I'm wondering if it would be dangerous if someone had the workout supplement in there system the same time as cocaine?
From what i know L-Arginine lowers blood pressure... so it should be safe?
whereas ephedrine would raise blood pressure and not be a good combo with cocaine and be dangerous? right?

I checked for drug interactions on the following sites:medscape, drugs.com
L-Arginine is not known to react with cocaine and some sites it wasn't even known as a possible interaction so make what you will of that
Wikipedia so not the best source but i thought i should post this seeing as it might be relevant:
Possible increased risk of death after supplementation following heart attack
A clinical trial found that patients taking an L-arginine supplement following a heart attack found no change in the heart's vascular tone or decrease in the symptoms of congestive heart failure (the heart's ability to pump). In fact, six more patients who were taking L-arginine died than those taking a placebo resulting in early termination of the study with the recommendation that the supplement not be used by heart attack patients. These findings suggest L-arginine is not beneficial post-heart-attack.
Heres a supposed + of L-Arginine
Quickens repair time of damaged tissue
A recent meta-analysis showed that L-arginine reduces blood pressure with pooled estimates of 5.4/2.7 mmHg for SBP/DBP.
Anyway losing the topic, was up all night so feeling a bit wired.
Here's a slightly better source with some info but i can't for the life of me understand these technical terms
And here's just a snippet of the conclusion if you can't be stuffed reading through it like me, sorry if this is all irrelevant as i said been up all night and brains not functioning properly. Damn i sit down to try and write a quick reply and end up with a ramble my bad on that one =/
Conclusions L-Arginine, when added to standard postinfarction therapies, does not improve vascular stiffness measurements or ejection fraction and may be associated with higher postinfarction mortality. L-Arginine should not be recommended following acute myocardial infarction.
