Anti-doping: 2017 Guide for Prescribers

The World Anti-Doping Code, published by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), harmonises anti-doping regulations across all sports and in all countries. This Code includes a list of substances and methods which are prohibited in sport. Some of these substances are contained in medicinal products marketed in Ireland.

However, in recognition of the fact that some prohibited substances may be necessary for legitimate medical treatment, the code permits athletes and their physicians to apply for a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE).

Eirpharm has developed a prescriber's guide that can help you manage most used substances. See Prescriber's Guide for the full article.
