NCAA Banned-Drug Classes: 2007-2008
The NCAA list of banned-drug classes is subject to change by the NCAA
Executive Committee. Contact NCAA education services or
www.ncaa.org/health-safety for the current list. The term “related compounds”
comprises substances that are included in the class by their pharmacological
action and/or chemical structure. No substance belonging to the prohibited
class may be used, regardless of whether it is specifically listed as an
Many nutritional/dietary supplements contain NCAA banned
substances. In addition, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not
strictly regulate the supplement industry; therefore purity and safety of nutritional
dietary supplements cannot be guaranteed. Impure supplements may lead to a
positive NCAA drug test. The use of supplements is at the student-athlete’s own
risk. Student-athletes should contact their institution’s team physician or athletic
trainer for further information.
