Note from the USA Powerlifting TUE Chair Dr. Kris Hunt (12/2016):
With the recent doping failures, the TUE committee will be making more regular announcements regarding Therapeutic Use Exemptions (TUE).
Any medication that you are on should be cross-checked (by YOU) on the database: GlobalDro.com
If you have a medication that is prescribed that appears on this list, you need to file for a TUE.
TUE’s need to be received NO LATER than 6 weeks prior to your intended competition. It is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY and YOURS ALONE to ensure the proper paperwork is submitted on time.
A couple of items worth mentioning:
1. Testosterone or any derivatives thereof will not be approved by historical precedent in our organization.
2. We are having mountains of TUE requests for Adderall or similar stimulants for ADHD. For those of you that are not aware, many medications used for the treatment of ADHD are amphetamines. If abused, they can enhance performance. We are not going to question your diagnosis of ADHD; however, we are now asking for more substantive information regarding your diagnosis. A letter from your doctor stating, “she/he has a hard time concentrating at work/school” will not suffice. We are now requiring formal ADHD testing via a primary care provider or psychiatrist. This is to ensure the integrity of the sport, as Adderall is now being abused in epidemic proportions, with and without a physician’s prescription.
