drugs in the european peloton...

so obviously EPO is banned, blood doping is banned, etc
what type of drugs are used? i recall reading somewhere that some teams have an upwards of 150+ declared medications...aside from things such as (but not limited to) inhalers, hydrogen peroxide, and stuff that we'd normally use to treat simple things, what's being used? accelerade, endurox, etc don't count for an answer.

i'm just curious how much of the stuff is actually performance enhancing or what not....

I just read an article that Viagra increase blood flow to the lungs. It was a small study on hypoxia, but I would not be surprised to see that on the pro tour next year.
