T5s

#1
hi evryone,

im looking to join the TA, i realsied as a fat knacker i would have to loose weight and get fit.

8 weeks ago i started my diet (cambridge diet) and my army fit exercise programme.

i have now lost 3 stone and have only 1 to go to reach the max BMI of 28

As i have been following a hardcore diet and a intense fitness programme i have been having 1-2 T5's a day to give me energy.

Does anyone know if there are any restrictions to taking these before going into the army ie drugs test etc

Many Thanks

Dan :D

Bin em mate. Reason being you cant take them with you, you need plenty of scran, decent footwear, a pair of boots to run in as part of your programme, some undulating ground, a few big hills, plenty of kip and a bit of commitment. Blokes have done it for years, its sh*t now to see lads strutting round with protein shake containers, no need, Grandmas food, and lots of it.

T'5s have pretty high levels of amphetamine in so they send you nuts, they do really do the trick better than legal slimming pills though so you cant knock them for results.!

And you cant knock a five miler at 7am, a bit of improvised phys in the yard, back in for a dhobi, and a bowl of quakers full of honey and milk with a massive wet of tea, do you inject vodka for the better results as opposed to drinking it ?

T5's contain epherdrine (spelling???), which has been discussed a few times on these boards, try something like Thermobol or Grenade fat burners instead.

Are they illegal considering there sold over the counter in many gyms? fcuk knows but do you want to risk it?

thanks for the info guys

if anyone hasnt heard of cambridge its a non food diet where you have four shakes a day.

thats why i cant tuck into stodgy food cause iv been on it for 8 weeks and if i start eating again without introducing foods gradually i will pile it all back on.

thats why im having T5's

i have got some thermobol and it does absolutly nothing and i have some grenades but they have changed the compound since the last batch i had and they are a bit poo too any other ideas i can give a bash.

will ephadrine come up in a drugs test

Ephedrine in tablets/capsule form is a Prescription Only Medicine and should only be available from registered prescribers. Why do you think that is? Do you think it could be because of all the risks associated with taking it unsupervised? Or perhaps with it being overused - whereby your body becomes dependant on it and forgets how to make it's own natural version? Or maybe the other cardiac, gastrointestinal, neurological and respiratory side-effects?

Of course, I am sure the supplies you are getting are properly licensed, quality assured and don't contain any foreign ingredients in them, such as other types of illegal or toxic substances. Oh - and you've checked that they are not counterfeit? And that they are supplied against a legal prescription.

Good. That's ok then.

There are no restrictions as such. Ephedrine is not an illegal substance. It can be bought over the counter in many forms. You can't test for something which is so common in everyday cold and decongestant remedies?

Whether it is ethical to take T5 is an entirely different matter.

thanks for everyones views,

im going to stop taking them as i didnt realise the potential side effects

Plus im just going to have to get used to running without them and get ship shape without them

I think you are thinking of pseudoephrine, which is chemically related but not the same thing. It is a less abused substitute.

Nothing wrong with some additional protein. It is hardly the same thing. Protein only supplements an good existing diet to help build muscle and aid recovery.

Thanks Milesy - I also suspect the confusion is pseudoephedrine - a common mistake.

I was careful to point out that oral preps are POM (as are injectable versions) as I am perfectly well aware that ephedrine nasal drops are available - but the systemic absorption of these is very minimal compared to something taken by mouth. Systemic effects can be significant and non-licensed products do not tend to be very well quality controlled. I reckon dropping the T5's is a good move.

Once again I urge folks not to make comments on medicines that are untrue. If you don't know the facts, then please don't say anything at all. Cheers

Peeby

It is also noted that all amphetamine type substances including ephedrine can bring on the onset of schizophrenia with those with family history / predisposed to it. I wouldn't touch it with a barge pole if I were you.
