Be open, it allows those with similar situations/historiesn, that can relate but don't want to admit it, a chance to see your experience.

I will say one something about one supplement that I ran out of and I notice a major difference with: CoQ10
I was taking 400mg-600mg per day and ran out about 10 days ago and I have noticed that there has been a drop off in athletic performance, sleep time (was needing 5 hours and now need 6.5 and rising as my coq10 levels drop further), fat loss, and a few other things. I will say that I am also feeling a tad more fatigued, but it's not drastic... but noticeable.
I am still feeling very mentally acute, but not as uppity as when using the Andro Drive and CoQ10. I am getting a bottle tomorrow after I load up (megadose) these expired *** zip-melts.
I am really going to re-assess my supplement spending right now. Andro Drive, CoQ10, MST lineup, Strive, Power Shock, and vitamin D3 and coenzymate B complex are the products that really shine for me. I want my CoQ10 levels back up ASAP before my bday (3 days)!

FOG, have you tried MST's Ultra Cordyceps V02? Seems to me this may be better in regards to athletic performance, than CoQ10 alone. I've been trying to cut down on supps as well myself though.

I am 99.9% positive that I have a CoQ10 deficiency, as after reloading on 2 days of VERY high dosed ubiquinONE (even though it's less bioavailable), my vision has improved, my mood has balanced a bit more, and I have more energy.

I can piece together the effectiveness of the Andro Drive and CoQ10, finally. I was able to function and detox so fast from opiates after being diligent about taking 800mg of ubiquinol per day for 2 months while on Suboxone and into the withdrawals. With ubiquinol's ability to deliver oxygen to refresh every organ, I was surprised that the withdrawals were COMPLETELY over in about 7-8ish days. After that, each day I counted as a blessing and was almost expecting PAWS (post acute withdrawal syndrome) or some other withdrawal effects to flare up, but no. I felt reborn.
After spending the past 14 days re-assessing things, researching, and deliberating I have concluded:
Andro Drive + CoQ10 = my ultimate combo
Andro Drive = Diligence, vigilance, mental energy, mental connection, require less sleep, more vivid sleep, better lucidity in and out of consciousness
Ubiquinol @ 600mg per day (upping it to 800mg/ 400mg with breakfast and 400mg with brunch) = More energy, decreased DOMS, decreased need for sleep, positive feelings, vigilance, enhanced vision and mental clarity, profound endurance and stamina
Combined: 1 + 1 = approximately 10 as far as synergy

Still need to get some AD. Very glad to see you doing well FOG. Can't wait, I'm eager to get my hands on AD.

FoG is onto something w/ CoQ10...
Been on AD for 10 days now, was at Costco and bought some CoQ10 b/c it was on sale. Got home and took ~400-500mg dose and BAM!. Not sure how long it took to kick it but I suddenly felt like I had way too much energy. Almost like a dose of EC just kicked in.

^ Instant surge of Adenosine triphosphate? LOw CoQ10 levels will make it harder to convert food into energy and have high energy readily accessible.
Did you get ubiquinone or ubiquinol?

Well... Disappointed to say that I ran out of Andro Drive during a rough patch and am now picking up the pieces. Just got back on Andro Drive a couple days ago.
Pregnenolone has also been widely reported to make people feel happier. In fact, its well-known mood-heightening qualities are almost legendary. As Dr. Ray Sahelian, MD states in his wonderful little book, Pregnenolone: Nature’s Feel-Good Hormone:
- "I am 100 percent convinced that taking pregnenolone leads to changes in awareness and alertness. I noticed an improved visual clarity...within an hour of dosing…a mellow, steady, persistent feeling of well-being...had imperceptibly come on...Flowers seemed...brighter and prettier...my attention focused on the architecture of the homes...I started noticing the patterns of the stones, the shapes of the windows, doorways, porticos and other details...the palm trees...appeared Caribbean island-like picturesque. Everything seemed more beautiful and intriguing. I felt a sense of child wonder, that everything was okay. How special and enchanting life could be!"

I'm positive that at least for me, long term use of AD would only be beneficial.
Fortunately, pregnenolone is amazingly safer than other steroids. Pregnenolone researchers working with both human and animal subjects since the 1940s have consistently commented on pregnenolones virtual absence of toxicity. For example, the classic review article on pregnenolone by Henderson and colleagues in 1950 states: 'It [pregnenolone] has an extremely low order of toxicity; [it] has not shown any adverse effects on endocrine [hormone] physiology ....'

Well I've decided to give it a shot now. Started taking AD 2 days ago, along with AH at 3 caps. I'm on TRT so I'm testing to see where the AH will bring my DHT levels to. Test alone doesn't convert enough to DHT for me, so I need to supplement with it since I don't like using test creams (which dramatically raise DHT levels).
I will report back on how I feel on androDrive, but keep in mind that I also started androHard with it, so I'll be feeling both's effects.

By the way, a few users whom report feeling spaced out from the Andro Drive is due to excess normalization of neurotransmitters from taking too much pregenolone. I was just digging for some feedback and literature in some other forums and came across this:
Additional background factoids:
1) Pregnenolone is bound to sulfate in the human body which is the long term storage form of pregnenolone.
2) The NMDA receptors regulate all neurotransmitters, not just a few.
3) Supplementing with too much pregnenolone results in "excess normalization", which results in "spacey" feelings, not feelings of depression, anxiety, aggression, OCD, or any other symptom of neurotransmitter excess or deficit

Although pregnenolone is inhibitory to GABA receptors, I find it odd that I was able to reduce the dose of Librium (GABA-A agonist) and actually feel better.
