Hey Everyone -
I'm new here. Found the site while looking for info about Spirodex and glad I found it.
I wanted to start my own blog about it as well.
Some info: I work out every day, sometimes dividing workouts into two sessions, morning and evening. I NEED stimulants to live. Period. And will not apologize for it I saw an ad for Spirodex as a "mood enhancer" and stimulant. Let me also say that I LOVE Aderol - when I could get it, which is not very often. My work makes me crazy, angry and very moody. So I was looking for something that would be similar to Aderol. To those of you not familiar with Aderol, it is a prescription drug often given to sufferers of AD/HD. But it's effects on me were a general "happy" feeling, along with increased energy and appetite suppression. Spirodex seemed like it might fit that bill, so I spent the $40 and am giving it a try. I am following the directions on the bottle. One tablet. I began two days ago, and am currently on day three.
Day One: I took the tablet at 11:00 AM on my way to work and noticed the effects almost immediately. At work, during a particularly bad, hectic day, I was more jovial, and yet calm. Co-workers noticed this as well. An unintended benefit is the appetite suppression. I don't really need that, but am certainly not complaining. The effects lasted ALL DAY. There was no problem falling asleep. No "jitters".
Day Two: Yesterday I had the day off, but took the tablet again at 11:00 AM. The same effects. I re-arranged my room, did some long-put-off chores, and spent some quality time with my neglected cats. At the gym I was more focused, though not necessarily any stronger. I have stopped taking pre-workout drinks because, honestly, I cannot afford, protein power, pre-workout powder AND Spirodex. So for now it's just protein and Spiro. Overall I am noticing that same "happy peaceful" feeling I got when I took Aderol, along with increased energy and initiative to take on other tasks. So far, so good.
One more thing. I am trying Spirodex not to increase my power or strength, but mostly as a mood modifier and stimulant. Pretty much to keep my job. So there won't be much here about workout or training effects, unless I see that they are being positively or negatively influenced.
More to come.

Day Three: Yesterday was a regular work day. I took the tablet at 10:00 and went for my cardio at the gym. I was more focused than usual, and better - more motivated. I ran an extra 20 minutes on the treadmill. Then off to work. The whole ride there I was on a high, which does not come often anymore, even after a good run. At work the energy continued, along with the general feeling of being able to take whatever people throw at me. The latter is often a problem, and would take Spiro even if that were all it offered.... The appetite suppression continued as well, and am having to "force" myself to consume my usual slim-down intake of 1700-2000 calories per day. In the evening after work I returned to the gym for a leg workout, with enough energy to get through.
Day Four (today): A repeat of yesterday. The only difference is that I was a bit hungrier than the past few days. Spirodex and cardio work in the AM, non-homicidal at work, and then a night session with shoulders and abs.
Let me know please if I am forgetting any pertinent info here.

I personally wasnt too impressed with spirodex, i got a few samples at the Mr. O. It works well for a couple hours, but Slim Xtreme (before it was discontinued) was more potent in my opinion.

Agreed. There are FAR more effective fat-burners out there, if I wanted one. But the mood enhancing effects are what I am shooting for, and Spiro is delivering.
My experiences with fat burners are good and bad. I like the increased metabolism, but don't like sweating like a pig all day. It makes inter-personal relations at work awkward.

Day Four: Took one tablet at noon before gym and then work. Similar results during workout, i.e. increased motivation, great focus. There is approx. 175mg of caffeine in a tablet, which is good. Remember I have stopped taking pre-workout powder, which was N.O Explode, while I'm giving Spiro a try. SO the caffeine is necessary and welcome.
Great effects at work: energetic, focused and calm, to the point of actually being nice to people. The "mood enhancing" component is what I was after, and still happy with. And today was another chaotic day.
Appetite suppression factor seems to be fading. But I was not after that, per say. We'll see if it goes away entirely.
The directions call for 1-2 tablets per day, and thus far I've only been taking one.
