Irish sportspeople can now check more easily that their medicines will not result in an anti-doping violation. The Irish Sports Council is pleased to announce the launch of an iPhone app which allow users to access the Eirpharm Drugs in Sport Database via their iPhone.

The World Anti-Doping Agency ( WADA) issues a List of Prohibited Substances and Methods that designates what is allowed in- and out-of-competition. The List also indicates whether particular substances are banned in certain sports. The app allows the user to check their prescribed and over-the-counter medications, purchased n Ireland, against the WADA Prohibited List.

The app allows the user to look up their medication by name or to search by ailment type. Useful features include the ability to email a search result to any email address, to save the search in the app History, and to re-check medications in saved history against current database listings.The iPhone app is available free of charge from the Apple iTunes Store by searching for the 'Irish Sports Council' or 'Medication Checker'.
