Drug testing has become a very important part of an athlete's life. Consequently, the use of drugs for medicinal purposes is becoming a problem as some of the ingredients in these drugs are banned substances. For example, Panadol Multisymptom cannot be taken as it contains banned decongestion components. This will affect even high-school athletes. Drug testing was carried out on some high-school athletes at the 2014 Gibson Relays and, as of 2015, ISSA is going to introduce drug tests.
