It was falsely reported today (8/22) in the NYT by George Vecsey that capsaicin is a "mild stimulant." It's not. It's a straight painkiller (check the neurochemistry) and is available over the counter at local pharmacies in the States. I didn't find it on the 2008 WADA Prohibited Substances list either (I've been using it for years against illiotibial band syndrome). With horses, I read that in addition to the simple painkilling effect, it makes them hypersensitive to possible injury, i.e., more cautious on jumps. That's why it's banned in equestrian events.
