Finally tried my Biotest Spike sample. Not good
I posted this on BB.com. And wanted to share it over here too, in case none of you go over to that forum.
Ok, I'm not the biggest poster in the world, but I feel I really need to put this on the board.
I recieved my free sample about a week ago. Beautiful packaging, bottle, and everything. Very well thought out sample.
So today, I had the day off of work and had a bunch of things I needed to do. I'm a seasoned ephedra/caffeine/yohimbe/Redline RTD consumer. I never had a problem with any of those.
I took 2 pills of Spike figuring I'm pretty used to stimulants. About 1 or 2 hours after ingestion I started feeling nausious, went up stairs and laid down. It was all downhill after that. I was freezing cold, shivers, fever, headache, muscle aches. It felt like I had come down with a severe flu. It was HORRIBLE. I haven't been sick in about 2 years. But, soon after ingestion I felt awful. I tried to stand up and immeditatly had to lay back down. I didn't get up to check my temperature, but it was easily over 100*F.
I took the sample at about 2 o'clock, and finally I'm starting to feel a little bit better, and it's 8 o'clock. Maybe my reaction to this was unusual, but I just wanted to let everyone know about my experience.
So, if anyone does try it, definately only take 1, and hope that this doesn't happen to you.
Sorry about my rant, but I have to let everyone know about this.

Jesus, I haven't even gotten my samples yet, but I think I'll just trash them now. I've seen probably 20+ reports of similar reactions. I haven't heard of anyone having those problems with bulk sulbutiamine, I wonder what the hell the deal is?? Any reports like this popping up on the spike forum? I doubt it...

There are several reports of this at Avant. Yet, very few people are having any trouble with straight sulbutiamine. Makes me wonder what else Biotest stuck in there.

I got my samples... this stuff did absolutley nothing for me. Oh well, it was free. Makes me wonder why they'd spend all that money sending away a ineffective product.

I have been using Spike on and off for several months. I started with one pill a day as biotest recommended. Like others here, I have used many stimulants. For me Spike beat them all hands down. It is clean - no foggy brain effect, and I never developed a tolerance to it. Several of my friends have use it and report the same. However, I did read some posts on the biotest thread to the contrary. Apparently a small percentage of users have no reation to it at all.

Seriously, what else in it in besides caffeine? I know the label is proprietary, but if this many people are getting sick, there is defiantly something else to it.

I don't know, but whatever it is, they need to take it out of their formula fast.Originally Posted by custom

It did nothing for me, and I took 2. I took one, nothing. Next time I took it, took 2 and still felt nothing.
Did nothing to or for me, the 2 times I took stimulants before I took around 600mg of caffeine and all I got was mild vascularity, another time was Ephedrine and Caffeine with Asprin and I felt a little more 'energy' but less ability to concentrate to say, had a hard time focusing on my workout.

I got the same exact feeling you did when I first took 2 pills...I hated it so much I tried it the next day . It didn't do the same thing..no chills, nausea, just slight energy/focus. I ordered two samples, and its been about 2 weeks since I got the chills, etc..but I'm scared to take it again, for fear of another 'breakout'.

I did get a slight boost in energym but then after two or three hours I would get a foggy brain and cannot focus. I tried using it to help me stay up and study.I could not study as much as I normally could because of this feeling.

i had the same horrible reaction. i finally caved in and got some xanax to reduce all the **** physical reactions.
something else in there that reacted with me or other supps im on. it felt like a Yhcl OD. i still have the rest of the pills but this is probably the only supplement im afraid to try again.(and id do freakin UA/SU again if i find it that is....)
i think biotest owes us an apology or at least a warning on possible reactions to whatever is in.
on a side note, i tried ergopharm's AMP(first samples ever out) and though it didnt do much, i loved it. i had a feeling i needed twice that dose, now that was a promising product!

I tried Spike for the second time today and did not notice anything. At least I didn't have to pay anything to realize it doesn't work!

i took it and i liked.
I train early 5am. I would wake up at 4:20am and take 2. By 5am Im wide awake and can't wait to get in the gym. I liked it a lot, I think it works great.
