HOT-ROX Cycling?

I can’t sleep properly when taking HOT-ROX, even though I only take it in the AM’s. (I’m hypersensitive to stimulants). So, what I’ve been doing is not taking them on off-days and taking them on training days. Is this alright? I’m worried that I might be doing something wrong…

But, it’s impossible to be wired on HOT-ROX every day, my sleep goes to sh*t. I took it straight, 1 AM 1 PM for 2 weeks and woke up every several hours at night.

As an already lean guy who likes to drop a few pounds every now and then, using HOT-ROX about every other day has worked for me. It’s just not going to work as quickly as using it every day because (duh) it’s not in your system as frequently.

Thanks for the input! I was worried there has to be some kind of loading and maintenance with HOT-ROX because they advice to take it for long periods.

Anyone else?

maybe just suck it up? the first week pretty much i was taking it i struggled too stay asleep now i sleep longer and better than usual

I always use the absolute minimum dosing for a couple of weeks. Even though I’ve been popping stimulants since my college days (early 90’s!), whenever I try a new one, it usually messes me up a bit. The first 2 weeks on HR, I’ll only take 1 in the am.

Eventually, I’ll start with a 2nd dosing in the pm, but still only 1 at a time. Then, once I’m use to it, I’ll make it 2 in the am, and 1 in the pm (and see how my sleep patterns handle it).

I have been taking HRX for almost 3 full months, is there a time that you should stop taking it for a while? if so, for how long? this stuff is pretty addicting.
