I definitely recommend ALCAR, the various forms of carnitine do make it tough on a consumer though. As I like PLCAR ALCAR and LCLT quite a bit, so I have a tough time with it. I drink Compete also which has additional forms of carnitine. It just gets confusing as to which carnitine version is THE best, but I definitely would use ALCAR.

Are you finding it best at a certain time of day... e.g pre-workout? Or do spread it throughout the day? I've seen recommendations of 750-1000mg, 2-3 times a day.

I'm like you, didn't feel too much the first time I used it but people on here got me to try it again. Sometimes I love ALCAR but sometimes I don't feel any, I don't notice too much of fat loss with it either...

I usually take 250 - 500 mg of Alcar for the mental boost. It is a staple for me.

Try taking it everyday at 1-2g rather than sporadically and make sure you are also dosing before doing something mentally stimulating like study etc.

Would it be OK in the morning or pre-workout, if taking/Forskolin/Alpha T2? Any potential issues there? Seems whether taken on empty stomach or not doesn't matter, according to Coops thread.

OK, makes sense. I think 1g first thing AM, and then another 1g pre-workout is going to be easiest schedule for me to maintain.

OP I love ALCAR. I usually either dose first thing in the AM, pre-workout, or before a meal containing carbs. I also combine most of the time with a stim and/or Na-RALA depending on the situation.
I actually just dosed 1g this morning with my Alphamine and AT2. It has been awhile since I used ALCAR, but I think I am feeling it this morning.

I seriously love ALCAR. It's a staple for me. I dose 1000-1500mg depending on day. 1500mg with 500mg tyrosine in the mornings takes away that morning sluggish feeling and alerts me within 15 minutes. I notice when I don't take it and miss it.

Count me in for using ALCAR every day without fail. Such a versatile supplement, and it's very affordable. I use pre workout, whenever I study, whenever I go to class, and even at work.

As with most supplements, is ALCAR something you adapt to after prolonged use and therefore no longer see the benefits?
