Do you have a DMAA lawsuit? If you have experienced a severe side effect after using products containing this drug (such as the pre-workout supplements Jack3d, OxyELITE Pro, or DMAA/geranium party pills), contact a DMAA lawyer. You may be entitled to compensation. Concern over the safety of this drug is growing, following the deaths of two soldiers who had DMAA in their bloodstream. In separate incidents, three soldiers and two Marines collapsed during heavy exercise had been taking the drug. The U.S. Department of Defense has banned the sale of products containing this drug on military bases.
The military found that the drug was unsafe for soldiers to use because it changes blood pressure, causes headaches and light-headedness, irregular heartbeat, tremors, dehydration, stroke, and lethal exhaustion. Although there is no scientific evidence regarding the safety and risks of using DMAA, a military spokesman said that they would be erring on the side of caution. They are concerned because the drug could cause heart illness, kidney and liver damage, and sudden death.
What is DMAA? It is a popular stimulant drug, with properties similar to amphetamines and ephedrine, but not as strong. It has several names that may be listed on ingredient lablels, but it is most commonly labeled as 1,3-dimethylamylamine, methylhexanamine (MHA), or “geranium oil” or extract of the plant.
There has recently been controversy over whether DMAA is actually derived from the geranium plant, with the overwhelmind consensus being that it is not. The only scientific literature linking the drug to a natural source was published in a non-credible Chinese journal that is not peer-reviewed. Subsequent review also concluded that there were major flaws with the research. As a result, the American Herbal Products Association recently told its members not to label the drug as geranium oil, geranium extract, or any part of the geranium plant.The drug is sold in “dietary supplement” stores, marketed for weight-loss, pre-workout boosting, and energy enhancement. It is a vasoconstrictor, which means that it constricts the small muscles along the walls of blood vessels, thus constricting blood vessels. It also is a central nervous system stimulant.
Products containing DMAA are also sold as “party drugs.” Recently, a New Zealand man died after taking a “party drug” containing this drug, prompting New Zealand authorities to ban its sale and use in the country. Some people who have experienced servere side effects after using the drug are now contacting a DMAA lawyer for a DMAA lawsuit against the marketers and manufacturers of this drug.
In November 2011, a class action lawsuit was filed against USPLabs in California over the sale and marketing of “Jack3d” and “OxyElite Pro,” dietary supplements that are sold primarily as workout boosters.
