Epinephrine

Also known as adrenaline, a medication used to control bleeding and to prolong the effect of local anesthetics; works by constricting the blood vessels

Question: Epinephrine? Will epinephrine make me more aggressive? Like, say for example that I am really timid in football. If I take epinephrine will it just make me go crazy and be relentless? Thanks.

Answer: I think it's more for getting over hives. I wouldn't use it for sports. Use visualization. See yourself in your imagination, from OUTSIDE yourself. See yourself playing sports. Now, see yourself being stronger & more aggressive, when it's necessary. See yourself being applauded by your teammates & your coach yelling, "Great!" at you. That's better than weird drugs.
