It is commen healthcare products like coughserup, painkillers or rashcreams etc. you have to be most carefull about. Always check what's in them before you take them and ask a sports doctor when in doubt. If you really need certain medicines make sure you have a doctors attest for them.

Substances will vary per nation so I'd suggest you refer ot the body you ride under.

In Aust we have ASDA and their web site includes info about which medications are banned and which are acceptable for competition use.
