The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has reported an increasing number of positive tests involving Ostarine MK-2866, a popular brand of SARM, even though only illegal products carry it, and Ostarine is not currently available as a prescription medication in the U.S. or any other country. Many of these positive tests are likely due to supplement contamination, as manufacturers of these products have been accused of illegally adding Ostarine and other SARMs to their products. Some companies have even been caught omitting Ostarine from their products’ labeling entirely, and/or using misleading names to confuse consumers.

What are SARMs?
Selective androgen receptor modulators, or SARMs, are a relatively new class of androgen receptor ligands whose effects are similar to, though much more “selective” than, anabolic steroids. In theory, this allows SARMs to be used for a greater variety of purposes without the risk of serious side effects associated with traditional anabolic steroids.
SARM Brand Names
- MK-2866 or GTx-024 (Ostarine)
- LGD-4033 (Ligandrol)
- GSX-007 or S-4 (Andarine)
- GW-501516 (Cardarine)

FDA Seizes SARM Products Linked to Dr. Tony Huge
Federal authorities in December 2017 raided a facility in Sacramento, CA., owned by a company called Enhanced Athletes that sells SARMs linked to Charles Anthony Hughes, a former bankruptcy attorney turned meathead SARMs advocate who goes by the not-very-original moniker, “Dr. Tony Huge.” Yawn. The raid produced adulterated SARMs, raw materials, and hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of finished and unfinished products, according to Enhanced Athletes CEO Scott Cavell.
USADA Issues Warning on SARMs
In July 2017, the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) issued a supplement warning on Ostarina, a trademarked SARM that has not been approved for use in the U.S., after authorities noted a significant increase in positive doping test results for the supplement. Many of these positive tests are likely due to supplement contamination, according to Natural Products Insider, as manufacturers of these products have been accused of illegally adding Ostarine and other SARMs to their products.
SARMs Side Effects
Serious side effects of SARMs may include:
- Liver damage
- Cardiovascular complications
- Heart attack
- Blood clots
- Deep vein Thrombosis (DVT)
- Pulmonary Embolism (PE)
