    I have been curious about EC for a while so I decided to give it a go. I am dosing 25/200 3x daily in 4hr intervals (8/12/4). The highs and lows are pretty obvious. I drink water like a madman but I'm gonna assume that's Caffine's diuretic effects. Coming down late in the day is pretty harsh though. Seems like my endurance (running) has dropped too. Will this go away? I am contemplating just stopping it since its not the most pleasant thing so far. 200lb male btw.

    sounds like a lot of ephedrine, but whatever works for you

    From everything I've read it seems to be the reccomended dosage.

    thats about right... the normal dosage is 25/200

    you might have wanted to start lower and work your way up

    I worked up to it (added a dose a day). I think EC just might not be for me though.

    That is most people's reaction to it the first time... myself included. It takes a couple weeks for the effects to normalize. Most people never make it that far though, cause it isn't a fun stack. I tend to get really scatterbrained and moody for at least two weeks. The crash sucks too.

    Is it even worth it if I only plan on stacking it for 2 weeks? Or will I just be getting the brunt of the sides and only a little of the good effects?

    I wouldn't bother, honestly.

    edit: Unless you are having serious hunger problems, then it may be worth it.

    Yeah I've decided to discontinue use... I got it with Mike's cutting stack so it came with syneburn which I find does seem to bunt appetite which is nice cause I don't find myself having any cravings late at night (used to be a problem for me).

    I know about the addition of aspirin but I have heard of some pretty bad sides associated with aspirin and ec. There was an article I read but I can't recall exactly where I found it. Either way I think I'm gonna drop it just cause it really just doesn't seem to agree with me.

    I take 2 3x (with meals) and I like it(for what its worth). It was only 15 for the 3 of them so I don't feel too bad chucking the e/c. I still want to try sesathin/sesamin. I almost regret not getting a bottle of that stuff instead of the cutting stack. I'll buy some when my daily runs out and I have an excuse to order more from Mike.

    after dose #2 on day one my heart went to about 160bpm and wouldn't slow down until about 10 hours later. Landed me in the ER with a heart murmer also.

    I personally wouldn't chance it.
