Performance Enhancers: The Safe and the Deadly

The following are some of the things you will learn from this article:

Overview (or “Heads Up”) is a performance enhancing drug that increases strength, speed, endurance, coordination and power. Its effects last up to two hours and it is very dangerous if taken with other drugs such as alcohol or steroids.

If used without these substances, its effects may not even be felt until after 2 hours have passed.

There are many different types of Overview, but they all work similarly. They increase your heart rate, blood pressure and oxygen consumption.

Some of them can cause hallucinations, delusions and psychosis. There are no known safe doses of Overview.

It was first discovered in Russia in the early 20th century when Russian scientists were conducting experiments on animals. Since then there have been numerous reports of its use in various sports competitions around the world including boxing matches, wrestling matches and body building contests.

In the United States, it is commonly used in weight lifting competitions and bodybuilding contests. It is most often found in the form of a pill called “Caffeine Free”.

Other forms include liquid drops, gels and patches. It is also available as a powder or capsule.

Many athletes use it to enhance their performance during competition, however, there have been several cases where athletes have died due to using it while competing. A majority of the deaths have been those taking in excessive amounts, but there have been incidences where even normal dosages where enough to be fatal.

The drug has also been known to cause heart attacks in young, otherwise healthy individuals or those with high blood pressure or other heart conditions.

Even low dosages of Overview can cause anxiety, rapid heart rate, elevated blood pressure and panic attacks in some people. High dosages can cause death from cardiac arrest.

In general, it is not considered safe for human consumption. However, if you are considering using it or have already used it, there are several factors that will affect its effects on the body.

These include: dosage, frequency of use, other drugs in your system (over the counter or prescription), and your overall health.

If you have a heart condition or pre-existing heart problems, Overview can be fatal even at low dosages. If you have high blood pressure or any other medical condition that may affect your heart rate, Overview can be extremely dangerous.

Even if you have no known heart problems or conditions, Overview is still not recommended and can be fatal if you do use it.

Because of its effects on your body, Overview can cause various health issues. These side effects range from dizziness to blurred vision.

It can also cause excessive sweating, nausea and vomiting. Other side effects can include stomach pain, diarrhea and muscle tremors. High dosages of the drug can cause long and short term memory loss, hallucinations and delusions.

Even high dosages of Overview are not likely to cause a heart attack directly. However, the panic attack which is known to be one of its side effects can cause a person to have a heart attack if they are prone to them.

There have been many incidences where athletes have died due to heart issues while using Overview.
