    xenadrine?

    hey guys
    i recently read that xenadrine should only be taken 3 days a week because of the body's tendancy to make a tolerance to it. meaning that the body will adjust to it or become use to it and therefore you would have to up the dosage more and more. is this true?? thanks

    I can see your body getting use to it for prolonged use. Like months and months of it. Other then that I wouldn't be worried.

    i just got the ingredients in xenadrine and was wondering what each thing does or is good for. the ingredients are as follows:
    1. pantothenic acid (vitamin b5) 40mg.
    2. bitter orange 85mg.
    3. mahuang 335mg.
    4. guarana extract 910mg.
    5. white willow bark extract 105mg.
    6. ginger root 50mg.
    7. proprietary thermosynergist blend 225mg.

    i think i know that b5 helps fight acne? also, i think that mahuang is the stimulant or substitute for ephedrine. what about the rest? and what about the two i mentioned if i am wrong? thanks.

    You will most definetaly build tollerance to any thermogenic.
    The best way to keep the effects from use in these products is to cycle them. I think that cycleing wiil vary from person to person.
    If you start to loose the effects , take a week or even 2 weeks off from usage. This is what works for me. I only take thermogenics for the BUZZ before i go to the gym.
    Increasing the dossage does not seem to help the effects for me.

    if you have to keep increasing the dose every week or so because you can't feel it anymore (no matter how long you have been taking it), i would advise getting off...if you can't do it cold turkey...at least start lowering the dose until you aren't on it anymore...if you stay on for an extended period of time (and this does depend on the person...) you will crash when you finally do stop and it is not a quick or easy crash either

    2 weeks on, 1 week off.

    I've never built up a tolerance, in fact I still feel the same buzz as the first time I took it.

    You need to cycle these regardless ... you should not take thermos longer than 8 weeks in a row... they will start breaking down muscle tissue ... I also think taking 2 different kinds during the week... this change in chemicals will keep the ingredients active .... something like ( Thermbuterol and Hydroxycut ) these have seperate active ingredients .... the body will not be able to get used to it IMO ..... I don't think there is any articles out regarding this .... but I have personally tried this and it works great ... Also allows you to not have to up the dosage of Hydroxy's to an unbelievable 12 a day ... I take 2 in morning and 2 at lunch ... with Therm's I take 1 a day ......

    good luck

    thanks for the responses.
    btw, is it bad or good to use xenadrine with a cycle of roids? also, do these thermogenics also increase your appetite since your metabolic rate gets increased? oh yeah, please read my post prior to this one. it wasn't answered. it was about the ingredients. thanks.

    I was on Zen for a few months because of my work sched. trying to stay awake, it worked really good but I had to keep increasing the dosage, and after about 3 1/2 months I came off. I was feeling like shit for about 2 weeks after that too! Felling all tired and unmotivated...it's definately addicting if you let it... I would suggest to cycle like Excess said, 2 weeks on 1 week off, or better 2 weeks off.

    bitter orange supposedly acts like ephedrine but milder as for the ginger root you got me, a friend took it saying it helped him focus better.
