XENADRINE-NRG IS QUICK ACTING and LONG LASTING In less than
30 minutes of taking Xenadrine-NRG, you may feel its amazing
thermogenic effects and keep experiencing them for up to
8 full hours! There's never been anything like Xenadrine-NRG.
At work, in the gym or on the go, new Xenadrine-NRG can
help give you the lift you're looking for and the body everyone
else will be looking at.
I may be overly sensitive to the caffeine since not drinking coffee for the last 2 years, but for me NRG is good for the first few hours but then I always have a crash where I'm really frustrated, very aggro and irritable for hours more, and I can only assume it's a reaction to some of these ingredients. And I'm talking about taking just ONE in the morning before exercise. Anyone else find the same thing?
Scary Side EffectsJune 04, 2009
Reviewer: Naomi Osorio Walizer from Norcross GA
I am having some scary side effects since I took Xenadrine energy eight hour this morning. The recommended dosage for me was four pills. that is what I took. My face is very itchy,
I cannot concentrate very well at all. Feel really dizzy right now like I am going to pass out. I took this pill around 10:00am and it now 5:22pm. I would never recommend.

Reviewer: Anonymous from Vancouver
I am not one much for diet pills, but have had some succes in the past with a loss of 55 pounds. I have 2 heavy training schedules a year and like to tone up during those time. I am currently 6'4" 100 KG and 39 years old. I have just started and here is my schedule. 2 tablets on non-workout days and 4 on workout days. I do martial arts 3 to 4 times a week at a min 2 hours a class. I also do p90x ab ripper exercises 3 days a week. I also take a multivitamine as recommended by many diet pills. I am taking 2 GNC Mega Men sports a day. My dietary is no carbs after 7 PM and no food after 8. I eat mostly vegetables. My weight loss is not manditory, but lean muscle is at this point. Will let you know how it turns out.

Reviewer: Tired of Morrooons not using common sense from Los Angeles
This is a great energy booster tablet system. I don't write these reviews however i thought I should put in my 2 cents. First and foremost no pill will ever help you loose weight if you continue to consume more calories than you burn off. Second, any kind of pill weather good or bad will always be over used. The majority of people who complain about this pill is because they usually "over do it" if you drink 3 cups of coffee a day relax with the coffee and take 1 pill if you take theses pills then you shouldnt be drinking coffee in the first place! I love the taste of coffee in the morning also which is why I take my 1 pill at lunch time and not like they recommend 2 pills in the morning which shouldn't be taken unless you are someone who is constantly in need of energy and in desperate need of energy. And last please don't take more than 2 pills a day, i used to take 2 a day around 3pm and found myself exhausted, and why? Because I was working out! So don't take 2 pills and plan to run a mile because you will tire out after the first lap. Use common sense and use only 1 pill and 2 when you really need that energy or loose that weight (by sweat) by end of the week.
Read before you takeJuly 24, 2008
Reviewer: Kary from Los Angeles CA USA
I started taking these in high school a few years ago and they definitely gave me an energy boost. It did make me a little shaky/jittery but it didn't bother me very much. I didn't lose any lbs but it did cut out some noticeable fat and made me look thinner. I went off of them after some harassment from friends and started birth control a few months later. Stopped that, then tried NRG again after gaining a few pounds from the OC's and had a MAJOR anxiety attack. I took the recommended dose for someone trying to lose 10 lbs or less. I think it might have been the birth control that changed my anxiety or depression. I wish I could try them again because I liked what they did but now i feel like I have heart or lung problems. i often get sharp pains in my chest and I dont know if its from the diet pills or me being a hypochondriac. Be VERY VERY careful when using these. They could mess you up for life. Really consider other options before taking any kind of diet pill. Also, after you stop taking the pills you will most likely gain any lost weight back.
it works butJuly 16, 2008
Reviewer: Dave from Canada
I must say, t works but you have to do something on your own like exercicing and dieting, it'll go faster. I read the reviews and some were complainning about chest pains etc. I'm already a coffee addict, so no pains for me but I noticed a nice boost of energy throughout the day since I take the pills at around noon ( I still need the taste of coffee in the morning).

How to make it worksNovember 23, 2007
Reviewer: Amazon from Anytown, AT 55555
Xenadrine nrg is a stimulant just like ephedrine or amphetamine because it contains a significant amount of caffeine. However, it is a mild form of stimulant. When using any kind of stimulants, please consume vitamin b complex, at least 1000mg calcium and 500mg magnesium 3 hours prior to consume the stimulant. This is to avoid jittery, nervousness and heart palpitation due to overstimulating nervous system and adrenal gland cause by the stimulant. 1 hour after consume any type of stimulant, please consume at least 1000mg vitamin c and multi vitamin to detox the body from free radicals. Use this formula and xenadrine nrg before a high intensity exercise....you can get the natural high, energy boost and burning that stubborn fat. Enjoy!

Almost killed meAugust 16, 2007
Reviewer: Joe from Alaska
Used it for 5 months, worked out and lost a lot of weight (gave energy to build muscle too), but developed almost a dependancy. That turned into horrible insomnia (not just trouble sleeping, NO SLEEP, for days, and trust me that MESSES you up ) ended up in the hospital, no appetite, paranoid, chest pain, couldn't concentrate, delusional, couldn't control emotions, thought I was losing my mind, VERY VERY VERY scary experience. This happened in the Caribbean, and the doctors gave me such an extreme dose of narcotics (for my nerves and to help me sleep) it almost poisoned me to death. Doctors couldn't figure out the problem, neither could I, lots of tests, went home to Canada, I stopped using xenadrine by this time, suffered from some kind of withdrawal, more insomnia. Whole ordeal lasted a few months. The Lord gave me the strength to get through it, and I did, I'm totally fine now. But I thought I had lost my mind or had some tropical parasite, I realize now it was those "harmless" diet pills. Maybe I wasn't following the directions or taking too many,regardless, they messed me up for a while.

I thought I'd try NRG since I experienced great results with EFX with no side effects.
Within hours of consuming the first NRG pill I felt nauseous and disoriented. The next day I took the pill again with similar results.
I threw away the pills and returned to EFX. I guess my experience just shows that individuals respond differently to supplements.

Reviewer: The truth from San Diego, CA USA
I tried Xenadrine NRG for 2 months. I really stuck to my diet and there was no difference between being on it or not on it other than the fact that it gave me energy in the morning when I took it and throughout the day. I would suggest trying something else because it did not help me to loose the weight. I then went on the HMR diet plan and lost about 1lb every 2 days. So far I have been on it for not even a week and I have already lost 5 lbs. This is something to try, just order them online and pick them up at the nearest store to you. The chocolate shakes are really good and so are the penut butter bars and the chicken soup. I have about 550 calories a day and I feel great! Its a low caloric intake but vitamins come with the packets and you can opt for a higher calorie option as well if needed.

Not very effective...April 21, 2007
Reviewer: Walt from Baltimore, Maryland
I tried Xenadrine NRG with poor results. I am a healthy male 6'1" and 230 lbs. My goal was to lose around 25 lbs. Xenadrine NRG is loaded with caffeine, which does provide an energy boost. However, I noticed my appetite INCREASED instead of decreasing. I found myself snacking all day long and well into the night. Needless to say, I didn't lose any weight after finishing the bottle and I won't be buying any more.

Reviewer: CHRISTIN from ALABAMA USA
I gained 60 lbs during my pregnancy and I tried very hard to lose weight after I gave birth to my daugter. I started taking Xenadrine NRG 8-hour because I remembered taking it in high school and it did not give my any negative side effects. I love the 8-hour. I did not lose any weight but I did maintain a very productive, positive, and energetic state throughout the whole day. I was able to participate in interacting with my family instead of watching tv all day/night. I always felt like going and doing stuff, going to the park, walking the block, etc. As far as weight loss I did not lose but I enjoyed the high energy levels. I recently stopped taking it and I am trying Ripped Fuel ephedra free.

This product is GREAT but not for everyoneMarch 07, 2007
Reviewer: LaImagen from Texas
I really like this product. It has given me results that I personally like (toned arms/abs). If taken correctly (and before your work out) it gives you that extra energy boost. The downside is that it will make you "crash" when the effects go away.
Also, in my case, when I decide to have light workouts (walk in the park with the kids) instead of moderate/intense workouts at the gym my heart rate goes crazy and honestly a bit scary.
Possibly it's just me. Just pay attention to your body and know your limits.

Trail - Error - SuccessMarch 01, 2007
Reviewer: Hoostompa from USOFA
True account, no games: I work 2 jobs consecutively 5 1/2 days a week(1 office, 1 physical). Started NRG last year with no results due to failure to read instructions thru. Just major buzz due to coffee mix. Read instructions? 1. no coffee(oh) 2. take 1-4 pills based on weight(double oh! 3. sensible diet(say no!) 4. exersise. 2nd trail I followed steps & notice energy increase, cravings lowered, and weight started dropping. Its was working & worked off aprx 35 - 45lbs over aprx 4months. Put 10 back on to date. My intial weight was 280 something & I wanted around 220ish. Stopped at 240 due to noticable fatigue & dehydration bought on by myself trying to starve to 220 since so close. It worked for me. My diet cut out the sweets, red meat(90%), all diet & regular drinks(except tea), all caffeine drinks, dairy products(unless necessary), bread, fried stuff & as many unhealthy products as found. Baked, boiled, rotisseried & overfried anything were key. Stopped eating food after 7pm daily unless is was veggies or fruits. Ever had a can of string beans mixed with corn in a big bowl at 11 at night? Its great, filling, and non-guilty!! Oh yeah, it had butter salt & pepper!!! I also had 1 day during the week I could enjoy what I wanted respectively. I didnt really have an excersize program due to work schedule but my late job gave me that excersize to burn & earn at the same time. Bottom line is you have to use the pills correct and follow the instutions & stick to you diet plan for ANYTHING to work. By the way, I did notice the pounds coming off slow as I downsized. Not sure if was my doing or not. I started my 3rd trail 3 days ago, 7months later to get to or below my wanna-weight. Good luck to you.

I stopped taking these pills after two weeks. After reading other user reveiws, I was disappointed because I didn't feel a boost in my energy level at all.

I actually ate more while I was taking these pills than before I ever started.

It's already been a week since I've used Xenadrine and I must say that it's really working for me. It didn't have any side effect on me (yet). It really gives an energy boost! The first day I used it, my officemates kinda noticed that I was really hyper. I'd always hear them say "Slow down, Carlo..."
Then that night, I played badminton. Man, that must've been my best badminton games ever. I used to play for like an hour only. But thanks to Xenadrine, I played for like 2 hours and I didn't get tired at all! It also helps me a lot when I go to the gym. It helps me carry more weight, makes me sweat more, makes me lessen my appetite...I really love it!
I'd continue using this. Will give a writeup again after a month. I was 178lbs before I started. I'm now around 175lbs.

I started out slow, like the bottle requested and only took one pill for about a week. I definetly noticed that i was awake a lot more than usual. Then i bumped it up to two pills a day. I never saw any weight change. I weighed myself and there was no difference. I drank tons of water as well, since this is a diaretic and that just made me have to pee every 1/2 hour. I work out 4 times a week and that didn't even help. I'm sure i picked up alittle muscle along the way but that really wasn't my goal.
I was on vacation and forgot to bring the pills with me, BIG MISTAKE. I'm not a coffee drinker and i don't drink soda every day so I've never been addicted to caffine. I experienced a terrible caffine headache for the first day and a 1/2 of my vacation :( It subsided after the second day and i vowed never to take the pills again.
Make sure you wean yourself off of these.

I started with Xenadrine NRG when i was 19, id put on about 20 pounds after moving to england. after 2 weeks of taking it id lost 10 pounds and carried on to loose about 3 to 4 pounds every week after that. i did see that my body started getting used to it and weight loss became less and less but i reached my goal weight within 2 months though so was thrilled! the only thing i could complain about was that i got addicted to the pills and ended up anorexic. im not entirely blaming the pills as i had my own issues but they definately made it easier not to eat and gave me energy when i should have been really weak. but for anyone seriously struggling with their weight, and are genuinly overweight, i strongly recommend xenadrine... with caution.

Nausea all day longJune 06, 2006
Reviewer: MC from Venezuela
Today is my second day taking the pills. I took only two pills yesterday and two this morning. I've a headache since yesterday and I feel very sick: nausea and upset stomach. On the other hand, and this is very ironic, I was pretty energetic during my workout yesterday. I'll give it one day or two, but if the sickness continues, I'm not taking these pills ever again.

The New Guy Thanks to Xenadrine nrgMay 15, 2006
Reviewer: Jr. from Chicago Illinois
Well Xenadrine NRG is the first fat burner that i have used and well it works great i was 245 lbs and now i'm at 220 lbs in only 4 weeks of weigth lifting and 30 mins of cardio every day i have not suffered any side effects. i started with 1 pill a day but after a week i went to 2 a day this pills work great along with exercise and not a diet but portion controlled meals along with a lot of water and fruits to have a lot of fiber in the mix ( i eat from burgers to pizza to hot dogs). I have to use the can 30 mins after a meal but thats because of a faster metabolism so you know it works. I am now at my 4th week but i have not lost any weight instead i have gained 2 lbs of muscle i looked at the mirror and i saw my arms more defined my chest is getting more defined and my stomach is getting into 6pack condition but all of that is thanks to working out at home and drinking a lot of water to aid in the fat burning proceses.
also my girl is very pleased with me. With increased blood flow you can perform better and longer.
If your goal is to get into a swim suit this summer start right now with this pills and a good workout along with 30 mins of cardio every day and no matter if you're a guy or a girl you will notice results fast.
I will post 2 weeks from today MAY-15-06 so i can let you know if i lost weight or gained any and to see if my muscles got bigger or not
Good luck to all of you in the fight against FAT

I've tried a couple of fat burners such as hydroxycut hardcore,hot-rox and the list goes on.
A while ago I read an article about xenadrine nrg saying it gives you energy for 8 full hrs.
So I bought it at gnc and damn does pills are good. It gave unlimited energy and fat burning. I drink lots of water and play basketball and do tae-bo and I'm never tired!!!! So if anyone is looking for the ultimate pill look no further!!!!!

Works, but I feel so sick!April 20, 2006
Reviewer: Lori from Boston, MA
I've been exercising and doing light weights for the past year and hit a weightloss plateau about 5 months ago. Frustrated with my inabilty to drop those last 10 pounds to my ideal weight, I started taking Xenadrine NRG, which is easier to swallow than other weightloss capsules. It has worked miraculously--in a 5 days, I've lost 5 pounds. Now I'm actually a bit scared by how quickly this thing is working. As far as side effects, I have been ravenously hungry all week, and today I am sick to the stomach. I was so dizzy and nauseaous that today I had to cut my usual workout about 20 minutes short. Needless to say, I am discontinuing use, at least until I hit my next plateau. Hopefully, the 5 pounds will stay off, and this will have been just what I need to jumpstart my metabolism.
The Best Pill Ever Tried!!!March 11, 2006
Reviewer: Nini from Washington, DC
I'm a 21 year old female who just about 4 days ago weighed in at 201. Since starting Xendrine NRG, I now weigh 187 as of this morning! My goal is to get down to 150. In order to not build up tolerance to these pills, I plan on stopping use for 2 weeks and using another brand of pill. I also take a B12 pill each morning. Just 2 weeks ago I had purchased the EFX formula and found that after a few days of using this, I was building up tolerance too fast. So I went to walmart, and this other shopper told me that the NRG formula worked really well for her. Man, the first day I took them, I had so much energy only 20 minutes later. I take 2 in the morning and if I need energy in the evening, I'll take 1 more around 4 pm. It gives me the energy to workout longer and it makes me want to eat better. THESE PILLS WILL NOT WORK WITHOUT YOU PUTTING IN SOME WORK! Meaning, please atleast exercise. You do want the weight to stay off, right?
what a great productJanuary 16, 2006
Reviewer: Janis from Miami, FL
I started taking Xenadrine NRG, and after the first week I saw a difference. I lost 20 pounds after the first month and I didn't really excercise but I did watch what I ate. As far as side effects goes, I did go to the restroom alot and was a little jittery.
good extended release formulaDecember 14, 2005
Reviewer: New to the game of diet pills from Los Angeles, CA
Xenadrine NRG delivers what it states- extended release caffiene. That is the best way to get caffiene. Personally I can never sip slowly on my cofee. When taking this pill - DO NOT DRINK CAFFIENATED BEVERAGE. I don't drink any and don't have any major side effects.
The key is to start with just one pill a day (I take mine in the morning). The energy boost is great, the mood change is great and the weight loss is great. I would recommend this to anyone who drinks 1-2 cups of coffee everyday. If you're not you are bound to get sleepless, restless, jittery, stomach upset- ie all the nasty stuff everyone talks about. Another part is tolerance and addiction potential. Like coffee, you wil ldevelop tolerance- ie your body needs more to get the same effect- that's true of coffee when had everyday too. So might need to adjust dosage- take 2 pills instead of one- preferably before 4pm. Make sure you eat right, otherwise you might undermine your weight loss. Eat 4-5 small meals w/ protein as part of meals atlest for 3-4 meals. I count calories and eat lots of fruits, daily mutilvitamin and drink atleast 70 ounces of water. This drug does have diuretic effects but stick with the water- your kidneys need it to detox u.
The only side effect I've had is mild nausea (mostly 1 hrs after taking it in mornings) and upset stomach only on high stress days. Total number of days of nausea = 3 in 5 weeks. I'm sure I'm pretty addicted to it too. Love it for energy, weight loss, mood and sex drive!

Reviewer: Anne from Florida
Ok I have to say I did lose about 7 pounds with in the first week of using this, but the side affects were not worth it.. I am a really out going and happy person and this product made me feel more depressed and angry than I have felt in years, to the point that I felt like I couldn't get out of bed.(yet I was restless and amped up from all the caffeine) It does curb your appetite..but through nausea, I felt like I was going to throw up for a week.
My heart is still pounding and I have been off this for a week.
The weightloss just wasn't worth it!
DAY ONENovember 28, 2005
Reviewer: Meeh from oregon
okay. so i just started today and I feel that I may have over did it. I have a medium build but due to heavy bones I am placed in the 3 pill category.. although most would think I should be in the 2. But anyway.. so day one I took 3 pills at one time. BIG MISTAKE!! not even 30 minutes later I was in the gym unable to stop myself from pacing back and forth.. talk about caffeine ovedose..lol. I literally felt that I had to keep moving. I had all this energy in me that had to be realeased. So i guess, in a work-out sense, that was a good thing.. I just didn't like the feeling of being out of control.
On top of that.. I was soooo HUNGRY. I could not even concentrate on my work-out because my stomach felt so empty, so I ran ustairs and bought me a power bar (that was all they had).. thankfully, the powerbar did not add to my energy and it took the focus off my belly :)>
An hour and a half later I was back to being hungry again.. I took the pill at 4 pm. and within the 8 hour period I ate a total of two full meals, 4 different snacks, and had dessert!! The odd thing about it htough is that I don't feel bad about it. I honestly feel that the hunger is a result of the increase in metabolism. We'll see if this continues throughout the week.
As for bowel movements.. I have no complaints. I would rather get it out of me than keep it in.. and as long as it's coming out in a hea;thy form than it's all good. One thing's for sure though.. your sex drive is pretty high!!
I'll keep you posted if there's any weight loss at the end of the week.

The bowel movementsOctober 10, 2005
Reviewer: Mike from Memphis Tn
I don't know why you are all complaining about the bowel movements, its actually been proven that 3 bowel movements a day is good for you expecially right after you eat what could be better than eating something and then having it cume right back out. So your actually loosing weight by going to the bathroom. So the more the better I say. I would also sugest a candida and coloin cleansing I lost 20 pounds doing that alone.
Works..for a whileOctober 10, 2005
Reviewer: Anonymous from WI
I guess everyone reacts to the formula different. I myself never got the bowel movement increase. Caffeine did hit though. Some people say it helped them with workouts, it actually worked against me. I can do a 50min spinning class, then jump on the elyptical for another 30. With NRG, I just could even finish the 50 min class. But...your metabolism is increased through different pathways with NRG, so you burn more fat when not in the gym.
I reccomend it in the morning before going to work (2 pills) then one in the afternoon (to get you to the gym), then take something that increases or regulates thyroid production (guggl for instance).
You will feel burnt in the evening, because increased metabolism just burns you out! The older you are, the less sleep you ned, right? Well, where do you think that comes from? decreased metabolism...increase metabolism enough, you can probably go to sleeping 9-10 hours a night again, like hen you were 15. Specially if you excercise (muscles grow/are repaired at rest).
I reccomend to cycle this product. After a while, your body gecomes used to the caffeine, so it will not work as much. switch between caffeine and synephrine based stimulants. And use a non-stimulant one for later in the day (Xenadrine 40+ contains no caffeine).
I lost 12 lbs the first time I went on this, I am going on NRG again tomorrow, after a 2 month rest on SAN Tight (synephrine based, among others...also contains guggul).
Make sure you increase protein intake! do 5 small meals a day, taking protein on each meal. Dont want to loose your hard-earned muscles, and the ones that actually burn the fat! In other words, dont starve your body. it works against you. Eat healthy, but EAT!
Sensitive to caffeine? Be careful!October 03, 2005
Reviewer: Msfinance from Minneapolis, MN
Switched 2 this after much success w/Xena EFX (2 per day lost those last 20 lbs with nutrition and exercise). I'm sensitive 2 stimulants so 2 of these was too much! Be careful with your "build up" to the regular dosage - sounds fluffy, but use them as they work best for you. NRG sent me to the hospital
Boost Of EnergySeptember 20, 2005
Reviewer: Lisa from IN
I have been taking NRG 8 for two days. I know it is not enough time to see the side effects, but the energy boost is great. I take two in the morning before breakfast and one tablet around 2pm. I has kept me alert and motivated at work and when I get home I still feel motivated. I usually go to bed around 10pm and I fall right asleep. I am 5'4 and around 160, so we will see if this is the right supressant for me. I am on a 1400 calorie diet and maybe (fingers crossed) this will boost my weight loss. I will post another review in a couple weeks or so.
I stopped taking it!September 03, 2005
Reviewer: Filipe from Sao Paulo, Brazil
Here are my comments about Xenadrine NRG. The positive side of taking it is the mass energy boost. Half an hour after taking it I could do my cardio exercise without getting tired, really amazing. I could run really fast for a long time. Despite the positive effects, the side effects were worse than I thought it would be. I felt some shakeness, accelerated heart beat and the worst side effect for me, difficult in breathing. I felt great during the 8 hours after the intake of half the dose (just one pill). But, after these 8 hours, the side effects came up. I started to have difficult in breathing, making me stop what I was doing to have a deep breath. That is an horrible feeling. I really dont know why that happens, I thouht that it was because I got over my limits doing my cardio. I stopped taking it for one day. The next day I took it again but did a normal cardio training without getting over my limits. Unfortunnatly, I felt the same side effects after 8 hours. After taking just 3 pills I ‘ll stop taking it! The side effects make me think in such a problem like a stroke or something. I dont care about the money I spent, a healthy body is more important.
good and badAugust 28, 2005
Reviewer: Anonymous from Anytown, AT 55555
i tried xenadrine nrg for a couple weeks. when i first took it, the energy boost was awesome. i found the intensity of the energy boost decreased the second day i took it, by a lot. there after it was only a slight increase in energy. i did not notice significant weight lose, but i did not exercise very regularly. other side effects i had (which did not decrease), were: irritability...big time, bowel movements...more often and,um, mushier, cramping, sudden shakey hunger (from the caffeine), i think it also made me have difficulty sleeping, but it's hard to tell that with me. so, overall, the initial buzz rocks, but it doesn't keep. and the other side effects are lousy. but perhaps it will work better for those who use it more efficiently.
goodJuly 28, 2005
Reviewer: Lynn from Florida
i've noticed by reading all the reviews that most people complain about excessive bowel movements. most diet pills will do that to you because of all the nutrients in the pills. I've also noticed that in order to see good and maybe fast results from any diet pill or patch you need to be considered overweight or very over weight if you only have 20 or so pounds to loose i would reccommend water pills. I have had no complaints about Xenadrine I am about 100 pounds over weight and when i started xenadrine i noticed i was loosing about 4 pounds a week. i never changed my eating habits but i did start walking, and still i'm loosing.. so in my opinion i would rather have a side effect of bowel movements and headaches than to get so fat that i die of a stroke or heart attack.. thank you xenadrine for helping me loose weight and become a better person.
Xenadrine side effectsJuly 27, 2005
Reviewer: Anonymous from Chicago, IL
Xenadrine NRG is the first diet pill I've used. I've been on it for a few weeks, and I wanted to respond to some of the other reviews I've read on this site. First of all, I don't believe that anything in the product can be considered a laxative. Also, I was a lot more jittery for the first few hours after taking it, but that's a result of the caffeine in the pills. When I started taking one less pill a day, the side effect went away. After working out, I do feel burnt out at the end of the day, but once again, that's a side effect of the caffeine. Caffeine will increase your energy for a few hours, but it's not permanent and it usually causes that burnt out feeling when the effects wear off. Last, the caffeine has also caused my resting heart rate to increase. I honestly can't say that the pill is causing my weight loss, but I've noticed that the few days I was off the pills I didn't lose as much weight as I was on them, even though I was eating and exercising the same.
Seems to be workingJune 10, 2005
Reviewer: Darrin from Brentwood, CA
I have been using this product now for about 1 week and I can certainly tell a difference. One thing I noticed is that when I take this product on a non workout day I feel just a little bit jittery. To combat that, I lower my dose for that day. On days that I am going to be physical I take the recommended dose (with no side effects at all) and it really gives me a great boost. I am able to work out longer and burn more calories which we all know is the real way to really achieve weight loss. Taking this product with a good work out should work for most people. Taking this product and sitting on your but, you will not see any results.

Reviewer: Angelo from Carolina, Puerto Rico
I've been taking NRG and I lost 30 lbs in 3 months, I used to take 2 a day but after 2 days I switched to 1 a day because I noticed that I had a hard time falling asleep. I do feel more energy and sometimes jittery.
I noticed that I have to take the pill in the morning so that I can get some sleep at night (I go to bed around 11pm) I am 42, 6' tall, I used to be 230lbs now I am at 202lbs, Once I lost those pounds I was really motivated and didn't want to do anything to screw it up and gain the weight back. My goal is 190lbs. I did change my eating habits, no more snacks, I eat less sugar, drink more water, and my dinner portions are smaller.

I took my first dose of Xenadrine NRG 8-hour this morning... 2 tablets. I think maybe I should have started with one. Anyway, WOW, with the energy I have right now, I could get all kinds of things done. I feel a little jittery and my RHR is about 84, a little high for me. I don't feel sick or nauseous at all. I feel like I could run a marathon! I am mostly looking for appetite suppression but any extra energy is great. Maybe now I'll get motivated to start exercising. So far, I like it.
Great Fat Burner!May 18, 2005
Reviewer: Nikki from CA, USA
I've used Xenadrine RFA-1 - Which I loved but it cause anxiety, heart palpitations, then was later banned etc. I've used EFX- which I hated, and now I'm trying NRG. All I can say is I am seeing great results with minimum side effects and I am loving it, I've been taking 2 pills a day for about 2 weeks now and have lost 7 pounds! Yes, I have been working out and watching my diet - there is no easy way around this, but if you are willing to make a little effort it goes a loooong way, longer than if you weren't taking the suppliment. Going to the bathroom- I have noticed that I go a little more frequently, but nothing major - better to flush it out then to keep it in!! This is my 2 cents & I hope it helps!

Don't like XenadrineMarch 10, 2005
Reviewer: Elliot from Virginia Beach, VA, USA
I don't like this product. I'll start off by saying that I am not able to rate its effectiveness as a fat burner, because I discontinued use after 15 days, but I think there are other concerns which make its effectiveness irrelevant:
#1 It's a laxative. Taking this junk, I usually have 3 or 4 bowl movements per day. That's just a pain in the ass.
#2 It causes a high-low. When experiencing the effects of this medication, you definitely feel warmer and more "up". My heart rate is elevated from about 65bpm to 75bpm resting. HOWEVER, similar to the effects of marijuana, while raising your resting heart rate, it also makes you(me, at least) physically lazy. I am less inclined to want to do my daily run, which is usually the highlight of my day. When I *am* running, I get tired sooner and tend to feel shorter of breath.
I find that I usually get tired sooner when weight training as well.
#3 It puts me to sleep. This one may sound hard to swallow, considering it has caffeine in it. And certainly, I feel the effects of the caffeine. Once again, though, similar to marijuana, I am occasionally struck by a strange feeling in my stomach accompanied by a distinct desire to lie down. There is no discomfort in my stomach, just a strangeness. If I do lie down, I have trouble getting back up and usually fall asleep. I find that I nap much more frequently when taking this pill. Taking naps is BAD for keeping up that metabolism!
#4 It creates in me a feeling of anxiety similar to Ritalin or any other serotonin- re-uptake inhibitor. This makes sense because L-Tyrosine is the base amino acid in the synthesis of Serotonin (and Dopamine) and so it has similar effects.
I don't recommend this drug to anyone. Healthiness is not merely a matter of weight or fat percentage, but a well being of the body which begins with a natural and impairment-free sense of wellness and naturalness.
However, one thing that definetly works and has no side effects that I take is Tonalin CLA.
Addictive..... But keeps you moving!January 29, 2005
Reviewer: Doug from Wilmington, NC USA
I have been using the new NRG for about 4 weeks now and I new the side affect included light headaches but I only get the headaches when the dose wears off, just found that out this week! So I went to the Doc. and he told me to stop using it watch my diet and and he put me on a work out plan.(Addictive) The only time I didn't have a headache was when I was dosed up. As a Fat Burner, it works good I guess it keep me running to the bath room and the Caffeine in it keep me moving (I guess cause I don't usually care for any Caffeine products.)
If you don't get the headaches like I did it might be good for you, like I said it worked but the side affect for me were a little overwhelming!

I have been using Xenadrine for a month now and except for a "gaseous" stomach, which I suppose is good, I don't feel any side effect so far.The power surge serves me well though I can't agree that the "energy" it gives really lasts 8 hours because it doesn't, at least for me.though overall, it's the best I have tried so far and I'm still losing unwanted body fats.
