This just popped up on my Gumtree search page. Looks pretty suspect to me. Apart from Nicotine and Caffeine I have no idea what the other stuff is. Surely we are past the days of stuffing drugs down our throats to keep awake to meet a deadline?

I think that although it appears legal it is pretty unethical to market as Truckies Formula.

ZONEIN



TRUCKIES FORMULA

Whenever you're hauling on the Big Road just add 5 - 10ml ZONEIN to your water bottle and have a drink.

ZONEIN won't return a positive test!

We supply ZONEIN to Truckies, Miners, Taxi Drivers, Shift Workers in many industries, Gym Enthusiasts and Professional Athletes, just to name a few!

I went through the list and don't think any responsible person would use it, particularly while driving. This list is on top of the known serious side effects of nicotine and caffeine in the large amounts found in this brew.

Beta Alanine
Beta-alanine is a non-essential amino acid. Non-essential amino acids can be made by the body, so they don't have to be provided by food. Most amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. However, some like beta-alanine are used to make other chemicals in the body.

Beta-alanine is commonly used by mouth for improving athletic performance and building lean muscle mass in younger adults, and improving physical performance in elderly adults. It is also used for symptoms of menopause, but there is limited scientific research to support this use. The only reported side effect is paraesthesia (i.e., tingling)


Citrus Aurantium (also called Bitter Orange)used as a stimulant and for flavour
But bitter orange is POSSIBLY UNSAFE when taken in the larger amounts used as medicine. Bitter orange, taken by itself or with stimulants such as caffeine or caffeine-containing herbs, might increase the risk for high blood pressure, fainting, heart attack, stroke, and other severe side effects.

Taurine L-Carnitine
When taken by mouth: Taurine is LIKELY SAFE for adults when used in amounts found in foods. Taurine is POSSIBLY SAFE for adults when used as a medicine for up to 3 months.

Stevia (sweetener)
There’s concern that raw stevia herb may harm your kidneys, reproductive system, and cardiovascular system. It may also drop blood pressure too low or interact with medications that lower blood sugar.In some people, stevia products made with sugar alcohols may cause digestive problems, such as bloating and diarrhea.


N-Acetyl Lysteine

Generally OK. When taken before alcohol it protects the liver from damage BUT when taken after alcohol it increases liver damage considerably
Upset stomach
Diarrhea
Fatigue
Skin rash

I think your fighting loosing battle Lang
People refuse to do whats right with out been forced to, that has nothing to do with truck drivers but people in general


My father went thru a whole performance everytime he had to wear his seat belt for as long as I can remember
Despite the fact that they are proven to greatly increase your safety
I work on and off with a lot of younger people 35 and under and the recreational drug use these days is mind boggling

The whole culture of todays Australia is different than 30 years ago, I'm not as old as some but am a lot older than others

Back to trucks and stimulants, speaking to Pomy truck drivers, they tell me the best thing that ever happened to truck driving was a maximum 8 hour day, I believe that includes loading and unloading
The European trucking industry was dragged kicking and screaming into this but it forced change and the results were well worth it

That is how I understood what was told to me some years ago

We do the opposite in Australia, basic fatigue and mass management arent helping the situation and I feel are only making it worse

There are a couple of truckies that may have benefitted by using this over the last 2 or 3 days. One went off to the land of NOD and ended up in the boggy grass in the centre and the other clipped a rigid truck then jack knifed beautifully while travelling sideways wioping out some guard rail blocckin g the highway down to one lane for nearly all day while they recovered the semi then rapired the guard rail with a contra-flow in place.

What might have been in the No-Doze tabs from the 70s? Apart from a $hitload of caffeine that is.

All of that over the counter crap is nothing but Mind over matter as far as I'm concerned..

Because those that matter...

And those that mind....
don't matter." -

No Doz is still available. $16 a box from the chemist. I think a cup of coffee would be just as good.
