SARMs (Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators)

SARMs, which are chemical substances that mimic the effects of testosterone and anabolic steroids, are not FDA approved. Online vendors and social media influencers are using social media to make SARMs seem safe and effective.

The reality is SARMs are potentially dangerous. The FDA continues to receive adverse event reports associated with SARMS use. The real number of consumers experiencing adverse events is likely higher due to underreporting.  Because these are not approved drugs, consumers may be reluctant to report adverse events or may not be aware that they can report adverse events that they experience. In addition, they might not know that their symptoms are being caused by the product.

Studies and reports show SARMs are associated with serious or life-threatening health problems, such as:

  • Increased risk of heart attack or stroke
  • Psychosis/hallucinations    
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Sexual dysfunction 
  • Liver injury and acute liver failure 
  • Infertility
  • Pregnancy miscarriage
  • Testicular shrinkage
