Dianabol and Drug Screening

If there were to be a drug screen conducted randomly for say employees in a workplaces, how long would dianabol stay in ones system roughly? I am guessing drug tests in work places would be for recreational drugs/alcohol and not anabolic steroids, But I am just curious about how long something like dianabol would be detectable in a urine test, if it even is detectable.

Although I’m not on steroids and really have no business posting in this thread, I was once told by a friend who has been on steroids for many years and knows a lot about them said DBOL stays in your system for 12 hours.

Dbol’s half life is up to about 4.5 hours.

You are correct though, it is very unlikely that you are being tested for AAS in the workplace. It is very expensive to do AAS screening.

The short half-life of dianabol refers only to its androgenic/anabolic metabolites. Other breakdown metabolites of dianabol will stay in your system far longer. The actual time dianabol is detectable in the system will be very individual and depend n numerous factors such as fluid intake. I would estimate the time frame for clearance of all detectable metabolites to be between 10 and 17 days

Good point, Cymru. I don’t know what I was thinking. It is detectable for maybe up to six weeks according to many sources.

they WONT test u for AAS. Be more weary towards marijuana, opiates and coke.

Thank you everybody for sharing your knowledge!
