Is there any reason why the EC stack should make you drowsy/fatigued? I used to take plain caffeine, which worked beautifully (as a stimulant), but as soon as I added ephedrine to the mix (and I tried all different doses) the same exhausted feelings took effect (although sometimes after 5 or 6 hours I might awaken).

Will the thermogenic effects be the same even if I am sleepy? (As in: should I still be taking the stack anyhow?)

Just a quick chime in, try it when you wake up in the morning, or when you are in a fasted state.

That may be the ugliest page I've ever seen.

Ha ha--I can't argue with you there.

I've had that page for years and just now (today) changed the color scheme to something that's easier on the eyes.

How long/easy is it for a person's body to get acclimated to caffeine? Recently I've been having a thermus of coffee upon waking and another at about 12 with good effects on energy/mood. Would doing this for weeks eventually decrease my sensitivity to the caffeine or not at those quantities?
