Global DRO provides the prohibited status of medication brands and ingredients according to the current World Anti-Doping Agency’s Prohibited List.

Global DRO only provides brand information for medications available for purchase in Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, Switzerland, UK, and USA. 

Global DRO does NOT contain information on, or that applies to, any dietary supplement unless an ingredient on the label is known to be prohibited. The same applies to homeopathic products and other alternative medicines.

A dietary supplement may contain prohibited substances even if your search results for all individual ingredients state that the ingredients on the label are not prohibited or the ingredients are not contained in Global DRO. Dietary supplements may contain ingredients which are not listed on the ingredient label or may use alternate names for a prohibited ingredient which do not appear in Global DRO. The use of any dietary supplement is at your own risk.

If you can’t find your medication on Global DRO this does NOT mean your product is safe to take in sport. Contact us to find out if it is prohibited in sport.
