When Cytodene initially developed Xenadrine RFA-1, a supplement for weight loss, the product was a huge success. However, the negative effects of its primary ingredient, ephedra, were soon realized. Ephedra has been known to cause numerous health problems relating to the heart, respiration, and breathing. When these problems were addressed, Cytodene began working on a new weight loss formula without ephedra. Xenadrine EFX is the updated, ephedra-free supplement for losing fat while sparing lean muscle.

Known Xenadrine EFX Risks

By cutting out ephedra, potential risks of using Xenadrine EFX have diminished considerably. However, there are a few risks to consider before taking the product. Most Xenadrine EFX users will experience little or no negative side effects from the supplements. However, as with all supplements, the formula may affect each user differently.

Some common side effects of using Xenadrine EFX include massive boosts in energy, shaking, anxiety, light headedness, increased heart rate, sweating, and increased thirst levels. Users may also experience cramps, light headaches, numbness, nausea, or upset stomachs. Some users have reported the appearance of spots on their skin while taking the product. This is likely caused by the ingredient, tyrosine which produces melanin pigments.

Xenadrine EFX should not be used by those who are pregnant, nursing, or being treated for heart disease, high blood pressure, hyperthyroidism, psychiatric disease, migraines, or asthma. Those who are allergic to chocolate or tyramine should also avoid this product. Individuals wishing to eliminate caffeine from their diet should avoid Xenadrine EFX as well, since the recommended dose contains about as much caffeine as a cup of coffee. It is important to know that ingesting coffee or other caffeine products while taking Xenadrine EFX can increase levels of nervousness, sleeplessness, irritability, and heartbeat.
