Are you an athlete who has fallen ill and do not know which of your pharmaceuticals is unobjectionable according to the anti-doping rules? Or whether you might need a Therapeutic Use Exemption before using your medication? Or are you a team physician or general practitioner treating a competitive athlete and need advice on the correct treatment? You might also be a pharmacist who is approached by a sick athlete seeking competent counsel and information. The following pages provide helpful hints and explain prohibited substances and methods. Explanation is also provided for when an athlete needs a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) for his or her medication and how to successfully apply for a TUE to receive the NADA's approval.
