    I was rummaging through my parents vitamin shelf and towards the back I came across an almost full bottle of Metabolife, looked a bit old.. Checked the ingridients and sure enough it has ephedra in it or 12mg of ephredrine a pill.

    My main concern is that this bottle looks a tad aged, is it still safe to take? I found what looks like an expiration date and I THINK it says 03...so?

    If its kosher to down, What can I expect?

    Any input on the situation would be appreciated :wiggle:

    i wouldnt be concerned about hte expiration date.. FDA req. a 2 year expiration on everything, regardless of waht its actual shelf-life is like. if it wasnt exposed to moisture, heat, sunlight -- i wouldnt worry about it.

    Ok I appreciate your input, I took two after this morning HIIT...

    I feel a bit jittery but very energized, looking forward to trying this in the gym.
