Hi, I found that xenadrine is the brand name for these ingredients:

"Pantothenic Acid (Vit B-5) 40 mg.
Bitter Orange (5 mg. synepheine) 85 mg.
MaHuang (20 mg. ephedrine) 335 mg.
Guarana Extract (200 mg. caffeine) 910 mg.
White Willow Bark (15 mg. salicin) 105 mg.
Ginger Root 50 mg. "

so I can answer your last question "is taking xenadrine the same as drinking a lot of coffee?"

No, because xenadrine is about more than caffeine. Caffeine by itself doesn't help weight loss (or so I have heard), but when taken with ephedrine it makes the ephedrine twice as effective at increasing the metabolic rate of fat cells and burning fat.

As to whether it is safe to use this product. Ephedrine would probably be the most effective and therefore the most dangerous ingredient. The FDA wants to ban this and it is already banned in TX (last I heard). I have seen some websites for Ephedra where they won't ship to Texas.

The other ingredients, aspirin (salicylate from Willow Bark), caffeine, panthothenic acid, ginger root and Bitter Orange are all safe to use by themselves but aspirin and caffeine can make ephedrine not just more effective but consequently also more dangerous. You will have to ask yourself whether the benefits outweigh the risks, and judge for yourself as to whether you should keep using it. If I were in your place I would continue taking it in the same amount and also with the break time in between. It is better to take a low dose over an extended period of time because then symptoms and side effects of overdosing would sneak up gradually and you would then be warned to stop taking the drug.
