    Caffeine Sensitivity On Cycle

    Anyone else notice their caffeine Sensitivity goes up with test? Maybe in my head but I swear my morning coffee gets me pumping where I was getting to the point of needing two some days. Preworkout has the vein in my forehead bulging and if taken past 5pm there's no chance I'm sleeping till 11 or 12 whereas like I said I was tolerating it before that late and getting to bed was even gonna goto scoop and a half on it.

    Maybe all in my head? Either way not complaining!

    Testosterone increases T3 which significantly amplifies adrenergic activity so probably yah.

    Not sure how effective testosterone is on thyroid activity but have read that methyltestosterone increases T3 alot.

    I know T3 very significantly increases adrenergic activity so if test raises it at all would be a likely verdict that yes, testosterone increases caffeine sensitivity and probably other stim sensitivity

    Nope. Caffeine has zero effect on me while running gear. I can fall asleep sitting up while drinking coffee.

    Think its fair to say tren significantly effects the adrenergic system alot. Instead of feeling euphoric kind of just fucks you up tho.

    Well, I have noticed those euphoric caffeine induced effects rather when running a pct not while on a test cycle.

    I'm telling you it's like you know when your taste buds change every bunch of years and all of a sudden something tastes a little different or you like or now dislike something.

    I had a love affair with coffee. Now I barley get through a cup without not caring for it anymore. Maybe it's less the caffeine and more so the taste.

    As for my preworkout its probably the pumps and blood flow, heart rate ect increase with the added gear as opposed to the caffeine..?

    Depends on the ingredients - preworkout is a very broad term.

    99% of "Preworkouts" are junk IMO, way better options than paying for mediocre stimulants that are problematic long term. My $0.02

    I try to just get the simplest supplements for that reason, For pre caffeine, beta-alanine and l-arginine and the least amount of other crap but I'm almost out of mine, and would appreciate any suggestions on making a switch or a homemade concoction especially if it's cheaper!

    I become more sensitive to everything on cycle. I think it is because, like some of you mentioned, the nervous system is already on overdrive dealing with all the hormones, that a little coffee or (the green stuff for me) gives me way more of an effect. Couchlocked knows what I'm talking about.
