"Medications are prescribed for a wide range of reasons and they may be prescribed for conditions that seem unrelated to performance-enhancement. But even if a medication is prescribed for a diagnosed medical condition, such as acne or fertility, that's seemingly unrelated to athletic performance, athletes subject to anti-doping rules must always check the prohibited status of medications. Medications may have other uses or effects that athletes don't know about that do pertain to sport performance."
