    What are your thoughts? I figure F&N regulars would have more experience with this. Do you guys feel more alert when you're on it?

    I'm a university student with lots of homework and very little sleep. I'm looking for something (Adderall, coke, meth, etc. is out of the question) to help with the fatigue of studying on little to no sleep.

    Yes, it makes you more alert and focused.

    The problem with studying on E/C (at least for me) is that I have trouble focusing on ONE thing; thus studying on it might prove difficult.
    However, if you're dead tired and coffee isn't cutting it I would try it before taking any harder drugs.

    I used it a few times to study for finals and such. It helped, but you really have to stay focused on the one thing you're doing or your mind will wander a lot and you'll forget most of what you read.

    It will help for the time being but when you come down off it you'll feel lethargic and foggy-minded.

    I felt like a could punch a whole through walls the first couple days, but then i had a bad reaction to it. It certainly works, just be careful with it.

    could be beneficial but I would not go that route if I were you.

    Yeah, the come-down is always rough.

    But when you take your morning dose and start to come down and feel like tired-death and you take that second dose you feel like superman with all the sudden energy.

    And then the second comedown is even worse. My biggest problem is that after 1-2 weeks of even just drinking coffee, stopping means taking 2-3 days off just to do nothing because there's zero motivation and I feel depressed.

    That doesn't sound right. If that's the case you should probably take it easy with stimulants.

    For me, weed is essential with ec. Like others have said the come down is awful. At night I would get awful cramping in my stomch but if I took a couple hits it would go away :bowdown:

    Thanks for the input guys. I think I'm going to stick to lots of coffee and only use an EC stack when I'm at home, as a last resort and only during exam time.
