    I am inclined to agree w Pego's & Flumpy's comments & positions on this matter -- I did read the article Flumpy linked, and I have read a couple of others -- but I do have a couple of questions that perhaps can be commented upon by someone with scientific/medical training. I am not trying to get in an argument with anyone -- let me at least be clear on that point.

    This substance is a stimulant, so in some respect it could perhaps be performance-enhancing in some way, to some extent, right? If that's true, to some extent, how might this substance compare with caffeine, in its effects? I couldn't get a clear sense from my reading of "how much" of a stimulant it is.

    Does it have any sort of "masking agent" qualities? (I have no idea.)

    What I did note in multiple readings, in any case, is that this substance seems dangerous -- whatever it might provide (if anything) in "enhancement," it also seems to offer, so to speak, serious enough side effects to be a health hazard, at least for some persons -- e.g., elevating blood pressure.

    Seems like something athletes should be warned about, for sure. As for the other things, I would be interested to read more from someone in the know.

    I have watched the use of stimulants in sports/recreational activities for many decades. There have been many studies and all of them conclude "it may enhance performance", "some scientists think..." and such. There have been a few, even posted on this board in the past that unequivocally concluded that there is a PED property to stimulants. The problem with those was that a methodology was flawed to say the least and to the best to my knowledge, nobody was able to reproduce those positive results.

    I will just keep repeating my mantra, "Stimulants make you feel like Tarzan, but you perform like Jane."

    Some previously self-righteous posters have finally seen the light since their own countrymen have recently tested positive....

    It was a different story when these athletes belonged to different countries.

    Then you can stop referring to Justin Gatlin as a two time drug cheat and tell other people to, because his first "bust" was for a prescribed stimulant.

    Maybe they're banned because they're actually harmful, unlike anabolic steroids.

    I can't think of many things more potentially catastrophic than high intensity activity after taking something that will increase your heart rate.

    The issue most people have with Gatlin is that he never ever admitted any guilt on his part even up to this day.
