i took a 1000mg pill before workouts. got it because it was cheaper and had more in the bottle than the 500mg.

I guess I get pumps really bad or something. I had it horribly bad last EPI cycle and im on day 2 (20mg) today and it kicked in about 2 hours after my first dose. My pumps last all day long and dont go away. I have some bulk on the way but have the gnc 500mg right now and have taken about 4g throughout the day and my back is still killing me. Im gonna try like 5g when I get up in the morning to see if that helps.

Maybe it's not back pumps.. As far as I know, they tend to happen when you are doing something, i.e., pressing heavy weight in the gym.

I take 6g split up to 2g three times a day, But I also take potassium gluconate too because it helps the taurine do it's job.

I took 5 grams thiis morning and it seems to be helpng like 60-70%. Is it ok to take more than that? Whats the most you should take in a day?

Once I have back pumps, it takes 10-12g per day to combat the pumps. Once they're gone or under control for about 4-5 days, you can back off to the dosage to what BAMA said.
Bulk taurine powder is cheaper and is tasteless. Fits in nicely with shakes, BCAAs, etc etc

I take 2g pre and post workout and it does help with back pumps. Esp. on deadlift days.
It's dirt cheap so experiment with what works best for you.

When I was on Epi I was taking about 4 grams pre-wo. I was mixing it with Xtend for the added BCAAs. This really helped with the back pumps, but they only really got bad on two occasions.
Good luck with the remedy bro!
