    Hey guys I'm new to Alphamine. I guess I wish to be an addict like y'all. Ha.
    Anyhow, what's your best advice on dosing ?

    I'm 5'6" 155. I have a fairly high stim tolerance:
    I had taken white flood/green mag/PW(BCAA's) for the past 3 years 6 days/week.
    Since then I've fairly enjoyed these pre workouts:
    FocusXT
    Prodigy (PNI)
    Novem

    So here's my inquiry. I work out week days before work @ 6am. When/what dosing do I take Alphamine? From what I've gathered it's best to take it separate from any other stims. what are your best combos if any ? I also have been crashing at 2pm since taking 1 scoop pre workout the first 3 days. Any advice appreciated. Thanks !

    Go 2 scoops pre-workout followed by 1 scoop later in the day whenever you feel you want or need.

    Look into High Volume to go with Alphamine.

    Hi guys, Ben here.

    I am booking a photo shoot in which means before I have even confirmed the date I have hopped back on Alphamine.

    Chilled Alphamine first thing in the morning before I even get out of bed. No need for the snooze button on the alarm clock.

    When cherry limeade arrives I am going to cry with joy.

    I don't care if I am bulking at the time. I am drinking it.

    Speaking of Cherry Limeade any eta? I have been off alphamine for a few months, hoping to jump back on when CL flavor drops. I do have Norcodrene coming to make the wait easier.

    Does anyone else feel like they're "drugged" from this stuff. After 4 days of use, I discontinued & now I'm feeling fine once again. Better energy Actually. I was getting severe hunger, headaches, and anxiety was increased greatly.
    I was dosing at 1.5 scoops @ 8 am (pre workout). Then another scoop @ 1:30 PM. And I would be crashing severely @ work 2 hours later. I have about 60 scoops left so any thoughts ? I would assume this could be side effects of yohimbe but rather hear it from experienced users thanks !

    Wow...first time I heard that someone has had a bad experience but again, everyone's makeup is different so the response will vary. But it very well could have been the Yohimbe. Not too many people can tolerate it but fortunately, I'm not one of them.

    It's really confusing to me as well. I'm disappointed that I had such negative response but no pre workouts nor thermos have made me react that way thus far. Ive used the whole Controlled Labs line(green Mag, White flood purpnwraath).
    I have weird feelings from Focus XT as well. So it's got to be some ingredient that my CNS does. Not handle well.

    Could be a combination of yohimbine and choline. It's strange, I've never had problems with Alphamine, but this time round if I take a scoop in the morning I'm slight jittery for the entire day and can't sleep.

    What other supplements were you taking?

    The reaction may have been from a combination rather than Alphamine itself I.e. yohimbe with tyrosine.

    Nothing else. Could be because I over did yohimbine for a few weeks whilst following a severe calorie defecit. I've taken a couple of woods off and took less than half a scoop today and it seems to be OK. I may just need to increase dose slowly so my body is able to tolerate it. Alternative is to buy the EU version, but what to do with the US version I already have!

    My question was mainly directed at ikeNball as he said he is noticing the same from Focus XT so I wondered if he has been dosing them close together.

    Yours sounds like you were using too high a dose for your tolerance.

    I'm thinking it had to have been from the synergy of other Supps (or maybe my body reacting to me stopping them just a day before the Alphamine).
    Thermos: GAT Jet Fuel
    Fat Free (I forget which company)
    Other:
    Green Tea caps
    Fish oil
    Orange Triad
    Paragon (natty test boost) by PNI
    And the pre's:
    Condense
    Focus XT
    Prodigy by PNI
    Novem

    BCAA's
    EAA by PNI
    Xtend by Scivation

    Any clues ? Thoughts ? Much appreciated

    Why don't you stop everything else and start on a low dose. I've started on half a scoop and it hadn't caused me problems. After a few days I'll move to 3/4 of a scoop and then to a scoop.

    Good advice. I would try this as it will pay off in the long run and you can get the most out of the product that way. You will thank him later!

    hey guys, what would you choose during a lean bulk along with Anabeta Elite: Alphamine or Erase?

    I've read a couple of reviews stating that EP dries you out nicely but water retention will return soon after you drop it, so there is no substantial fat burning effect, just water flushing out of the body. So I guess Alphamine would be a better option.

    Has anyone already stacked ABE + Alphamine with great results?

    I actually stacked all three a while back (ABE + Erase Pro + Alphamine) during a lean bulk. If I had to choose one, I would go with Erase Pro with AnaBeta Elite.

    so you actually felt EP helping you lose fat during the bulk?

    PS: forgot to mention I got approx. <8 % body fat

    I wouldn't say it helped me lose fat as that wasn't the goal as I was lean bulking. I did feel though it did help keep me tighter and harder then I would have been if I hadn't been using it.

    Are you looking to just gain a few extra lean pounds to your frame?

    yep, that's my goal. started my first ever cycle with ABE (old formula) and was planning to add something after the initial 4 weeks. However, as I'm prone to joint issues, I was looking for alternatives, such as Alphamine, which is said to be a good thermogenic as well.

    The new Erase Pro is much easier on the joints.
