    Swim been using long acting steroids for a cycle recently. Testosterone and some other things. He may be taking a drug test soon for a new civil service job, that he wants bad. It's a great job. What are the chances of being tested for steroids as well as the normal recrational drugs that people are tested for normally with job screenings??

    I's almost posative they don't test for steroids, at least in the
    normal NIDA 5. But as for the testosterone (and the others if
    they're naturally produced by the body too) I don't think they'd ever
    be able to test for whether they were artificially introduced into the
    body or not.

    i would be careful though, if they will change your cretine levels, and other such levels that they test to make sure u have a valid piss, such as pH and others. As long as your piss isnt odd colored, or different then normal piss no flags should come up.

    I agree. Most drug tests cover cocaine, weed, etc. I believe the cost to check for steroids is much higher than the standard tests. Hence, they are not done that often.

    Speaking of this, does anyone know the effect of creatine supplementation on drug tests. I know that drug testors check creatine levels to see if its valid piss, and swim currently supplements with creatine for weightlifting and hate to see him fail his employment test not because of drugs, but because of innocous creatine.
