    Ergogenic aids - illegal: narcotics - analgesics Narcotics - analgesics There are many different types - codeine, morphine, and heroin (opiates) are just a few examples. The immediate effects are euphoria, which is a feeling of well-being. They briefly stimulate the higher centres of the brain, and then depress the activity of the nervous system, which causes relief of pain. They are primarily used in sports where injury is common. It allows an athlete to remain competing while injured, in an euphoric state. These drugs are highly addictive and the risk of respiratory failure is high. Narcotic analgesics are very strong pain killers and are a banned substance, however, there are analgesics like codeine which are a regulated substance and are actually allowed for use up to a certain level in their system. Caffeine is also a regulated substance and athletes must have 12mg/litre in the urine before a positive reading is indicated. This would be the equivalent of 6-8 cups of coffee in a short period of time. Dangers of misuse and side effects include: constipation and low blood pressure they are addictive (even codeine) the withdrawal symptoms can be very unpleasant pain is a warning signal. Suppressing it can lead to further injury.
