SX Initial Thoughts
Took one capsule first thing in the morning on empty stomach. Had relatively good focus and appetite suppression all day. Energy wasn't very enhanced. Didn't end up getting to sleep until 5am. Don't know if I can blame SX for this because I did some cardio at around 11pm after I got off work, so that probably effected sleep as well.
Day 2 (Today):
Woke up naturally at 11am, no chance of getting back to sleep. Mouth was dry upon waking. Got a glass of water and consumed another capsule. Energy is better today. I'm walking around and doing random sets of pushups... I feel good. Hopefully I'll sleep better tonight.
So far I'm happy that it doesn't totally kill my appetite like Hyperdrive did where I didn't want to eat anything. It's just like cravings are gone and I eat only nutritious foods.

It's in a league of its own. Simple as that. I don't pimp for AX or any other company, just calling it like I see it.
The only thing I DON'T like about it is that if I take it after 6AM I need NyQuil to get me to sleep anytime before 9:00. It lasts a LONG time, at least for me and I am coming from an ephedrine/caffeine background most wouldn't believe if I posted it. 225lbs too so I'm not exactly dainty.Anabolicminds.com Featured Author

I took 1 cap with SX booster a few hrs later.
Great stuff. I think 2 caps for me would be the extreme sweet spot. But it does cause extreme stim-****, or maybe that was the alcohol...

Im just finishing my 3rd bottle, seeing zero effects now.
definitely have to cycle this.

yeah, i didnt even get through the first bottle. i got to the point were i felt i needed 3 since taking 2 at 7am and wanting to sleep badly at 4pm. i just decided to lay off for about 2 or 3 weeks, and resume then.

Sure the effect of a stimulant may fade with repeated daily use over a long period, its the same with any fat loss or energy pill. However, the fat loss effects should remain constant.
When I dose slimX i do 3 days on one day off. I find the one day without taking a stimulant gives my mind a rest at least. Never felt dependant on it while running it like this

Somehow i think they have a little more business sense than that.

Let me break what I'm saying down for your tiny pea-sized brain, hopefully this time you understand.
If you take SX daily, the feel-good stim effects WILL fade and tolerance WILL develop to those effects!
DOOOO YOU UNDERSTAND NOWWW????

Your talking about the MMA one i assume, which of course has a direct and very real correlation to SX.
The point i took issue with which is clear from above to those of us who dont struggle to tie our own shoelaces, is the one you made implying the reps only said to take it every day to run the bottles down so we buy more.
Now behave yourself you silly little child.
06-08-2009, 09:42 AM
Point is, I simply value the effects of SX more than any possible weight loss from taking the pills daily, which would greatly decrease SX's potency.
Also note, some guys have developed cases of psychosis from taking these everyday for a few weeks much similiar to the same psychosis you'd get more an AMP based drug. This isn't to say SX is tainted, but just shows it's pure potency.
I know SX is marketed as a weight loss supplement first, but it's also marketed second as a super strong long lasting mood enhancing, energy enhancing supplement, which I think is far more unique and valuable.

Having trouble sleeping on this stuff! Taking today off to hopefully get some sleep tonight... Popped 10mg melatonin last night at 12am. Fell asleep at 2am. Woke up at 6:30am... Been sleeping at most six hours a night on this stuff.

You brought up the reps in a negative light implying they want you to use the bottle up asap, but now your saying the majority have nothing to fain financially from this? I think your confused.
SX in my mind is none of the above, its a facilitator for many goals which imo is far more beneficial than having one clear angle.
Now calm down man, we dont want you getting sweat patches coming through your t shirt when you meet your girls friends!
that so wont be cool

Less is more with this badboy.
As for the sleeping, my body adjusted to it pretty damn quickly, stick with it man, depending on your lifestyle etc though.
I mean if your driving a HGV truck all day, perhaps its not the best idea to be up till 3am.
06-08-2009, 10:23 AM
It's not a negative aspect, it's just the way things work.
In fact I remember an AX rep on the AX forum say that the original stimulant-x had too many caps in it for the serving size, and they would last people months, so basically selling a product for a 30day or so price, but when it really will last 60-90 days, isn't too solid of a move if you're trying to make money.

I do however think its a compound thats dose dependant on the individual, i know lucky bastards who only need 0.10mg and they sleep like a baby, i need around 3g's and so on.
Ive tried 5g, 7g and 10g and i was ruined the next day, the hangover destroyed me lol.
Im the same with Phen though.
06-08-2009, 12:54 PM
I'm sorry. It appears I ran out of popcorn and didn't remember to ask if anyone else wanted some! Wow did this thread get...interesting!!! Thanks for being lively, gentlemen. You all have some great questions and great points. With your permission, I'll address a few things from my/our end...
SX is potent. Yes. Anyone who has tried it knows that. Will you get used to it? Over time? Maybe, but not anywhere near as quick as anything else out there. There are those who have been taking SX for over 6 months now with little to no decrease in efficacy. And yes, they have been taking a break - mostly doing a 5 on, 2 off routine. I've been doing that for the past 3 months and STILL have no decrease in it, and I'm probably one of the biggest stim junkies you'll come across - let alone my weight/dose ratio being far greater than most folks, too.
Are we in it to make money? Well, derrr... But the way AX does business isn't ruthless and uncaring. AX is no corporate giant, nor does the business plan incorporate anything that is considered un-customer friendly. SX is a prime example of both business and consumer-minded relations. It's an excellent seller, is sold out even before the next production run is slated, and is most likely makin a few bucks. (No idea - I'm not in to that aspect of AX, nor do I actually care to be.) Its existence is here because YOU asked for it. The original StimX fans wanted a hardcore stim back again, yet complained about the harsh side effects of the original. The current StimX catered to the "lighter" crowd with a hardcore edge, and now SX (dubbed that way instead of being yet another StimX Version 4) satisfies those original fans and a heck of a lot more. The side effects are gone. Everything is cleaned up, more refined, more efficient, and probably even more potent than that original badboy. You spoke, we listened, we did something about it. Simple as that!
Melatonin - 5mg for me is ideal. Too much will have adverse effects and keep you up, so be wary of it. For other sleep aids, Valerian root may help. If Nimbus is still making Abyss, I'll still recommend it as being the absolute BEST sleep aid I've ever tried. Should you start the day with SX and end with a sleep aid? No. If you're doing that, then you're doing something wrong. The vast majority of those who "lost sleep" with SX still report being refreshed the next morning despite having less hours under covers. It's something I've noted from the start, and having a baby at home, I've really really enjoyed it.
Dosing: 1/day, in the morning, only. If that's not enough, either jump to 2 or invest in the SX Boosters which make up for a "half dose" to be taken mid-day to reignite the original dose of SX. 7 days/week? If you want, but the 5 on, 2 off or other methods are good as well. Yes! It's a stim you can actually pulse cycle!!
Hope that helps, boys! If you need anything at all, we're here for ya.

Well, then you'd be real curious if I told you I took it with a fistfull of ephedrine/caffeine?
I don't recommend this and I know I'm FAR from the norm when it comes to stim tolerance but yes, this was what I did. I didn't sleep much that night. Maybe 4-5 hours tops.
Stuff doesn't hit you very hard out of the gate (at least me). Figured it didn't work so I slammed my usual caffeine/ephedrine mix. It kicked in later..

Yeah, i tried 5 caps one day, on top of JP8 and some other stims.
The problem is usually when a company says dont do XYZ its bull****, however with AX ive learnt the hard way, its not lol.

Yeah i remember reading the bottle and it said do not exceed 5 caps, think it may have changed now.
Was doing 3 ok, so thought fk it, 5 it is.
Took my usual 2 scoops JP8 and eph etc. Plus was running lean xtreme.

Okay so it's now day 5 since starting. I took yesterday off; I did 3 on, 1 off, now I'm back on. Slept 12 hours last night lol, felt great after getting 5-6hrs the previous 3 nights. I took the cap in the morning with a bit of food today instead of on an empty stomach like I had been. So far so good, time will tell tonight.
On a side note yesterday I had a headache that would not go away all day. I can't remember the last time I had a headache, so that's unusual.
06-09-2009, 05:58 PM
Don't worry about the headache ... common with nootropics. It'll disappear once you're use to the supplement. I think its just the vasodilation caused by a nootropic and then your body adjusts.
