THE performance-boosting drug Atkinson took can cause extreme agitation and bizarre behaviour.
Ephedrine, which is banned in sport, is a stimulant which acts on the nervous system to speed up the brain and body.
In correct doses it is a useful medicine and can improve alertness and reactions.
But side effects include a racing pulse, anxiety, insomnia and shakes. In large doses ephedrine can lead to psychotic behaviour and impulsive actions, such as sudden violence or suicide.
Bodybuilding ex-US Marine David Bieber, jailed for life for shooting dead PC Ian Broadhurst in Leeds, was addicted to muscle-enhancing drugs and proteins similar to those used by Atkinson.
Ephedrine can also cause heart problems, high blood pressure and strokes.
Creatine is an amino acid, a type of protein and one of the few legal substances which works in building up muscle strength.
Sun GP Dr Carol Cooper said: “These drugs are a potentially lethal mix. Creatine can give you extra strength — ephedrine could make you use it violently'
Whilst I don't want to belittle the horror of the murder, how can a newspaper get away with writing this total garbage?
