Hi I have recently purchased some T5 fat burning pills.
I have random drug checks in my job and just want to know if they will make me fail.
They contain ephedrine 30mg Caffeine 250mg
aspirin 150mg.
I'm worried about them having ephedrine in, are these products legal?
Thanks for requesting me.
Next time, please set up the question for a medical answer, which will have the correct amounts, etc.
NO, this will not make you fail.
There could be a false positive initially because of the ephedrine, but the sample will be split and sent for confirmatory testing.
That testing will identify that this is ephedrine, and not something else.
Over the counter products are legal.
Ephedrine is not a controlled substance.
Ephedrine is not illegal in the UK, nor is caffeine or aspirin.
Please click a positive rating.
