    Good article Rae-Anne.Finding a doctor who understands your sporting needs can be a trial.Trying to get them to understand that standard beta blockers are keeping you from getting fit you cannot reach your max HR so it wrecks any chance of working on a proper training programme.Also many anti colestrol drugs can cause major cramping and permanent damage to your muscles another thing you have to get across to the medical profession.

      Good point, Derek. My cardiologist has a lot of athletes as patients so it’s worth finding one who understands the demands we put on our heart and lungs, as well as the physiological effects of the medications (and whether or not they are banned).
