    Clear Edge for the 18 hour work/school day


    Well, I got mine Saturday and have started dosing 3 2x a day per the bottle. Being a bigger guy, I think I will need to up it to 4 2x a day though.
    Today is Monday, no school. I did notice, about an hour after dosing that when I got to work I could pull it together faster. Usually my attention is not all there, especially after the weekend. Takes me a few hours to find the "groove"...not so today. Placebo?
    Well tomorrow is work and school so le't see how it goes

    Hmm...Placebo usually causes major side effects. Have you experienced any?

    I will try to log AM and PM, either after class or just when I get home from the gym.

    Pre-Clear Edge: A little worn out, stayed up until 11PM watching Cena and HBK win the tag belts Usually takes me an 45min to an hour to dose off. I am also fighting a runny nose that might be a slight cold. Got up around 6:20AM a little groggy.
    Dose: 5 Caps on an empty stomach
    DoseTime: 7:00AM
    Purpose: Work

    Ability to Handle Stress: Excellent
    Alertness: It is now 8:34AM and I feel like I have been awake for hours. I am ready to go.
    Clarity: Great ability to focus.
    Communication: No slurring of my words or losing my train of thought this morning.
    Focus:Had one conference call for about 20 min and took good notes and pointed out some things that others had missed.
    Crash: NA
    Sides: None at all at this point.

    Update 3:31 PM
    About 1:30 PM I got a massive headache. I am not one who is prone to headaches so thought I would mention it here. It was the kind I had to close my eyes, which is even more unusual for me.
    Seems to be about 7 or so hours after dosing..maybe I need to take a smaller dose with me to work for the afternoon...

    Effective time for Clear Edge is around 5-6 hours. You might have had some sort of drop off. No caffeine, right?

    Purpose: Work

    Ability to Handle Stress: Excellent
    Alertness: Didn't actually leave for work until about 8:15 AM and I tell ya waht, I hit the morning commute alot more awake than others. I was weaving and bobbing in and out of every hole...love it. And I did not even have coffee yet. I only drink coffee at work.
    Clarity: EXCELLENT!
    Communication: N/A for today

    I was sick Monday and did not take.
    I also did not take over the weekend.
    I did notice a slight feeling of slowness in me, even though I selpt 9 hours on Sunday, the first day after not taking. I know I was sick but it was something else...not a physical kind of slowness...more like a mental type.
    Anyone else?

    Pre-Clear Edge:Feel great. Had a nice resetful weekend in bed since I was sick
    Dose: 5 Caps on an empty stomach
    Dose Time: 7:10AM
    Purpose: Work

    Ability to Handle Stress: Excellent
    Alertness: good as usual
    Sides: None.

    OK, I was in a rush this morning and forgot to take all my supps. Today we are going to log how I feel without Clear Edge.

    I have been tongue tied several times this morning already. Went to a meeting and lost my train of thought twice. I never realized I was this "groggy" in the morning. Generally just feel tired and spacey, even after 4 cups of coffee.

    The GF is on the way here with my supps

    Definite difference that I can tell without the Clear Edge. I am not saying that this stuff gives you all kinds of energy. What it does is allows you to keep that "edge" even after you have reached that 12th hour of pounding your brain.
    I took it about an hour before class. My general "dead and burnt" feeling after work was gone after about 2 hours. I just felt more aware and my thought process was more focused.

    Pre-Clear Edge:Feel great. Had a nice resetful weekend in bed since I was sick
    Dose: 5 Caps on an empty stomach
    Dose Time: 5:00 PM
    Purpose: Class

    Ability to Handle Stress: Excellent
    Alertness: Good
    Sides: None

    This class involved us setting up a server with "for free" PBX software through a router to bridge with a server running Cisco Call Manager and then connect then all to a PSTN line...I have no idea what the hell we were doing but I was able to keep my wits about me. In the end I learned that freeware is not always good

    Pre-Clear Edge:Feel good. Concentration is there and focus is still noticable when I dose
    Dose: 5 Caps on an empty stomach
    Dose Time: 7:05AM
    Purpose: Work
    Ability to Handle Stress: None today..it is Friday and payday. All is good in the world of work for once.
    Alertness: Good
    Sides: None at all

    Will not be going to school since my birthday is next week I figure I would go celebrate early this weekend versus late next weekend. I hate mid-wek birthdays....

    Missed dosing yesterday, got a late start and dashed out without it.

    Today, I was feeling kinda groggy prior to dosing but about an hour later all is sharp and clear. MOre awaer of what is going on and be able to focus. I don't feel more awake, just more aware.
    This product has no sides and works as advertised everytime.
    Should I mix it up by upping my dose from 5 to something like 7-8?

    Caffeine isn't necessary, just some people (including me) find it to potentiate the CE very well.

    sean...most people find the sweet spot to be around 5-6, with diminishing returns after that.

    WOW..I caught some intestinal virus and was on my back for the 14th till Sunday. Sucks cause the 14th was my birthday. I coulnd't keep anything down at all, whether it was liquid, solid, or between the both...it all came out one way or another. I actually had to get some antibiotics to get rid of it. Took them Saturday night and by sunday night I felt TONS better.
    Anyway..enough with the pleasantries...

    Dosing with caffeine....don't have to but I personally fells it adds a synergistic effect and is quite good.
    I tood 6 this AM and feel great. good focus, attention span is there. I flew threw 3 days of backloged work in about 1.5 hours and was able to approach everything clearly and concisely (real word??). This stuff is amazing to me.
    I am gonna dose about an hour before the gym tonight and see how that goes specifically as it pertains to working out and level of concentration. I don't think I have touched on that. Mostl;y have been just discussing how I am able to keep my level of detail and attnetion up even throught the 18 hour days, which this has helped immensely.
    Thanks Dsade for the testing again .

    ok...the basics:
    Pre-Clear Edge:Feel great. Had a nice resetful weekend in bed since I was sick
    Dose: 5 Caps on an empty stomach
    Dose Time: 5:00 PM
    Purpose: Class

    Ability to Handle Stress: Excellent
    Alertness: Good
    Sides: None

    The gym was an intense experience last night. I dosed about 30 minutes before the gym and I hit the squats really hard. By my second set I was in a zone and was able to zero in and just pump away at the squats. I HIGHLY recommend this for the gym....

    You know...I finally grabbed some more CE for myself, and I did not realize how great I feel on it until i added it back in.

    I hate to say this, but I think I might have become a Clear Edgeaholic!!!!
