Masking agents are drugs such as probenecid, or simply taking epitestosterone which help fix the ratio's of testosterone to epitestosterone to normal endogenous levels. Not sure where this whole "Adderall masks steroids" deal came from.
Adderall provides a convenient excuse for steroid use in leagues such as the NFL where the actual results of the drug test cannot be revealed....so the player can claim they got busted for X, even if they got busted for Y and nobody will come after them to correct their statement.
If you get busted because you were injecting Test E, you don't want to come out and admit to that and get "McGwire'D".....you're going to say you took Adderall....because in our society, amphetamines are far more commonly accepted than steroids.
