No: Hi. No, neither epinephrine nor vasopressin are n any toxicology panels. A medical examiner would have to suspect a role for either epinephrine or vasopressin in the cause of death, and specifically request these tests. Neither compound is very stable, but with proper sample storage, they couple probably be reliably test for.
