    really?

    Yeah, I tend to get a little "sleepy" as well from coffee. It's more something in the eyes, but it happens for sure all the time.

    Me too but with some stim products. Turns my eyes red and i feel pressure behind my eyes which causes them to strain and I feel tired as a result. I know it doesn't make sense but it happens to me sometimes.

    Maybe you people just have to cut out stimulants from your lives. Try it.

    Same here. I drink SB coffee (venti drip has 400mg caffeine) all day long and I dose 400mg pre-workout. It's my crack!

    Yeah sounds like adrenals are not recovering. Might be time to cut back on stims. I'm pretty much there too.

    The adrenal thing, for me is not the issue. I take pre workouts on a rare occasion, and only drink coffee when I'm studying for an exam. So not even every week...

    how do you know adrenals aren't an issue? The only way you would know that is if you had 24 hour cortisol saliva tests done.

    I understand that. i know they could always be a reason why they are messed up, but i havent given them a reason to be. Coffee has had this affect on me ever since i had my first cup

    and i cant cut stims out cause i dont take any!

    Coffee use to do that to me but only when I was burnt out. I use to drink coffee with 10 shots and call it the Superman then go bike 50 miles. Now I drink a few cups a day and chase it with Alpha T2 and it works ok. I can still drink a cup right before bed and have no problem sleeping.

    Haha

    OP-In regards to experiencing this yes I have that issue when I'm burnt out. Besides the obvious T-bone have you ever ran into this problem?

    I've cut out stimulants from my life for about 5 years or so now. Just recently decided to cut out coffee though it is a stimulant also. I seem to remember having a similar problem with coffee but I'm guessing it was because of being burnt out. I'm a bit hazy on that though since its been a long time.
