    It binds to the opioid receptor, so yes, it can easily cause dependency.

    Also, to avoid issues with the heart and anxiety, two things will straighten that out perfectly:

    L-Theanine @ 200-400mg per day
    Trimetazidine @ 30-60mg per day

    Voila!

    I messed with phenibut and f phenibut too, had a similar issue just not near as bad and I didn't have to stop using stimulants like with this. I'm riding it out and being very careful on using much if any stims till this fully subsides. May stick to coffee only for a week.

    L-theanine I can source but the trimetazidine not so readily. May snag some l-theanine to have with my coffee till this is completely over. The dependence thing is mind blowing - a class of product I will be avoiding in the future.

    It's about a 1/5 as bad as Kratom w/d so it could be much, much worse...

    Trimeta is good stuff in general though. A great performance enhancer too

    What's funny is I have Kratom and I have used it on a more regular basis in the past, never ended up withdrawing from it or having any sort of dependency like side effects.

    I used tianeptine in the past but dosing was smaller and not used for any regular amount of time. I tried and liked vicaine and had no issues with that product. So I guess using just straight tia and not monitoring doses more closely was just a bad idea.

  5. I stocked up just in case, however my hopes are that since this whole issue was brought up from a ridiculous cause, it will hopefully be very quickly resolved

    I'm with you, I feel like hi tech is well eqipt to reverse what's happened and win even more out of it. That's the hope any way, insane that the FDA wants dmaa gone so bad...Wonder what the motivation is and who else is behind them pushing so hard to have it entirely off the market.

  7. I feel blindsided by this, I was really holding out until Black Friday for a BOGO, but no major supp retailer online even carries this anymore. A shame.

  8. Great and helpful post with lots of important information.

  9. Man i still buy mesomorph on a regular, love the stuff.

  10. So to be clear... how is now different than before with the big dmaa scare? Last time it was back out very quickly, from what i understand it still is not actually banned right? Why is everyone liquidating and changing formulas to exclude it?

    No idea, but I grabbed what I could, because regardless the prices were good. I think retailers don't want to give the FDA reason to come knocking.

    The FDA pulled a similar maneuver with Ephedrine years ago. They squawked about Ephedrine being dangerous before actually having studies to prove such and got Congress to ban it. Later, reseerch specialists came forward with actual data suggesting it was relatively safe and probably shouldn't even be a controlled sunstance. They lifted the ban but did so behind closed doors and did not make it public that they made a mistake or that the ban was lifted. People to this day still think it is illegal, lol.

    While DMAA never had any legislation, the FDA stripped the DMAA out of GNC's warehouses without ANY legislation and refused to make a statement about it's legality. They wanted people to assume it was illegal & many did for a while. The only place I heard this news from was this website - hardly the proper channel to hear about something like this. Peope should know how unconstitutional our federal regulatory departments (FRD) really are. As far as I'm conerned, they're all a bunch of white-washed crooks that abuse their unelected, unconstitutional powers for their own existence and gain.

    If the FDA had been under a decent presidential regime at the time - one that honors due process - a lot of things would not have happened the way they did. Eric Portratz @ Primordial Performance would still be around and innovating awesome anabolic concoctions for us. You can thank him by the way for all the DHEA prohormones.

    This same tactic is played every day by the media against Trump and conservatives. They smear the crap outta something before the details come in and of course it takes headline news for a while then when the facts come in and they don't corroborate the initial story, the media very concertedly stops talking about it. They make no serious effort to correct themselves or their statements and the public at large goes on believing the first story, never understanding that the claims were wildly speculative and devious at best.

  13. Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe ephedrine is illegal in products claiming to be dietary supplements, and can only be sold otc in preparations meant to treat medical conditions, the contents of which are supposedly regulated by the FDA. And I feel like the reason that supplement companies abandon ingredients isn't because they are duped into thinking they are illegal, rather fear that they will become illegal via some arbitrary dictum and leave them holding the bag on a product they can no longer sell when they should have read the writing on the wall.
    Also not trying to get too much into politics here, but I think it is irrelevant which presidential regime the FDA functions under. It's purpose is still the same, stated or not it pretty much exists to remove or regulate any clinically effective ingredient with demonstrable side effects from open market. Mainly because as soon as any compound is truly effective, it is treating a medical condition which makes it a "drug", which falls under their purview. And they need to "protect" the consumer from using it improperly because a few people were either misinformed or knowingly reckless about how to use it.
    And btw @fueledpassion don't even get me started on trump (also not fair to lump him in with other actual/reasonable conservatives) cause we aren't going to agree on that. Let's just keep trying to agree on matters of physiology and mutual disdain or at the very least jaded cynicism for most government agencies

    Sure. To clarify, I don't pick a certain side and go to the grave with them though. I prefer to use critical thinking - sometimes I believe the orange man is right, sometimes I believe he is wildly incorrect. But in general, our federal agencies were given a sort of unfettered power over industries like no other era in history (except under Roosevelt) over this past past decade of administration.

    Anyways, I agree. Trump isn't us, at least a good portion of the time he isn't lol. That said, I challenge your notion of speaking about politics in this thread - the way I see it, 100% of this topic is political in nature! I believe we should all be able to discuss even those ideological topics with each other and remain civil and, dare I say it, perhaps even like and respect each other more at the end of the conversation.

    May the best ideas win the discussion!

  15. I was simply saying I didn't want to go too much into politics (yet still I proceeded to), others braver or more foolhardy than I are more than welcome to take up that mantle lol. And I am all for discussion and critical thinking and hopefully out of this and here the best ideas will truly flourish!

  16. So does hi-tech appeal in about...2 weeks? From what Iv'e heard it's the same panel that took their appeal back in 2015

  17. DMAA is a fine supplement. I bought a 100 grams back when it was still considered ‘legal’.
    I toss it in occasionally during a cut or for some extra focus during a workout.

    Hehe nice,
    That's like over 5year supply.

  19. Why do they always wanna ban the stuff that works?!

  20. “BREAKING: Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals has filed their OFFICIAL appeal against the United States Government in the FDA DMAA case!
    https://blog.priceplow.com/dmaa-supplements/lawsuit

    There's nothing "new" learned in the 89 page document, but it's plainly-written and very well-argued, and tells the story from the beginning.

    Note that this is a SEPARATE ongoing legal battle compared to the #DMAA confiscation that was from the unrelated "Red Yeast Rice Raid"... but obviously both are important for Hi-Tech...”

    A few reasons, some with lots of supporting evidence, others from just my personal observations & intuition.

    The obvious and widely-supported reason they ban what works is because large pharma corporations can't make money on it when its on the open market and as you'd expect, they lobby congress and pay the FDA/DEA (probably through shell companies & kick-backs). Examples?

    That Red Yeast Rice extract was a good one that turns out had the active ingredient lovastatin and monocolin K found naturally in the supp - compounds that were marketed as a drug Mevacor. Mevacor cried to the feds that such a natural product existed as a $10 supplement rather than the absurd amount they charged as a result of cornering the market through what we call "prescriptions". So now, those supplement companies that sell RYR are supposed to remove the active ingredients before distribution of the product. Not all of them do, of course, but the legal noise certainly made everyone think it was being adequately regulated.

    Another one in the works is Kratom. About a month or so after Smith Kline finished up with a super-concentrated extract of the active alkaloids in Kratom, the DEA goes to squealing about its dangers.... Right....

    Then they make up a bunch of false claims to validate their position to ban it and so it goes.

    As for synthetic masculine sex hormones - isn't it obvious why the government (and media) wants to rid these from our access? Given the war on manhood (and boyhood) and given that test and its derivatives cause positive benefits to our dopamine/serotonin output which leads to and encourages (in many) critical thinking, spatial thinking, memory function, reduction in depression & anxiety, & an increase in confidence.

    Tell me, do you think the elite class wants the average joe to:

    1) become stronger
    2) become smarter
    3) become more visually appealing

    ???? That's why such great things are "off limits" to society, lol, because over time, steroids address each of the things that the elite believe separates them from the rest. Smart, good-looking & influential (or powerful). Think about it.
