    I cant understand BWF rules. Dexamethasone is allowed during recovery but not during competition. This is a steroid approved by WHO as one of the essential medication. Inflammation is very dangerous, most doctors do is to treat the inflammation. LCW was in lot of pain.

    To bring down the inflammation Dexamethasone was used. Now why ban Dexa during Competition is non sensical.

    If two players were carrying some injury and are feeling pain and muscle sore in that they cant play their normal game I donT see how Dexa would give any advantage to them when they meet each other if both of them take Dexa to ease bring down the imflammation to bring down the pain.

    If LCW meets CL and LCW feels pain and take Dexa to bring down the pain, I dont see how Dexa could enhance LCW's power vis-a-vis CL other than LCW would not be feeling more pain on the injury. One must remember, Dexa only controls the inflammation but does not heal the injury. So LCW would still be playing with an underlying injury.

    ^ i'd surmise that wada/bwf doesn't want any athlete to be on any drugs that severely masks any dangerous type of pain during the competition period... in order to protect the athlete him/herself

    According to the article below, Dexamethasone is known to have been used as a masking agent for other banned and unblock steroids. Which in itself, is a good reason why it may be banned for use during competition:

    The following explains why glucocorticoids (such as Dexamethasone) are banned in sports.

    It is further explained by mindfields.

    Did you notice poor healing and accelerated healing were both mentioned in your quotes?

    People don't take dexamethasone for normal treatment of pain. No athlete would accept the side effects that you quoted;)

    Yes just notice.

    Maybe accelerated healing in the short run, but poor healing in the long run?

    To be honest, I didn't reply to mindfield's post because of being tired of explaining very simple things. His argument is very simplistic. However, very few sportsmen will take dexamethasone regularly once knowing that there are catabolic effects on the muscle - muscle wasting.

    Pain relief is simply not on the agenda. It would need big doses intravenously in the order of 0.1 to 0.15 mg/kg as a bolus dose administered less than 24hours beforehand. This dose can produce a feeling of vigor but that probably cannot last more than two days unless dexamethasone was given daily.

    It's a drug that I come across very often for medicinal treatments - hence fairly confident of the intricacies of using it.

    One fact I cant remember if stated was the levels of the drug in the urine. If very low, there is unlikely to be effects such as pain relief, vigor for that person.

    Well, looks like LCW is suing Razif (Misbun and Rashid's brother) over the allegations he has taken banned substance over a period of time.... this is going to be nasty.
