No more Hydroxycut W/ephedra

My supplement store owner informed me that they will no longer make this and that all they have left is what's on the shelf. I had to look for bottles that people stashed in the pack of the ephedra free ones. Is this a hoax?

Ephedra. No good. That don't use E anymore because it turned out to be not so good for consumption. Why would you want it after hearing that kinda news?

Yeah I know that but I didn't know they were discontinued already. Some people are allergic to it and other abuse it. I for one do not have a problem with it. And I am not sure if it would be worth it without Ephedra.

Tis true. They are no longer making it. The companies are selling what they have left. From what I've heard it is due to insurance claims from these dumb asses(some who are dead) who think doubling or tripling the dose gets 2-3 times the reults. Well, no they don't ... they get crazy high BP and other heart and cardiovascular problems from it. I think the topper for Ephedra was the pro baseball player(can't remember his name) awhile back that "supposedly" died from it. Anyway, there will be something else pop up

Zenotrope is a good replacement. I bought a bottle of this and Xenadrine RFA-1 the last time I stocked up. The Zenotrope is 7 bux cheaper, and same dosage as the RFA-1. I swapped them from day to day and felt NO difference between them.

I've emailed [email protected] to ask about the RFA-1 being discontinued. I asked back in march, since their online store doesnt show it. The response I got back was that its staying and not being discontinued. So, I emailed them again just now to see if anything has changed. I'd hate to think they would stop making it.

Good for me there are alternatives.

And this is after bustin my ass at the gym, I've even started playing racket ball after I lift just to calm myself down. Is this normal or do I need to switch to another product?

You need to switch unless you like insomnia.

I gave up the ephderine a while back, and feel alot better
about it. No more racing heart , hypertension or insomnia .

You can always take Sudephed and Vivarins to get the same effect.

Yeah I'm done with ripped fuel I slammed 2 rum and cokes before I went to bed last night and still tossed and turned all night. Is hydroxycut any better about insomnia?? I'm thinking I need to be doing creatine instead of this type of supplement anyhow. I'm about 175 lbs 5 foot 10 and since my max is pretty pathetic It seems like any mass I add will pretty much lead to me getting cut as well. But I dont know I'm new to all of this.

Different products effect different people different ways. I've never had a problem with taking ripped fuel as late as 3PM and still being able to sleep. If you still want to take it why don't you start it in the morning instead of lunch? If this is your first time trying any type of Ephedra based product, realize this is a common side effect that could go away.

FYI, I would not take any type of thermogenics for over 60 days at a time. Just my $.02

There is more than one ripped fuel. One has ephedra and the other does not.

You need to lower your dosage for at least a week. Then each week after, up it. It lets your body slowly get used to the ephedra. If not you will not be able to sleep and you will get headaches.
