Many medications available for common medical conditions, such as asthma or hayfever, may contain prohibited substances. You need to be aware that these are readily available in products prescribed by your doctor or bought over the counter in a pharmacy.
The advice from UK Anti-Doping is simple – check every single substance or medication before you use it, even if you have used it before.
It is also important to remember that medications bought abroad may contain different substances than those in the UK and you should always check before you take them.
Global DRO provides athletes and support personnel with information about the prohibited status of specific substances under the rules of sport based on the current World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Prohibited List, for products sold in the United Kingdom, Canada, Japan, United States, Switzerland and Australia.
The system has the ability to check the status of branded medications and individual active ingredients as well as providing every search with a unique reference number for your records.
A new mobile-enhanced version of Global DRO is now available enabling athletes to check their medicines while on the move.
If you can’t find what you are looking for then you can send an enquiry to UK Anti-Doping directly from the Global DRO website.
Global DRO is used for checking meds purchased in the UK, USA, Canada, Japan, Australia and Switzerland only
