    How much is "too much"???.What kinda doses and at what times are you taking them.Please write this out so people can help/advise you better.

    Tribulus is usually taken in doses of 500-1000mg 3 times a day.

    Arginien depending what kind is a few grams pre workout and maybe before bed if being used for GH secretion(not saying it works for that).

I left the crate on my stoop and went in to get something and I returned to see the sanitation man put the crate into the crusher. I rushed him and caught him flush on the temple with a titanic right hand he was out cold, convulsing on the floor like a infantile retard." -Mike Tyson

    1000mg = 1 gram.

    The Arginine and Tribulus doses look good.Are you takin the Arginine pre-workout??

    The Carnitine is low,most people take atleast a gram at a time a few times a day.Is this also pre-workout for fat loss effect??

    The Lysine I can't really comment on as I have never supplemented with it myself,I know if you get Cold Sores,Arginine may cause them to pop up so you take Lysine to counter this effect.

    if its natural you can't take too much!

    L-Arginine, L-Lysine, and L-Carnitine are natural aminos, therefore you body will be able to metabolise any amounts that are not used without harming your kidneys and liver. These are not animal steroids or synthetic steroids, which are foreign to the human liver.

    Make sure you drink plenty of water

    If you are taking more than 1500 mg a day of L-Carnitine, make sure that you listen to your body and drink plenty of water to help your liver metabolise any amounts not used. If you do not feel good, go ahead and ease back. The good thing is that L-Carnitine is found naturally in foods and there is little danger in taking to much, for this reason! More than 1500 mg a workout is usually more than enough!!
