Preworkout Drink causing Itchiness?

  1. Preworkout Drink causing Itchiness?


    I've began taking Xpand Xtreme Pump, the preworkout NO drink. And I've noticed that within a few minutes of taking it that my skin becomes extremely itchy... Especially my face.

    Its extremely frustrating. I've taken several different preworkout drinks in my time and have never had anything happen like this until now.

    Has anybody felt this or know anything about this? Perhaps it's just an allergic reaction.

    Is it tingly/prickly? That would be caused by the Beta Alanine.

  3. or niacine..Is there niacine in it?

  4. It is very tingly and very prickly. I've used several NO products and never had this.

    But yes, its definitely not a "normal" tingly feeling.

    And yes it has 2.5g of Beta Alanine each serving. Should I discontinue use? I truthfully don't mind putting up with an itchy face during workouts if it means its a good product.

  5. The itchiness is normal. No problem

  6. Thanks people. I'm on my cell phone now so ill rep yall later.

    The itchiness didn't really phaze me till I was having a bad day and I wanted to absolutely rip my face off when I was on the way to the gym.

  7. try drinking more water - it helps a bit, though the tinglies were too much for me. man, i got them in my ears, and the bottom of my feet. argh!

    LMAO it freaked me out when I first took ba too. I had never read about that side. Its fine though nothing to worry about.

  9. I luv the tingling sensation!

  10. Fortunately for you it goes away with prolonged BA usage. I personally wish it didn't go away.

  12. It feels like a lightning bolt hit the tip of my penis.

    lol oh man thats not pleasant. if you take BetaAlanine with carbs that will take care of most of the tingling. eat a bowl of oats preworkout and take the supplement. I personally love the tingle, no lighting bolts here

    Really? I have been using BA for over a year and the tingle is as strong as ever for me, I love the feeling

  15. its just parasthesia from the ba... ur fine... feels awesome huh...

  16. I cannot stand the feeling. It feels like I have psoriasis or something on my face haha

  17. if it has beta-alanine thats the cause and its all normal some actually like it

    im telling you take it with carbs, bowl of oats. drink some water. taking it on an empty stomach will give extreme tingles

  19. U'll get used to it soon.. Erik loads of water drink it with a light meal usually a piece of bread is a good option

  20. i think the most intense "reaction" to BA i ever had was after dowing one of those single-serving preWO shots that AMS put out a while back...

    little green/white shooter... damn can't remember the name of it

  21. That makes sense. I workout alot on an empty stomach.

  22. Ingesting carbs along with Beta Alanine seems to diminish the paraesthesia. Google paraesthesia and you'll know exactly what's going on with the itchiness (caused by BA).

    I can't take any BA, even though it produces one of my favorite effects; namely, the potential to increase your lactate threshold. I get hyper-paraesthesia, to the point I can't focus or do anything other then wanting to remove my skin with a potato peeler.
