As of 1st January 2004 some of the substances previously banned in sport have been moved to a 'monitoring' list and are no longer banned. This includes some products containing things like caffeine and phenylephrine. All you Lemsip lovers out there can breathe easily at last!
As always, read the label carefully and please check if in doubt.
For more information and a searchable database see the UK Sport web site.
