Did you suffer a heart attack or other heart problem while using a DMAA (dimethylamylamine) dietary supplement? Also known as "workout boosters," DMAA supplements sold under the names Lean Efx, Napalm, Nitric Blast and others have been the subject of Food & Drug Administration (FDA) warnings. DMAA is known to narrow the blood vessels and arteries, which can elevate blood pressure and may lead to cardiovascular events ranging from shortness of breath and tightening in the chest, to heart attack, according to the agency. In December 2011, the U.S. Department of Defense pulled dozens of DMAA products from U.S. military bases after two soldiers who died during or shortly after physical activity were found to have DMAA in their bloodstreams.

The defective drug lawyers at Parker Waichman LLP are currently investigating DMAA supplement side effects, including:

  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Seizures
  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Liver damage or liver failure
  • Kidney damage or kidney failure
  • Psychiatric side effects
  • Elevated blood pressure
  • Sudden cardiac death

DMAA Supplements

DMAA dietary supplements have been marketed by certain companies as a dietary supplement in combination with caffeine and other ingredients. DMAA supplements contain a synthetic drug ingredient that has a stimulant effect that is similar to ephedrine, though not as strong. Though DMAA supplements are marketed as "natural," most experts agree there is no credible evidence linking DMAA to a natural source, and it is actually a synthetic drug.

DMAA may be listed on supplement labeling as

  • 1,3-dimethylamylamine
  • Methylhexanamine
  • geranium extract (or any part of the geranium)
  • 4-methyl-2-hexanamine
  • 2-amino-4-methylhexane

In December 2011, DMAA workout boosters were banned from on-site stores at U.S. military installations after the deaths of two soldiers were linked to such products. In the summer of 2011, a 22 year-old soldier collapsed and died at an Army base in the Southwest during a training run. That fall, another solider at the same base collapsed after a physical fitness test. The 32-year-old died in the hospital just a month later. Both soldiers were found to have DMAA in their blood.

FDA DMAA Warning Letters

In April 2012, the FDA issued warning letters to 10 DMAA supplement makers and distributors for marketing products for which evidence of the safety of the product had not been submitted to FDA.

DMAA supplements named in the FDA letters included:

  • Biorhythm SSIN Juice
  • Lean Efx
  • Spirodex
  • PWR
  • Napalm
  • Code Red
  • Hemo Rage Black
  • Lipo-6 Black Ultra Concentrate
  • Lipo-6 Black
  • Lipo-6 Black Hers Ultra Concentrate
  • Lipo-6 Black Hers
  • MethylHex 4,2 
  • Nitric Blast
  • Oxy Elite Pro
  • Jack3D 

According to the FDA, it has received 42 reports of side effects in patients who took supplements that contain DMAA. They included heart and nervous system problems, psychiatric disorders, and death.
