Below are the official instructions from the original bottle of OxyELITE Pro. The instructions also apply to the new formula (the purple top bottle), which is available more internationally. The original bottle is mainly sold in the US, and is our preferred product.
For any of these products, one thing to note is that it’s not always super cut and dry. You start with the main instructions, and never go over the max dosage — but the actual timing could be shifted here or there.
Differences Between the New and Old Formula Instructions
One difference between the new formula and the old is that the new formula’s bottle says to take the second dosage 5-6 hours after the first dosage. It really comes down to your personal preference and what truly works for you and your schedule, however.
Buy OxyELITE Pro at:
You don’t want to take the second dosage too close to bed (it contains stimulants and can easily keep you up – see our ingredients page), but you don’t want to overload too close to the first one either. Check out http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/health/public/sleep/yg_slp.htm for tips on getting healthy sleep.
We personally prefer 6-7 hours between dosages (We are not USPLabs Reps, so take that into consideration) – that is just our preference for max long-term energy.
Now, on to the official instructions:
