    You can't go up without coming down.

    The further up you go, the further down you'll crash.

    Combining stimulants increases the side effects & the danger involved with them. But someone could always just take more of the product; however, then refer back to the first two sentences in this post.

    5 hour energy is simply a cup of coffee with lots of b12 and niacin. Comedowns are inevitable regardless of the stim used. If you don't want to feel a heavy crash, take 100mg of a b complex with 500- 1000mg korean ginseng (panax ginseng). There's still a chance of feeling a little irritable when the ginseng wears off, but its nothing compared to the comedown of any prescribed stimulant or large doses of caffeine. Valerian root is a natural herb used for its mild sedative effects. 500 to 1000mg of this can be taken when the ginseng wears off. Everything I mentioned is totally safe and legal, available at health food stores.

    Hours of energy now? No crash later? Hah!

    What I find funny is that 5 Hour Energy now has to put a disclaimer at the bottom of their advertisements stating that "no crash refers to sugar crash"..

    It is as simple as Kailey put it: the only way to avoid a caffeine crash is ingest more. But that will only postpone the inevitable. On the other hand, vitamins, especially B, help with energy. Other than that, you could make sure that you eat satisfying and healthy meals to naturally increase your metabolism/energy level.

    bad idea. energy drinks combined with amphetamines from SWIM's experience is just creates any of the jittery/heart pounding/anxiety to become much more noticeable. uncomfortable. even if it's near the comedown of the effects.

    however, SWIM finds that piracetam is the best to take if SWIM is seeking to either increase the mental effects of amphetamines or sustain the effects of the drug if it's getting close to dropoff time. much better combo than caffeine. is #1 in SWIM's book! SWIM notices better cognition/fluent speaking/optimism.
