    Anyone else have issues with taking benzodiazepine(Ambien etc) and then barley being able to workout the next day.

    I could barley do my warmup on RDL during my workout today :ugh:

    I pop two Xanax bars and drink a six pack before my ME squat days.

    I only took Ambien for sleep problems for a short period but never noticed any side effects like that.

    My stims of choice are Ergopharm AMP and Controlled Labs Red Acid.

    Ray you should give AMP a shot, it gets me focused and crazy like nothing else.

    I like AMP, it last a good 6-8hrs, but the only thing Ive noticed about AMP is if you take it for more then a week straight it doesnt have much of an effect anymore. Venom Hyperdrive was the craziest shit, like 24hrs of being wired on crack only take that if I have some major studying to do

    Redline didn't do much for me but I'm a big boy and require a lot of shit to feel any effects.

    I believe you are correct. Temazepam is tho(which is what I am currently using). LancerV, see if they can get you some tpam's and try them. i think they are less likely to cause the hangover you are having, but the body builds up a tolerance to them faster.
