All day energy
Just a quick one... Keen on thoughts for any all day energy supps are worth looking at. I'm finding myself to be lacking energy during the day, which in turn effects my focus. I get 6-8 hours sleep per night, but with my travel schedule for work it isn't always consistent and perfect - and there's not much I can do about that at the moment.
Coffee just doesn't seem to do it for me any more, in fact it sometimes seems to make me more sleepy (is that even possible lol).
Would appreciate any thoughts. I do understand that nothing beats a quality and full nights sleep, but unfortunately that isn't always possible.

dont want to sound like a shill, but honestly apill gives me hours of energy. i easily can consume 600-900mg of caffeine a day, but i've noticed when i substitute early morning caffeine with , i dont consume that much caffeine yet still have energy to get through the day.

you gained a tolerance that will (if it has not already) lead to adrenal shutdown. your best bet is to lay off all stims for a few days, or at least cut back on them and then up the dosage again. do mini cycles 3 on 1 off, 5 on 2 off, etc
btw, stick to coffee or tea. its much healthier.

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

Would something like Revamp help me out? (sorry cant post a link with my post count)
This probably sounds silly... but is there something for energy that is stim free perhaps? Im ultimately talking mental energy here.

Revamp works very well. I use 2 caps during a stim break and 1 cap while on stims to keep my tolerance down. I would also suggest a break from the stimulants. For mental things, I like ALCAR a lot for focus if that's what you're looking for. Haven't used focus xt or anything like a lot recommend, but I'm sure someone will come in and give you better suggestions.

overuse of stimulants is common and can cause adrenal shutdown in anybody. addison's disease is a rare disease that does involve adrenal shutdown. its generally an auto immune disease or caused by an infection. adrenal shutdown does not equate to addisons disease. i dont think you could strain your adrenal glands enough to get addison's disease.

As far as all day energy...well nothing like 3x doses of EC stack every 3-4 hours...lets say he starts his day (and dose) at 8am, dosing every 4 hours the energy will be there until 8-10pm .
Now for a more domestic approach he could also try Focus-XT and Gluconolactone much easier on people that are not that stim tolerant, but still want some good energy and focus !

I've had this part of my daily for the last couple years and it is nothing short of amazing. It not only helps with general energy, but it's great for stress and helps keep you clear. Don't look for a caffeine buzz, but rather a simple clear energy that just makes it feel like you are really rested.
3:1 ratio and you'll need to tweak the dosage. Anything about 250mg a dose is too much for me making me a little hyper. I take 225mg twice a day.

Dexaprine = for the win.
It utilizes both short and long half life stimulants to give you constant energy over an 8-12 hour period. Nothing like it on the market!

Alphamine. kicks in right away with morning dose. I dosed one scoop upon waking and was alert practically right away. Then taking another scoop later in the day, then "if"needed another scoop later. And the taste is amazing.

Companies are starting to catch on because you can find it in more and more products. I remember when I first started taking it, nobody knew what I was talking about and now my local vitamin places carry upwards of 10 brands.
