I accidentally did 4-5 times the dose I wanted of beta alanine.
At first I just had the usual tingles. More than usual but it felt great. Half way through my workout I started overheating. Just felt like my entire body was boiling.
I stopped the workout and had a cold shower (home gym master race). I kept feeling hot then cold then hot. Tingling became unbearable. Felt like I had rolled in a pile of freshly cut grass.
Basically had to lay down in the shower and all my mental effort went into not vomiting (ma gains). Didn't work though, lost my control and vomited like crazy.
Finally got out of the shower and laid on my bed. Took about 2 hours to return to normal.
Has this happened to anyone else? Or something similar? Anyone got any other overdose stories?

The difference between beta and creatine though is that most of the studies about beta alanine have only been shown to increase performance in long endurance activities such as marathon runners, crossfitters etc
>A significantly higher training volume was seen for BA in the bench press exercise
No wonder my bench stalled when I cycled off of pre-workout
took to dam much C4 earlier and popped 4 hydros 10mg. Now i feel like shit and my heart keeps palpitating while i have this shitty nauseated feeling in my stomach. trying to focus on Staying alive because my docter told me to stay away from caffeine because of my heart... Fuck why am i Such a dumass. evolution at work anons.
Creatine and BA can be taken any time. There isn't any benefit taking them pre-workout.
BA is commonly put in PWO because of the tingling feeling it gives you which some people think is a stimulatory.
If you don't want buy PWO then just use caffeine pills. You can get them from a chemist for $15/100 pills of 100mg.
I personally think there is a psychological aspect to taking PWO. You read stories about people smashing down 3 scoops and hitting PBs. You always hear about substances getting banned and there's all these long fkn chemical names on the over-the-top packaging. I think these things enhance the effect. Part of lifting is motivation and mental effort so it's not a bad thing.
