    Just out of curiosity, did the congestion start after taking said supps? Rauwolscine gave me some nasal congestion for the first few days after I started taking it

    No I just have a nasty cold and was going to take some sudafed to help clear out my nose but didn't know the effects of doing so while on my supps.

    If it has ephedrine be careful of combining it with other stims.

    Gotchya. Well I don't know anything about the possible interactions so I'm not much help here.. I will say however that I have taken congestion meds while on AT2 (old) and Alphaburn with no problem, but I would probably wait for someone more knowledgeable to give you the green light

    A few weeks ago had bad cold. Was mixing 2 different cold meds together, using afrin at night & took craze before a good solid workout. 2 days later, had heart palpitations & had a trip to emergency room. Had to get heart zapped back into rhythm. Learned a solid lesson after that. Be careful what your mixing....

    Scary. I'm not taking any atoms really, I guess Alpha T2 is a mild stim bit I don't notice much stim results from it. My pre workout is non stim as well, white flood and hemavol. I just know from past experience if I don't dry up my nasal cavities I'm more incline get a sinus infection which will put me back even longer.

    Yeah, i think when it comes to stims, ya have to watch what your doin. I dont think erase or erase pro would give you any problems with a decongestant. But ya might wanna do some research on any supp' s your taking. Just to be safe.

    I have taken vicodin for a month before(major surgeroy,appendix) and you know they say NSAID's cause inhibits protein synthesis?Yeah...didn't hurt me.Then another study shows how if you take them after it increases it.....with all the information and misinformation they never actually get into the "how bad it messes with you"is it a 1% inhibition?50%?I believe if it dose mess with them,it's not going to be that big of a difference for the general public.Well...I say if your miserable just take the meds and don't be miserable.You will be fine.Hope you get to feeling better

    I'm going to say reduce your cap of alpha t2 or aav2.
    Too much alpha y has caused some nasal issues

    Agreed. From literature I have read.
    In Australia, don't have access to it but maybe sometime in near future.

    I also found a relaxed forehead with a sinus massage opens up the airways nicely

    This could also be a bio-marker for a higher toxic load and inflammation

    I have the opposite issue when I take drive and rpm. My nasal path way becomes very dilated. Feels good for my sprints.
