San Francisco, CA- Brandon Rios, who just a fortnight ago put forth a dismal effort against Manny Pacquaio, according to three confirmed sources, flunked the post fight drug test given November 24 in Macao. Below is what I could find on the particular drug.
ACCORDING TO THE EXPERTS
Dimethylamylamine is a drug made synthetically in a laboratory. It was originally used as a nasal decongestant. Today, dimethylamylamine is sold as a dietary supplement used for attention deficit-hyperactive disorder (ADHD), weight loss, improving athletic performance, and body building.
WADA BANNED DRUG IN 2010 FOR ATHLETES
Many athletes take dimethylamylamine to improve performance. However, dimethylamylamine was added to the World Anti-Doping Agency’s prohibited substances list for 2010. Therefore, competitive athletes should avoid taking it.
Due to safety concerns, dimethylamylamine has been temporarily removed from military stores in the US. It has also been banned in New Zealand. Its use has been linked to several reports of serious, life-threatening side effects.
