Yea it usually effects people for 3-4 days, try taking your dose with a small meal, that usually takes care of it!

So, just to give a small alphamax update on my end. I came off a 6 week 11-oxo cycle and started my PCT on Thursday, so it's been just over 1 week.
I have been taking about 250 mg of 7-oxo DHEA in a home-brew transdermal solution each day. I take half of this dose in the morning and half at night.
I have been taking 4 pills of alphamax around the same times as the 7-oxo.
With the Alphamax I am also taking some 250 mg. 20% forskolin pills - so 50 mg forskolin twice a day. Total including the alphamax forskolin - 150 mg/day.
I was thinking of going with 100 mg/day, but I have some cheap 20% pills so I'm just using them up. For some reason, I have no adverse reactions whatsoever to the forskolin - which I expected. I've taken it before and never had any issues at all.
I am also taking 3 grams of DAA in the morning.
On the 11-oxo I went from 257-259 to 248-249 in 6 weeks. In the past week, my morning weight measurements have been between 246-249, mostly around 247.
I have noticed a difference when I look in the mirror however, and between the last week of the 11-oxo and this past week, I have lost 1 inch on my waist. I don't know if this was something that was in process and just appears to be over the past two weeks, but I suspect it was just a sudden drop due to the consistent lack of calories.
Something else has happened. My bodyfat scale has been reading about 44-45% bodyfat in the morning (crazy, I know - I started at around 55%!!!) - but in the past 3 days, suddenly it just started reading 40-41% in the mornings. No huge change in weight, just lower BF on the scale, smaller waist, and changes in the mirror.
I am wondering if the arimistane is having a slight diuretic effect that may be causing the sudden loss in bf % on the scale...but so far I am pleased and already thinking of ordering another bottle of alphamax to extend this to 8 weeks.

The armistane really helps shed water weight and lean you out so your results seem right in line! Eight weeks is definitely the sweet spot so if you can, run it the whole eight weeks

If you need a testosterone boost at 20 something is medically or psychologically wrong and you should talk to your doctor.

Time for an update. It's been 4 days and today is Monday, so today is the first heavy workout I've had considering I don't go to the gym on the weekends. I've noticed already my arms and shoulders look for cut than usual along with my abs. I was able to push through the weights I usually struggle with today with no problem. Got through my sets with ease keeping everything heavy. Pump was good too but I just started taking Flight pre workout (which is the jam by the way). Looks like it's going to be a great 8 weeks and I'm thinking strength and size will increase along with fat loss. I already have about 11-12% body fat. I weigh around 176 right now, so things are looking up. Keep you all updated.

Quick question, guys. I've just noticed today I've been a lot more irritable then usual. I can't seem to figure out if the people I work with are idiots or the alphamax is just kicking in and the aggresivness is going up. Not a terrible thing but I wanted to know does this last all the way through the cycle or does it ease down a little?

I have noticed the same thing. My gf had a conversation about what to eat for dinner last night, and it was either go to the store or eat out. I thought we were going to the store after that conversation and when I was ready to leave she said, "I thought we were eating out?" I said fine and went to do work...15 minutes later she came back and said, maybe we should go to the store? I got so frustrated I couldn't believe it. She was a little shocked haha - good to have the alphamax to blame it on.

Just another update on this - after 2.5 weeks I'm starting to wonder if I should run this for another 4 weeks. My mood, aggression, and anger level are very high right now. I am normally a pretty intense and aggressive person (I don't see myself this way, but almost everyone close to me dose, particularly female friends who often tell me I intimidate them) - but my gf asked me today if I am taking something "different" than normal. She knows I take a lot of stuff, but doesn't know what I'm taking, when, or what it does. I've been edgy, argumentative, and aggressive with people in a way that isn't normal for me. Personally, I feel very pissy and moody.
This is both good and bad. It means the product is definitely doing stuff. No doubt it improves sleep, makes me more aggressive, etc. - but it also means that it may not be a good fit for someone like me.
I've read up on L-Dopa and I think the Mucuna may be the main problem in this formula for me. I guess it can make things pretty intense and make certain people pretty angry (possibly me), and this product has a pretty good dose of it - everything in it is dosed well.
My hope is that I level out in the next couple days. I am also pretty tired over the last few days. This stuff definitely improves sleep, and maybe my body just needs more of it now, since it is finally getting good sleep that it may not have had for a while. If I level out over the next week, I'm ordering another bottle because this stuff DEFINATELY has an effect. If the anger/moodiness gets much worse, well then - I can't be a moody biatch for another 4 weeks - I'm in sales and I also don't want to lose all my friends and I know I'm already enough to put up with (Maybe some would be OK, but not all).
Again, I want to be clear, I attribute this to the L-Dopa and I don't think EVERYONE will have this reaction, just that I do and I think it does demonstrate that the product has some powerful effects. The aggression increase is also a good thing as much as the moodiness that came with it (in my case) may be bad.
Or, as I said before, maybe I'm just a pissy guy and I am just blaming the Alphamax

HIT4ME, have you tried taking your doses with food?. I've read some people have issues with L-Dopa like headaches and mood problems and this is sometimes alleviated if you take it with a heavy meal. It will still work just as well but you won't "feel" these effects as much. I don't know maybe you mentioned how you take your doses but I didn't look....This is just a quick reply with a possible solution.

I have a quick question. If I'm not mistaken I think I heard someone say by week two they felt that the armistane had kicked in. I'm not too savvy on each individual ingredient in Alphamax, but what would that do/entail or what results would be obvious? Probably a stupid question but I thought I would ask.

Dry joints and peeing more are two signs that most find when that starts kicking in. Leaning out will also start to get noticeable as you're shedding water weight.
