"Stimulant Break" Necessary, Science or BroScience?

Basically you misread what I wrote. What I stated was when the adrenal glands a.) shut down totally and b.) don't produce enough cortisol and/or aldosterone it can occur. Actually two forms of it, maybe I should've defined it a little better as adrenal insufficiency (fatigue). Anyway everyone's body reacts to certain stims different than others which merits the fact as I stated in my post that I personally do take breaks from stimulant pre-workouts etc. Pure plan and simple too much of anything will cause sometime to occur. Yet, stims basically fool the adrenal glands to put out more adrenaline which eventually for long-term usage can lead one to dependence, as the adrenals down-regulate and function poorly without the use of a stimulant.CTDLABS Product Ambassador & Board Rep

The above is my own opinion and does not reflect the opinion of PES

So the consensus seems to be that stimulants do not cause adrenal fatigue... But is adrenal fatigue an actual condition caused by other factors other than stimulant use?

So it'd seem tolerance is not depleting your body of something, causing adrenal fatigue or anything of that nature. It's your body building a tolerance to something it's exposed to on a regular basis.

From the mayo clinic site:
Proponents of the adrenal fatigue diagnosis claim this is a mild form of adrenal insufficiency caused by chronic stress. The unproven theory behind adrenal fatigue is that your adrenal glands are unable to keep pace with the demands of perpetual fight-or-flight arousal. As a result, they can't produce quite enough of the hormones you need to feel good. Existing blood tests, according to this theory, aren't sensitive enough to detect such a small decline in adrenal function — but your body is.

I see a ton of people on here and ask for medical advice instead of going to the doctor. What's even worse is people reply to them, telling them to self-medicate with supplements. I don't understand that. When I have a medical issue, the last place I want to ask questions is an internet message board.

The .2mg/kg dose of yohimbine...Shouldn't that be spread out throughout the day instead of taken all at one time?.

If adrenal fatigue is as bad or as common as some people pan it out to be here on AM then I should be the poster boy for it ( for the record it's being blown totally out of proportion ) and with that being said there are way way more stressors in life than just putting stimulants in your body that can cause these so called symptoms of adrenal fatigue.
T-bone nailed it with the first post.

If I was making a list of terms that get misused the most on exercise forums, "adrenal fatigue" would probably only be topped by "synergy" and "overtraining"

Cool thread, except the adrenal fatigue rubbish.
