Determine Medication Status
Research the medication to determine whether or not it is prohibited. The best way to do this is by using UFC Global DRO. USADA also makes available an Athlete Express email address and a Drug Reference Phone Line, staffed by experts during business hours to help athletes understand prohibited substances.
If your substance is not prohibited, no Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) is required and no further action is needed.
If your substance is prohibited either in- and/or out-of-competition, continue to Step 2.
