    Could Drive be making me tired?


    I've been using RPM/Drive for six weeks now. I've had remarkable results from using them, and couldn't be happier.

    Two weeks ago I noticed that approximately 60-70 minutes after taking the pre-workout dose, I got really sluggish and tired in the gym. It didn't happen every day, but two or three times a week, this happened to me.

    I haven't switched anything up since the beginning - I take three Drive at 7am, and three Drive at 3pm, an hour before going to the gym. I also take four RPM at 3pm as well.

    My sleeping patterns and diet have remained consistent throughout this, so I was unsure if it was the Drive or the RPM, although at a glance it would be hard to see RPM as the culprit.

    On days that I skip the afternoon dose of Drive, I power through the workouts. When I use it, the sluggish feeling returns.

    Is there any logical explanation for this?

    I personally instead of taking both Drive and RPM at 3pm, I would take the Drive at 2pm and then the RPM at 3pm.

    I experienced this when I first started RPM and Drive. Taper down the dosage. Ultimately the most I can handle without getting fatigue is either 3 caps of either RPM or Drive. If I take four I regret it. I could only handle taking it once a day. Hopefully the fatigue/tired feeling will wear off over time.

    I researched the ingredients and I couldn't find any sides that included sloggishness/fatigue ect. If anything, I think it's the naringin. From what I hear, naringin can be unpredictable.

    I suggest lowering the dosage and over time you may be able to bring it back up again.

    The odd thing is that I experience zero sluggishness or tired feelings when I take three in the morning.

    However, the second dose is what kills me. What's especially strange about that is that it's taken along with RPM....

    ...which is why I suggested to not take them together, haha. With products that are normally stacked together it's all about synergy. It's possible that your body reacts negatively to those 2 products taken together at the same time..which could be why you get a PM crash...but it doesn't bother you on your first dosing.

    i experience this also with the preworkout dose. The morning dose doesnt make me tired at all though. I upped the rpm to 3 instead of 2 for more energy. I also take the drive at the same time... that might be the source of teh problem?

    I find with drive I really require more sleep than I normally would, I just make sure I get to bed early.

    Ah whoops, sorry I missed this till now. One thing that might cause it is that drive can slightly lower blood sugar levels, making you a little hypoglycemic. Try taking in a small amount of either simple or complex carbs maybe 1/2 hr after taking drive, but before workout.

    If you're currently taking anti-depressants or such, the naringin can have a profound effect on increasing circulating blood plasma levels on many compounds.
    Freedom means nothing here.

    Thanks guys.

    No anti-depressants......yet.

    I'll incorporate carbs prior to the workout and see how that works. Yesterday, I used RPM pre-workout and took Drive afterward. No problems at all.

    yeah, doesn't necessarily need to be a lot of carbs, 10g would likely do it. probably better if its simpler carbs, just for speed purposes
