Halep’s former medical advisor reveals 2 pills Simona took daily

Dana Safta, Simona Halep’s former medical advisor, reacted after the doping scandal involving the 31-year-old athlete emerged. According to Romanian publication ProSport, Simona Halep gave up the services of Dana Safta, ENT doctor and doctor of medical sciences, not long before US Open, where Halep tested positive, started.

“Simone’s brother told me that, over the course of 6 years, Simona took 106 anti-doping tests. On September 21, she took another test in Romania, which came out negative. On October 7, she was given another test, also negative.

I have Simona’s consent to reveal to you that she was taking Euthyrox 50mcg daily and a contraceptive pill. The nose operation went wonderfully. If she had taken Roxadustat she would have been in danger of thrombosis. I asked Simona what she was doing with the water bottles in the dressing room.

She said she always closes them and puts them in her bag. This is not put in any bunk, but neither could someone do something like that… put something in her bottle”, Dana Safta told CNN’s Antena 3.

Safta cannot accept Simona swallowed Roxadustat

“I’ve known Simona for a few years, our relationship was doctor-patient 8-9 years ago and from there was built a friendship, a soul relationship, and medical counseling, which of course I did because she trusted me and I was correct in what I needed to do for her medically and afterward of course helping her overcome her emotional state with confidence and everything I could give her as moral support,” said Dana Safta.

“I certainly cannot accept for a moment the idea that Simona knowingly swallowed Roxadustat. It is not possible. Knowing her so well and knowing first of all how she takes care of her body and every time the desire and when she had a prescription in a trivial virus, we judged her prescription according to what the Antidoping list allowed us.”
