    I got some ephedrine recently and I just want to know the dosage to take? Also can you guys take a look at the ephedrine I bought and tell me if its any good.http://www.biotekpharm.com/product_info.php?cPath=6&products_id=14 This was the stuff on bulknutrition. The thing that I dont get is that they say its to treat asthma...?

    25mg ephedrine, 200mg caffeine (twice or three times a day)

    Ok but can you take a look at the ephedrine I bought. It has another active ingridient that is not caffeine. Also would taking 50 mg of ephedrine in one sitting before workout do it?

    Don't take 50mg at once.

    Guarifiesian or some shit, i think its to clear your nose up. Never had an effect on me. Yea, I take 50mg of eph. and 400 mg of caffeine before i go to the gym to give me a boost. See how you feel.

    Why would I take it in intervals throughout the day though? I just want one boost before workout.

    EC stack is a thermogenic (for weight loss). Its a stimulant that can indeed give you a energy boost for the gym.

    Well if you take a look at the ephedrine I bought it has no caffeine in it. Will just plain ephedrine work?

    Nope, gotta stack it with some caffiene. Go to CVS or a gas station and get some NO-Doz. 200mg caffiene

    BN is out of stock of that stuff right now :wtc:

    I'm going to have to get it from performance nutrition I guess and stack it with caffeine.

    I have athsma AND I am cutting, so hopefully it will have a duel benefit :)

    Bn stopped selling it I think. They refer to biotekpharm.com Thats where I got mine. I also dont understand why stacking it w/ caffeine would make it work. I thought ephedrine by itself works..

    ephedra is used for chest tightness and other asthma-related shit... that is why it's got that other stuff in it instead of just straight ephedrine..

    stacking it with caffeine just enhances it.. you'll get a better effect if you stack it with caffeine.

    take 25mg + 200mg caffeine at a time... don't take it before bed time (obviously) otherwise you'll have a hard time falling asleep.

    if you're taking it for fatloss (the most common reason for doing an EC stack), doing it throughout the day will help keep the thermogenic effect going all day long (in other words, more calories will be burned!)

    research before you take this shit or any other supps for that matter.. it sounds like you are the type of person that gave ephedra a bad name in the first place (not knowing what they're taking or what to do while taking it)

    also, drink lots of water as caffeine is a diuretic.

    I've done research on ephedrine and read articles on the internet. Just no articles say specifally how many mgs to take. I've also read about the EC stacks and how caffeine can help. Just looked at the ephedrine i bought a little closer and it says its for asthma..

    i remember reading that the ratio should be 10:1 caffeine to ephedrine.

    people suggest 20-25mg max because of the stimulant effects.

    Maybe I should have clarified this but the ephedrine I bought from Biotek(which is also the one listed on the BN site) has another active ingridient which I'm worried about. gauifenesin is the name that they listed. I did research and this is used to clear phlem from the chest area to help people w/ asthma. On wiki they also say that this active ingridient was also forced upon by ephedrine companies to combat recreational ephedrine users. So everyones saying that Caffeine should be stacked with it. So a Monster or a Rockstar energy drink would probably suffice?

    its part of the fat burning energy stack
    called ECA stack. not sure exactly why it also adds to the effect.

    Also anyone know the difference between ephedra and ephedrine. The only thing I know is that ephedra was banned as a supplement. Is ephdedrine just ephedra with the added Guarifiesian?

    jesus christ dude.



    I already told you it's for asthma.. drop it. unless you have chest problems, you're probably gonna be fine as long as you do everything correctly.

    don't bother with the aspirin. the aspirin has only been shown to work when taken at high dosages... taking the recommended amount that was used in the studies 3 times a day would put you at risk for developing ulcers and other gastrointestinal problems..

    bronkaid looks to be the cheapest solution. I just happened to see a 60 tablet box at VONS today. Each tablet is 25mg ephedrine. Just $12.

    Ephedra is the plant. Ephedrine is an active chemical in the ephedra plant, just like pseudoephedrine.

    It's like coffee and caffeine.

    Ephedrine is ONE alkaloid found in the ephedra herb. There are many other alkaloids in the ephedra herb, some documented, some not. The effect of ephedrine is not going to be the same as ephedra. That's like taking an amino acid and expecting it to perform like a whole protein.
