    Unhappy Dialene 4, WTF is happening!?


    I finally took my sample of D4. I used as directed 30 min b4 bfast and now my ENTIRE body is covered in a red rash that itches and feels warm/hot sensation like razor burn! WTF!

    Any else experience this?

    I only took one dose of 3 pills like it said. I have never had a reaction like to oral pills on 1 dose. I figure it has to be the Cayenne pepper, but get this I have used Cayenne pepper powder in a topical (lipoderm spike) and I didn't have a reaction at all and that goes directly on the skin.

    experiences? explainations?

    I've never taken it, but I'll bet its a niacin flush that your getting. If it is, it should go away in 20-30 minutes. I got a helluva niacin flush this morning when I took my first dose of Poseidon.

    Dialene 4 Ingredients

    B Vitamins
    Vitamin B3 (Niacinimide USP): 75mg
    Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine HCl): 50mg
    Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid): 25mg
    Vitamin B12 (Methylcobalamin): 100mcg
    The B vitamins are essential to whole body metabolism, especially fat loss. We included the B vitamins in Dialene 4 to ensure your body has what it needs to burn fat at its full potential.

    Yep..sounds like niacin. If it doesn't go away in 20-30 minutes then it's something else.

    It lasted a little over 2 hours. I think your right, I read up on what a niacin flush is and sure seems like it. If I did purchase D4, would this happen all the time I dose?

    If it would no way I am taking it again. I would look like I have some horrid condition and that's not good to have when I work with the public. Plus it is VERY unfomfortable, you should have a WARNING on the bottle!

    I would only get it the first dose of the day if I didn't eat within about 30 minutes or so. My ears get real red and I got splotches on my face, but they subside quickly.

    Most people get used to niacin flush and it diminishes with use. However, you appear unusually succeptable. Start lower dose and build-up.

    The first time I took it it scared the **** out of me to. I only took 2 but Im also at 250lbs so I thought no big deal. And after 30 mins my feet started tingling and then I started to feel real hot and looked in the rear view mirror and it looked like I was severly sunburned. So I paniced and stopped at a gas station when I walked in everyone was staring at me. I got in the bathroom and thought I was having an allergic reaction. So I left there and got a subway sandwich and after about 20 mins the feeling started to die off. I never crashed and could think the energy rush I got after taking it could have been more panic than the actuall ingrediants. I have taken it several times since then but not on a consistant basis and dread taking it on an empty stomach because I start having a flashback of the first time I took it.

    I've taken 2 scoops of Blast with 2 scoops of Poseidon (and 3 more grams of BA).

    A little flushing once, helluva lot the 2nd time, and nothing on the third time.

    Though - that much BA makes me feel weird - like I want to throw up initially then I feel really tired.

    It is always best to start with a lower dose and access your tolerance to the product.

    To avoid a niacin flush, just take aspirin 30 minutes before you take your pills. The flush is caused by increased prostaglandins and aspirin blocks prostaglandin synthesis.
