In that case, I would recommend staying away from it. I tried a similar concoction one year when I was having allergy problems (it was mid season by that point and it probably wouldn't have been until summer until I could have gotten on anything prescription) to open up my breathing. It worked incredibly well and was quite a boost, but within a few workouts it had me dry heaving immediately and feeling like my heart was about to explode. Not worth it. I decided to just put up with the breathing problems and I've never had the allergies since that season.

I don't think it was that many. One or two a day seems closer, but this was 5 or 6 years ago and I only took them for about a week... Plus, not the same exact thing, so a direct comparison probably isn't meaningful.

Keep in mind that running at any level that tests for drugs will get you disqualified.

Obviously, not everyone has as severe a reaction to the ephidrine/ma huang combo as me, but I just don't trust it. Talking to other people, it seems to build a dependency to some degree, losing its effect over time and making you feel extra flat if you don't take it.

Eerie timing, considering my description above. The following link was just posted to the t-and-f list:

http://my.aol.com/news/news_story.psp?type=1&cat=0200&id=0109051718450322

Hopefully, they'll be leaving that story up.

Dan, you were using this for allergies? I stopped using it and was sick with allergies and sinus infections for the next 5 weeks. Do you think there is any connectionn? I do suffer from allergies but generally no where near this severe.

I doubt there is any connection, at least not a direct one. I tried the ephedrine purely to open up my bronchial tubes, which is effectively what prescription allergy medication would have done. If that's all the ephedrine did, I would have been happy with it...
