SAIDS Med­i­ca­tion Check

Bicycling (South Africa) - - Gear Of The Year -

Are you drugfree? Most of the time, most of us don’t worry too much about the med­i­ca­tion we take. Or if we do, then we rely on how-to ad­vice from a med­i­cal pro­fes­sional. This isn't al­ways prac­ti­cal, es­pe­cially when you’re wan­der­ing down the aisle of a phar­macy with snot seep­ing out of your pores. Drug Free Sport SA (SAIDS) have cre­ated a help­ful app that can cross­ref­er­ence over 3 000 listed med­i­ca­tions. The list is in line with the Medicine Con­trol Coun­cil of SA, and up­dated against WADA's pro­hib­ited sub­stances list. Searches can be fil­tered ac­cord­ing to dif­fer­ent sub­stances and sport­ing codes. Search­ing is easy – just en­ter a med­i­ca­tion name, and the re­sults will in­stantly show you if the med­i­ca­tion con­tains any banned sub­stances. The app can be in­stalled by cre­at­ing a short­cut on your screen to the SAIDS med­i­ca­tion app on their site.
