Do any of the following products by gnc, - arginmax, or horny goat weed, yohimbe, or panax ginseng- contain amphetamines, and methamphetamine s?

They can't: The answer is categorically "no way, no how! " to paraphrase the wizard of oz. The explanation is simple, anything with amphetamine in it would have to be a prescription drug and could not be purchased over-the-counter. On the other hand, anything containing methamphetamine and sold over-the-counter gets you 10-20 years in every state of the union last time I checked (unlike marijuana). ...Read more

If your vitamin d level is normal, then you may want a maintenance dose. D3 is cholecalciferol, a standard form that is taken orally.

Zero dose: There is no systematic evidence that ginseng manages anything, including stress. Ginseng is one of those bogus "ancient wisdom" things.

Took ginseng for 5 months. Developed tolerance. I'm on 1 month break. Can I take other adaptogens meanwhile or will it build even stonger tolerance?

Take a break: I've never really seen any good results from taking "adaptogens", other than anecdotal reports, so I would just take a break if you've been taking it for 5 months straight. Most herbal treatments/Chinese medications are meant to be used similar to western medicine. I.e. don't take it if you're not sick.
