I have been taking Spike for about a month now and I really do not feel anything; definitely nothing near as powerful as Tim claims. I can take two capsules of Spike and in 15 minutes, promptly fall asleep without problem.
Power Drive on the other hand… that stuff kicks my ass! I have been taking it almost since it first came out and it always gets me ramped up for a workout. Sleep after taking Power Drive? Fuggedaboutit!
Has anybody else compared Spike with Power Drive? What is your experience?[/quote]
Myself, and I would tend to think most others, would have an opposite response. Even simply considering the relatively small amount of caffeine in Spike, it alone is enough to where most wouldn’t be able to sleep immediately after taking it. Conversely, with Power Drive, at least in terms of catecholamine levels, you’re simply providing more substrate for a system which can be saturated relatively easily, so a strong stimulatory effect is much less likely.
I would have to say I find your particular responses to both products to be an interesting anomaly.
