Just been searching the net for side effects on Atro-phex and found this thread. I have been seriously ill on these bad boys.... I was really really looking forward to taking them, going on holiday soon and just wanted that extra shredded look, I ordered them from Bodybuliding.com and because I live in England I had to wait for like 3 weeks for the dam things to arrive but when they did I was really looking forward to taking them.
First day.... took one capsule - everything was fine.... drank water constantly through the day as usual and went to the toilet like every 15 mins but I felt pretty good. Then I moved onto two caps twice a day... again felt the buzz and went to the toilet even more but felt fine and could feel myself ripping up. Then I made the fatal error of taking three capsules one morning! I made it to work but I felt so dizzy, my chest was tight, my neck was really stiff, my kidneys hurt, I had a roaring headache, I couldn’t concentrate on nothing..... I honestly felt like I had taken drugs. I gave the gym a miss that night and the next day just took 1 capsule and had the same effects as when i took 3.... I thought maybe I was just being paranoid and was creating these side effects in my head but when I got to the gym I did a few light dumbbell presses and had to lay down on the gym floor I very nearly blacked out. I barely made it out of the gym and someone had to drive me home I was seriously unwell. I couldn’t sleep on them I just couldn’t function properly. Usually I dont care what I take it has never bothered me, I listen to guys in the gym saying that they had side effects to this and that and I think to myself that they are just being paranoid but I guess this time I knew what they meant.
Im so disappointed because I use NO-Xplode and the BSN protein and have always recommended BSN to all the guys at my gym but these Atro-Phex were bad news for me. Its a real shame because they worked so well for two days then just grabbed me by the balls and swung me round.
This is by no way an account of the supplements themselves just an account of my experience with them.

I had been diagnosed with hypothyroidism a couple of years ago. I've been taking synthroid ever since (small dose @ .15 p/day)
When taking ephedra products, I felt a tightening in my throat area... mostly just uncomfortable, and affected my singing voice. Especially when combined with Yohimbe products.
With AP I haven't noticed any such side effects.
Can someone explain what "suppression" of the thyroid means?
Does it mean this product might be doing the direct opposite of what my thyroid medication is doing?
By the way, just got back from Miami... I looked freakin' awesome (at least for me). It's nice to be able to walk around without being self conscious. I attribute some of that to working out with AP.
On the other hand, I ate like $hi+ and will have to work double hard after my pub crawl this weekend.
You're all welcome to join the Pub Crawl in NYC. Let me know if you're interested and I'll fill you in on the details. It's this Saturday from 2:30 PM to around 3 AM. I know... drinking is bad for the gut... but at least I hooked up some drink specials so it's lighter on the wallet.

OK, been a little while.
I've stopped using AP for a little while to see how I feel.
I haven't noticed the diuretic effects of AP either way.
Yeah, the energy was great, and personally I didn't notice any shifts in my mood or attitude... well, except that I was pleased with the way I was looking.
Been drinking and partying for a couple of weeks, so had to stop. When I would drink the same day as taking AP, I would practically pass out for a minute or two if I was sitting down.
Was really difficult to stay awake. Of course that did pass after just a minute or two of losing control, but still not a good feeling.
Had a pub crawl and a trip to Miami and a few other crazy events, so going to the gym wasn't an option either.
I'm back in to the gym yesterday with just noXplode even though it makes my face puffy, under 20 grams of carbs, and protein protein protein.
Anyone know of a way to stop the puffy face I get from noXplode? I love the product and the taste except for that...
Actually, all I really want from it is the energy and focus. I love the way I feel on it.
Anyone recommend something similar that won't get me puffy?
Just looking for the energy and focus.
I'll try to stack NoXplode with Atrophex, Protein, and Nitrix next month possibly... if anyone cares to hear about it.

Hello everyone. I didn't have an AM account until I saw this thread, but I had to create an account to let you all know how Atro-phex is working for me. I also like this site a lot, it turns out.
I purchased a 98 capsule bottle the other day in addition to N.O. Xplode and Syntha-6. I had to give myself a bit of a warm-up period before using my supplements, so I just started using them all today and I gotta say.. I'm pretty happy with the results so far. The Atro-phex is giving me a constant warm fuzzy feeling. I wasn't too hungry throughout the day until after my workout.
So far, I have no side effects aside from being unable to sleep. However, this is a condition I've had since way before I started using these supplements. In addition, I don't yet know what it's like to take 4 capsules twice a day. Right now, I'm running on 2 capsules twice a day ever since I read some disturbing side effects caused by Yohimbe. Regardless, I feel that 2 capsules twice a day is a substantial amount; the 98 capsule bottle will last almost 24 days at this rate. This lines up pretty well with my N.O. Xplode and Syntha-6 regiment.
I will continue to track my experience and let you all know how it fares.
