This page is to help our athletes understand that competing CLEAN is the only way to compete.  Some drugs that athletes currently take could be banned substances on the WADA & USADA doping list.  Swimmers need to know if what they take / put into their bodies is approved for competition.  Swimmers can get certain medications approved by filing a TUE (Therapeutic Use Exemption) with the USADA.  It is the swimmers responsibility to know what is safe and approved.
