methyl-1-testosterone, 1-AD, and 1-testosterone are unlikely to show up on a drug test.

    How long do prohormones stay in the system?

    It depends on the substance. Most prohormones, such as 1-AD/1-test and 4-AD, will probably only be detectable for 3-4 days. However, some, such as 19-nordiol, may be detectable for months. It is a good idea to cease use of any prohormone/steroid at least a month prior to the test to be on the safe side.

    anything that raise your TESTOSTERONE level will be detectable. If he cannot detect the substance it will detect an anormal Test Level .....

    Honestly, it is RARE that employers will pay the big money for the piss tests that actually test for steroids.
    Almost always they are just looking for opiates and stuff like that. If you are using anything OTC you should be fine.

    Freaking sucks. I have many buds  who are LEO's including my brother in law who use gear and have never had any problems. Then again they were not, at least to my knowledge, using gear the day of their piss test.
