Dear Loretta
If the product only contains amino acids (check on the label) and no additional stimulants like ephedrine, or guarana or laxative like bear berry, then the product will not harm you if you take it as prescribed. If in doubt, take the product to your chemist and have him/her check the ingredients against the latest MIMS Drugs in Sport publication. Don't exceed the suggested dosage and remember to drink 3-4 glasses of water in addition to your other liquids.
