Medications & Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE)

Medications & Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE)

Many medications contain substances which are prohibited in sport. Any athlete who is sick or injured needs to carefully consider the medications they take to ensure they avoid prohibited substances.

To check whether a medication is permitted in sport, please visit the Medication Check page on the DFSNZ website or request a copy of DFSNZ’s wallet guide on the status of common medications.

Athletes can apply for a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) if they need to take medication which is prohibited in sport. If athletes compete at a top level, they may need to apply for a TUE before they take medication which contains a prohibited substance. Visit the TUE page on the DFSNZ website for more information.
