Brief Answer:
It increases blood pressure and heart rate.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear, welcome to Ask a doctor service.
I read your query and here is my advice.

Heptaminol is an amino alcohol that works as cardiac stimulant. It increases blood flow to heart and less in extremities. It increases heart contractions and increases blood pressure too.
It can't be taken by patients which suffer from high blood pressure and coronary disease.
I read the ingredients of clear victory drink and it is not listed there.

Hope I have answered the question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.

A young man was given this drink in a locker room by a coaching professional. They are claiming he tested positive for heptaminol as a result. Since it is an unalloyed substance by the NCAA, he has been suspended. Could anything else cause a false positive, in your opinion?
