No one is attempting to push a product out for him. It was a kind recommendation for him & tip for future reference. By the way my name isn't REP EatMoar so if you could as in I did for you I addressed you by your name.CTDLABS Product Ambassador & Board Rep

Adrenal Blowout is bs? Well, let me tell you that when the adrenal glands don't function properly it's called Addison disease. Thus, although your mates take stim for up to 3 months what they don't realize is the fact that if they continue is that it leads to high cortisol levels. I myself personally can't do the constant intake of caffeine & pre-workouts for that long of a time period as your mates have. I usually take a break from the stims. But, I as well use to take take pre-workouts 3-4 days at a time a week (range from 200mg-300mg). It had gotten to a point where the pwo wern't working for me at all & I would drink a high carb protein shake 45 min before taking my pre-workout just to give me that extra perk of energy in the gym. I've taken an assortment of various one's, also it depends on how much caffeine and other stims are contained in a pre-workout. For instance I once had a sample of Razor8 which contains 400mg of caffeine & it didn't do squat for me at all.

I understand the need to have a break to not develop a dependency or a tolerance.
So is everyone saying NO caffeine at all for a week or two or just cutting out all pre workouts and maybe keeping a morning coffee is ok to do here and there

I used to believe stimulants could cause adrenal fatigue.
I also used to believe in Santa Claus.

All I asked was a question of how long is enough for a break and can you have one coffee a day

You build a tolerance to stims.
Take a stim break.
A cup of coffee ed will not destroy your stim break.
Easy enough right?

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 morewhich eventually for long-term usage can lead one to dependence, as the adrenals down-regulate and function poorly without the use of a stimulant.

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.
