The Hydroxycut dosing guidelines will vary depending on the particular product that is used. Most of the Hydroxycut products contain stimulants (such as caffeine). If you consume large amounts of caffeine on a daily basis, you may want to take a lower Hydroxycut dosage. You may also want to take a lower Hydroxycut dosage if you experience bothersome side effects, such as jitteriness or insomnia.
An Introduction to Hydroxycut DosageEach Hydroxycut® product has a different recommended dose. As always, do not increase your Hydroxycut dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
For Hydroxycut Weight Loss Formula, the manufacturer recommends taking two caplets with eight ounces of water three times daily, about 30 to 60 minutes before meals. Do not take more than two caplets in a four-hour period, or more than six caplets a day. It is recommended that you do not take Hydroxycut within five hours of bedtime (to help prevent insomnia).
It is recommended that you start at a lower dose (one caplet three times daily) for the first three days of use, before increasing to the usual recommended dose. Also, the manufacturer of Hydroxycut recommends that this product be used for eight weeks, in conjunction with diet and exercise.
Hydroxycut 24 contains two separate formulations, one for daytime use (with stimulants) and one for evening use (without stimulants). For the first three days, the recommended dose is one "AM" caplet (30 to 60 minutes before breakfast and before lunch), followed by two "PM" caplets (30 to 60 minutes before dinner). After the first three days, the dose can be increased to two "AM" caplets (30 to 60 minutes before breakfast and before lunch), followed by two "PM" caplets (30 to 60 minutes before dinner).
You should take each dose with eight ounces of water, and you should not take more than two caplets in four hours, or more than six caplets per day. The manufacturer recommends using Hydroxycut 24 along with diet and exercise for a total of eight weeks.
