February 7, 2010
Many rules changes are in effect as of
January 1, 2010.
The 2010 Prohibited List is in effect now and may be found here: http://www.wada-ama.org/Documents/World_Anti-Doping_Program/WADP-Prohibited-list/WADA_Prohibited_List_2010_EN.pdf
USADA has created an Athlete Alert explaining the changes to the list: http://www.usada.org/files/active/athletes/2010%20Prohibited%20List%20Release%20Advisory%209.29.09.pdf
Please read the Alert carefully and note that pseudoephedrine has returned to the prohibited list. This impacts many over the counter cold medications that are commonly used. Athletes may not have this substance in their system during a competition.
All athletes must check the status of all medications (over the counter and prescription) with USADA at 1-800-233-0393 or online at www.globaldro.com <http://www.globaldro.com> .
