Consumer Review: I Have Intense Workouts And Mood Swings While Using Ripped Fuel.

I am currently taking Ripped Fuel. I have really intense workouts while taking this stuff. It feels like I have mood swings sometimes and I just snap. In the past, I heard some bad things about Ripped Fuel. Can you please tell me the truth about this product? I am also taking it with Phosphagen HP and Vanadyl Sulfate. Is this a problem or is it ok? I've been having great results. I've been running faster than ever and my strength went up every week for the last 7 weeks. I have one more question. I am a college football player at The U. OF New Haven. Is it true if you take Phosphagen during the season it will cause you to cramp up during games? Thanks for your help, I really appreciate it.

Response #1

I have been taking Ripped Fuel on and off for about 7-8 months. I haven't really found any problems with mood swings or any negative effects. I am wondering if there are some longer term side effects possible from taking this and other enhancers such as Metacut.

Hope to hear from you,

Response #2

I have just finished off a bottle of ripped fuel. For the first week I had a lot of energy and I felt like I was cutting up. For the last while, though, I don't think it has been doing anything but giving me mood swings. I want to get cut up abs and I don't have far to go, what would help? Would taraxatone help?

Response #3

I am a psychiatric resident. I have seen quite a number of people, particularly young men aged 18 to late 20's who use either, or both, Creatine and Ripped Fuel and have mood swings of such severity as to warrant admission to a psychiatric hospital or who become outright psychotic (hallucinating, delusional, paranoid, etc.).

These people are generally taking more than the recommended amount. In some cases it has been reversible, but in others, not. While I do not know if studies have been done on this subject (I looked but could not find anything) to definitively substantiate a link between these supplements and mood disorders and psychosis (such studies may not even be ethical to do), it seems, at least from my personal experience, that there may be such a link.

Perhaps these people had a genetic predisposition to developing the disorder and the supplements brought that out. I'm not sure. It's a very interesting question that I hope can be answered. As with many things, only time will tell. In the meantime, it is probably prudent to be extremely careful with these supplements and to not exceed the recommended dosage. If indeed there is a proven link between psychosis and these supplements, a little bit of extra strength or muscle mass probably isn't worth the risk.

Response #4

I have not experienced any mood swings from taking Ripped Fuel, but know (Response #2) that the effect does decrease over time, and it is good to take a month or so off between bottles.

Response #5

I am the person who wrote #3 about the link between Ripped Fuel and psychosis and mood disorders. I have had the opportunity to research it a bit further. The active ingredient is a stimulant (often used in decongestants), and is, in fact, associated with psychosis. There are many documented case reports of it causing psychosis in people, particularly when taken in overdose.

Interestingly, the bottles of Ripped Fuel and Diet Fuel, which both contain the same amount of it state that you should not take more than 100 mg of the stimulant in a 24 hour period, but they go on to also say to take as many as 9 pills a day. Each pill contains 20 mg of it. If you do the math, that calculates to 180 mg per day, which is obviously more than the 100 mg per day that the package states not to exceed! So, it appears, that the manufacturers may be overdosing their customers. Anyway, as I said, be EXTREMELY careful in using these products, if they are used at all.

Response #6

I took both creatine and Ripped Fuel during the football season in high school and never experienced any worse mood swings than when I wasn't on them. I think the side effects depend on the person not the product.

Response #7

I guess as a female, I should not have taken ripped fuel. However, I did, and I had the best mood ever. I have mood swings anyway, and I have been happy. I am taking it to loose 9 lbs by summer, and it works great for me. My boyfriend lifts weights and it didn't help him. He weighs 220lbs. So you know, I am 120 lbs, and it's great.

Response #8

I have been taking Ripped Fuel for almost a month now, and while I have lost an incredible amount of weight in such short time, I do have mood swings and by the end of the day, I am dead-dog tired. I have also experienced some hair loss. Am I the only one? I am also a female. Is this product for men only?
