It is vitally important that all players subject to drug testing check the status of any medications they take. 

Some medications for common medical conditions, such as cold/flu, asthma or hay fever, may contain a prohibited substance. Players should remember to check medications carefully before using them, regardless of how familiar they are with the product. The danger of ingesting a prohibited substance through seemingly innocent medication is not worth the risk.

Players, clubs, coaches, and support staff can check the status of licensed medication or constituant ingredient using the Global DRO website

Please note that Global DRO cannot provide information on the status of any supplements. See the supplements section of for further detail.  

Remember – ignorance is not an excuse or a defence.
