Question: Will the supplement Andro show up as steroids in a med exam?


 KODIAK0078 - Sun Feb 13, 2005 8:17 pm

I have to have a full medical exam as part of the selection process for a career I am entering. I lift weights and am taking a form of andro called Methyl-1, 4AD Test (aka "T1"). Its ingredients are:
17-alpha-methyl-1-testosterone 10mg
17-alpha-methyl-4-androstene-3,
17 beta diol 20mg
Other: Maltodextrin, and Magnesium Sterate

Will this potent andro show up as steroids? Also, approx how long will this take to leave my system if I have to stop taking it?

Thank you

User avatar Hi KODIAK0078,
According to the typical drug detection/clearance times charts that I'm aware of:
Anabolic Steroids minimum clearance time is 4-6 hours and maximum clearance times for oral usage is 2-3 weeks. It is my understanding that complete abstinence of the drug is required from the start of the "minimum" to the end of the "maximum" detection period to completely clear the users system.
Sincerely,
Rntdj
