So, I was wondering if anyone has noticed the same effects as I have. When I take supplements (like jack3d, Muscle Marinade, and m5) that contain DMAA, I notice that I feel almost high and just in an overall happy state of mind. I took these supplements for so long that I was starting to feel almost like I needed them to be in a decent mood, because after the crash I became irritable, angry, and just well.. almost depressed feeling.
Anyone else have similar side effects? I know I need to cycle off of stims for a while, I plan on doing this, but I just wonder if others have had bad side effects and if its the DMAA that is doing it to me.

Did you pick up any supplements that gave you a similar energy/focus that did NOT contain the 1,3?
Thanks for the reply, man.

i have never gotten high, i was just pissed off from 1mr and tingly
after i crashed (when i didnt even finish lifting) i was so tired and dead. felt like ****
after 20 or so mins tingles went away. was pretty dissapoint. im considering never buying prewo again until i hit a plateau. i seriously think i get more energy from listening to music, or motivation that is

Don't expect a supplement company to wipe your ass for you, only YOU know what you eat, which pre you take, and how much folic acid you intake daily. Supplement accordingly.-POISON

I do appreciate the input guys.
I am planning on giving Animal Rage a try soon since they do not have the 1,3 in it. Hopefully the focus it gives me will be good so I can never use 1,3 products anymore because it is not worth the depressing feeling.
Anyone tried any other PreWO that do not contain the 1,3 and still give comparable focus?

1,3 makes me very energized but also in a very good and easy mood! It's actually really nice. I find that when the effects wear off, I only go back to baseline so to speak... it's not like I get depressed or anythingMy recommended reading

To answer OP, I never experienced any side effects for 1,3, its has treated me very well but I generally use it pre-workouts only these days. Side effects vary user to user.Thermolife Eternal Rep

Some people might get the euphoric stimulant effect from it, amongst other types of stimulants. It personally makes me lightheaded.
Other stimulants have given me the elevated mood before though.Misc Strength Crew Founder.

in case you didn't know DMAA was used (and still is) as a very mild recreational drug because it gives you that euphoric feeling. It can get addictive if you are not careful and you shouldn't rely on it that much. As for the depression, it's pretty normal. As with every drug, it's the so called 'day after' effect where you are detoxing and your body needs the substance. You should cycle DMAA, give your body time to detox and always use it in moderation. Oh and yeah you do get erection problems when you are on recreational substances
