Why would you want to use a slimming pill?

Can't you run?

I think you might be on about Ephadrin, and it is illegal in the army. Hydroxicut Harcore uses it and guys on tour in Iraq are banned from using it

The name Ethergen is unknowm to the MIMS online guide, either as a generic drug or as a registered brand name. If MIMS don't know about it, then your drug is probably a poison. Traditionaly illegal slimming pills contain amphetamines, these will definately get you kicked out but getting kicked out is then perhaps the least of your worries.

Ephedrine compounds are used in some slimming drugs. Check them out first, Google MIMS.

Why would it be illegal? It's not illegal in civvie street? I can understand it would be frowned upon and I don't know why anybody would use ephedrine, but I doubt it's illegal..

Hmmm.. Doesn't fit in with military life perhaps?

IIRC there are possible problems with Blood Pressure and Kidneys, and if not used properly can cause dehydration or heat stroke.

Can also affect attention and the gestational tract.... Of special note on teh attention side, it can also lead to paranoia and panic, periods of agitation and (now think of someone holding a weapon) hostility.

It was "vogue" for a while for students and business men to take it to "improve" concentration... this can lead to stimulant addictiction.

I wouldn't worry about it. I mean people found with cocaine in their urine just have to promise not to do it again, and agree to more regular drug testing. It's not like you're out on your ear anymore.
Oh...fcuking...really?!

Yes, unless the last CDT results-day at my unit was some sort of vivid dream
Would you care to elaborate?

"Pte Richard Levell, an 18-year-old recruit at the Infantry Training Centre in Catterick, North Yorkshire, confessed to taking the drug in his barrack room after an instructor found the video evidence on his mobile telephone."

Clearly a very sharp cookie then.

I know someone caught fairly recently, he's still around 4 months later and no idea wtf is going on.
 
#14
The lad caught at Catterick perhaps is a good case of how in some cases (ie one every millenia) it may be worth retaining the individual.

The CIC lad is 18, and probably early in his training. A short sharp pull up, including education, may well pull this lad back on to the rails. This could be a throw back to his civvie days.

The caught lad is likely to be already feeling a bit of "peer pressure" (but NOT bullying) and perhaps feels like an arrse for doing it.

I very much doubt a CDT team will be passing this lad in the night for any short time.

Would you trust someone who talks about 'gestational tracts'???

Last time I did biology, gestation was a term referring to the timescale for pregnancy.

Gastrointestinal tracts, well then, that's something different altogether.

Kinda highlights my concerns about taking medical advice from ARRSERS!

Your advice is sound and I'd like to think that, in my specialist area, mine is too but....

a. You and I know we have valid qualifications, but others don't know that.

b. Others sound convincing but talk cra..... errrr rubbish.

Going back to my reference to 'gestational tract' - some folks won't even have spotted how impossible that is, and will hang on every word in the post even though it doesn't make sense. Unless folks know the credentials (and I aint giving my details out for them to check registration!) they should take any advice with a pinch of salt.

Even yours hunny ;-)

mate of mine bangs ephedrine down range all the time, we been cdt'd recently and no one in the battalion picked up, to be fair think they have their hands full with the harder stuff, also i think the eventual result depends on the CO (not that you wont get in trouble but if he thinks you are worth saving,maybe not booted out)

I found all the info on various sites including NHS sites..... admitedly I did mistake gestational with gastrointestinal. thay both begin with g, and end with nal though :D

Check the details of the information I posted, let me know if it wrong.
