Not all drugs are banned in sport.
However, athletes must be careful when they choose the medication. It is the athletes‘ obligation not to use the prohibited substances, and athletes should take responsibility for all the results from what they ingest and use according to the WADA CODE.
A non-prescription medicine (commonly referred to as “over-the-counter”) might include prohibited substances. It is highly recommended that athletes consult with a pharmacist and double-check whether the medicine contains prohibited substances.
