Maria Sharapova was the highest earning woman athlete in the world when she was suspended in early 2016 for taking meldonium. Meldonium was not a banned drug until 2016 and Maria has been taking it on and off for 10 years. She was originally suspended for two years but on appeal the ban was reduced to 15 months and she returned to action in late April of 2017.

Anti-doping expert Don Catlin has publicly stated that there's zero evidence meldonium improves performance.
