Yup - I used to down the stuff like crazy until I read it was really bad to do so before an intense workout. I wish I still had the article. Basically it's not so good for your kidneys and can cause permanant damage. I took a Tylenol instead but it didn't do a damn thing.

It's San Antonio, FL btw. A wee little speck on the map, hardly even a town. Never been to SATX. Austin is lovely though
