In the light of recent negative publicity about performance enhancing drug use in athletics, this is a list of available online Anti-Doping resources:
Follow the links and read all of the available information. It is the duty of all Coaches and Athletes to be aware of the risks associated with taking supplements, and also how medication, particularly non-prescription, over the counter medication can pose additional risks to your Athletics career.
There is a link to the form that you must submit if your prescribed medication is on the prohibited list. Don’t worry if you do get prescribed something on the list, if there is no alternative, and you need it, that should not be an issue as long as you have informed the WADA you will be OK. Asthmatics need to be aware in particular.
