My 4th day on Bromo, 2.5mg mid morning, with standard EC dose.

I am quite surprised at how quickly I appear to have acclimated to it, compared to how I felt when I took my first dose on Friday.

On Friday, I quite literally felt as if I were going to pass out - several times in short order - each time, I took large gulps of Coca Cola, laid down on the bed and felt better within minutes. This all passed within about 5 hrs after ingestion.

I have also kept and eaten a few pieces of licorice (fat free) whenever I felt a little woozy. This seems to work.

Today, I noticed very little wooziness and now wondering whether I should go to 5mg. at some point.

10 mg of Bromo, and no side effects.
I was off Bromo for two days last weekend, started at 8 again (a bit stupid, seeing that I had been off for a couple of days), felt nausea, threw up and had to lay down on the bathroom floor. The next day I took 5 mg at around lunch, 4 hours later I peaked and felt euphoric, and the sensation lasted for several hours. Today I started at 5 mg, added 1.25 every other hour to see if I could get the same feeling or at least some side-effects to measure Bromo's effect on me, but nothing happened, I just felt a little tired after a while.

Why am I not experiencing sides on such high doses? Is my tolerance too high?
Any thoughts on this?

PS: From looking at my body in the mirror, I can clearly see differences in bodyfat, only after a couple of days.

But I'm kinda worried about not feeling any sides except from the first day. Could I actually be suffering from hyperprolactinaemia, not knowing about this whilst trying to normalize my leptin levels? How high on the dose should I go?

What's the book suggest? And some drugs show opposite effects at high vs. low doses. Or different effects in any case.

for natural bodybuilding be careful, WNBF for example polygraphs you and one of the requirements is no prescription weight loss drugs...

Bromo IS a prescription drug, it is primarily a prolactin inhibitor for the treatment of pituitary abnormalities and is also prescribed as an early treatment for Parkinson's disease.

Bromo has just recently been approved for treatment of type 2 diabetes (glucose control) under the name cycloset.

It is used OFF LABEL for weight loss (i.e. Lyle wrote a book about it, some doctors were smart enough to both read it and start thinking about it and voila - off label scripts have been written for it)

I don't understand the point of running large doses of bromo (7.5mg+). 2.5-5mg is more than enough. (From my experimentation leaner individuals should aim for the higher end while obese individuals for the lower end)

10mg is extreme over-kill. Not to mention your prolactin levels are going to be near zero at that dosage.

search for my thread on body temperature correlation using bromo at various dosing levels in a large calorie deficit.
