In July, the NCAA released their banned drugs list for the 2018-2019 school year. The Banned Drug Classes are:
2. Anabolic Agents
3. Alcohol and Beta Blockers (Banned for Rifle Only)
4. Diuretics and other Masking Agents
5. Illicit Drugs
6. Peptide Hormones and Analogues
8. Beta-2 Agonists
Note: Any substance that is chemically related to these classes is also BANNED.
Drugs and Procedures Subject to Restrictions:
1. Blood and Gene Doping
2. Local Anesthetics
3. Manipulation of Urine Samples
4. Beta-2 Agonists permitted only by prescription and inhalation
The NCAA notes that there is no complete list of Banned Substances. Any substance that is chemically related to a Class, even if it is not listed as an example, is also BANNED.
The NCAA advises that it is the Student Athletes responsibility to check with the appropriate Athletic Staff before using any substance, including nutritional/dietary supplements. Dietary Supplements are not well regulated and may cause a positive drug test result. Student Athletes have tested positive and lost their eligibility using dietary supplements. The NCAA suggests that many dietary supplement products are contaminated with Banned Drugs not listed on the label.
