Ergopharm Amp
 
Okay, so I bought into the hype on this product and purchased a bottle from BN the other week. I took it at recommended dosage (2-4 caps at one time) and went to workout about 45 mins later, plenty of time let it get into my system. This stuff is pretty weak in my opinion, the only thing i got from it was a mild sweat and a headache. On top of that, they recommend only using 3 times a week so not to get used to it. Everytime the effects were the same, nothing I would even classify as being AMP'ed up or anything. The only positive thing I felt from it was during cardio, I felt as if I could go a little longer than usual.

Now I am pretty familiar with using ECY stacks, clen, and other energy/thermogenics and have to say this is one of the most overrated ones to date. I will stick to my homemade stacks or Lipo 6 + Ephedrine stack for now on, hasn't failed me yet.

Any one else have any negative or positive experiences with AMP? I just couldn't believe how many good things I heard about it only to be let down in my personal experience. Maybe it was just one mans experience but I had to share since I haven't seen too many negative reviews of this product.

I fell prey to the hype also... It is a decent product, and I think I ended up paying $28 or so at vitaplus.

I bought it as a pre workout stim. I have read reviews that say it amps them up, and then they crash like 4hs later.... I wish.

the first time I took it was on a saturday morning after a night of boozing. I got 1-2 hrs sleep, and I wanted a kickstart. I went to an interview type thing for Grad school, basically give them my money. I got there, but didnt have my transcripts or anything, so I had to take a profeciency test.... I think the amp helped me have a clear mind, I guess, Not a stim hyper type.

Second -4th time, tried it on workout days. It did not give me an explosiveness, but it did give me a level head, and I imagined myself a lot more before doing the excercises, moving the weight. So i was pumped before starting to move the weight. This is a good thing to do when pushing the weight. I usually have a scattered thought process when it comes to lifting, and I am always thinking of something else. I will try working out without it tomorrow to see how it is.

I think it helps with focus, and I find that a positive for myself.

I did have my brother take 2 before a workout. He said he did not feel anything, but that he couldnt sleep that night, restlessness. He does not do any sort of stimulants at all. and does not take any other supps than creatine and protein drinks.

Im sticking with EC for now, until I run out, then Ill stick with mind enhancers. I do much better without added stimuli. To note, I have done amp at 2 cap and 3 cap dose, I have not tried 4 yet. The pills are bright red, so you know if you drop it, or try to think if you had one, you will remember the pill. Kinda like the bright ass yellow CEE.

I gotta disagree guys, I bought a bottle and i love this stuff. 3-4 caps on an empty stomach and i'm flying for atleast 3 hours. there is a possibility you are a non responder, or perhaps you need more of it to work for you. I will say it is far from cost effecitive though, shit is exspensive, and taking 4 pills of it at a clip makes it go quick.

I usually save it for low carb workouts an shit like that, you know, when you really need an extra boost.

I think it has alot to do with what you are used to. I frequently take a lipo 6 and ephedrine stack and even though I do it on a 2 week on/1 week off cycle, I think it makes other thermogenics seem weak to me.

You are right about the cost though, that alone is going to keep me from trying it again.

lipo ephedra stack is prob. the most effective fat burning stim stack i've ever used. that shit had me flying for weeks on end. that with sesathin, and mdien was one of the best cutters i've done ... then i was a dumbass and bulked for 6 months, so needless to say i got fat an lazy again hahaha.

if you guys dont like the amp, feel free to send it my way :D

Yeah, Im probably not as responsive to this. I have been on EC for a while, and used to it. I went up to 5 caps to check it out. Dod nothing more than 2 caps.

My brother tho, He says he loves the stuff now. he says he will take 2 in the morning along with his regular redbull, and he is good to go. Different people respond differently.

The only wat to really find out is to try it.

I think it's contributed to a built up tolerance. I use caffeine pills esp. during a long 12 hour night shift. I started off with 2 pills (400 mg.) and was zooming fine. Now I could take 3 pills at once and not feel a thing. I'm not sure, but the lipo/ephedra has alot more zoom :D than amp does. If you're used to alot of ephedra alkaloids then switch to something like amp with 200 mg or so of caffeine, you won't feel a thing IMO.
