Newbie to this forum but been lifting for about 4-5 years now, I have tried alot of other pre-workouts (Jack3d,NO-X,Assault etc.) and have been working with DS Craze, At first I used 1 scoop and had the best feeling in the gym of any pre I have ever took, smashed PB's in every weight I lifted but now over the last week or so I felt that 1 scoop wasn't pushing me like it was previously so upped my scoop to about 1 & 3/4 which is ok in the gym (I take it about 6pm) but when I leave the gym the next morning i seem to be feeling like crazy anxiety worries over the stupidest little stuff which is completely unlike me and nothing i have ever encountered in the past with any other pre I have taken - My sleep is ok but wake up a few times in the night, Has anyone else experienced this? And would you recommend i change pre-workout or just try 1 scoop again and see what happens?

When I take strong stims, sometimes I'll get a feeling of approaching dread. It might be something I forgot, it might be a nebulous insecurity that my unadulterated mind keeps buried or isn't concerned with because it truly is unimportant. The key for me is to understand that the anxiety is a side effect of the stim...usually taking 15 seconds to consider the true cause of these feelings (stims) is enough to make the gloominess pass. If your emotional sides are more debilitating than that, I think I would try another stim.
Considering it sounds like you're building a tolerance to the Craze stims, it sounds like you should cycle off for a bit anyway. I think that when you up your dose to maintain a certain level of desired effects, you're still opening yourself up to more possible sides and the risk/reward profile becomes less appealing.

Yea that happens. Its because of the confidence craze gives you. Once that confidence is gone, you feel much lower than what you just were.
It happens with all stims, but much more with Craze for me.

I've been taking craze for months and can relate to what you are saying.
My recommendation is to take Craze at .5 to 1 scoop PWO. The goal is to give yourself a smooth sensation of focus. If you are feeling "stimmed" then you went to far.
I consider Craze as a "light stim" product. The goal here is to increase focus, which makes it different from products like jacked, marinade, maximize, etc.
Once you get the feel of how to use it correctly you will likely drop the dose and lose the sides. At least that's what happened to me. It's a great product at low dose.

Also, if you are after a stim feeling and still want to use craze, a good solution is to take .5 craze, and stack with 200mg caffeine cap plus 25mg ephedrine (found in bronkaid). This has been a great combo for me and delivers a solid workout.
